Philadelphia 76ers rally to stun Boston Celtics 105-99 - Mar 20, 2017

Robert
Covington
Save this performance for the highlight reel: Clutch shots. A raucous home crowd. The type of comeback that embodies a team's toughness. Yes, it was a victory in a festive atmosphere worthy of a playoff bound team, though it was the so-so 76ers - not first-place Boston - that made a dogged push for a go-wild win. Robert Covington (6'9''-F-90, college: Tennessee St.) made the go-ahead 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 105-99 win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday. Dario Saric (6'10''-PF-94, agency: BeoBasket) scored key baskets to extend the lead and bolster his bid for NBA Rookie of the Year. Saric scored 23 points and helped rally the Sixers from a 13-point hole in the third. "I think the toughness and determination that they repetitively show isn't a fluke, it's who they are," coach Brett Brown said. Covington buried a 3 with 3:37 left that put the Sixers up 94-91 and Nik Stauskas (6'6''-SG-93, college: Michigan) hit his own with 38 seconds left for a 103-97 lead that sent fans inside a packed Wells Fargo Center into a frenzy. The Sixers thumped Dallas 116-74 on Friday night and improved to a respectable 17-19 at home. The Sixers won 10 games total last season. The Celtics, still with a nice lead in the Atlantic Division, won the first three games of the season against the Sixers. "Finally, we beat them," Saric said. Alfred Horford (6'10''-F/C-86, college: Florida) led the Celtics with a season-high 27 points in a game Boston could not afford to waste. Boston guard Isaiah Thomas sat out a second straight game with a bone bruise on his right knee and was questionable for Monday's game at Washington. The Celtics could surely use their leading scorer (29.2 points) against the Wizards. Boston and Washington are jostling for a top three seed headed into the Eastern Conference playoffs. Horford came up empty in the clutch with a scoreless fourth. "Guys are really looking for me. I'm just trying to make plays," he said. Just not enough of them. Saric waved his arms told the crowd of 19,446 and urged them to get louder down the stretch of Philadelphia's fantastic comeback. Jahlil Okafor (6'11''-C-95, college: Duke), the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 draft, sat out the second half for the Sixers because of right knee soreness. The Sixers were just fine without him. Jae Crowder, who scored 15 points, kept Boston in the game with a couple of late clutch 3s that never should have been necessary. Philadelphia's rebuilding continues to take small steps as it overcomes injuries to its core players. Brown admired the way the Celtics have used smart drafts, trades and free-agent deals to rise and become a force in the East. "I think there's a lot to be learned from them," he said. "I look at them as one of the teams in the Eastern Conference that is very, very dangerous." Covington scored 23 points. Saric made 10 of 20 baskets and added six rebounds and four assists.

Pelicans sweep Blazers 4-0 in 131-123 performance - 12 hours ago
Anthony Davis (6'10''-C-93, college: Kentucky) scored 33 of his franchise playoff-record 47 points in the second half, and the New Orleans Pelicans completed a first-round playoff sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers with a 131-123 victory on Saturday. Jrue Holiday capped his 41-point performance with an 18-foot pull-up jumper that gave the Pelicans a six-point lead with 40 seconds left.

Rubio's triple-double leads Jazz past Thunder 115-102 - 12 hours ago
Ricky Rubio (6'4''-G-90) waited seven years for a night like this. Rubio, who never reached the playoffs in his first six seasons with Minnesota, had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for Utah's first playoff triple-double in 17 years to help lead the Jazz to a 115-102 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night. 'We were down by 10 and I just changed my mentality, trying to be more aggressive and make some shots,' Rubio said. 'We made a run and it helps a lot when you're mak...   [read more]

Wolves Top Rockets 121-105 in Game 3, Cut Series Lead to 2-1 - 12 hours ago
Minnesota's slow-to-develop, up-and-down defense has finally started to shine, against this high-octane Houston team no less. There's been no wait quite like the one for a win by the Timberwolves in the playoffs, though. Jimmy Butler (6'7''-G/F-89, college: Marquette) hit four 3-pointers among his 28 points and Karl-Anthony Towns (7'0''-F/C-95, college: Kentucky) snapped back from a bad start to the series with 18 points and 16 rebounds, leading the Timberwolves past the Rockets 121-105 i...   [read more]
