Philadelphia was far more assertive offensively in the first half of Game 2 than they were in Game 1. I would have had the same people in the game.

Philadelphia's Game 1 loss could have been partially attributed to rust as they had been off for almost a week after dispatching the Heat in five games while Boston went right to the wire to knock out the Bucks.

"I'm going to give it some time, walk away, let everybody breathe for a second", he said. They just looked me in the eye and they were back and forth and unsure, and I was like hey, I'm playing, that's it. I got to play my game.

Despite giving up such a huge advantage, the 76ers still had chances to win down the stretch but failed to get crucial buckets in the clutch moments and succumbed to a 108-103 loss.

Tatum was humbled by the Sixers legend's praise.

During Monday's edition of "First Things First" on Fox Sports 1, Wright explained why he only can think of one scenario in which the Celtics take down the 76ers in the best-of-seven series. And the needle on Philly's who-cares meter didn't twitch when Greg Monroe of the Celtics scored inside to make it 53-35 with 3:24 left in the half.
