The Boston Celtics finished the first round of the series over the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday afternoon, and in turn, Philadelphia’s stint in the NBA bubble in Orlando came to an end. The Sixers kept him close to three quarters, but forward Tobias Harris left the game late in the third quarter after hitting his head on the field, and Philly – already absent from All-Star forward Ben Simmons – was simply unable to keep up after this. Although Harris eventually returned to the game, it turned out too little too late. In the end, the Celtics came away with a 110-106 victory, and they will now advance to the second round, where they will likely face the Toronto Raptors, as Toronto leads their streak with Brooklyn 3-0.Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum led the way for the Celtics in Game 4. Walker finished with 30 points, four rebounds and four assists, while Tatum had 28 points and 15 rebounds, a career-high. Like he’s done every series, Joel Embiid led the way in Philadelphia. The big man had 30 points and 10 rebounds, and he got help from Harris, who finished with 20 points and five rebounds. In the end, however, it was not enough.

While the Celtics will now prepare for their next opponent, the Sixers will enter an offseason full of uncertainties. It has been a disappointing season for Philadelphia, marked by injury issues and disappointing performances. The team has underperformed in every way, and as a result, major questions arise regarding the future of many roster players, coaching staff and even the front office.
