Jaylen Brown: Plans on playing in Game 2

Jaylen Brown: Plans on playing in Game 2

Jayson Tatum discussed playing against fellow rookie Ben Simmons in Monday night's Game 1 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Al Horford posted 26 points and seven rebounds, while rookie Jayson Tatum added 28 points for the Celtics.

The 76ers were led by Joel Embiid with 31 points and 13 rebounds.

Horford finished with 26 points on 10-of-12 shooting from the floor, seven rebounds, four assists, and just two turnovers, despite touching the ball on pretty much every Celtics possession.

The Boston Celtics somehow continue to win games despite dealing with numerous key injuries, and they should have a chance to field an even better lineup against the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 2.

The Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers collide in a crucial Game 2 at the TD Garden on Thursday night. There were points in the game where their 3-point shooting seemed like something out of a video game. The Celtics have a lot of young players that want to prove they are making the leap as a high quality National Basketball Association starter, and they become incredibly unsafe when multiple options come together like they did in game one.

Rookie Ben Simmons filled the stat sheet for the Sixers with 18 points, seven boards and six assists. I think when everybody's on, we're the best defensive team in the game.

Tatum was Boston's first pick a year ago - third over all - after the team swapped the No. 1 pick to the Sixers and grabbed a 2018 first-rounder as well. But Horford hit five of his six shots outside the paint, finding seams in the mid-range and completely clean looks behind the arc. He had 10 points and six assists in the first quarter and was 7 for 9 from 3-point range overall, overshadowing the lottery picks accumulated by Philadelphia during The Process. "It didn't bother me, you know". Embiid wants the Boston faithful to bring more venom in that game. When they do, the team's role players will once again be tested.

Guys like Dario Saric, Robert Covington and Markelle Fultz (who did not play because of coach's decision) will ultimately need to become more consistent for this team to reach their full potential.

"I don't care", Simmons said. In the previous series against Miami, plays like this often led to positive early offence for the Sixers.

The task will get a lot more hard for Rozier and Co. against the defense-savvy Sixers, who can also space the floor with a lineup of matchup nightmares at any time.
