Boston Celtics Sweep Philadelphia 76ers In First Round of the NBA Playoffs

The Boston Celtics have moved into the second round of the NBA playoffs after eliminating the Philadelphia 76ers in a 4-0 sweep on Sunday afternoon. Led by Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum, THE Celtics eliminated the Sixers 110-106.

The Celtics’ second-round opponent will most likely be the defending NBA champion Toronto Raptors, who took a 3-0 series lead over the Brooklyn Nets into Game 4 on Sunday night.

This is the first time there has been a sweep in a Celtics-76ers series. The Celtics, who ousted Philadelphia in five games two years ago, have seven sweeps in their history, including a first-round ouster of the Indiana Pacers last year.

Walker’s 32 lifts Celtics to 110-106 win, sweep of 76ers
