NBA Playoffs Conference Semifinals Schedule

Hard to believe it, the 2nd round of the playoffs are here and the Philadelphia 76ers are still playing.  They are playing a team they beat twice out of three times this season, but that was before the Celtics really turned it on and improved their play toward the end of the season.  The Sixers would have been much better off playing the Hawks, not to mention that the Hawks simply forcing a Game 7 would have bought the 76ers a few days of needed rest.  As it is, the series starts Saturday night, and the opponent is Boston.  There is a good chance the first team to 75 will win each of these 76ers-Celtics games.
