Sixers wanted no part of C’s

Here’s the quote from Miller:
“Boston is a team that people have in the conference finals. It’s probably easier to go through Orlando than to try and match up with Boston, with Boston coming in with a lot of energy and trying to get through the first round as fast as they can.”
“I agree with ‘Dre. Orlando’s a great team, but we definitely want to play them. Boston is fresh off a championship. That’s the worst thing you can do is go play a team that just won a championship. They’re going to want to get back and be hungry.”
It’s surprising to see such candor, especially from a team that will be a decided underdog against the Magic, but if there’s a lesson to be had there it’s that the rest of the NBA still has great respect for the Celtics.
