Back to their losing ways: Celtics fall to 76ers
Posted By WEEI On April 14, 2014 @ 10:28 pm In General | No Comments
The Celtics  dropped their second-to-last game of the 2013-14 season, falling to the lowly 76ers in Philadelphia by a 113-108 count. Though Chris Johnson  appeared to hit a game-tying 3-pointer near the end of regulation, the forward was ruled to have stepped out of bounds for a turnover. The 76ers added a pair of free throws to create the game’s final margin.
Kelly Olynyk continued his scoring surge in defeat, with the center dropping in a career-high 28 points on 10-of-19 shooting. Jeff Green  added 27, Avery Bradley  scored 23 (though he shot just 9-of-22) and Rajon Rondo  fell a bucket shy of a triple-double, scoring eight points, claiming 11 boards and distributing 14 assists.
The Celtics  wrapped up the year with a 9-32 road record. All that remains between the Celtics  and the end of the season is a home contest against Washington on Wednesday. The Celtics currently possess the fifth-worst record in the NBA; with one game remaining, they could finish with as “low” as the fourth-worst record and as “high” as the sixth-worst record.
