BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Celtics dropped Game 4 to the Sixers by 11 last night, so Boston can finish the series with Game 5 tomorrow at the Garden.
One thing to keep an eye on--how Terry Rozier and Joel Embiid get along after both received technical fouls and had to be separated during the second quarter.
Rozier was called for an offensive foul, then took exception to the much larger Embiid trying to grab the ball from him.
"I wake up every morning not worried about nobody, no man on this earth," Rozier said. "We out there having fun, it's just part of the basketball game, that's all it is."
"We were on a run, so I just wanted to keep it going and I was trying to get the ball, and he kind of kept the ball away from me and tried to punch me twice," Embiid said. "But too bad he's so short that he couldn't get to my face. I didn't understand why it was a double technical, because I was just trying to get the ball and he was the one trying to swing."
Like Rozier said, no fear. Embiid's 10 inches taller and has him beat by 60 pounds!
We already observed Rozier and all the Eric Bledsoe drama in Round 1. The guard admitted things get a little more chippy as the playoffs move along.
"I mean, it's what it is," Rozier said. "Two teams, two guys, that's what it's about, man, both fighting for their team."
Tip tomorrow at 8 p.m.
