The Boston Celtics completed a sweep of the Philadelphia 76ers with a 110-106 victory.

Kemba Walker led the way with 32 points for Boston. Jayson Tatum also played well, finishing with 28 points and 15 rebounds.

Joel Embiid finished with 30 points and 10 rebounds for Philadelphia in the loss. Despite playing well, it was another postseason that ended in disappointment for the big man.

The Celtics beat the 76ers in five games in the second round of the postseason in 2018. The Sixers also lost in heartbreaking fashion last season, after Kawhi Leonard’s buzzer beater in Game 7 eliminated them in the second round.

The Celtics will take on the winner of the series between the Nets and the Raptors. The Raptors currently are up 3-0 in the series and will go for the sweep tonight.
