Sixers force game 7 at Boston

Posted:

There's going to be a Game 7 in the Boston-Philadelphia Eastern Conference semifinal. The 76ers made sure of that with a 82-75 victory at home over the Celtics to knot the series at three games apiece.

Jrue Holiday led the Sixers with 20. Elton Brand added 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Paul Pierce led all scorers with 24 for Boston.

Game 7 is Saturday night in Boston. The Celtics are 17-4 all-time in Game 7's at home. But Celtics coach Doc Rivers says his team has to show more energy and not rely only on the home-court crowd.

He says, "Game 7s are what they are." Rivers says, "It's nice to have it at home.  At the end of the day, you've got to go play. You just can't rely on being at home."
