"76ers Ramp Up for Must-Win Game 6 vs Celtics with Prospect of Duplicating Boston's Prior Postseason Road Success"

The Philadelphia 76ers' coach, Doc Rivers, has concocted an ingenious plan to give his team the edge in their crucial Game 6 series close-out opportunity against their rivals, the Boston Celtics. Rivers warned the team during Wednesday's meetings that the Celtics had a history of success in this situation, reminding them of the huge Game 6 road victory in Milwaukee last season and Game 7 win in Miami.

"We all look for stuff (for motivation)," said Rivers, "we talked openly about it as a group. Well, they've done this and so they're going to come in with confidence, and we got to be ready for that."

Rivers has also pinpointed the Celtics weak point - their 3-point shooting, which is a key metric for the Celtics in that they are 34-2 when they shoot 40% or higher, and 29-28 when they don't. "You can't get too comfortable," said Rivers. "In the playoffs, there's no such thing as comfort."

The Sixers have certainly been the more confident side, coming off the back of yesterday's blow-out 115-103 victory with 33 and 30 point performances respectively from reigning MVP, Joel Embiid, and guard Tyrese Maxey. Let's see if Rivers' strategy pays off and the Sixers can squeeze out a win, which would be a major upset for the Celtics.
