1st Round - Celtics/76ers - Game 2

Evan Turner came alive for the 76ers, scoring 20+ points, as Philadelphia got a much needed split, 123-115.

Boston had no answer for Turner, because they were busy containing Jrue Holiday, Thaddeus Young and Andrew Bynum, all of which played extremely well, stretching the floor.

Philadelphia shot 60% in the second half, and Boston simply couldn't match such efficiency, missing shots down the stretch that would've kept the difference within reach.

Richard Jefferson and Michael Beasley scored well, but Rajon Rondo's stellar impact from Game 1 was absent, along with any coherent play by Boston. The defending champions must've still been basking in the satisfaction of crushing the underdogs in Game 1, but tonight Philadelphia made them pay for it, proving they won't just lay down for the champs.
