The second round schedule has been announced and it will be a tighter one than the first. The Sixers and Bulls had 13 days to play 6 games. Against the Boston Celtics, there'll have 12. Not a major difference, sure, but with a tired, OLD Boston team, that may be something to watch later in the series. Here's the schedule:
Game One @ Boston: Saturday 5/12, 8:00 on TNT.
Game Two @ Boston: Monday 5/14, 7:00 on TNT.
Game Three @ Philly: Wednesday 5/16, 7:00 on TNT.
Game Four @ Philly: Friday 5/18, ????? on ESPN.
Game Five @ Boston: Monday 5/21, ????? on ?????? <----- tune in!
Game Six @ Philly: Wednesday 5/23, ????? on ?????? <-----seriously, watch!
Game Seven @ Boston: Saturday, 5/26, ????? on ????? <-----uh.
And here's a little something something extra from Celtics Blog.
"It's a challenge because of bodies," Rivers said before Saturday's film session and light shootaround. "The Sixers are pretty healthy, we're not so that's the challenge. Ray is struggling today, Paul is struggling today. That's a challenge. The only advantage we have is we don't have to get on a plane. Our guy can sleep in their beds tonight and tomorrow night and get some rest."
So, while Pierce was tweeting about getting a good night's sleep, some of the Sixers celebrated their upset over the Bulls by going to a strip club. Like George Bernard Shaw said, "youth is wasted on the young."
