Sixers vs. Celtics Final Score: Philly Tops Boston, 111-102

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

SIX GAMES LEFT.

For the second time in a week, the Philadelphia 76ers have won a basketball game. Sounds weird, huh? The good news is that it's nice to see the players rewarded for their efforts. Especially in the case of Michael Carter-Williams, who was playing in front of his Boston-rooted family and friends.

The bad news is that this virtually locks the Sixers in as the second overall team in the 2014 NBA lottery. The Sixers had a slight chance of catching the Bucks having been only two games behind in the tankathon. But now the Sixers are three games behind and there are only six games left. Welpadelphia.

The Sixers were led by an efficient MCW performance: 9-14, 24 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists. It was an all around good performance for the rookie point guard. Henry Sims, who I think is just dandy, was even more efficient: 5-10, 24 points, and 9 rebounds. Sims got to the free throw line a whopping 18 (!) times and made 14 of those attempts. It was a career game for Sims City.

Boston was led by the triple-double hoarding Rajon Rondon: 11 points ,15 assists, and 11 rebounds.

Jake Fischer, who attended tonight's game in person, will have your full game recap later if you're into that kind of thing.

SIX GAMES LEFT. The next time you'll see me handling LB game coverage is the final game of the year. I'm sure you can't wait. Me neither.
