Pantherbook Staff

The Boston Celtics will try to punch their ticket to the East Division Finals tonight in Philadelphia at the Wells Fargo Center (8pm ESPN). The Celtics lead the best of seven series 3 -2.

Celtics star, Kevin Garnett will likely drew some special attention from the Philadelphia fans after he described them as “Fair Weather.”

“We’ll see the fans tomorrow,’ Elton Brand said after Tuesday’s light practice to Philly.com. ‘We appreciate our fans. We know we have their support and they’ve got our backs. I’m sure they’re going to show him how fair-weather they are tomorrow.”

The Celtics will likely be without rising star Avery Bradley who sat out game 5 with a separated shoulder.

“I don’t think I’ll be able to play tonight,” Bradley said to Boston.com after this morning’s shoot around.

If the Sixers pull off the upset, Game 7 will be on Saturday in Boston.

If the Celtics win, they will get several much needed days off an wait to play the winner of the IndianaMiami series which Miami leads 3-2.
