here comes the tying run.

John R. Finger

according to the Baseball-Reference data, B.J. Rosenberg is the first pitcher in MLB history to face 3 hitters & allow 3 HRs.

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown on MCW: 'I thought he had a hell of a game. He's arguably the best rebounding rookie guard in the history of the game.'

John R. Finger

don't see that often

Christopher A. Vito

#Sixers coach Brett Brown said he saw Johnson step out of bounds. "Yes," he said. "I was so pleased."

Christopher A. Vito

#Sixers coach Brett Brown: "A high number" of Tony Wroten's turnovers happen because of his pace

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown: 'You want to be perfect in situational basketball. We haven't had many of those this year.'

Christopher A. Vito

#Sixers coach Brett Brown on Chris Johnson's 3-pointer that didn't count: "that's that. His foot was out of bounds."

John R. Finger

Sandberg said he wanted to stay away from Rosenberg tonight …

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown: '(To win is a) good tribute to reward guys that took a lot of hits this year.'

Christopher A. Vito

#Sixers coach Brett Brown: "We found ways to stay together. To win at home and beat Boston is a good thing."

John R. Finger

Gattis picking up where McCann left off vs. Phillies …

Christopher A. Vito

#Sixers' Michael Carter-Williams had 21 points, career-high 14 rebounds, six assists and four steals in the win over Boston.

Christopher A. Vito

#Sixers' Tony Wroten checked in with 20 points, four assists...and seven turnovers.

Tom Moore

#Sixers improve to 3-32 in last 35 games.

John R. Finger

Sixers clinch 29th place tonight.

John R. Finger

Roberto Hernandez gave up four hits -- single, double, triple, homer. And then here were those 6 walks.

Christopher A. Vito

Final: Sixers beat Boston, 113-108. It's their third win in their last 35 games.

Bob Cooney

Figures the longest game of the season is the home finale

Christopher A. Vito

Chris Johnson hits a potential game-tying 3...but stepped out of bounds in the process. Sixers ball with 0.9 to go.

Christopher A. Vito

And now the ball goes out of bounds against #Sixers . Boston ball in a 3-point game, with 15.3 to go.

Christopher A. Vito

#Sixers ball with 15.3 to go, leading Boston, 111-108

Christopher A. Vito

And Tony Wroten just committed the biggest no-no: a foul of Jeff Green from beyond the 3-point line in the final minute of a tight game.

Bob Cooney

Sixers gonna pull this one out.

Christopher A. Vito

Henry Sims might have just clinched this one. His 16-footer on the baseline gave the #Sixers a 110-105 lead with 25.1 seconds to go.

Bob Cooney

Henry Sims. That's right. That's who you look to when you need a big basket. Sixers 2013-14

Christopher A. Vito

Sixers did decent job killing clock, but then give it to James Anderson (1-for-8) for a corner 3. Didn't exactly work in their favor.

Bob Cooney

Not a good turnover there for Rondo.

Christopher A. Vito

Call stands: Blocking foul on Kelly Olynyk. So Tony Wroten to the line for two shots.

Bob Cooney

Foul on Olynyk. I was wrong

Christopher A. Vito

Play is being reviewed. Initial call is Kelly Olynyk getting whistled for the block on Tony Wroten, but Olynyk wasnt in the restricted area

Bob Cooney

That looked like an offensive foul to me, but we'll see.

Christopher A. Vito

MCW hits one of two free throws (Sixers are 59.2 percent from the line tonight), and they lead Boston, 106-103.

John R. Finger

Roberto Hernandez has thrown 117 pitches or more just four times. However, he was Fausto Carmona for 2 of them, so he should be good to go.

Christopher A. Vito

Michael Carter-Williams with a driving layup. It's 104-98 Sixers. (Lost in the sauce this quarter was MCW's 14th rebound, a career high.)

Bob Cooney

Kudos to Sixers fans for being so into this game. Pretty fun atmosphere here. Kind of like the last day of school.

Christopher A. Vito

Thaddeus Young's 3 from the top of the arc gives the Sixers a 102-96 lead...and gives fans free Big Macs.

Christopher A. Vito

Jarvis Varnado misses a pair of FTs, Jeff Green completes a 3-point play ... and the Celtics have made it a three-point game.

Bob Cooney

Green with layup and foul shot to make it a three point game. He now leads Boston with 24.

Bob Cooney

Varnado can't supply the one point needed for Big Macs on his two foul shots. Uh oh

Christopher A. Vito

The biggest Sixers fan of them all just lifted his shirt for the last time this season.

Bob Cooney

Wroten now with 17 to lead Sixers. He is playing a really good game.

Tom Moore

#Sixers Wroten with 4 assists and 6 turnovers. Lead #Celtics by 9 with 7:15 left.

Christopher A. Vito

Tony Wroten is chatting Rajon Rondo's ear off. And Rondo is just standing there, smiling.

Bob Cooney

Rondo back in for Celts

Keith Pompey

How are you going to give an autographed #Sixers ball to a Boston Celtics fan? SMH

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead 86-84 after three quarters. Celtics outscored them 34-19 in the third quarter

Tom Moore

#Sixers notes (with Brown vid on Moultrie): #76ers getting closer to building new practice facility: bit.ly/1kZH7WQ #NBA

John R. Finger

several uniforms could use a little more dirt tonight ...

Bob Cooney

No lead is safe with Rondo on the court. He has 8 points, 10 assists and 7 boards. Sixers lead at 9 after nifty MCW layup

Christopher A. Vito

The Sixers' 19-point lead is down to 9. Celtics have made it an 83-74 game with 2:48 to go in the third.

Tom Moore

#Sixers MCW has attempted 0 3-pointers in last 6 games. Took 52 in 16 March games (making 11).

Bob Cooney

Anderson struggling with 0-5 from the floor, including last three which was an airball.

Tom Moore

#Celtics Rondo (8 points, 8 assists, 7 rebs in 19 minutes) closing in on triple-double. MCW has 14 pts, 11 rebs, 3 assists. #Sixers up 15.

Christopher A. Vito

Brandon Bass' jumpshot, which somehow went in, has as much rotation on it as a knuckleball.

Christopher A. Vito

The Sixers haven't won a game in which they've trailed by 10+ points since Dec. 29, when they beat the Los Angeles Lakers.

Tom Moore

#Sixers have trailed by 10-plus points 65 times in 80 games this season. They were 5-6 to start season in that situation.

Christopher A. Vito

The Sixers have trailed by 10+ points in 65 games this season. In their last 54 of those, they're 1-53.

Tom Moore

#Sixers, who trailed by 10 in 1st quarter, are 1-53 the last 54 times they trailed by 10 or more this season. #76ers

Christopher A. Vito

Sixers halftime act is a youth drumline. They're killing it.

John R. Finger

Jimmy probably forgot how many outs there were.

Bob Cooney

Sixers with 67 points in first half. Their high for the season is 70, which they got when they snapped 26-game losing streak.

Keith Pompey

Sixers lead 67-50 at the half

Tom Moore

#Sixers shooting 59.6 percent (28-for-47) from field against #Celtics. Lead 67-50 at halftime.

Christopher A. Vito

Halftime: #Sixers lead Celtics, 67-50.

Christopher A. Vito

Henry Sims is what Doug Collins would call "all lathered up." Needless to say, the big man could use a towel to dry off.

Keith Pompey

Dang, this is crazy. The #Sixers are crushing #Boston, 65-56 with 1:58 left in half

Bob Cooney

Celtics not offering much resistance on defense tonight. Sixers have shot 27-for-44 (61 percent)

Christopher A. Vito

Either a Sixers win (they're up, 61-46) or a Milwaukee loss (they're down, 57-37) assures the Sixers of the No. 2 slot in the draft lottery.

Tom Moore

If #Sixers, who lead #Celtics by 10 mid-2nd period, win tonight, they'll be 3-1 in 2014 vs. Bos and 6-42 vs. everybody else. #76ers

Bob Cooney

Sixers have 53 points with 5:50 to go in first half.

Bob Cooney

That's what you have to like about Thaddeus Young. Diving on the floor for a ball in the next to last game of a meaningless season.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers up 51-40 with 7:22 left in half.

Bob Cooney

Brandon Davies with three fouls in six minutes. He's out

Bob Cooney

Sixers 6-for-8 this quarter, up by nine

Christopher A. Vito

Who will win the last Colonial Classic Race of the season?!? If your answer was, 'Who cares?' you win.

Bob Cooney

Tony Wroten has three assists and they've been the kind he likes - no look bullet passes in the lane.

Tom Moore

#Sixers are 6-19 in 2014 calendar year on the road and 2-23 at home. H/T @Keith Pompey. #76ers

Christopher A. Vito

A #Sixers fan just shouted at Kelly Olynyk, "Go back to the Mystery Bus." Clearly, she didn't watch Scooby Doo as a child.

Keith Pompey

Score knotted a 33 after one quarter. Green has 12 points on 5-7 shooting. MCW leads Sixers with 8 pts.

Bob Cooney

Check that, teams were 27-for-45. That's 60 percent.

Bob Cooney

Teams combined to shoot 26-for-45 (58 percent) in the first quarter that ended tied at 33.

Christopher A. Vito

After one quarter: #Sixers and Celtics even at 33-all.

Bob Cooney

Sixers have a 22-8 advantage in points in the paint

John R. Finger

A.J. Burnett won't let hernia keep him down csnphilly.com/baseball-phila…

Keith Pompey

I have the utmost respect for Jeff Green. I really do. But he looks like the second-coming of Jordan tonight. 5-6 shooting for 12 pts.

Bob Cooney

MCW has 6 rebounds in first 8 minutes

Christopher A. Vito

Defensively speaking, the last four possessions in this Sixers/Celtics game were reminiscient of what you'd see in an AAU game.

Bob Cooney

You get the feeling these two teams, going absolutely nowhere any time soon, are going to have some real fun on the court tonight.

Bob Cooney

That continuation call on Wroten basket was beyond continuaton

Bob Cooney

Kelly Olynyk seems to get bigger every time I see him. That was a good pick for the Celtics, IMO

Keith Pompey

Rondo was popped in the nose by Young. He will try to stick it out.

Bob Cooney

Elbow from Young put Rondo down. He looked a little groggy coming off the court. He's on the bench now.

Christopher A. Vito

Replay shows Rajon Rondo jumped into Thaddeus Young on the play. Rondo might've hit his nose. He walked off to cheers.;

Keith Pompey

It appears that he caught an elbow from Young. He walked off the court.

Bob Cooney

Rondo is down, but not sure why

Keith Pompey

Rondo down for a 10 count.
