here comes the tying run.
according to the Baseball-Reference data, B.J. Rosenberg is the first pitcher in MLB history to face 3 hitters & allow 3 HRs.
don't see that often
Sandberg said he wanted to stay away from Rosenberg tonight …
Gattis picking up where McCann left off vs. Phillies …
Sixers clinch 29th place tonight.
Roberto Hernandez gave up four hits -- single, double, triple, homer. And then here were those 6 walks.
Final: Sixers beat Boston, 113-108. It's their third win in their last 35 games.
Figures the longest game of the season is the home finale
Chris Johnson hits a potential game-tying 3...but stepped out of bounds in the process. Sixers ball with 0.9 to go.
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.
Sixers gonna pull this one out.
Henry Sims. That's right. That's who you look to when you need a big basket. Sixers 2013-14
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.
Not a good turnover there for Rondo.
Call stands: Blocking foul on Kelly Olynyk. So Tony Wroten to the line for two shots.
Foul on Olynyk. I was wrong
Play is being reviewed. Initial call is Kelly Olynyk getting whistled for the block on Tony Wroten, but Olynyk wasnt in the restricted area
That looked like an offensive foul to me, but we'll see.
MCW hits one of two free throws (Sixers are 59.2 percent from the line tonight), and they lead Boston, 106-103.
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.
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.)
Kudos to Sixers fans for being so into this game. Pretty fun atmosphere here. Kind of like the last day of school.
Thaddeus Young's 3 from the top of the arc gives the Sixers a 102-96 lead...and gives fans free Big Macs.
Jarvis Varnado misses a pair of FTs, Jeff Green completes a 3-point play ... and the Celtics have made it a three-point game.
Green with layup and foul shot to make it a three point game. He now leads Boston with 24.
Varnado can't supply the one point needed for Big Macs on his two foul shots. Uh oh
The biggest Sixers fan of them all just lifted his shirt for the last time this season.
Wroten now with 17 to lead Sixers. He is playing a really good game.
Tony Wroten is chatting Rajon Rondo's ear off. And Rondo is just standing there, smiling.
Rondo back in for Celts
several uniforms could use a little more dirt tonight ...
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
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.
Anderson struggling with 0-5 from the floor, including last three which was an airball.
Brandon Bass' jumpshot, which somehow went in, has as much rotation on it as a knuckleball.
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.
The Sixers have trailed by 10+ points in 65 games this season. In their last 54 of those, they're 1-53.
Sixers halftime act is a youth drumline. They're killing it.
Jimmy probably forgot how many outs there were.
Sixers with 67 points in first half. Their high for the season is 70, which they got when they snapped 26-game losing streak.
Sixers lead 67-50 at the half
Henry Sims is what Doug Collins would call "all lathered up." Needless to say, the big man could use a towel to dry off.
Celtics not offering much resistance on defense tonight. Sixers have shot 27-for-44 (61 percent)
the ol' 1-5-24.
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.
Sixers have 53 points with 5:50 to go in first half.
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.
Brandon Davies with three fouls in six minutes. He's out
Sixers 6-for-8 this quarter, up by nine
Who will win the last Colonial Classic Race of the season?!? If your answer was, 'Who cares?' you win.
Tony Wroten has three assists and they've been the kind he likes - no look bullet passes in the lane.
Score knotted a 33 after one quarter. Green has 12 points on 5-7 shooting. MCW leads Sixers with 8 pts.
Check that, teams were 27-for-45. That's 60 percent.
Teams combined to shoot 26-for-45 (58 percent) in the first quarter that ended tied at 33.
Sixers have a 22-8 advantage in points in the paint
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.
MCW has 6 rebounds in first 8 minutes
Defensively speaking, the last four possessions in this Sixers/Celtics game were reminiscient of what you'd see in an AAU game.
You get the feeling these two teams, going absolutely nowhere any time soon, are going to have some real fun on the court tonight.
That continuation call on Wroten basket was beyond continuaton
Kelly Olynyk seems to get bigger every time I see him. That was a good pick for the Celtics, IMO
Rondo was popped in the nose by Young. He will try to stick it out.
Elbow from Young put Rondo down. He looked a little groggy coming off the court. He's on the bench now.
Replay shows Rajon Rondo jumped into Thaddeus Young on the play. Rondo might've hit his nose. He walked off to cheers.;
It appears that he caught an elbow from Young. He walked off the court.
Rondo is down, but not sure why
Rondo down for a 10 count.
