NBA Twitter reacts to Joel Embiid, Sixers defeating Celtics in Game 5

The Philadelphia 76ers earned one of the biggest wins in recent franchise history on Tuesday when they defeated the Boston Celtics 115-103 in Game 5 of this semifinal series. They now lead the Celtics 3-2 in the series and are one win away from advancing to the Eastern Conference finals.

The Sixers received big nights from up and down the roster. Joel Embiid delivered 33 points, Tyrese Maxey had 30, James Harden added 17, 10 assists, and eight rebounds, and Tobias Harris added 16 and 11 rebounds. Danuel House Jr. hopped off the bench and poured in 10 points while PJ Tucker did the little things in order to get it done.

The Sixers also bothered Jayson Tatum and held the Boston star to just 11-for-27 shooting from the floor and 3-for-11 from deep. Al Horford was 0-for-7 from deep and the Celtics shot just 39.8% from the floor.
