EASTERN CONFERENCE

Boston Celtics (2) vs.

Milwaukee Bucks (3)

Joel Embiid and James Harden's Sixers beat the Toronto Raptors with a convincing 97-132 in the sixth game to seal the 4-2 with which they went to the second round of the

playoffs

in which they will face the Miami Heat , who in turn won their tie against the Atlanta Hawks 4-1.

One of the keys to the semi-final could be the last-minute loss of Joel Embiid, who suffers an orbital fracture that will keep him out indefinitely.

Embiid had a similar mishap in 2018 that took him out of play for three weeks, so if it happened again he would miss the entire series against the Heat.
