After defeating the Atlanta Hawks in the first round, the Boston Celtics are up 2-1 against the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the NBA playoffs. They won Game 1 by one point, but lost Game 2 in a tough one point game. Then they went to Philadelphia and blew out the 76ers 107-91. Game 4 is tomorrow night in Philadelphia.

How many will they get before they finish their season?
