“It’s Game 7. There’s no tomorrow,” Boston Celtics captain Paul Pierce said before practice on Friday. “If this is not the most important thing to you right now, there is no way to motivate you as a basketball player.” The Celtics and Philadelphia Sixers will play today ( 5 p.m. on ABC) for a spot in the Eastern Conference finals, where one of them will face the Miami Heat for the right to play for the NBA title. The 76ers forced the series to a decisive game by beating Boston 82-75 on Wednesday night, keeping alive a surprising run that started when they knocked out the top-seeded Chicago Bulls in the first round. – Associated Press
