Ben Simmons, Kevin Hart, And Jayson Tatum React To Celtics Beating Sixers In Game 7 [Watch]

As Simmons lounged on his couch, sipping his wine and watching his former team crumble before his eyes, he couldn’t help but relish in their defeat. He had endured so much criticism and scrutiny during his time with the 76ers, with fans and analysts alike questioning his abilities and his commitment to the team. But now, as he watched them falter yet again, he felt a sense of vindication.

He had always known that he was a talented player, but the pressure and expectations of playing in Philadelphia had taken a toll on him. He had struggled to find his place on the team, with his defensive prowess overshadowed by his lack of offensive production. And when the team’s playoff hopes were dashed yet again, he became the scapegoat for their failure.

But now, as he watched from afar, he could see that the 76ers’ problems ran deeper than just one player. Their lack of cohesion and leadership had cost them yet another season, while Simmons had moved on to a new team and a new opportunity to prove himself.

As the final buzzer sounded and the 76ers were officially eliminated, Simmons couldn’t help but smirk. He knew that he would always be tied to the team that drafted him, but in that moment, he was just glad to be watching from the sidelines. He had a long road ahead of him to regain his confidence and rediscover his game, but for now, he was content to bask in the glory of the 76ers’ defeat.

The Boston Celtics’ victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 7 was a defining moment for Jayson Tatum. His historic performance led the Celtics to their fourth Eastern Conference finals in five years. Tatum’s 51-point game set a new record for the most points ever scored in a Game 7. He also became the first player in history to record a 50-point game in the regular season, playoffs, and All-Star Game, all in the same campaign.

Tatum’s performance was particularly impressive given the context of the series. The Celtics had been down 3-2 in the series, and their backs were against the wall. Tatum had struggled in Game 6, but he bounced back in a big way in Game 7, leading the Celtics to a dominant victory. Tatum’s clutch performance was a reminder of his talent and his potential to be a superstar in the league.

“We beat the Sixers today, I got a special shoutout to Kevin Hart,” Tatum said, as seen on ESPN’s walk-off interview. “I want him to answer my phone call after today. No hard feelings.”

“It felt great,” Tatum explained. “This is a back-and-forth series. Obviously, I didn’t play well in the first half last game. And I was just happy to get another opportunity to bounce back, and come back home.”

Hart responded, “I hope you’re proud of yourself, you f**king a**hole,” Hart said about Tatum in an Instagram post.

With the win over the 76ers, the Celtics continued their dominance over their longtime rivals. Boston has not lost a playoff series to the 76ers since 1982, and they can thank Tatum for keeping that streak alive. The Celtics will now face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals as they look to make another run at Banner 18. Tatum’s performance in Game 7 has given the Celtics hope that they can return to the NBA Finals and bring another championship to Boston.
