Leftover Sixers Tidbits

Some leftover Sixers tidbits from Monday's victory:

♦ This Sixers-Celtics series is first NBA postseason series ever to start with one-point decisions in both Games 1 and 2.

♦ Before 2012, the Sixers and Celtics had played just three one-point playoff games in their history.

♦ The Sixers had only two one-point games (both losses) in the 66-game regular season. They have played three (consecutively, by the way) so far in the postseason (2-1).

♦ Philly was 1-10 in game decided by five points or fewer during the season. They are 3-1 in such postseason contests.

♦ The Sixers outscored the Celtics by 58-37 in the 30:21 that Lavoy Allen was on the court.

♦ The Sixers have forced 30 more turnovers (118) than they committed (88) in the postseason.

♦ The Celtics shot 65 percent in the fourth quarter and lost.
