The Boston Celtics got 29 points from Terry Rozier and 28 points from Jayson Tatum en route to a  117-101 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in game one of their Eastern Conference semi-final on Monday night at TD Garden in Boston.

Rozier hit the 29 point mark for the second straight game while Tatum becomes the first Celtics rookie to score at least 28 points in a playoff game since Larry Bird did it in 1980.

Boston would take an 87-75 lead into the final quarter.

In the fourth quarter, the 76ers would get as close as nine, 97-88, with 5:57 left to play in the game before the Celtics would go on a 7-2 run to take a 104-90 lead with 4:21 left to play.
