From WEEI: Celtics coach Doc Rivers announced at Friday morning's practice that Avery Bradley had surgery Friday on his ailing left shoulder and is out for the playoffs. Bradley was diagnosed with a sore rotator cuff during the first round series with the Hawks and attempted to play with pain. But early in the third quarter of Game 4 last Friday in Philadelphia, his shoulder popped out of place. He missed Games 5 and 6 before the decision was made to have surgery on Friday. If you'd like to wish Avery a speedy recovery, hit him up on Twitter.

Celtics Can’t Finish Off Philly, Play Game Seven on Saturday

In as frustrating and disappointing a performance as we’ve seen in some time, the Celtics just could not get things going last night in game six and lost to the 76ers 82-75. I can be reactionary at times, but I don’t think I’m doing that when I am concerned, not about the Eastern Conference Finals, but about game seven on Saturday night.
