Heading into Game 4 of their Eastern Conference semifinals matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers up 3-0 Tyler Ennis Jersey , the Boston Celtics aren’t about to get caught looking past a team that entered the series winners in 20 of 21 games.

That much was made clear by Jaylen Brown after the Celtics’ 101-98 overtime win in Game 3 on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.

“We shouldn’t get caught up,” Brown told reporters after reporters told him that head coach Brad Stevens said the team shouldn’t get ‘caught up’ with a big series lead. “We gotta finish the drill. I’m not one that was ever taught to play with our food, so when it comes down to it, we gotta finish it. It’s first to four, so we gotta take care of business.”

The Celtics have already taken three big bites out of the 76ers.

Philadelphia, though, won’t go down easy.

It’s not as if Boston has dominated the series: the 76ers led by 22 points in a 108-103 loss in Game 2 and led Game 3 by six late in the second quarter.

But Ben Simmons needs to re-emerge as the triple-double force he was late in the regular season. After scoring just one point in Game 2, Simmons had 16, with eight rebounds and eight steals, but he also turned the ball over four times and had a plus/minus ratio of negative-11.

Worse, Simmons missed a critical shot at just the wrong time, which prompted him to say he has some “learning to do.” With less than 30 seconds left in overtime, Joel Embiid missed a jumper and Simmons rebounded the ball with 18 seconds left on the clock. Rather than milk the time, Simmons tried a putback Justin Williams Jersey , missed, and Boston’s Marcus Morris grabbed the rebound.

Al Horford scored with 5.5 seconds left to put the Celtics up.

“Young guys at time look young,” Brown said. “We’re going to have to find places in this experience, and learn from it, and that’s a great example of one of them.”

While Simmons is struggling his first second-round series, Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum continues to thrive. Tatum scored 24 points on 11 for 17 shooting in Game 3, after scoring 21 in Game 2 and 28 in Game 1. During the playoffs, he now has seven 20-point games, including five straight, with a 19-point game, as well.

“No moment is too big (for Tatum),” Stevens said after the game. “He’s got guts. He’s a competitive guy. Sometimes I think we misconstrue some of these slight guys when they come out of college for not being tough but he’s tough and very competitive.””

Forget the players, though.

Much of the talk after Game 3 was about Stevens, and his “genius” play call coming out of a time out toward the end of the overtime period Alex Tuch Jersey Kids , which resulted in Horford’s layup.

“Sometimes he draws stuff up, and I look at it, I’m like (confused),” Horford said after the game. “But Marcus delivered it, great pass. I missed some shots that I normally make there, but I made that one, so it was good.”
Doug Williams looked at Alex Smith and slightly exaggerated the commitment the Washington Redskins made to their new soon-to-be 34-year-old quarterback.

"He can play to 40," Williams said Thursday. "Can you, Alex? Look at him. I think he can."

Smith smiled back and has plenty to be happy about. The veteran is now the Redskins' franchise quarterback after being acquired from the Kansas City Chiefs and signing a $94 million, four-year extension with $71 million guaranteed that keeps him under contract through 2022.

He'd be 38 if he plays out that deal, one that shows the Redskins were willing to commit long term to Smith the way they never did with Kirk Cousins. As Williams implied Cousins didn't want to be in Washington for the long haul, Smith made it clear he did.

"This is where I wanted to be," Smith said. "It looked fun. I wanted to be a part of it."

Smith gives the Redskins the kind of continuity at the position they lacked with Cousins, who became the first QB in NFL history to play back-to-back seasons under the franchise tag before signing a fully guaranteed $84 million Jimmy Howard Jersey , three-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings.

"I do believe that Washington had a lot of great pieces," Cousins said at his introductory news conference. "They will have a lot of great pieces going forward and the margin of error is small. The difference between winning and losing is so small."

Cousins' year-to-year status and propensity for mistakes in big moments outweighed his three consecutive 4,000-yard seasons to Washington's front office, which decided to target Smith.

"That's somebody you can build your team around and know he's going to be here, year in and year out," coach Jay Gruden said. "You're not always looking down the road: 'Oh, who's going to be our quarterback next year?'"

Williams said three or four other teams were also attempting to get Smith, which the Redskins did by sending a 2018 third-round pick and promising young cornerback Kendall Fuller to Kansas City.

Smith had some say in his destination because he had to agree to the extension that Williams joked, "If we have to add a couple more years to it, we'll do that, too."

That was never going to happen with Cousins, a 2012 fourth-round pick taken the same draft as Robert Griffin III who thrived under the impression he was not wanted. From the Redskins' perspective, that went both ways.

"It wasn't a matter of wanting to commit to the other guy," Williams said of Cousins. "We had to look at it what we had to do that's going to be best for us Martin Jones Jersey , somebody who wanted to be here."

Smith's introduction six weeks after the trade and extension were agreed to came with a welcome gift as the Redskins signed former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Paul Richardson to a five-year deal that's reported to be worth $40 million.

Richardson saw what DeSean Jackson did as a fellow speed threat in this offense and talked to former Washington receiver Pierre Garcon about the situation and figured it would be a good fit to catch balls from Smith.

"I want him to know I'm always available," said Richardson, who has 95 catches for 1,302 yards and eight touchdowns in four seasons. "Just throw it. It don't matter where it is. I'm going to go get it. And I'm going to turn him into a believer."

Smith has already made the Redskins' brass into believers, and the entire organization from owner Dan Snyder and team president Bruce Allen down showed up for his much-hyped introductory news conference.

Standing in the same building that Cousins roamed the past three seasons as the starter, Smith looked comfortable being the guy and understanding the faith the franchise put in him.

"We've got to go win games," Smith said. "Excited about the opportunity because that's what it is at this point. It's an opportunity, and we've got to go make the most of it."

Gruden praised Smith for having "all the traits" to be successful, and Williams sees the same on-field characteristics.

But the Super Bowl MVP QB-turned-executive also sees another benefit in the locker room of Smith being under contract long term.

"I don't think the fans really understand when you talk about stability and when you know the guy that's going to be leading this team is going to be in your locker room for the next three to four to five years, that's a good feeling," Williams said.

"I think now they can relax and even during the season don't have to worry about whether our fearless leader's going to be here next year."

NOTES: The Redskins re-signed LB Zach Brown, whom they added in free agency a year ago. ... According to tweets from their agents, WR Brian Quick re-signed and former Cowboys P Sam Irwin-Hill signed with Washington.
