Game 4 of 76ers vs Celtics starts in minutes, at 1 p.m. ET today (Aug. 23) on ABC. See below for complete series details, including start times and channels (though that won't matter if Boston wins again).

The 76ers vs Celtics live stream is asking one simple question. Is The Process over? Today will help is figure out if Philly can un-break itself, or if it's doomed without Ben Simmons. Yes, Philadelphia's down in the hole, as Boston has a 3-0 lead going into the early afternoon game and a win today brings them ti the semi-finals. 

The Celtics have been cruising in this Round 1 series thanks to their star trio of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Kemba Walker. The 76ers are still greatly missing the injured Ben Simmons, but Joel Embiid and Al Horford have been doing their best to make up for his presence.

Boston's hopes don't stop with the next round. The team used to make the Eastern Conference finals regularly, and they're upset after after missing them last year.

Philly's gonna need a strong supporting cast — with memorable performances and lines from Alec Burks, Al Horford, Furkan Korkmaz, Mike Scott and Matisse Thybulle, to force a game 5. 

So, here is everything you need to watch the 76ers vs Celtics live stream today — and for the rest of this Round 1 series as well.
