Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Four
MIAMI, FL - APRIL 21: JJ Redick #17 of the Philadelphia 76ers looks to score in the first quarter against the Miami Heat during Game Four of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at American Airlines Arena on April 21, 2018 in Miami, Florida.

In case you missed it Saturday, former Duke star JJ Redick hit 24 points to help lead Philly past Miami, including the last four points with a clutch jumper and two free throws.

Redick, who signed with Philly after last season when it seemed like he might be a veteran helping to provide steadiness to a young but promising team, is now on a team that is suddenly looking like it could be headed for greatness, and possibly sooner than anyone imagined.

If Philly wins and the Celtics survive Milwaukee (currently it’s 2-2), the NBA could see a hot and possibly long-lasting revival of one of the great league rivalries of all time.

By the way, fellow former Blue Devil Justise Winslow has a bloody cameo in the video included in the link above.
