Bass hasn't scored less than eight points in the series against the Sixers, and he exploded for 27 in game 5. The Boston Celtics have been looking for a big man to step up all year, and Bass has chosen the right time to have his breakthrough.
While Bass can knock down the open shot, he is mostly dependent on Rajon Rondo setting him up for easy points. When the Boston offense is clicking on all cylinders, Bass is getting easy looks at the basket.
If the Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers in game seven, Bass is going to need to step up in the next series. The Celtics have the best chance of anyone left to defeat the Miami Heat, but they will have to have the inside scoring that Bass provides to do that.
