Perhaps proving that their First Round series win against the Chicago Bulls wasn't just a result of Derrick Rose's untimely season-ending injury, the Philadelphia 76ers are giving the Boston Celtics all they can handle on the Eastern Conference Semis. After erasing an 18-point deficit to win Game 4, Philly is even at 2-2 in their series with the Cs and are looking to steal an advantage-shifting game on the road tonight. Helping lead the way in the Sixers' unlikely playoff charge is starting point guard Jrue Holiday, who has increased his scoring and rebounding totals in the postseason. An adidas Basketball athlete, Holiday is one of the players lighting up the playoffs in the new adiZero Crazy Light 2, including this Player Exclusive colorway.
Jrue's Crazy Light 2s take on a fairly simple look, featuring a royal blue triple-layer SPRINTWEB upper, accented by white on the Three-Stripes and adiZero pinline. White also works the shoe's midsole, while a blue and white rubber outsole caps off the look below.
Look for another new colorway on the court tonight as Jrue and the 76ers take on the Celtics in Game 5. The adiZero Crazy Light 2 will officially launch this Thursday and can be pre-ordered in five colorways at Eastbay today.
