Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics Prediction and Odds: Preview
Seth Curry finished with 24 points as the 76ers defeated Magic pretty convincingly. Tobias Harris put up another 17 points but Magic had some other plans as they almost pulled off a brilliant victory as they levelled the score at 93-93.
But they had the luxury of free throws in the dying minute which gave them the much needed edge as they subdued the Magic.
Joel Embiid couldn’t be involved in 9 games as he was isolated having contracted the Covid-19 virus. But he returned with a bang against Minnesota Timberwolves as he netted 42 points alongside 14 rebounds and three assists. The player is healthy and strong and will be available for the Boston match.
The 76ers are yet to win a match against any team in the Atlantic division and have lost all the matches they have played so far. They will be needed their best game to keep Boston Celtics away in the next game.
They have lost seven of their last 10 matches and have averaged 104.9 points with 43.5 rebounds. They have also recorded 21.8 assists and 5.7 blocks. They have given up 110.5 points so far.

Josh Richardson had a wonderful game against the Raptors as he netted 18 points and contributed to the cause heavily as Jayson Tatum had a rare off day.
It has been the reason behind their success. Whenever a player is down with off form other players have stepped up in especially away games.
Grant Williams too has proved his worth with his consistent deliverance. The player came up with 15 points and 5 rebounds and has been a solid defender. He is also a good shooter and is very mobile on the court.
Celtics’s rebounding also earned plaudits and they are ranked third in rebounding. They have dominated possessions and their defensive solidity will be once again put to test against Philadelphia.
For the 76ers Tobias Harris had 17 points against Magic. His most of the points came in the first half as he struggled to get it going in the second half.
Embiid might have felt a bit tired for his struggle with Covid-19 and the player ended the evening with 16 points. Curry’s shooting has been tremendous for the last few matches. He put up a massive 24 points which proved vital for Philadelphia.
