The Boston Celtics visit the young upstart Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics are and Sixers are looking for their first wins of the season. This should be one of the more exciting games on Friday night’s NBA card.
The Boston Celtics are a new look team this year. Kyrie Irving will be making his third start for the Celtics. The 76ers will be playing in their first home game, with all their drafted pieces healthy.
The Boston Celtics lost star guard Gordon Heyward in Tuesday night’s loss against Cleveland. Heyward fractured his leg, and dislocated his ankle, in one of the more gruesome injuries in league history. He will be out for the remainder of the year.
The Celtics ended up losing in Cleveland, 102-99. The Celtics showed heart, and battled back after losing their star. New Celtic and all star Kyrie Irving, had 22 points in his debut.
Irving was under the microscope for the opener. With all the off season hype surrounding him this summer, he played well against his former team. Irving also chipped in 10 assists for a double double in the loss.
Last night, the Celtics lost again. This time to the Milwaukee Bucks, 108-100. The Greek Freak was unstoppable against the Celtics defense. He had 37 points, and 13 rebounds.
Defensively, the Celtics allowed the Bucks to shot 50% from the floor in the loss. Boston can be given a pass for the last two losses, but will need to turn things around defensively against the Sixers.
The Philadelphia 76ers young lineup is finally healthy, and able to play with each other when it counts. The Sixers young core of Simmons, Embiid and Fultz should make some noise this season in the East.
The young Sixers were on the road last night in their first game of the year. Philadelphia took the loss, 115-120. Ben Simmons did not disappoint in his first pro game. He had 18 points, 10 rebound and five assists in the five point loss at Washington.
Center Joel Embiid was good in his first start. He finished with 18 points and 13 rebounds in 27 minutes of action. Markell Fultz played decent. He added 10 points in 18 minutes of play.
The Sixers held their own against the Wizards in the loss. If it weren’t for two costly turnovers down the stretch, the Sixers could have won the game. They should be exciting to watch in this matchup.
