Saturday will see an Eastern Conference showdown as the Boston Celtics head to the Citly of Brotherly Love to take on the Philadelphia 76ers. These two Atlantic Division foes have a long history, and there will certainly be no love lost on Saturday.
The Celtics have been on a roll as of late, winning four of their last six games.
This will be the second game of a back-to-back, and they are taking on the Sacramento Kings on Friday.
The Sixers will be at no advantage for rest, as they are also going to be on the second of a back-to-back.
They are facing the Orlando Magic at home on Friday. Previous to that game, they have lost four straight and are in last place in the East.
The Celtics have had an up and down year but are putting themselves in a good position to make the playoffs. They are currently in 5th place in the Eastern Conference and have a good chance to improve by two games over the weekend.
The Celtics currently rank 12th in scoring offense this year with 105.0 points per game.
They are 25th in rebounding with 42.1 and 2nd in assists with 24.2 per night. They are middle of the pack defensively, allowing 104.4 points per game which ranks them 16th in the NBA.
Isaiah Thomas leads the Celtics in both scoring and assists with 26.1 points and 6.2 dimes per contest. Avery Bradley has contributed well and scores 17.7 points per game plus grabbing 7.8 rebounds.
New Celtic Al Horford is adding 14.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 5.0 assists per night.
Hopes were high for the Sixers coming into 2016. They landed the #1 overall pick in the draft and took Ben Simmons who many saw as a poor man’s LeBron James.
They got away from “The Process” finally, and Joel Embiid finally got healthy. Although things have not gone according to plan (to say the least), the young team shows potential and may find the right track eventually.
As of now, they are in their familiar last place spot in the East.
Philadelphia comes into this game ranked 26th in scoring offense with 97.9 points per game. They rank 20th in rebounding with 43.3 and 9th in assists with 22.7 per contest.
The Sixers defense has been pretty horrible, allowing 107.9 points per game which ranks 25th in the league.
Emiid has been impressive and won Rookie of the Month for November. He leads the team with 18.2 points per game as well as grabbing 7.8 rebounds.
Ersan Ilyasova adds 13.0 points and 5.7 boards while Jarred Bayless contributes 11.0 points, 4.0 boards and 4.3 assists.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
The Celtics are the much better team. They are also on a role as of late. Neither team has an advantage in terms of rest, since they will both be on the second night of a back-to-back.
