Both of these teams are looking to make up ground on Toronto in the Atlantic Division. Boston stood pat while Philly ungraded at the deadline.
There is no disputing the talent of these teams. Philly would love to get a win to try and show where they are in the pecking order. A loss and they are tied up.
The Celtics are playing some good ball right now, or at least they were until the two teams from L.A. breezed through town and dealt them a couple of losses. Getting back to winning at Philly will be tough.
In the losses the defense let them down. They are fifth in the league, yielding only 105ppg, but in the losses they gave up 123 and 129 points. Philadelphia is another team that can score well.
This is an especially bad spot as Kyrie Irving is out for a little while due to a knee injury he sustained against the Lakers. Boston has nice depth and some players play better when he is not in the lineup but you don’t want him out.
One of those players is Terry Rozier who is kind of ling Irving light. Look for him to get more time and make the most of it over the next stretch. Its a good thing he was not dealt last week.
The Celtics get much more democratic with their scoring when Irving is not on the floor. That means lots of opportunity for Rozier and others.
Philly is about as all in as they can get now. The addition of Tobias Harris up front gives them another scorer and they added size behind Joel Embiid too in that deal with the Clippers. .
After slotting in Harris the 76ers probably have the best starting lineup in the Eastern Conference, at least in terms of pure talent. I still think the shortcomings of Ben Simmons are eventually going to be too much for this group to overcome in the playoffs.
As much as they have added through the season Joel Embiid is still the key for Philly. When he is at his best he is nearly impossible to defend by true big men. Even Al Horford is going to have a problem.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Philly should be favoured in this one. That is the easy call with them at home and no Kyrie.
I still think Boston is going to put up a lot of opposition. They have their roster as such that they can handle playing without him.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers ATS
I am hoping this is over inflated to the Philly side so we can get Boston on a nice cover.
