Philadelphia looks to play the spoiler as they try to ruin Boston’s push in the East.
The Celtics who were one of the hottest teams in the NBA, has fallen back to the pack and is now in the danger zone.
After sitting in the 3rd seed for a majority of the season, the Celtics have dropped 4 in a row and are now in the middle of the pack in the East.
Boston now sits in 6th place, just a game back of 3rd, but also now just 4 games ahead from the 8th spot.
Jae Crowder has been battling an ankle injury and his presence over the past 3 games has been a key factor missing. After seeing Oklahoma City put up 130 on them, the Raptors followed a similar suit and put up 109 against them.
Defense has been a problem all season long for them as they are giving up 104 points per game. With Crowder still out, Marcus Smart and Evan Turner are going to have to step their games up. The two have been put in place of him, but the results just haven’t been there for the duo.
The 76ers are once again in the middle of a losing streak.
Philadelphia has dropped 4 in a row and 17 of their last 18. With their loss to Oklahoma City on Friday, they have no hit 60 losses. With the way they’ve been playing, it’s safe to say there is a lot more to come.
The silver lining through all these struggles has been the ability of Nik Stauskas. The Michigan forward had 23 points last time out and has hit double digits in 4 of the last 5 games. Stauskas joins a young group that will get younger with their upcoming lottery pick.
Philadelphia could be short handed here as Robert Covington and Richaun Holmes are both listed as QUESTIONABLE for Sunday.
