Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics Prediction:
Saturday, February 1st, the Atlantic Division rivals the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics play for the fourth and final time this season. In a reverse scenario to last season the 76ers have won all three matches to date.
Last season, the teams played four times with the Celtics winning three of the four games. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the 76ers in 261 of their 451 matches.
Despite winning the initial three matches between the teams the 76ers struggle on the road where they are 9-16.
They arrive in Boston on the heels of an embarrassing 117-127 loss to the lowly Atlanta Hawks on Thursday. In that defeat, Joel Embiid produced a double-double of 21 points and 14 rebounds in his second game back from the finger injury.
Ben Simmons led the club in scoring with 31 points, Shake Milton scored a career-high 27 points while Tobias Harris and Mike Scott chipped in 21 and 11 points respectively.
On the season, Joel Embiid is the team leader in scoring (23.4) and rebounds (12.8). While Ben Simmons leads the team in another trio of categories including assists (8.3), steals (2.2) and field goal percent (58.3%). Al Horford is tops in blocks (0.9).
Al Horford missed the match in Atlanta due to left knee soreness but is listed as probable. Josh Richardson remains out with a strained hamstring and has a projected return date of mid-February.
Winners of the last two games and five of their last six the Celtics are playing at a high clip. Boston has navigated a ton of injuries lately with at least one of Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown or Kemba Walker out in five of their previous six matches.
In the win versus the Warriors, all three players were available and it led to an easy 119-104 victory.
Gordon Hayward led the way with 25 points while each of Marcus Smart (21), Tatum (20), Brown (18) and Walker (13) each delivered double-digit scoring efforts.
On the season Kemba Walker is the team leader in scoring (22.0) and assists (5.0) while Jayson Tatum leads rebounding (6.9) and steals (1.4). Gordon Hayward tops field goal percent (51.7%), and Daniel Theis is the blocks (1.5) leader.
Although the Big 3 all played versus Golden State, Kemba Walker is still dealing with knee soreness which finds him listed as questionable for Saturday.
Javonte Green missed the last two games with left knee soreness while Enes Kanter (hip) missed the last four games with a right hip contusion.’ Both are listed as questionable to play versus the 76ers on Saturday.
Robert Williams III (bone edema, hip) was originally expected to return at the end of January but has been relisted as out until the end of February.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The teams are 5-5 in last 10 head to head
- The Celtics are 6-4 ATS in their last 10
- Over Under is 4-6 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
With the Eastern Conference second through sixth seeds separated by three games, every match versus those seeded teams is a must-win. While Boston holds a winning road record they play much better at home and following this match will play seven of their next 10 away from TD Garden.
The Celtics are also keen to get at least one victory in the season series for their confidence if nothing else. As for the 76ers they simply want to collect road wins.
