The Sixers host the Wizards before their Thursday night showdown with Boston. Ben Simmons is questionable against the Wizards with a sprained ankle so it’s safe to assume his status is uncertain for the game against Boston.
These two teams played in the third game of the season, when neither team had won a game. The Celtics ended up winning on the road to avoid an 0–3 start and dropped the Sixers to 0–2.
Both Simmons and Embiid struggled in that game, as much as they have in any game so far this season. They combined to go 8-for-27. Embiid hoisted six three-pointers and missed them all. Simmons turned it over four times.
Boston’s defense is tough but that isn’t apt to happen again. Keep an eye on Simmons in Washington to see 1) if he plays and 2) how well he moves. If he plays and the ankle reacts well, there’s a chance he’ll play the back-to-back.
Kyrie Irving scored a game-high 21 points in that first matchup and Terry Rozier scored 14 points off the bench. Boston was trying to stave off an 0–3 start in that game; in this one, the C’s are trying to avoid losing two in a row for the first time all season.
Boston was beaten on its home floor by Detroit earlier this week. Andre Drummond had himself a big game and Avery Bradley rendered Kyrie Irving inefficient to get the Pistons a little closer to the top spot in the Eastern Conference with a big road win.
Jaylen Brown returned from injury, as did Marcus Morris. Brown will probably be the guy to cover Simmons, if he goes. Boston can also throw a smaller Marcus Smart or Terry Rozier on him but it’s nice to have the size to throw on Simmons. Irving and the other guard, whether it be Tatum or Smart or Rozier, can play off the ball on one of Philly’s shooters without much for repercussion.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction: Boston bounces back from its third loss with a win and cover at home.
Philly on the back-to-back means Joel Embiid may not play. Simmons is also questionable so I’m going to take Boston and take them big.
