On Tuesday, April 6th the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics meet for the third and final time this season. The 76ers have already captured the series by winning the two meetings. Those meetings occurred on January 20th (117-109) and 22nd (122-110) in Philly.
The Celtics hold the all-time record between the clubs with 262 in 454 meetings. Last season, the teams played four times with the 76ers winning three of the four contests.
A loss to the Grizzlies ruined a shot for the 76ers to reclaim sole position at the top of the Eastern Conference. Instead, they begin the week tied with the Nets in first overall.
Brooklyn subsequently beat the Knicks Monday to pull a half-game ahead so the 76ers need to win this match to even things up again.
Joel Embiid has returned from his leg injury but sat for rest Sunday (and likely a bit of load management after his injury) and it ended up costing Philly the game.
He’s expected to play Tuesday and while he hasn’t had to face the Celtics with Robert Williams as a starter even at 80 percent he’ll be a handful for the young Celtic.
In the loss to Memphis, Tobias Harris led the way scoring 21 points, eight rebounds, and three assists.
Dwight Howard was one point shy of a double-double with 9 points and 12 rebounds. Shake Milton (14) and Paul Reed (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
George Hill is working his way back from a thumb injury but expected out on Tuesday as is Tyrese Maxey due to health and safety protocols.
It was a rough March for the Celtics who registered a record of 6 wins and 8 losses. They’ve been up and down all season so starting off April with two wins has fans in Beantown believing they’ve turned a corner again.
Adding Robert Williams to the starting rotation seems to be a positive choice with the young big gaining confidence each game out. The bench is still an issue but Evan Fournier finally found his range and could shift that dynamic.
Granted the two wins in April came versus the Rockets and a severely shorthanded Hornets squad. Still, the Celtics will take the wins as they come and the victory versus Charlotte was emphatic (116-86).
Jayson Tatum led Boston in scoring with 22 points and eight rebounds. Jaylen Brown played in spite of limping off the court the previous game collecting 17 points and six rebounds. Robert Williams registered 16 points and eight rebounds
Evan Fournier continued to be hot from the perimeter (4 of 5) scoring 17 points. In fact, the Celtics as a team shot well from the perimeter with 21 made 3-pointers.
Romeo Langford finally returned from injury to make his season debut. Semi Ojeleye (side) and Tristan Thompson (health and safety protocols) are listed as out.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Although the Celtics starting lineup with Williams is much better, I’m not sold they’ve fixed all their issues. Williams as noted will have his hands full trying to limit Embiid who always gets up for games versus the Celts.
