The Boston Celtics host the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at TD Garden, in a game between two of the top Eastern Conference.
The Celtics come off a close loss against the Indiana Pacers, with Kemba Walker as the main highlight for the Green and White formation. He finished with an impressive 44 points and 7 assists, but it just wasn’t enough to get the win. They face the 76ers at home tonight, in a rivalry that’s been taking shape in the last few years, and fatigue could play an important role in the outcome of the game. Gordon Hayward finally returned from his injury, giving Brad Steven a possibility of operate with his squad fully healthy. The Celtics have the edge tonight due to their home court atmosphere, a place where they usually perform much better.
With 3 wins in their last 3 games, the 76ers arrive motivated for tonight’s matchup. Wins against the Raptors and the Nuggets, two top teams, should be enough for Philadelphia to start the game on a high note, as Embiid is finally reaching his old level. They will try to end the Celtics unbeaten home record, while at the same time overtaking them in the Eastern Conference standings. Josh Richardson is still out due to injury, but Matisse Thybulle is taking very good care of the job. With 4 games on tonight in the NBA, this should be the most anticipated one.
The Celtics and the 76ers are both very good defensively, and I expect that the trend continues tonight at TD Garden. This should be a low-scoring game.
