The Celtics will try to rebound from a 117-122 loss to the Pacers, a game in which Semi Ojeleye was kept out of the scoring column, missing his sole shot attempt. Kemba Walker had a huge game with 44 points (16-of-28 from the field), 7 assists and 7 threes.
The Sixers are coming off a 97-92 home win over the Denver Nuggets. Joel Embiid had a big all-around game with 22 points (8-of-18 from the field), 6 assists and 10 rebounds.
In the last head-to-head matchup between the teams, the Celtics lost on the road. Boston will attempt to keep its momentum going having won 4 of their last 5 games. The 76ers, also 4 of their last 5, will try to continue their recent success as well. Both teams are expected to be mostly healthy.
The 76ers are averaging 26.84 assists, while the Celtics are averaging only 23.435. Limiting this gap in passing will be key for a Celtics win.
The Celtics had just one day off between this game and their last matchup. Boston’s coming matchups are away at DAL, home vs DET and home vs CHA.
