Game Preview


On December 1 at TD Garden, the Philadelphia 76ers (12-6) take on the Boston Celtics (14-4).


After losing 124-114 to the New Orleans Pelicans in their last game, Philadelphia was unable to stretch its winning streak to three games. Joel Embiid, the 76ers’ center, was out due to sickness, so they had no response for the interior attack of New Orleans. Philadelphia ranks in the best 8 of the NBA in second-chance points (15.9 per game) and fastbreak scores with 17.0 per game, and they lead the NBA in both free throw production with 27.8 per game and free throw accuracy (85.6%). Philadelphia plays above-average defense as well; the 76ers rank easily in the best 8 in the NBA in terms of steals (8.3 per game) and blocked shots (6.5 per game). The Sixers are playing a fluid style of basketball under Nick Nurse, which is bringing out the best in Maxey and Harris. The Sixers will pose a serious challenge to Boston’s defense if Embiid is fully recovered.



After defeating the Chicago Bulls 124-97 in their last game, Boston has now won two straight games. During its current winning streak, Boston has now limited rivals to 103 points or less in each of its last two games. With their victory, Boston is now 8-2 in its past 10 games and 8-0 at home overall. In terms of shooting percentage, the Boston Celtics average 116.3 points on 47.2% and giving up 106.7 points on 43.9%, while Jaylen Brown averages 21.9 points and 5 rebounds and Jayson Tatum averages 27.7 points and 8.8 rebounds. Boston’s roster is built to score at all three levels, spread the floor, and make snap decisions. It has been among the NBA’s most dominant teams thus far this season.
