Sixers vs Celtics Preview
On Monday night at TD Garden in Boston, the Celtics and 76ers will renew their rivalry after both squads have had ample rest since taking down the Nets Atlanta, respectively. The Celtics struggled with the Hawks and the Sixers destroyed the Nets.
After winning their regular-season series 3-1 against the Sixers, can the Celtics continue their success against them?

Recent form analysis

Can the Celtics start strong at home?

The Boston Celtics had the No. 2 defense in the NBA this season and made it to the Finals thanks to that defense last year, yet in their four games against Atlanta this postseason, Trae Young led his Hawks team to score 121.3 PPP against them - was this just an aberration or should we be concerned? Al Horford is starting to show signs of his age while Marcus Smart dealt with ankle injuries throughout the year - doubts may linger until Boston has put together several strong playoff performances at once.


Will Joel Embiid play?

Philadelpia played its opening two second-round games without Embiid last season, and it didn't go well: James Harden averaged only 18 points while shooting below 40% from the field and 25% from 3-point range; Tyrese Maxey has improved dramatically since last year, but Boston still have enough guards available to cover both Harden and Maxey; without Embiid at their side, Harden and Maxey may struggle against multiple guards on defense and on offense; without any help, they may face an uphill struggle versus an uphill struggle

Our Betting Pick for Today
Betting on the game! Sixers +7.5
I think the Celtics will win game 1, but 7.5 points is way too much to give in this matchup.

Over Under Sixers vs Celtics (213.5)

Fans and sports bettors should expect a lower-scoring Game 1 for several reasons. First, the 76ers may still be recovering from their extended layoff and need some time to find their rhythm offensively.

Second, both teams boast outstanding defensive units in the NBA. Philadelphia allowed the third-fewest points per game during regular season play, while Boston yielded fifth; both also rank bottom-11 in terms of pace, thus limiting opportunities to score.

Take the Under in Game 1. Recent meetings between these teams have averaged just 208.7 points on average; therefore, taking this route would be best in Game 1.
