Sixers vs Celtics Preview
On Monday night at TD Garden in Boston, the sixers won a barnburner as James Harden took the game over and led the Sixers to the upset win, can he do it again? If he does the Celtics will be in a huge whole. Expect the Celtics to come out on fire in what may be a must-win game for them.

Recent form analysis

Can the Celtics bounce back 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.
Even without Embiid the Sixers are dangerous and they proved it in game one. The Celtics have to figure out how to guard James Harden if they won’t to even up this series.


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.
I know the Sixers won game one without Embiid but it took a super-human effort from James Harden. Can he do it again?

Our Betting Pick for Today
Betting on the game! Sixers +8.5
I think the Celtics will win game 2, but 8.5 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 2 for several reasons. First, the 76ers may still be playing without Joel Embiid.

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.
