Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics odds and point spread

"It's obviously an honor to play in that rivalry". The C's have been a markedly different team at home than on the road, and Rozier has been the poster child for that.

Bledsoe struggled for much of the seven-game set, and his war of words with Celtics guard Terry Rozier added some off-court drama to the hard-fought series.

Six players are averaging in double figures for the Sixers in the playoffs, they are JJ Redick (20.0), Joel Embiid (18.7), Ben Simmons (18.2), Marco Belinelli (16.6) and Ersan Ilyasova (10.8). On down the line.

They ended up with a flawless 4-0 record both straight up and against the spread at home in the first round and have gone an impressive 8-1 SU and ATS in their last nine at TD Garden overall, dating back to the regular season.

While we were enjoying the Red Sox game, my cousin Dan was enjoying the Celtics game in dramatic playoff fashion. Brown and the Celtics have come a long way since they lost Irving for the season so it's hard to take the numbers from that one game too seriously. They're an excellent defensive team. I think it's incredibly exciting to revisit that with my young guys and show them, before we even got into X's and O's and scout tape, a look at the history here. Ben just has that ability to distribute the ball really well.

Al Horford provided not only his voice but probably his best stretch of games in a Celtics uniform over the last seven games. Philly's last win came in 1982. If you want to consider thorns in each other's sides, for Philly it was Boston's Sam Jones while Bird always considered Andrew Toney poison for the Celtics.

Celtics forward Jaylen Brown is "doubtful" for Game 1 of the team's series against the Philadelphia 76ers, according to head coach Brad Stevens.

That will put pressure on the Celtics to play the way they mostly did at home in sweeping the four games on the parquet in the first round against the Bucks, without as numerous lulls that allowed Milwaukee to extend the series to seven games. Markelle Fultz, who was "traded" from the Celtics to the Sixers, who accepted Boston's first pick in the draft, did not play against the Celtics in the four games but has since returned.

Jaylen Brown strained his right hamstring in the second quarter of Saturday's Game 7 win over Milwaukee, didn't return in the second half, and was still tight yesterday. He was pronounced fit to go but Stevens held him out as a precaution. The Sixers called timeout, giving the Celtics a little extra time to rest Horford before bringing him back.

Brett Brown discussed matching up against a Boston Celtics defense that just recently did a nice job controlling Giannis Antetokounmpo.

I had just attended my first baseball game at Fenway Park on the 26th, when we stopped inside the Yawkey Way Store after the game had concluded. The Sixers are the third seed in the conference and are coming off their first series win since 2012.
