Boston Celtics vs Philadelphia 76ers – NBA : The Celtics have been having a complicated season and full of adversities
since game 1 of the regular season.
Even on their last game, they were heavily robbed by the referees. The team came off a series where they have beaten the Bucks only after 7 games.
Against the 76ers they weren’t favoured at all, but they are now leading 3-1, still having 2 games to play at home, where they can take advantage of that.
The team has been doing well defensively, I think that is really important for their (great) coach Brad Stevens, and despite their offensive stats not being nothing special,
the defence they can play against important players (such as Embiid or Simmons) has been remarkable, despite having some periods where they’ve slacked off.,
The 76ers drove their fans and even the bookmakers crazy, giving them a lot of respect after beating the Heat by 4-1 pretty convincingly and with the games being almost always controlled by them, but the team was completely surprised by the Celtics that,
even with some absences, have started off full steam ahead and won games that nobody expected (especially game 3).
In any way, on game 4, they deserve credit and despite having been benefited, they have fought hard and didn’t pull off a “Toronto” (that basically accepted their “sweep”) and now they have good chances of at least forcing a game 6.
The team has also been having some offensive weaknesses, but they have been shooting free throws well and on the last game, it was mainly the low number of turnovers that helped them to win.
Saric has been playing very well and Covington needs to improve.
Boston Celtics vs Philadelphia 76ers – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This game will be incredible, not only by its importance but also because the players are super motivated and there has been a lot of “heat” during the games.
I think that the 76ers are improving and that the Celtics, despite their quality, don’t have the talent to fight with the Sixers. Therefore, I’ll go with the visitors.
