Philadelphia 76ers Betting
Joel Embiid is back and he helped his team in their last game by providing 21 points, 14 rebounds and three triples. Ben Simmons was named an NBA All-Star and he showed it by leading the team with 31 points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals. Tobias Harris also had a good night with 21 points, nine rebounds and four assists. It was a loss registered against the bottom-dwelling Hawks and they are coming in against the Celtics without Al Horford. It should be a good game to watch but they need to make smart decisions facing a team who is coached by Brad Stevens.

Boston Celtics Betting
The Boston Celtics have been inconsistent recently but against the Golden State Warriors, they had a good chance to address the chinks in the armor. They had Jayson Tatum back and he made his return felt immediately by scoring 20 points, six rebounds and two assists. Marcus Smart came off the bench with 21 points and six assists while Gordon Hayward led the team in scoring with 25 points along with eight rebounds and three triples. The Celtics look to roll again but they may play this game without Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter is still a few games away from returning. But the depth of the Celtics will take over and will provide the Sixers a very difficult night.
Players to Watch: K. Walker PG 41 GP 41 GS 32.1 MIN 22.3 PTS 0.7 OR 3.2 DR 4 REB 5 AST 1 STL 0.6 BLK 2.2 TO 1.6 PF 2.3 AST/TO 22.1 PER
