Philadelphia lost Ben Simmons ten days ago. The options remain in the attack, but it is almost impossible to replace the Australian in their own half of the floor. The Celtics have scored at least 122 points in their four final regular season matches. The Sixers' defense faces a tough test.
Boston played quite well a number of matches after the quarantine, so they are in good shape for the elimination games. In the last meeting, the team lost to Washington (90-96), although then the head coach gave the leaders a rest and this result did not surprise anyone.
The Celtics know how to cope with difficulties, tune in to serious challenges and skillfully take advantage of the opponent's problems, which are more than enough in Philadelphia now.
After the break, Philadelphia had a great three games, because they celebrated victory in all of them, but then difficulties began and the club slipped to the sixth line of the Eastern Conference, as a result of which they will meet with Boston in the playoffs.
"Sixers" need to add something as soon as possible, although there is not much time, since now every victory is worth its weight in gold. It is very important for the team to forget about recent failures and start thinking about the championship.
The Celtics have everything and the club is ready for confrontation and, in our opinion, it will dominate in this match. In a word, we expect a confident victory for the “Celts”.
Our prediction is the victory of Boston Celtics, taking into account the handicap (-3) points for the coefficient 1.61 in BC 1xBet
