Philadelphia

Before the start of the regular season, “Boston” and “Philadelphia” were considered one of the important contenders for the championship title. However, so far they do not always meet expectations.

Boston

The Celtics did not surprise with anything new during the season, but once again confirmed their status as one of the most stable teams in the Eastern Conference, which is good news.

For several seasons Boston has been confidently making the playoffs, this time from third place, where in the first round it has already played one match against Philadelphia. Brad Stevens' wards competently approached the meeting and beat the opponent with the same attitude (109-101).

The Celts knew about the Sixers' problems and took advantage of it. Of course, credit should be given to Jason Tatum and Jelane Brown for their fantastic play, who scored 61 points for two.

Philadelphia

After the restart of the season, Brett Brown's team changed beyond recognition, albeit in a negative direction. They had to forget about a stable game, while the club dropped to the sixth line of the Eastern Conference.

It is noticeable that the team lacks Ben Simmons, but for now he is forced to miss the starting playoffs. In the first round, Philadelphia was defeated by Boston (101-109), which was quite predictable, but the next meeting should take place in a different vein.

The Sixers know how to do better, especially since there are Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris in the ranks, who can easily lead the team, so it seems that Phil will surprise you this time.

Prediction

Boston did dominate the floor in the previous meeting, but it's hard to say that the Sixers players failed completely, rather, Brett Brown's charges lacked teamwork.

Philadelphia saw that it is possible to play against the Celtics and even claim to win, so in the second match of the series they will try to catch hold of Victoria, although we are ready to play it safe and offer a bet on the outsider's positive handicap.

Our prediction is the victory of the Philadelphia Sixers with a handicap (+7) points for the odds of 1.63 in BC 1xBet
