Philadelphia 76ers end road trip

Philadelphia 76ers end road trip

The Philadelphia 76ers meets the Boston Celtics, ending their three-game road trip before going back at home. 76ers suffered a 108-97 loss against the Knicks on their last match, which is why they are hoping to bounce back in this game. They actually started their road trip with a win against the Spurs, which is why it is a surprise that they lost their match against the Knicks. As for the Celtics, they won their last match against the Pistons, their third in their last four games. Since they won their last match, this squad is hopeful to pull off another win in this game. This meeting will be on February 9, 2023, at 8:30 AM (GMT+8), with the Celtics playing as hosts.

This match will just be the second of their four-game regular season series, where the Celtics won their first. These two teams are in the Eastern Conference, but their place in the standings are not far from each other. The hosts are at the first of the Eastern Conference with 38 wins from their 54 games. From those 38 wins, 20 of those are coming at home, as they do well playing at home. The visitors on the other hand are at the third of the standings, winning 34 of their 52 games. 34 of those wins are from their 14 wins on the road, as they won 14 of their 24 road games.

This squad is currently on a good run, as they won eight of their last 10 games in the league. However, despite their late success, they are coming from a loss against the Knicks, in a 108-97 defeat. They actually had an early lead in the first, but were outscored by the Knicks in the second. During the fourth quarter, they were heavily outscored by their opponent, in a 32-18 scoring. This squad is just three games behind the Celtics, who is at the top of the standings. When it comes to road games, this team is actually doing well, winning four of their last five away games. Their defense has been their number one advantage, as they only allow 108 or fewer in two of their last three games. They are the 14th in offense scoring 114.6 points per game, and fourth in defense, allowing 110.9 points per game.

Joel Embiid and James Harden continue to lead the 76ers with 33.4 and 21 points per game respectively. Although this squad has no fresh injuries, but Embiid is listed as questionable in this game.

Just as their opponent is on a good run, this team is also in a good momentum currently, as they won on their previous game. In fact, they won three of their last four games, so it is no longer surprising that they are at the top of their standings. They had a 111-99 road win against the Pistons on their previous game. However, they failed to be as sharp as they were on their previous matches. They are lucky that they have guys who could be consistent in playing, where they draw strength from. When it comes to the three-point line, this squad is shooting 37.1% from that area. In offense, they are the third with 117.6 points per game they are and sixth in defense, allowing 111.6 points per game.

Jayson Tatum leads the Celtics with 30.9 poi8nts per game, but Jaylen Brown is also providing numbers for this team. However, Kornet, Williams III, and Brown are all listed as doubts in this game. Smart and Gullinari are both out due to their injuries.
