Celtics -4 for 2 units. 76ers blew a 20 point lead last time these teams met. That game was in London, this game is in Boston. Celtics are too good at defense for this young 76ers team. 76ers have the 23rd ranked defense. It would help if the Celtics have Horford back against the league’s best rebounding team. Jaylen Brown just keeps getting better and better and he is averaging 14.1 points and 5.7 rebounds. Kyrie is still great, he is starting to look smarter and smarter everyday for leaving the Cavs and their turmoil a year early. Celtics are a good road team because defense travels, they should cover comfortably in this one at home. Kyrie may not play, and if that happens I may bet 76ers at halftime. I still like Celtics defense enough to play this.
