Boston Celtics @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Celtics lost Gordon Hayward but they still have a very formidable team surrounding Kyrie Irving. Kyrie wanted to leave Cleveland to be “the guy” and now is his chance. The Celtics are 0-2 on the season, losing to two tough teams, Cleveland and Milwaukee. They’ll get back on track against the 76ers. Jaylen Brown has played well this year and will continue to get a lot of minutes.
The 76ers will be a tough team this season. Ben Simmons might be the best player on this roster after impressing the league in his first game. The 76ers are limiting Joel Embiid to around 20-25 minutes a night, which obviuolsy hurts them. The 76ers need to get Jerryd Bayless off the floor in the final minutes of games. Jahlil Okafor, where are you?
