Today: Boston Celtics - Philadelphia 76ers live 12/10/2023


3 hours ago — ... Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers 114-106 on Sunday in the preseason opener for both teams. Pritchard shot 9 for 14, including 6 ...


Head coach Joe Mazzulla may need to be more conservative with Robert Williams III's minutes than he was in Game 6. The spacing didn't look great during those stretches, and while he pitched in as the helper and rotator defensively, he doesn't look like the same player, at least physically, on that end of the floor. Still, part of the Celtics' appeal lies in their struggles. Tatum turned in one of his worst performances ever through the first three quarters of Game 6; Horford suddenly looks his age; Boston got stripped on, like, every third drive to start the second half Thursday night; Derrick White has stopped spitting fire; and, well, they still won. Not only did they win, but the Celtics initially built a 16-point lead. Squandering it wasn't pretty. Tatum Won't Struggle That Badly, That Early Again2 of 4Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty ImagesThe Boston Celtics just beat the Philadelphia 76ers on the road. In a potential closeout game. With Jayson Tatum shooting a dismal 5-of-21 from the field. For much of the second half, that game seemed tailor-made for Philly. Yet the Sixers lost. And it's hard to imagine Tatum going 1-of-14 from the field over the first 43 minutes of Game 7. In front of their home crowd, Tatum will almost certainly shoot better (his true shooting percentage was almost four points higher in home games during the regular season). As the old adage goes, role players are typically better at home during the playoffs, too (though Boston's were fine in Game 6). The Celtics seemed to discover something in starting Robert Williams III. He and Horford started the bulk of Boston's games last season, but Joe Mazzulla was partial to a smaller group. Jayson Tatum was quick to quiet the crowd with 10 quick points in the first quarter as he and Embiid exchanged blows early in the game. The Sixers turned the ball over seven times in the first quarter but a 15-4 run to end the quarter put them up by a point, but they would lose that lead for good just a few minutes later. How to watch 76ers vs. Celtics Game 5 on TV and via live May 9, 2023 — The Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics face off in TD Garden for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Tuesday, May 9. The first quarter had been Jaylen Brown’s money maker in the first two games, but he was quiet out of the gate on Friday night. He came to life in the second quarter scoring 9 of his 23 on the night as James Harden’s struggles from Game 2 carried into Game 3. He was just 2/14 on Wednesday night and had just one field goal through the first three and a half quarters. Horford’s hot shooting seals gameEmbiid carried his side in the second half making runs to bring Boston within a basket or two, but he couldn’t down the Celtics on his own.

Harden’s shooting struggles continueThe night started in a celebratory fashion as Joel Embiid was awarded the MVP trophy in front of his fans. It was an emotional pregame presentation as the Sixers center shed tears as he brought his son to celebrate with him, but Embiid was able to push those emotions to the side and had a fantastic night in his second game back from injury.
