PHI vs BOS Dream11 Match Prediction
PHI vs BOS Dream11: Boston Celtics will be looking to snap their three-game skid when they play fellow Eastern Conference rivals Philadelphia 76ers at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia on Friday morning. The good news is that the Sixers are shorthanded due to Joel Embiid’s absence, so the Celtics will see this game as a good chance of beating their one of the main rivals in their own den.
With a 25-10 record in the season, the Celtics are 3rd in the Eastern Conference rankings and are 7-3 in the last 10 games. They are only one game behind Miami Heat on the table, but a huge six games behind leaders Milwaukee Bucks.
The Sixers, meanwhile, ended their four-game losing run with a 120-113 win over Oklahoma City Thunder. Ben Simmons had a double-double, while Josh Richardson ended the game with a team-high 23 points.
