Celtics vs. Sixers Game Thread

Chat during the game, which will be televised in Philadelphia, with us.

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

First off: our condolences go out to Joel Embiid and his family on the passing of his brother, Arthur. Embiid, mentor and friend Luc Mbah a Moute, as well as Coach Brett Brown will not be in attendance tonight due to this tragedy. The game, in relation, is meaningless.

This I believe is the last home game in Philly this preseason. The team won't be back in town until their home opener against Miami. Nerlens Noel is out with an upper respiratory infection.
