  • Time: 1 p.m. EST
  • Place: Wells Fargo Center

Probable Starters:

  • Sixers: Teej, TLC, Rock, Dario, Jah
  • Celtics: Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, Al Horford

Season Series: 3-0 Boston

Notes:

  • The Celtics’ leading scorer, Isaiah Thomas (knee bone bruise – I’m triggered), will miss his second straight game. Marcus Smart will start at point guard in his place
  • Justin Anderson has the poops (aka gastroenteritis) and will not play today
  • With just one game separating the Sixers from the #4 slot in the draft lottery and 1.5 games separating them from the #7 seed, we’re approaching must-lose territory
  • Gerald Henderson (hip) is expected to play, but he won’t start
