The 76ers have played some atrocious offensive basketball over the course of the last few nights, scoring just 88 points in both of their last two games. Boston was in pretty bad shape without G Rajon Rondo, but in the last four games in which he has started and finished, the team has put up 104, 116, 108, and 100 points. Though the Sixers have shown the potential for that type of output offensively, they just haven’t done it consistent enough for our liking. These two teams genuinely hate each other, and having the NBA schedule a back to back for them probably won’t help matters by the end of the day on Saturday. The only reason that we are going to go with Philly in this one though, is because of how poorly the C’s have played here in this building over the course of the last year. Remember that the C’s lost twice at this venue in the playoffs last year and once in the regular season as well. Tomorrow will be a better day for Boston, but this one will be lost.
Celtics @ 76ers Pick: Philadelphia 76ers +1
Celtics @ 76ers Prediction: 76ers 98 – Celtics 95
