Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics (By: Miyagi)
Celtics had a bad game offensively against the Nuggets and it's not just about their 105p but their overall offensive efficiency. Yet, they had a chance to get away with that after a great run in the third quarter but then they screwed up and ruined their momentum like they know best, as they were up by 5p in the last possession of that quarter and then gave the Nuggets a 3P while they committed an unnecessary 'American football' turnover inbounding the ball with a second left and gave another 2P to the Nuggets. Now, the tricky part is that the Nuggets have a terrible (below 20%) win rate in games that they were trailing after 3 quarters and as they were back against the wall with consequently bad offenses prior to those events, they regained the momentum and never gave another chance to the Celtics.
Maybe the Celtics deserved something better and maybe they will get it today, against the team they love to beat this season as they are up by 3-0 and they have faced the Sixers will all their different lineups (Saric-Covington, Butler, Butler-Harris)
The Celtics still rank among the top teams in offensive efficiency over the last 5 games while on the other side the Sixers rank among the worst 10 teams in defensive efficiency over the last three games and there has been nothing great about their defense recently. The Celtics are eager to bounce back, they have been a bad matchup for the Sixers who are on back to back games and had a tough game yesterday and I think the visitors are not the underdogs here but I'm also afraid of Embiid, like for real, so I find the Celtics' total points a much better option.
