NBA on TNT: Celtics Host Banged up 76ers

Boston Celtics

The fans at TD Garden see the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics when they take their seats on Thursday. The game will tip-off at 7:00 pm EST and TNT will have the telecast.

Oddsmakers opened the Celtics as -6-point favorites versus the 76ers, while the game’s total opened at 212.5. The line now shows Boston as 4.5-point favorites and the total is down to 208.

Raptors Win was Costly for 76ers

Philadelphia won its last outing, a 117-111 result against the Toronto Raptors on January 15. The 76ers covered in that game as a +2-point underdog, while the 228 combined points took the game OVER the total.

Philly has won 5 of their last 6 games coming into tonight. Then the injury bug hit against Toronto. The club is still unsure about when rookie Markelle Fultz’s shoulder will allow him to return.

J.J. Redick suffered a “bone edema and small Cortical crack in the left fibula,” that will be re-evaluate in 10-to-14 days. Redick has been great for the Sixers. He is averaging 17.3 points per game. That is 5.1 higher than his career average. He is 40.5 percent on 3-pointers. He is also 94.6 percent from the foul line.

The Sixers will also be without bench player Richaun Holmes for a second straight game.

Joel Embiid scored 34 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Monday.

In their only loss over their last 6 games, the Sixers blew a 22-point first-half lead to the Celtics in London. They blew a 22-point lead against the Raptors as well on their last visit. Then they hung on after squandering a 21-point lead Monday.

Celtics Playing 2nd game in 11 Days

Boston was a 116-113 loser in its last match at home against the Pelicans. They failed to cover the -5.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 229 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

The loss was only the Celtics second game in the last 11 days.

Kyrie Irving revealed Wednesday he has a sore left shoulder. He is questionable for Thursday. Marcus Smart, Guerschon Yabusele and Abdel Nader have reported being sick as well.

The Celtics have won 13 of the last 14 games against the Sixers. The last seven have been at TD Garden.
