The Celtics have been led by shooting guard Jaylen Brown, who so far has 22 points and four assists along with four rebounds. Center Joel Embiid has led the way so far for Philadelphia, as he has 24 points and five assists in addition to six boards and two blocks.
the 76ers have lost 81% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up

What to Know
The Philadelphia 76ers will take on the Boston Celtics at 7:30 p.m. ET Monday at TD Garden after having had a few days off. Both teams looked pretty sloppy on the offensive side of the ball the last time they faced off, scoring just 175 points combined.
The 76ers came up short against the Brooklyn Nets this past Thursday, falling 114-105. A silver lining for the Sixers was the play of center Joel Embiid, who had 32 points and six assists along with nine rebounds.
Meanwhile, Boston was able to grind out a solid win over the New York Knicks this past Saturday, winning 114-107. Shooting guard Josh Richardson was the offensive standout of the matchup for Boston, shooting 5-for-7 from beyond the arc and finishing with 27 points and five boards.
The Sixers are expected to lose this next one by 5.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past three games, so buyers beware.
Boston’s victory lifted them to 15-15 while Philadelphia’s loss dropped them down to 15-15. We’ll see if Boston can repeat their recent success or if Philadelphia bounces back and reverse their fortune.
