Philadelphia Sixers vs Boston Celtics Game 2 Predictions

The Boston Celtics were heavy favorites to beat Philly and advance. After the Joel Embiid injury, it seemed like an easy bet that the Celtics would dominate and advance. James Harden had other plans. Harden and the Sixers upset the Celtics in game 1 and now the series is wide open heading in the second game of the series.

No Embiid, No problem

The current point spread and the injury report suggests that Embiid is doubtful for game two. Philadelphia does not want to rush Embiid back and after stealing back the home-court advantage, they don’t have to. UPDATE: Embiid looks like now he is playing, which makes this look better than ever.

The Celtic’s problem is coaching

The Celtics have been outcoached in every series. The start power of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum keeps them in games, but the mistakes on defense are ugly. They did not have an answer for Harden in game one and they had time to make adjustments. Mark my words. When and if the Celtics are eliminated coaching will be an issue and this team will never be the same again.

Philadelphia Sixers vs Boston Celtics Game 2 Predictions

The Celtics need this game. That is why the point spread jumped two points from the opening line. The problem is that the Celtics are not 11 points better than the Sixers. Philly is 6-0-1 ATS in the last seven games overall and 4-0-1 ATS in the last five road games. The Celtics will win, but they won’t cover.
