Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics had to work hard to eliminate the Atlanta Hawks in the first round. Although the Celtics are considered favorites, this is a battle of titans as they fight to advance. We made a pick against the spread for every game, but now it’s time to look at the Sixers vs Celtics.
Why the Sixers will win
Joel Embiid is unstoppable. Embiid does very well against the Celtics and his knees may be a concern, but not in the playoffs. If he has a big series, the Celtics will lose. The Sixers have a serious coaching advantage. Doc Rivers may be on the hot seat and questioned by many, but he can coach.
Why the Celtics will win
The Celtics have the best duo in the NBA in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. On any given night, these two can carry the team to victory. This Boston team is deep and has several players coming off the bench that would start on any other team. This is going to be a series to remember.
Sixers vs Celtics Series prediction
The Celtics are in a prime spot to win game one. The Sixers will be kicking off the rust and the Celtics will be in game mode. But the Sixers are not to be overlooked. They have talent, depth, and better coaching. This series has seven games written all over it. This is a back-and-forth series and in the end, the Celtics will emerge winners.
