76ers vs Celtics Prediction & Player Prop of the Game: Tatum vs Embiid
Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers roll into TD Garden Arena to take on Jayson Tatum and the 1st place Boston Celtics in a Eastern Conference showdown.
The Celtics grabbed a 9 point win when these two teams met in October in Boston, 126-117, and they will be looking to push for another big Eastern conference win against the third place Sixers.
Will the Celtics further their lead at the top of the East or will the Sixers pick up a big win and climb one stop closer to the top spot?

Both of these teams are starting to prepare for the back half of the season, where games begin to mean just a little bit more, as the race for the coveted playoff spots heats up.
The Celtics look like they are going to be hard to dethrone at the top and that is largely due to the MVP caliber play of Jayson Tatum.
Tatum has been sensational this season and will have his hand in this game tonight, no doubt. (More on Tatum in a bit 😉 )
For the Sixers, Joel Embiid has been just as good and will look to avenge the Sixers early season loss and move the Sixers one step closer to the top of the East.
It is going to be a battle between these two rivals and will be incredibly entertaining to watch.
Given the recent trends, give me the home team to get the job done at home and cover.
The last 4 games between these two squads have been decided by 5 points or more and I see Tatum and Co. doing enough tonight to keep Joel Embiid and James Harden at bay and pick up a big win in the Garden.
Celtics -4.5 (-110)
Player Prop of the Game
Jayson Tatum o8.5 Rebounds (-108) Fan Duel
I love this prop based on how Tatum has been rebounding this season and his success against the Sixers.
Tatum has 9+ rebounds in 10 of his last 12 games, with 7 of those 12 being double digit rebounding games.
Couple that with the fact that Tatum has 9+ rebounds in 6 STRAIGHT GAMES against the Sixers and it is hard not to take this prop.
I think his Points+ Rebounds at over 38.5 is a fine look as well, as he should have a 30 point night tonight but given the fantastic trend of covering the 9+ rebounds, I am sticking with that!
Jayson Tatum Double-Double (+125)
