Analysis
Philadelphia has already gone Under in each of its last three games. But they did allow Charlotte to shoot 51.7% Wednesday in a loss. I don’t think they’ll let Boston shoot that well. The Celtics are off a game where they shot 51.3%, so they are probably due for a downturn anway. That 51.3% shooting performance led to a 119-110 win in Indiana for the Celtics on Wednesday. Boston had three 30+ point quarters, made 18 three-pointers and went 21 of 25 from the line. Tatum and Brown combined for 67 points. No way the team will be that prolific again here. But Boston can rely on its defense, which has held the last five opponents to just 96 points per game. You’d have to go back to before Christmas to find the last time a team shot 50% or better against the Celtics. Before facing Charlotte, the Sixers hadn’t let an opponent hit 50% or better since December 13th! The Under is 7-1 in Philly’s last eight home games. They only scored 98 points on Wednesday, despite getting 31 from Joel Embiid. Getting back to what I was saying earlier about Boston not being able to match its prolific shooting from the last game. They are 33-15-1 Under following a straight-up win by 10 or more points. Take the UNDER here.
