The class of the Eastern Conference as well as an old-school NBA rivalry.
While the Celtics were the preseason favorites to win the Atlantic Division, the 76ers were considered their closest competition. The Celtics currently have the best record in the Eastern Conference, but they only hold a 2.5-game lead on the 76ers.
Health is usually a problem for the 76ers, but their top rotation players are all ready for action. The Celtics are still without 2021-22 NBA Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart.
Smart being out is a blow to the Celtics, but they have Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. For those who want to see division rivals who also happen to be two of the best teams in the NBA, be sure to watch this one.
