In the NBA game on Tuesday night, the Boston Celtics will go to Wells Fargo Center to meet the Philadelphia 76ers.

Philadelphia 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers have won in a row and are a half-game back for third place in the East. Philadelphia led by 13 points after a quarter and defeated Cleveland 103-93 at home on Saturday with a long-distance shooting percentage of 48%. Joel Embiid dominated the court with 40 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists.

Boston Celtics
The Celtics (33-25) have won eight consecutive games and have soared to sixth place in the East. On Sunday, Boston led Atlanta by 19 points in the third quarter, winning 105-95 at home. Jayson Tatum scored the highest 38 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for 13 of 27 shots. Jaylen Brown contributed 17 points and 9 rebounds to the Celtics.

The newly acquired James Harden (hamstring) won't appear on the team until after the All-Star game. The Celtics are tearing apart, and the 76ers will miss Seth Curry's ability to pull the floor open. Win away with Boston.
