The Sixers take the cake against the Celtics in their particular derby

The morbid every time Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics they face each other in the regular season is always guaranteed. Both franchises have created this particular derby when measured and last night was no exception.

The Sixers prevailed before their public by 111 to 99 to some Celtics that took too long to plug into the game. Those from Massachusetts won three of the four sets but it was not enough to overcome the disadvantage of the first.

Philly It took off like a plane. A first quarter with partial 32-14 that would serve them to play comfortably the rest of the night. on the back of a Joel Embid that smacks of Player of the Month, Doc Rivers’ men controlled the start of the game at all times.

The Cameroonian ended the night with 25 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists. He did not manage to extend his streak of consecutive games scoring 30 or more points but he was again the most outstanding of his team in the victory.

TobiasHarris, with 17 points and 9 rebounds, Seth Curry, with 17 goals and 7 assists and Tyrese Maxey, with 23 points in his personal account, helped Embiid’s work not be lonely. A rocky defense added to hot gunpowder in attack to decide everything soon.

In the Celtics nothing came out. Ime Udoka He tried a thousand different formulas, he used all his bench players and he did not hit the key. Except Juancho Hernangomez, who had no minutes, in Boston played almost to the pointer. The 13 player rotation it was not worth the coach to save himself from defeat.

Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum They were the most outstanding of those in green, who last night were in white, but at no time did they manage to put their rival in trouble. Tatum finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Brown added 21 points, as his team’s top scorer.

Of the men on the bench, just Payton Pritchard deserves a special mention. The point guard played 24 minutes but complied with what Udoka asked of him. He brought speed and verticality to the rim, momentarily disrupting the plans of philadelphia, to finish with 17 points.
