How many games did we face Embiid last season? Once?

Horford guarding Embiid is going to be interesting.
Horford will compete against him but I fear that our team D is nowhere near ready to deal with Embid.  If the Sixers play well, C's could be in for a long night.

Joel Embiid too physical for Al Horford to handle.

They should start Baynes and slide Tatum and Jaylen down and bring Marcus off the bench.
That would mean that Horford would have to guard Simmons which would probably be worse.

I was thinking Horford on Covington... Who would guard Horford on the other end? Horford on Embid is not a good match up. I like Baynes on Embid.

Go Celts! This is a must win but it won't be easy.

Finally a game I can easily watch! Just in tome to watch us squash the 76ers, too!
I'm bitter.

Will not be surprise or upset if we lose this game.  Sixers have their guys in order and some good young talent and depth.  We're, understandably still figuring it out.

I bet smart doesn't tape, he hurts his ankles every season. AB use to do it too because it was better for him on defense but the last time he hurt his ankle he started taping and said he would never go without it again. I was surprised he didn't start after that double ankle surgery his rookie season but I guess young people are hard headed.

With Smart likely out I wouldn't be surprised to see someone like Nader get a start, keeping Rozier in his bench rotation role.  Either that or a second big like Theis starting.  Keep Baynes and Rozier anchoring the second unit, which is pretty thin right now.
