BOS vs PHI Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Philadelphia 76ers will have their task cut out as they aim to end a 12-game skid when they meet Boston Celtics in the NBA match at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia, in Philadelphia, on Wednesday morning (IST).
Sixers, the new Super Team:
It’s a clash between the giants of the Eastern Conference. One team which has the history books full of songs praising about its illustrious past, while the other is looking for the future, building a “super-team” to go all the way for the ultimate glory.
The Sixers are making all the right noises these days, more so after adding Tobias Harris to their already impressive roster during the winter transfer window. Though the team may not have the experience of winning the title, Philadelphia are no less than Golden State Warriors’ “Super Team”.
At the moment, the Sixers are 4th in the Western Conference. They should qualify for the playoffs, and this time the team is well-equipped to make its first NBA finals appearance since 2001.
It was a disaster for the Greens, so much so that their own fans couldn’t help but jeer at them. After all, a loss, in which the team blow a 28-point lead, is very hard to swallow.
The 17-time NBA champions led by 21 points at the break and extended their advantage to 28 points at the start of the 3rd quarter. But then something happened. The home team went into hibernation and allowed Los Angeles Clippers to claw their way back into the match.
The Celtics scored just 38 points in the last two quarters, against Clippers’ magnificent 70.
The worst thing that Kyrie Irving suffered an injury in the match and will be missing the away clash against Philadelphia 76ers.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Boston Celtics are not a good traveller, having split away record 13-13 so far in the regular seson. That said, Philadelphia 76ers possess one of the best record as hosts. With Kyrie Irving out of the match, we think the Sixers will have too much potency for the visitors.
A win for the home side is our call.
