PHI VS BOS DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction 1st May – Fantasy Team News
Boston Celtics vs Philadelphia 76ers
NBA Post Season
This is the first game of Eastern Conference Semifinal between Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers
PHI VS BOS DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The first round of NBA playoffs concluded and now we have only four teams remaining in the semi-finals vying for the Eastern conference kingship. After some minor hiccups in the last round, normality resumed in the Eastern conference as the top four teams won their respective series. In this conference, we have this mouthwatering matchup between Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers which has the potential to be the tie of this round.
The Greens are at home in the first game and that counts for something for TD Garden side as they didn’t lose a single home game against Milwaukee Bucks in the first round. The series went to the 7th and the final game after both Boston and Milwaukee won their respective home games. The final game produced the result many were expecting. The home team won 112-96 with Celtics’ holy-trinity Jayson Tatum, Al Horford, and Terry Rozier all scoring in the 20s.
However, the win was marred by an unlucky injury to Guard Jaylen Brown who hobbled off the court due to a muscle injury. He is a doubt for the first game and it’s a big loss for Brad Stevens’ side considering Brown is the 2nd most offensive player in Boston’s ranks in the postseason.
Philadelphia 76ers, on the other hand, is the surprise package of this NBA season. They ripped the Mickey out of every NBA prediction by finishing 3rd in Eastern Conference and would certainly take the title of ‘most improved team in NBA’ if there was any such prize.
Philadelphia won an impressive 52 games in the regular season, and they achieved this feat without two of their best players Joel Embiid and JJ Redick, who missed their large chunk of games during the business end of the regular season.
They are also the most in-form team in NBA coming into this match. In fact, they have lost just one game in the last 21 matches, making Boston Celtics’ ambitions of winning the Eastern Conference even more harder.

PHI VS BOS DREAM11 TEAM NEWS: Injury and Game Time Decision
If Boston Celtics do lose this series against the most unpredictable and the in-form side in NBA, Brad Stevens could be forgiven for failing to take the Greens to those soaring heights they were so accustomed in the 80s, considering he was without the services of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.
These two aforementioned players are injured and won’t be playing in this match, so choose your PHI vs BOS Dream11 team wisely.
Daniel Theis (Knee Injury) continues to be out due to his injury as well, while Jaylen Brown is a big doubt for this game due to a muscle injury.
Nothing to show here in terms of Big-Name players, if you are a Philadelphia fan. However, some fringe players like J Bayless, D Jackson, F Korkmaz and T Luwawu-Cabarrot have been listed under Game-Time decisions.
