PHI vs BOS Dream11 Match Prediction
The Celts were unable to hold off Joel Embiid in their last match against the Sixers and there is no doubt that he will continue to be threatening in this game as well. Celtics have felt the absence of Jayson Tatum, who provides them clutch scoring, and their fourth-quarter offensive struggles symbolize his absence. The Sixers also expect Seth Curry to be back for this game which can increase the troubles for the Boston Celtics. However, Kemba Walker will look to reassemble the troops, and their coach Brad Stevens will like them to draw inspiration from their rhythm during the first three-quarters of the game. Sixers have the edge again, but if Celtics can contain the threat of Joel Embiid, they do stand a chance here.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics, Key Players:
Joel Embiid
PPG: 26.4
RPG: 11.3
APG: 2.8
BPG: 1.4
SPG: 1.4
Embiid continues to be one of the best big men in the League and his statistics attest to that fact. His presence has helped Sixers attain their current record and he provides great leadership to them by his vocal manners. He had a terrific night against the Celtics, collecting 42 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block. He can easily be considered as a Super-Player pick in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario and his last performance means that he may increase his scoring average further.

Jaylen Brown
PPG: 25.8
RPG: 5.8
APG: 3.8
SPG: 1.5
Jaylen Brown is still only 24 years old and his development has been in the right direction, giving Celtics two young stars in Jayson Tatum and Brown. Since Jayson is unavailable for the game, he will again need to do a lot of lifting for the squad in terms of scoring and hope they can put behind their last game’s fourth-quarter performance. He put up 26 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists in the Celtics’ loss.

Tobias Harris
PPG: 19.3
RPG: 6.8
APG: 3.1
SPG: 1.2
Tobias is the second option on the offense and provides constant scoring at the Forward spot, apart from being a diligent rebound. His value for the Sixers is premium and his defense skillset make him a great player. He lodged 22 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals in the Sixers’ winning effort.
Ben Simmons
PPG: 12.2
RPG: 9.2
APG: 8.0
SPG: 1.5
Ben Simmons has underwhelmed a large number of people who thought he will become the next big thing in the NBA, but that doesn’t mean that he is an average player. Simmons is a major playmaker, can rebound the ball, and is more than a decent defender, but will surely like to increase his scoring output. He is coming off 11 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, and 2 steals outing in the win against the Celtic.

Sleeper Picks:
Shake Milton: Shake Milton has been a terrific contributor for the Sixers and gives them depth at the Guard position through his scoring tools. He is averaging 16.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, and 1.2 SPG. He bagged 16 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist, and 1 steal in the win against the Celtics.
Marcus Smart: Marcus Smart does a lot of things for the Celtics, and is one of the premium defensive guards in the League. He is averaging 13.3 PPG, 5.5 APG, and 1.5 SPG. He registered 25 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and 1 steal in the loss against Philadelphia.D
Danny Green: Green is still a decent 3-point shooter and still plays a lot of minutes because of his defensive skills too. He is averaging 9.7 PPG, 3.8 RPG, and 1.1 SPG. He garnered 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 1 assist in the Sixers’ win

Note
Kemba Walker managed 19 points and 6 assists in the losing effort against Philly.
Tyrese Maxey is averaging 10.6 PPG off the bench for Philly.
Daniel Theis had 23 points and 10 rebounds in the Boston Celtics’ loss.
