The Philadelphia 76ers won the third game against the Celtics this season and swept the regular season series against their arch-rivals.

The Sixers reach the three wins mark against Brad Steven’s team, which is the same amount of victories they had in the last three seasons against the Celtics.

Namely, they had a 3-9 record and -4.6 points differential, while this year they are in a +10.3 in three contests against the Boston Celtics.

Furthermore, they didn’t have Joel Embiid at their disposal last night, with Al Horford getting “big” minutes in the center position, scoring 17 points with eight rebounds and six assists.

Philadelphia is at 25-14, being the fifth best team in the Eastern Conference record-wise.
