Sixers Host Celtics, Look To Snap Losing Streak
By Matt Leon
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The 76ers have lost three straight games as they get ready to host the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.
The last game the Sixers won actually came against this Celtics team. One week ago up in Boston, Evan Turner beat the buzzer to give Brett Brown’s squad a 95-94 victory.
Rajon Rondo did not play in that game for the Celtics, but he is expected to be in the line-up tonight. One of the NBA’s top point guards, Rondo is rounding into form after surgery on a torn ACL, and he has played in seven games since his return, but was held out of that Sixers match-up.
Philadelphia brings a 15-34 record into this game, they are in last place in the Atlantic Division. However, they are just one game behind the 16-33 Celtics for fourth.
Last time out on Monday, the 76ers lost in Brooklyn 108-102. Boston has not played since Sunday when they beat Orlando, 96-89.
KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times about the match-up.
