NBA Look Ahead; Friday, January 14, 2022; 6:30 pm CT
We’ve got another fun week of NBA action up ahead featuring some of the best teams in the NBA. We’re nearing the All-Star weekend, which means the standings will start to tighten up.
Considering we’re at the mid-way point of the season, winning games is crucial. For some of these teams, a loss could mean losing a spot in the playoffs. Let’s take a look at the schedule.
In the post we will look at Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers.
Boston Celtics Travels to Philadelphia to Face the 76ers
The Boston Celtics are trying to climb their way up in the Eastern Conference. Right now, they have the No.10 spot and are taking on the No.5 Philadelphia Eagles.
Boston has yet to get over the .500 mark this season and has a 19-21 record. The good news for the Celtics is that the 76ers have a few key players in quarantine. This could help the Celtics get on Friday.
The Philadelphia 76ers will likely be without Tyrese Maxey, who is in quarantine. Maxey is the starting point guard and is responsible for the flow of the offense.
Without him, they’ll have to rely on Seth Curry to facilitate the offense. Choosing between these two is going to be tough, but we’ll take the Celtics to win and cover the spread.
