We always step it up a notch when we play Boston. I expect a good game. Can't be too confident to predict a win though based on how we've looked lately. Nick Young and Roy Ivey probably being out won't help either.
Game 19 (12-7-12): Sixers (10-8) vs. Celtics (10-8)
Here we go. FWIW, Bill Simmons just picked us to win tonight, citing how tough we always play Boston and that he's worried about that. He's a huge Celtics fans too. Not that it means anything, but it's good to have some respect from Celtics fans. They definitely don't forget what happened last year.
"I'm probably pretty boring to watch a game with because I''m all about expected values. I don''t even care if it goes in or not, I'm all about, '‘Should it go in?'' I can live with randomness. I mean, if it''s a close game in the end, yeah, I''m just like anyone else. But I just want us to play the odds all the time."
