The NBA schedule was released the other day, and the Sixers games against the Celtics stood out:
Dec. 1: 76ers at Celtics, 7:30 p.m. ET (NBATV)
Dec. 20: 76ers at Celtics, 7:30 p.m. ET (NBATV)
Jan. 14: Celtics at 76ers, 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Feb. 15: Celtics at 76ers, 7:30 p.m. ET (TNT)
The Celtics have since spent a first-round pick to reacquire Al Horford’s contract, if you can believe it!.
New Celtics coach Ime Udoka and veteran wing Josh Richardson also spent that one miserable season with Horford in Philly, and one way or another they will dictate bragging rights in this rivalry again.
