Wednesday night, the Boston Celtics are in the City of Brotherly Love for a rematch with the Philadelphia 76ers.
The C’s suffered a 106-103 defeat in the first meeting between these two rivals this season, a matchup that took place last Wednesday at Wells Fargo Center.
That was Boston’s second-straight defeat, with both contests, the other being a 114-109 overtime loss to the Timberwolves, happening away from TD Garden.
But the Celtics bounced back upon returning home, earning three-straight wins. They most recently beat the New York Knicks 114-98 on Monday night, improving to 8-2.

Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum (0), center Kristaps Porzingis (8) and guard Jaylen Brown (7) react after a play against the New York Knicks at TD Garden.
As they ready to face the Sixers again, who at 8-1 are the only team in the East with a better record than them, they might be without Kristaps Porzingis.
The seven-foot-three center’s name popped up on Boston’s injury report on Tuesday. The former All-Star is considered questionable for Wednesday’s tilt due to a right knee contusion.
Porzingis registered a game-high 29 points, grabbed six rebounds, and dished out three assists in last week’s matchup vs. Philadelphia.
The only other player listed on the Celtics’ injury report is center Neemias Queta. In a positive development, after missing the team’s last eight games due to right foot injury management, he’s also considered questionable for this contest.
Round 2 between the Celtics and 76ers on Wednesday night will tip-off at 7:30 EST. Inside The Celtics will have content related to the matchup before, during, and afterward. Follow @BobbyKrivitsky on Twitter for updates and analysis from pregame to post.
