This has been a week to forget for Boston sports fans, and it’s not even close to Friday yet. After the NHL’s Bruins had a historic, 65-win regular season, the team saw its year end abruptly in the playoffs at home on Sunday night when the Florida Panthers completed their series upset in overtime of Game 7. Just 24 hours later, Boston’s NBA fans saw their beloved Celtics fall to the Philadelphia 76ers in the opener of a second-round playoff series, even though Sixers big man Joel Embiid was out with a knee injury.

76ers vs Celtics Game 2 Prediction
Despite shooting 74 percent from the field in the first half against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, the Boston Celtics still came up short in Game 1, falling 119-115. Jayson Tatum had 39 points on 4-for-5 shooting from behind the arc, and Jaylen Brown had 23 points on 8-for-10 shooting, but it wasn’t enough to beat the wounded 76ers. With Joel Embiid’s health again in question for Game 2, Philadelphia’s win on Monday night bought the 76ers some breathing room, since they were expected to lose each game Embiid missed. Monday’s Sixers win also put added pressure on the Celtics. James Harden, who scored 45 points, helped the 76ers fight tooth-and-nail with Boston on their way to stealing Game 1. Although many people expect the Celtics to bounce back and dominate Game 2 with Embiid's health still an issue, don’t rule the 76ers out. They will be eager to show that Game 1 was no fluke. Also, let’s face it, even without Embiid, Philadelphia has enough talent on its roster with Harden, Tobias Harris and Tyrese Maxey to keep it competitive and win again in Boston on Wednesday night.
Best NBA Same Game Parlay Picks Today for 76ers vs Celtics - NBA Playoffs Game 2: 3-Leg Parlay Picks (+500)
The Boston Celtics’ Game 1 shooting was phenomenal at 74 percent in the first half and 58 percent for the entire game. While 74 percent isn’t sustainable, without Embiid to defend the paint, the Celtics could have another great shooting night on Wednesday. From Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to James Harden and Tyrese Maxey, both teams were very efficient in Game 1 and that efficiency will continue in Game 2. While we’re not going to go for the full total, we’re going to take an adjusted total at a lower number.
Leg-1 SGP Pick: Over 209.5 (-230)
James Harden Scoring
James Harden exceeded 40 points for the first time in nearly two years in Game 1. The last time he broke 40 was back on May 28, 2021, also against the Celtics. With Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid doubtful for Game 2, expect Harden to have another big scoring night on Wednesday. No one is more eager to get a championship ring than Harden, who shot 17-for-30 from the field in Monday’s Game 1 and hit seven threes as part of his 45-point outburst. Don’t expect Harden to cool off in Game 2, because that’s not going to happen. The fact that there is still so much value for Harden to get 30 points in Game 2 is quite disrespectful of his talent.
Leg-2 SGP Pick: James Harden 30+ Points (+320)
Jayson Tatum Scoring
Part of the reason the Boston Celtics shot so well on Monday night was the performance of Jayson Tatum, who went 14-for-25 from the field and made four of five attempted 3-pointers. With the Celtics now down 1-0 in the series, expect an even better performance from Tatum in Game 2, which is a must-win for Boston. While he could certainly flirt with or eclipse 40 points on Wednesday night, we’re going to play it safe and go with Tatum to get 25 or more points.
Leg-3 SGP Pick: Jayson Tatum 25+ Points (-320)
