PHILADELPHIA: LAST SEASON: 51-31, lost in Eastern Conference semis
COACH: Brett Brown (seventh season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: C Joel Embiid (27.5 ppg, 13.6 rpg), F Tobias Harris (18.2 ppg), F Al Horford (13.6), G Josh Richardson (16 ppg), G Ben Simmons (16.9 ppg, 7.7 apg).
KEY LOSSES: G JJ Redick, G Jimmy Butler
KEY ADDITIONS: G Josh Richardson, F Al Horford, F Matisse Thybulle
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The 76ers will go as far as Simmons and Embiid will take them. Both All-Stars are locked in for years with long-term deals and enter the season as serious MVP candidates. But if even one goes down with a serious injury, the Sixers will be in trouble. Embiid has never played more than 64 games in a season and the Sixers are serious about trying to limit his workload even more during the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs.
OUTLOOK: From tanking to title contention, the Sixers believe they are good enough to win the Eastern Conference, and make a run at an NBA championship. The Sixers were knocked out of the Eastern Conference semifinals for the second straight season but believed signing Horford away from fellow contender Boston can help push them over the top.
COACH: Brad Stevens (seventh season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kemba Walker (25.6 ppg), G Gordon Hayward (11.5), F Jaylen Brown. (13.0), F Jayson Tatum (15.7), C Enes Kanter (13.7)
KEY LOSSES: G Kyrie Irving, F/C Al Horford, F Marcus Morris, G Terry Rozier.
KEY ADDITIONS: Walker, Kanter, G Romeo Langford, F Grant Williams, G Carsen Edwards.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: It starts with Walker, who jumped at the chance in free agency to join a perennial playoff team. Following Kyrie Irving's departure to Brooklyn, it will also give Walker the opportunity to do what Irving couldn't: lead the Celtics to an NBA Finals. He'll need help, though. And that will again put the spotlight on youngsters Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum. Both took small steps backward last season as infighting and chemistry issues plagued the team. Now, both will have key roles, much like they did two seasons ago when Irving missed the playoffs and they helped get the team to the Eastern Conference finals. It's an especially big year for Brown. The Celtics have until Oct. 21 to decide whether to extend his contract for another season or let him become a restricted free agent next summer.
OUTLOOK: The Celtics are going to have to tweak their style of play a little without Irving or Horford. Irving was their chief scorer and Horford played a huge role facilitating offense in the half court as well as on defense. Kanter is a big man that can run, which should fit in nicely with the up-tempo style this athletic roster is built for. Whether this team is ultimately able to be a threat to win the East will depend on how well Walker leads and if the starting unit gets enough support from its youthful group of reserves.
Celtics put perfect home record on line vs. Sixers

The Boston Celtics will look to improve to 11-0 at home when they face the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night.

Boston is one of three NBA teams still undefeated at home, a list that includes the 76ers (13-0), who are 5-7 on the road, however. The Miami Heat are 11-0 at home.

Philadelphia hosted the Celtics in both teams' season opener on Oct. 23, with the Sixers winning 107-93.

In that game, point guard Kemba Walker was held to 12 points on 4-for-18 shooting in his Boston debut. Walker has turned things around since then, and he is coming off a season-high, 44-point outing in a 122-117 road loss to the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.

"He gave us a chance to be in the game," coach Brad Stevens said. "Kemba really showed up and played great."

Walker had a chance to tie the score at 120 with a 3-point try with 4.2 seconds remaining, but instead he airballed it, and Boston's four-game winning streak ended. The Celtics fell for just the second time in their past eight games.

Boston blew a 10-point lead over Indiana in the fourth quarter, during which Gordon Hayward exited following a palm to the nose by the Pacers' Doug McDermott.

"Just got hit in the nose and immediately couldn't really see much," said Hayward, who said he went through concussion testing and would be re-evaluated Thursday morning before his availability for the Philadelphia game is determined. "Felt pretty dizzy."

Hayward returned Monday from a month-long absence following surgery to repair a fracture in his left hand. Meanwhile, Boston has played its past two games without guard and team leader Marcus Smart, who is dealing with an eye infection and is day-to-day.

The 76ers enter having won three straight and seven of eight. Philadelphia was last on the floor Tuesday, when it closed out a 97-92 triumph over the visiting Denver Nuggets on two Joel Embiid free throws with 15.3 seconds remaining.

Embiid, who led the team with 22 points, reveled in the moment after he ended the third quarter with an acrobatic basket, taking to center court to shimmy and raise his arms up to the cheering crowd. Such scenes were commonplace early in his career, but the fourth-year big man has said he has tried to cut down on it this season as a sign of maturity.

"When I'm having fun, I dominate," he said. "This year, I don't know, I can probably count on one hand how many times I've done it. ...

"I need to start doing it again, because that's how I'm gonna dominate."

Another Philadelphia big man, Al Horford, should elicit a reaction from the crowd in Boston on Thursday as he returns for the first time since his three seasons with the Celtics. Horford is expected to receive a warm welcome after leading the club to the Eastern Conference finals twice during his tenure.

"It'll be fun," 76ers guard Ben Simmons said. "I love playing in Boston, and Al is returning. It's going to be loud in there, but I'm looking forward to it."
