While the 76ers made a comeback effort in the fourth quarter, outscoring Milwaukee 30-16, it wasn’t enough to overcome a 17-point deficit at halftime that ultimately doomed the team. Philadelphia also gave up 27 points on 8-of-15 shooting to Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has again been enjoying a standout campaign as he is averaging 28. 5 points, 11. 3 rebounds and 6. 0 assists per game so far. When on the court, Joel Embiid has looked the part of an offensive nightmare for teams, but he has missed 18 of the team’s games this season. In his 41 games played, he’s averaging 30 points and 11.
It wasn’t a kind offseason to the Celtics with the season-long suspension of head coach Ime Udoka. But while that might be hard to overcome, this is still an extremely talented team that is led by their young stars with Tatum and Brown but also has terrific role players such as Al Horford, Grant Williams, Marcus Smart and more to help shoulder the load. This should be a great matchup to start the 2022-23 season with and we have you covered with how you can watch on Tuesday night.
