The National Basketball Association (NBA) Philadelphia 76ers extended their winning streak to six games with a victory over the defending champion Boston Celtics .The Sixers were led by Joel Embiid (27 points, 10 rebounds) and Tyreese Maxey (25 points, 9 rebounds) to defeat Boston 106-103 in the 2023-2024 regular season at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Monday (Feb. 9).At 6-1, Philadelphia remained in first place in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia’s only loss came in the first game of the season against the Milwaukee Bucks. Philadelphia and Boston met in the Eastern Conference semifinals last season, when the Celtics took a 3-2 series lead before dropping Games 6 and 7 to fall short of advancing to the finals. Since then, head coach Doc Rivers has been fired and franchise player James Harden demanded a trade and joined the Los Angeles Clippers .There were many changes in Philadelphia, but the one constant was center Embiid .A close game tilted in Philadelphia’s favor when Embiid scored 13 points in the third quarter alone. Leading 81-71 entering the fourth quarter, Philadelphia held off a late Boston rally to win by three points.
Boston was led by Kristaps Porzingis (29 points) but has lost two straight in recent games. The Los Angeles Clippers, who were even considered favorites to win the title with the addition of Harden, lost 93-100 on the road to the Brooklyn Nets. Paul George scored 24 points and Kawhi Leonard added 17 to lead the Clippers’ offense, but Harden didn’t have an explosive game, scoring just 12 points .The Clippers have lost all four of their road games this season .Milwaukee defeated the Detroit Pistons 120-118 despite having star power forward Yannis Adetokunbo ejected for a technical foul. Adetokunbo, who picked up one technical foul in the second quarter, left the court after picking up a second technical foul for taunting an opposing defender after a dunk with nine minutes to go in the third quarter. By then, Adetokunbo had scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds. After Adetokunbo’s ejection, Milwaukee ended the third quarter trailing 90-95. Milwaukee made a furious comeback in the fourth quarter, getting back-to-back baskets from Damian Lillard and Brook Lopez to make it 119-115 with 42 seconds left. Lopez then blocked a driving hook shot by Cade Cunningham with 12 seconds left to preserve the win at 119-118.Washington 132-116 CharlotteIndiana 134-118 Utah Philadelphia 106-103 BostonBrooklyn 100-93 LA Clippers New York 126-105 San Antonio Houston 128-94 무료슬롯게임 LA Lakers Minnesota 122-101 New Orleans Oklahoma City 128-120 Cleveland Toronto 127-116 Dallas
