Fultz, Saric set to return Monday against Boston
The Philadelphia 76ers resume their preseason slate on Monday night in Boston against a Celtics team they fell to at home on Friday night, 110-102. Friday gave us some good and some bad on the court, with the good being Ben Simmons continuing to display his phenomenal court vision and Jahlil Okafor looking strong offensively for the second straight night. Jerryd Bayless also had a good game, leading the Sixers with 15 points. The bad was the return of the turnover bug that plagued the Sixers so many times over the last few seasons as the team coughed the ball up 24 times, 10 times more than they did in their preseason opener against Memphis.
It will be interesting to see how Brett Brown rotates the big men tonight with Richaun Holmes nursing a fractured wrist for at least three weeks. While a boost in minutes at the five is expected now for Jahlil Okafor and Amir Johnson, Brett Brown hinted on Sunday that we could even see Dario Saric play center at points.
The Sixers and Boston tip-off at 7:30 p.m. tonight from the TD Garden.
