Sixers, Celtics To Face-Off On Christmas
The NBA released its Christmas Day slate for the upcoming 2018-19 season and for the second straight year, the Philadelphia 76ers will be featured right as you are scarfing down that holiday feast.
One year after an exciting win in New York against the Knicks, the Sixers will play the Boston Celtics on Christmas day at 5:30 p.m on ABC. Although there's no location mentioned yet, it will likely be in Boston due to Disney on Ice's 2:00 p.m. show at the Wells Fargo Center
Last season on Christmas against the Knicks, the Sixers earned a hard-fought 105-98 victory to snap a five-game losing streak. Joel Embiid tallied 25 points and 16 boards while JJ Redick had 24 points.
The NBA plans to announce their Opening Week slate of games at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
