The division rival Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers are set to renew hostilities on Sunday when they meet at Wells Fargo Center.

ABOUT THE CELTICS (44-25): Boston is trying to track down the Cavaliers for the top spot in the East while holding off the Wizards for No. 2 and needs to avoid overlooking the 76ers with a home game against Washington looming for the start of a six-game homestand on Monday. The Celtics leaned on Jae Crowder for extra offense with Thomas out on Friday and were rewarded with 24 points on 7-of-11 shooting and 12 rebounds in the win. Crowder failed to score in double figures in any of the previous five games and shot 24.4 percent from the field in that span.

ABOUT THE 76ERS (25-43): Philadelphia won two of its last three games and gave the NBA-best Golden State Warriors a stiff challenge in a 106-104 road loss on Tuesday, but the best performance came on Friday. The 76ers outscored the Mavericks by 44 points over the final three quarters and dominated on both ends, holding Dallas to 34.5 percent from the field and building up a 29-5 edge in fast break points. “We had nine guys with two assists or more and ended with 32 assists,” Brown told reporters. “I thought we passed the ball well and everything stemmed from three solid defensive periods to set the stage.”

Oddsmakers currently have the Celtics listed as 5-point favorites versus the 76ers, while the game’s total is sitting at 206½.

The Boston Celtics expect to play at least one more game without All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas as they try to stay in the race for the top spot in the Eastern Conference and are hoping for a similar result after winning without their leader on Friday. The Philadelphia 76ers, who host the Celtics on Sunday, won’t make it easy with the way they’ve been playing of late.

Thomas’ knee swelled up after a hard fall in a win over Minnesota on Wednesday and the team decided to leave him home for the two-game road trip through Brooklyn and Philadelphia. The offense was not the same without Thomas’ 29.2 points on Friday but Boston picked it up on the defensive end and held the Nets to 36.1 percent shooting while pulling out a 98-95 win – its third straight. The 76ers are out of the postseason race but are playing as hard as any team right now and played spoiler on Friday by thrashing the playoff-hopeful Dallas Mavericks 116-74 at home as seven players scored in double figures. “We have been on the other side of these types of things,” Philadelphia coach Brett Brown told reporters after the win. “It is rare for us to be looking at a game like this. I think all of our guys played well.”

Philadelphia won its last outing, a 116-74 result against the Mavericks on March 17. The 76ers covered in that game as a +5-point underdog, while the 190 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Last time out for Boston, they were a 98-95 winner as they battled the Nets on the road. The Celtics failed to cover in the match as a -8.5-point favorite, while 193 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
