    When the Philadelphia 76ers clash with the Boston Celtics, sparks are sure to fly. The Celtics notched their 46th win in a thrilling matchup on Tuesday night against a fired-up Philly squad.

    Philly came out swinging early, silencing the eager TD Garden crowd with sharp shooting from Buddy Hield and aggressive drives led by Tobias Harris. However, Boston’s dynamic duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown quickly turned the tide with an explosive scoring run, fueled by stellar defensive plays from Derrick White.

Brown continued his offensive onslaught while Porzingis showcased his rim-rocking abilities as they extended their lead over a resilient Sixers team.
