Celtics Drop Their Second Straight, Fall 106-103 in Philadelphia

Boston battled back from a 14-point deficit with under 2 minutes to play, but Kristaps Porzingis' game-tying 3-point attempt came up just short as the Celtics fell 106-103 to the 76ers. The C's showed some grit to get back in it late, but the hole they dug themselves in the first 46 minutes of the game was too much to overcome.
Philadelphia was led by league MVP Joel Embiid (27 PTS, 10 REB) as well as Tyrese Maxey (25 PTS, 9 REB), with Maxey pouring in 11 of his 25 in the final period. Boston got a great game from Kristaps Porzingis (29 PTS, 6 REB), but with no one else eclipsing the 20-point mark, it wasn't enough.
Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown just weren't good enough tonight. When your two best players combine for 27 points on 27 shots, that's a losing recipe. Pair that with another poor showing from the bench, other than Sam Hauser, and you lose a game you probably shouldn't. 

With that being said, it's a long season and nights like these will happen. Boston will be back in action Friday night at home against the Brooklyn Nets.
