Until the 1st trimester

The Philadelphia 76ers were expected to win this one, and so far, that’s exactly how it’s going. They are way ahead after one quarter with a 32-14 lead over the Boston Celtics.

Center Joel Embiid has led the way so far for the 76ers, as he has eight points and four assists in addition to four rebounds. Boston relied on power forward Al Horford, who has five points, and center Robert Williams III, who has zero points with four boards and a block.

That’s tied for the fewest points Boston has yet had this season at the start of the second quarter.
