PHILADELPHIA -- The Celtics, after having played two overtime games in the past three days, now have a chance to claim first in the Atlantic Division with a win tonight against the athletic Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics came out of Tuesday night healthy with Brandon Bass saying his sore left foot is good enough to play.

The 76ers will miss forward Thaddeus Young, who is out with an upper respiratory tract infection. Spencer Hawes (left Achilles' strain) is also out.
