Greetings from TD Garden

Hello folks, it seems we haven’t been at the TD Garden in weeks, and the Celtics return home to face the Philadelphia 76ers.

 

So let’s get to the particulars.

 

STARTING LINEUPS

PHILADELPHIA

PG Jrue Holiday

SG Andre Iguodala

SF Thaddeus Young

PF Elton Brand

C Samuel Dalembert

 

BOSTON

PG Rajon Rondo

SG Ray Allen

SF Paul Pierce

PF Kevin Garnett

C Kendrick Perkins

 

*Allen Iverson is out with an arthritic knee and a strained shoulder. He should return to action next week but won’t play Saturday against the Los Angeles Clippers.

*Elton Brand did not play in last month’s meeting so it could be interesting how he plays against Garnett. Also, Marreese Speights also didn’t play, so Philadelphia has two beefy power forward it didn’t have three weeks ago.

*Marquis Daniels said he will have a pin removed from his surgically repaired right thumb on Jan. 8 and he hopes to return by the All-Star Break.
