Turnovers, brutal first quarter cost C’s

Celtics-76ers takeaways: Turnovers, brutal first quarter cost C’s originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Celtics had their three-game win streak snapped by the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night as they were dominated, 111-99.

A nightmare first quarter set the tone for what would end up being one of the sloppier games the C’s have played all season. Carelessness with the basketball and lackluster performances from All-Stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown ultimately led to Boston’s demise.

Brown led the C’s with 21 points while Tatum tallied 20 and Payton Pritchard contributed 17 off the bench. Joel Embiid had a game-high 25 points for the Sixers to go along with 13 rebounds. Tyrese Maxey added 23 points of his own.
