The 76ers and Celtics tipped off in Boston on Tuesday night to get the NBA season started.  The Celtics won the game 105-87.

After the game Sixers star Joel Embiid talked about the so-called rivalry, “JJ mentioned it, this is not a rivalry.  I don’t know our record against them but it’s pretty bad.  They always kick our ass.”

True story.  Philly is going to have to pickup a few wins against them, especially in the postseason if they want to call this a rivalry.

The Sixers will likely have to figure out how to beat them if they want to get to The Finals anytime soon.  This Celtics team is built for a run of a few years in the East.
