Celtics aim for season-series sweep of Sixers

The rivalry between the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers has been one-sided over the last few years.

Boston, which has defeated Philadelphia in 17 of the last 19 regular-season meetings, has won each of the three encounters in 2018-19 and dispatched its Atlantic Division adversary in five games in the Eastern Conference semifinals last spring.

The Celtics will attempt to complete a season sweep of the 76ers on Wednesday night when the teams meet in Philadelphia.
