Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics: How to watch, broadcast, lineups (Game 1)

The Boston Celtics face their Atlantic Division rival Philadelphia 76ers at TD Garden for Game 1 of their 2023 Eastern Conference Playoffs series this Monday, May 1 evening. The Sixers will likely be without one of their most important players as Joel Embiid recovers from a sprained knee, but will that cause the Celtics to take Philly too lightly?

If you happen to be looking for a way to watch the on-court action live on cable television or a local or national online streaming service, keep reading while we get you up to speed on everything else you need to know about the game.

Let’s begin with the players available to play.

Injuries of note

Neither team had tendered their injury report at the time of writing.

However, for Boston, Danilo Gallinari (ACL) sat out the Celtics’ last game, and Joel Embiid (knee) is widely expected to miss his second consecutive playoff game for the 76ers.
