Live Blog: Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers

The Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers have a lot in common so far this season.

They both are gritty east coast teams. They both are led by great point guards who love to pass (Jrue Holiday is second to Rajon Rondo in the Eastern Conference assist leader race).

But more importantly, they both have aspirations of going deep into the playoffs.

This weekend the Atlantic Division foes have a two-game weekend series to see who is going to take the lead in chasing down the Big Apple teams in the Atlantic Division...

Right now, Philly goes into the second game up one after Evan Turner did just enough to over shadow Rajon Rondo's triple double and beat the Celtics in OT Friday night.

Final score: Philadelphia 76ers 95, Boston Celtics 94.
