With the Philadelphia 76ers coming down the stretch hot and cold, depending on which night you watch them, they will probably end up with the sixth or seventh seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
As of today, the Sixers stand in sixth and two games ahead of the New York Knicks. New York has been in a freefall recently and have won just three games in their last 10.
Both the Sixers and the Knicks have the ability to get hot and make a run before season's end. If the Knicks were to make their run and get past the Sixers, Philly would then likely play Boston in the first round.
The Boston Celtics boast a pretty tough matchup for any team. However, the young Sixers have played them very well this season. They are 1-2 against the Celtics. Their loses were by one and four points.
If the Celtics take Philly lightly, they may be in for an early exit.
Here's how the Sixers matchup with Boston, position by position.
