The Boston Celtics are making a late season push to overtake the Philadelphia 76ers for first place in the Atlantic Division after trailing all season long. They have won three consecutive games and are 13-5 since the All-Star break. At 28-22, they own the same record as the Sixers, with the Sixers holding the tiebreaker. Only 16 games remain in the regular season.
On Friday, the Celtics will travel to Minnesota to face Kevin Love and the T'Wolves. The Wolves are 25-27 on the season and 13-12 at home. They've won four of their last 10. This is the one and only time these teams will meet this season.
Following their trip to Minnesota the Celtics will return home to host LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat in a nationally televised game on ABC.
The Sixers face the lowly Wizards Friday before hosting the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.
