Matisse Thybulle will replace Al Horford in the starting lineup for Game 2 and will be joined by Shake Milton, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid for Wednesday's affair vs. the Celtics.
This appears to be the most prudent move for the Sixers as Thybulle is already one of the team's best wing defenders in his rookie campaign. The Sixers will look to slow down Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown on Wednesday and might have an easier time doing so with Thybulle in the starting group. The Sixers will also benefit from the absence of Gordon Hayward (ankle).
