BOSTON — There’s a lot of ingredients needed to cook up a good rivalry. Celtics vs 76ers has it all.

Two teams that are on the rise with passionate fan bases, and just enough “ooh I don’t like that guy” sprinkled in. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons proved great foils for the Celtics. Which isn’t to say the C’s don’t have their share of unlikeable in your face would be villains as well (Marcus Morris, Marcus Smart.)

Both teams figure to be at the top of the conference for years to come and there’s equal parts dislike and respect mixed in.

Chill and serve.
