Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart (36) reacts after a basket during the first half of Game 2 against the Philadelphia 76ers at TD Garden.

After dropping Game 1, the Sixers return to action on Thursday night as they look to draw even with the Celtics in their Eastern Conference semifinal series.

The Celtics were without Jaylen Brown, but that didn't seem to hurt them on Monday night – and they're likely to get him back for Game 2. As for the Sixers, they'll need to come away victorious, or they might find themselves in a hole too deep to climb their way out.

Tip is at 8:30 p.m. and you can follow along here during the game for live updates as the action unfolds.
