8 a.m. ET: As underwhelming as the first two weeks of the season have been for the Celtics, the team can climb above .500 and notch its first three-game winning streak of the season with a victory on Friday against a familiar foe. The rival Philadelphia 76ers come to town with just as many nagging questions as the Celtics. For the Sixers, the primary concern is when they will finally see Andrew Bynum, the All-Star center they picked up in the offseason while shipping franchise player Andre Iguodala to Denver. A knee injury of uncertain severity has kept Bynum from suiting up for his new team, and in the meantime they have been predictably average with two wins in four games. Point guard Jrue Holiday and center Spencer Hawes have played well at times, but for the Sixers to build on last year’s respectable run to the Eastern Conference semifinals, they need Bynum on the court. Join us for updates and analysis from the TD Garden during the game, which tips off at 7:30 p.m.

Comments from the Other Side - Wizards 11/7

As the season heats up, the comments are going to get better. Today's were much better than the previous game. It's always interesting to see which players other fan bases hate the most.
