Celtics-76ers Game Flexed By ESPN In Favor Of Bulls-Warriors

Boston and Philadelphia now plays at 7 p.m. ET


Jan 7, 2022

Insulting or warranted?

The Boston Celtics matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers on Jan. 14 has been flexed off national television.

ESPN instead will televise the Golden State Warriors-Chicago Bulls game in the primetime 7:30 p.m. ET slot. Boston’s tilt gets changed to 7 p.m. ET.

The NBA made the changes Friday evening, one day after the Celtics fell to 11th in the Eastern Conference and a 18-21 record following a comeback win by the New York Knicks.

The Bulls sit first in the East, so with the Celtics struggling, pivoting to that game featuring Chicago up against Steph Curry is a no-brainer for ESPN.
