The Celtics regroup looking to find ways to slow Joel Embiid after he scored 42 points on Wednesday to beat Boston in one of his signature performances this year. Brad Stevens knows Embiid will hurt them, but that became too much.

He’s still limited, but available in his return from COVID. Jayson Tatum will miss another game 13 days removed from his COVID diagnosis.
