I mean, Plano, TX is also in the DFW area and it's over twice as big as Cambridg e- I'm pretty sure there are other huge cities. Also Houston has Sugarland/Pearland which are as big as cambridge but they aren't "sibling cities" in the sense you're using.
You can't go by "city limit" populations alone for this. there are sprawl-burbs that have higher populations than Cambridge and but are less of a city. Cambridge has a land area of only 6.43 square miles and a population density of well over 15,000 people per square mile. Forth Worth on the other hand has land area of 292.5 square miles and a population density of 1,827 people per square mile.

Populations for a city-proper hardly tell the whole story. While Cambridge has about 1/7 the population of Ft. Worth, it has that population on about 1/48 the land of Ft. Worth. Cambridge may be smaller, but it's far more of an urban area than Ft. Worth is. It's also directly across the river from Boston and was settled at about the same time.

Cambridge is very much a sibling city of Boston.
