Celtics erase 22-point deficit to beat 76ers in London

13 January 2018

This will be the eighth time in National Basketball Association history that a regular season game has been played at the O2 Arena in England.

Peruse through Simmons' Instagram story, and you'll see the shenanigans he and his team are getting up to in the city, but, come game time, expect the 21-year-old to think about both bolstering his case to be an NBA All Star, as well as taking in the experience.

While the Celtics have exceeded expectations after losing free-agency acquisition Gordon Hayward to a horrific ankle injury on the opening night of the season, the 76ers have struggled to maintain consistency. Boston has allowed just 85.7 points per game over its last three games, solidifying its position as the best defensive team in the National Basketball Association allowing a league-low 97.6 points per game.

Irving is constantly giving Tatum advice and the rookie is extremely grateful according to a story by Celtics Wire reporter Jared Weiss.

Warriors' Stephen Curry to sit out vs Bucks
The primary reason is that, at a young age, Durant was displaying the ability to score at will in a variety of ways. The Warriors swept the two-game series last season and have won seven of the last eight meetings overall.

From Irving (4-for-14) and Horford (1-for-5) to a seldom-shooting Tatum (1-for-3) and an overall 38.9 percent shooting performance, little of it was bearable. He is another candidate for that Rookie of the Year award, even though a lot of people sleep on his production because he plays on a top team. Blake Griffin had 18 points, 12 rebounds and six assists after missing the Clippers' previous two games with a concussion.

Though they sit squarely on.500, the trends are pointing upward for the 76ers if Embiid can stay healthy.

The issue for the teams, he said, and the reason why he appreciates them coming is that there are "a certain number of days in the schedule, and when you build some buffer around this game in the middle of the season, it requires compressing the schedule in other parts of the season". Boston -2.5 looks a reasonable play. They can see some of the culture and there are many opportunities in London.

LeBron James turned 33 less than two weeks ago, but says retirement is not imminent.

The Jaguars picked up their fifth-year option in Bortles' rookie contract, at a salary of more than $19 million, for next season. So far this season, the coldest game the Jags have played in was at Nashville playing the Tennessee Titans on December 31.

As it is, Cleveland are too good to slip down the conference with James in the lineup, but too complacent to trust as a betting proposition generally. It's a vital game for them to maintain their momentum. "Before this season, 142 teams since the advent of the shot clock played with a weighted average age younger than 25, and they were generally very bad, finishing with an average.365 winning percentage, which translates to a 30-52 record". He trailed Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan and Victor Oladipo, but was ahead of guys like John Wall, Kyle Lowry and Bradley Beal.

The fight began in the third quarter of the Heat's 90-89 victory over the Raptors on Tuesday night in Toronto. The league will be returning to London for the first time since January 14, 2016, when the Toronto Raptors beat the Orlando Magic 106-103 in an overtime game. "It looks like he's having a speedy recovery", said Smart.

The Lakers do not need to plan for the playoffs.
