Simmons solid but Sixers blow it in London

13 Enero 2018

"We're considering bringing additional games to Europe", Silver said ahead of Thursday's game between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers at the O2 Arena. Morris, who dropped an efficient 19 points on Philly's head, was issued a technical for his part in the scuffle while Simmons was merely issued a common foul because he had not made contact above the shoulders.

Morata and Bellerin looked cosy together as the Spanish duo joked around with comedian and Arsenal fan Jack Whitehall at one point.

That the Celtics won by double digits, after taking a 17-point lead during the fourth quarter, was pretty remarkable after all the strange stuff they did early.

Led by coach Brett Brown, it has been a difficult period for 76ers fans, as the team posted losing records for the past five seasons, including only winning 10 games in 2015-16.

"Youth and versatility", Tatum said of what he and Brown bring to the table as a tandem.

Toronto's Josh Donaldson, Baltimore's Manny Machado, Washington's Anthony Rendon and the Chicago Cubs' Kris Bryant were among the more than 170 players headed to the exchange. James scored 26 points in this loss and Isaiah Thomas missed his first 11 shots.

That was the last bit of drama on the night.

The 2018 NBA London game featured the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics battling it out for the third time this regular season. Both teams have playoff aspirations thanks to their marquee players, yet a surprisingly unheralded name threatened to steal the headlines when the game got underway.

Philadelphia's fledgling stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons showed flashes of what will be a dazzingly bright future - but the young guns just couldn't keep up with such a complete team as the Celtics.

Perhaps it was the time difference, jet leg or the unfamiliar days off they'd had in preparation for this game, but the usually unflappable Celtics look rattled. "Right now it's just tough to see the light at the end of the tunnel but it is there".

LONDON - The NFL is heading to a new destination in London, and the first match-up at English Premier League club Tottenham will be the Oakland Raiders against the Seattle Seahawks in October. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban says defensive tackle Da'Ron Payne is also entering the draft, and wide receiver Calvin Ridley already had announced his departure.

Brown stopped the rot for Boston with a three from the corner, turning to blow a kiss to the Philly bench as he skipped back, and it proved a turning point.

Not only are the Celtics getting better, they also seem to be getting younger. Hopefully I don't have to get fined for that.

LeBron James and the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers absorbed their most lopsided loss of the season Thursday night when they were routed by the Toronto Raptors, 133-99.

The Celtics clearly started this game flat and out of rhythm.
