London Can't Save Sixers From Another Huge Blown Lead

Share

Boston Celtics big man Al Horford has been dealing with a sore left knee, but it sounds like the All-Star forward will be well enough to play in Thursday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers in London, England. Every team is really hard to play against. Meanwhile, the Sixers are just out of playoff standings at the moment with the 9th seed and a 19-19 (.500) record but they own a four-game winning streak.

By Thursday morning, a "walk-in price" for the cheapest seat to watch the National Basketball Association game at London's O2 arena stood at £487 ($658) including fees on StubHub, with a premium seat in the center of the lower bowl going for a staggering £1,701 including fees ($2,300), and only sold as a set of three. "By the way, if I'm not having fun ..."

Obviously the playoffs are a different story, and winning regular season games will only mean so much.

JJ Redick (10) and Simmons (six) combined to score the Sixers' first 16 points as they jumped out to a seven-point lead. The line, set at four points, doesn't look insurmountable despite the injuries to San Antonio, so I would go with the better team to win and cover on the Handicap market at [1.89]. "We've come back before".

"In the third quarter, we didn't move the ball", said Embiid, in response to being asked what led to being out of rhythm. The league is also aided by the recent emergence of foreign-born star players, like Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Giannis Antetokounmpo, who have catalyzed growth in other countries.

Jaylen Brown paced the Celtics with 21 points. Off the bench, Marcus Morris scored 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds.

Things got testy in the fourth quarter, with Boston's Morris taking exception to a foul from Simmons to spark a brief melee, but the main battle of the night had already been settled in the Celtics' favour. It's good to see that Philly got some OK guys, some tougher guys.

Said Simmons: "It was a strong hit".

However Boston couldn't be stopped and they eventually took the lead in the third courtesy of a Daniel Thies dunk. He also told The Sun that he enjoys it when the fans are fully immersed in game action, saying it "makes (him) sleepy" and adversely affects his play when they are not. On the contrary, they allowed over 98 points just once during their current six-game win streak. But it was never as bad as it looked when the Celtics at one point trailed the Sixers by 22 points, and nine after 24 minutes. Ball, as a potential franchise point guard, is an extremely valuable asset in the National Basketball Association, but could become toxic for others if they've to worry about his father wrecking the team from outside.
