Sixers: 3 reactions from loss in London to Celtics

The clash will be the eighth regular-season installment of the NBA London Global Game

The clash will be the eighth regular-season installment of the NBA London Global Game

Combined with flirting with a triple-double (16 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists) and 14 points from fellow bench-mobber, Smart and the Celtics rallied for a 91-84 triumph over the visiting. There are nights were Boston needs him to take over, and he does. It's the Celtics' second game in London with a preseason exhibition game against the Timberwolves in 2007.

The Boston Celtics guard, in London for tonight's sell-out game against the Philadelphia 76ers, is one of the NBA's great conundrums because it seems that the worse he shoots the better his team perform.

As the season has gone on, Tatum has only gotten more impressive.

The NBA Global Games' mission is to grow the game overseas, presumably by playing entertaining basketball. In a year that has seen a plethora of rookies perform beyond expectations, it's Tatum alone whose performance is intrinsically sublime when the game is on the line. As his confidence has increased, he has begun to attack the basket with a newfound ferocity. "They come out, and they execute the gameplan", Jaylen Brown said, when asked about the secret to the Celtics' success in defending Embiid.

SpaceX scheduled to test fire Falcon Heavy rocket Thursday
The foggy responses by concerned authorities are fueling the fire to rumors and speculations about Zuma mission being a failure. A day after White's statement, SpaceX president and chief operating officer, Gwynne Shotwell, was asked about Zuma.

LeBron James turned 33 less than two weeks ago and considering his age-defying level of performance this season, retirement is not imminent. There is no doubting that the Celtics needed that extra rest after the brutal stretch in December, but they needed some extra time to really get things going.

Baynes has effectively taken over the role of Amir Johnson, who signed with the Philadelphia 76ers in the offseason.

Lonzo Ball has flashed his talent but some are starting to wonder whether his play will eventually justify the circus that comes with it. He's a master of defending without fouling - going straight up with this hands in the air. Eligibility rules could change by then, with league commissioner Adam Silver saying in June he wanted them amended, although he wasn't sure he wanted to raise or lower the current age requirement of 19. Kyrie has come into Boston and, through a combination of his hard work, his new teammates and his new coaching staff, evolved into a much different player than he was in Cleveland.

The Boston Celtics have erased large deficits on multiple occasions this season, and they were at it again Thursday afternoon in London. Huge defensive plays. The baseline dunk against Brooklyn.

'N. Korea's Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site Shows Significant Tunneling Activity'
The president later added that any discussions with North Korea would be accompanied by unspecified conditions. But it was not clear how his remarks fit with his self-described policy of "maximum pressure" on Pyongyang.

"Just try to make him uncomfortable". On the offensive end, Theis does the little things well - setting screens, rolling to the rim, and knocking down midrange jumpers. Philadelphia shooting 60% from three.

During the Celtics' surprising 22-4 start, the defense was their calling card.

Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson also made an appearance in London with National Basketball Association fever sweeping the nation in recent weeks.

Celtics star Kyrie Irving wants to use the London stage to showcase his appreciation for fans, who recently voted him as the starter for the 2018 NBA All-Star game. They are snapping at Houston's heels in the Southwest, even though they've had to manage Kawhi Leonard's on-court time since his return last month.

Hockey Canada Reveals 2018 Men's Olympic Roster
Despite this unfortunate news, the Olympics are still promising an entertaining tournament both on the women's and men's level. In the absence of stars from the NHL , Team Canada will ice a hockey team long on heart at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

These two have only seen time in garbage minutes.
