Celtics vs. 76ers 2018 odds: Boston the betting favorite in London matchup

Though the 76ers are mostly comprised of National Basketball Association youth, they did gain notable playoff veterans J.J. Redick and Amir Johnson this season in addition to playoff tested Jerryd Bayless, Trevor Booker, James Michael McAdoo, Richaun Holmes, and Justin Anderson.

As they repeated the first half of that feat with a comeback victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night, the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics provided more evidence that they can emulate that 2007-08 squad.

The Premier League icons were front row to see the Boston Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers 114-103 in the eighth regular season National Basketball Association game in London.

His coach Brett Brown said: "I think he's been a great teammate, his work rate is fantastic and continues to improve as he invests time in it".

"We have to be dialled in at every moment".

The Philadelphia 76ers are the league's no. 1 rebounding team this season, averaging 47.8 rebounds per game to the Celtics' 44.5 rebounds per game (11th in the league).

With just over six minutes left in the second quarter, Boston outscored its opponent 86-54 for the rest of the game.

What better way to grow the game overseas than to humiliate a fan in front of a sold-out O2 Arena? Isaiah Thomas and Tristan Thompson have returned from injury, but the team as a whole has not delivered as consistently as a team with LeBron James might.

Fans have flooded into the British capital from across Europe, excited at the prospect of the bright young sides going head to head.

numberFire's models projected Irving for 38.7 FanDuel points and he came away with 32.7 on Thursday.

The Sixers built a 22-point lead midway through the second quarter, and as things were starting to get ugly, Jaylen Brown blew a kiss to the Sixers bench after hitting a three-pointer. The 8.3-point gap between the Celtics and Timberwolves is the same as the difference between the Timberwolves and the 19th-ranked Utah Jazz. These are valid. I trust Jayson Tatum.

The Celtics, bolstered by the combined shooting of Tatum, Irving and Morris in the third, carried an 85-79 lead into the fourth quarter.

Despite having lost all three games to the Celtics this season, Embiid is confident the 76ers could compete in a seven-game series. "Demand excellence and go and put on a show", said Irving, who joined the Celtics a year ago from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"We just need to correct whatever has been careless the whole season and that's turnovers and fouling a lot".

Joel Embiid had 15 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one blocks in a losing effort vs. the Celtics, finishing 6-of-17 from the field with one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.
