Boston Celtics beat Philadelphia 76ers at London's 02 Arena

Boston Celtics beat Philadelphia 76ers at London's 02 Arena

"I want to be an All-Star honestly so if I'm an All-Star, I'd feel like rookie of the year", Simmons said ahead of Philadelphia's clash with the Boston Celtics in London on Thursday.

The NBA stars were out in numbers at last night's Chelsea Arsenal match at Stamford Bridge in London.

Joel Embiid is the top fantasy basketball player for the 76ers with a season average of 45.68 fantasy points per game. Boston's threat to them this year is real. Aron Baynes, Al Horford, and Boston's help defenders played a substantial role as well. Most nights, the stat sheet will read single digits next to Larkin's name, but there are games where his energy can turn the tides. This was not the best shot the 76ers have, but it was a good shot, and the Celtics managed to pull things through despite playing an inconsistent and incomplete game. Tickets for the clash have sold out.

Earlier today, addressing the first PIO-Parliamentarians Conference here, Modi said, "India is changing, India is transforming". Today, bodies like the World Bank, IMF and Moody's are looking at India in a very positive way.

The Celtics will try to extend their win streak to seven games when they face the Philadelphia 76ers at the O2 Arena this Thursday. The game is live on BT Sport or via the NBA League Pass. He plays for a coach who doesn't believe in traditional positions and can have the responsibilities of a player who we'd describe as a 2, 3 or 4.

JJ Reddick and Simmons were on fire early, combining for the 76ers first 16 points as they maintained a five-point advantage midway through the term. The 21-year-old has had a huge impact in his first season.

"I don't think it was the rhythm, I just wasn't finding my spots". Brown praised him for carrying the ball, leading the team and "growing to be a leader".

But London mayor Sadiq Khan - who has clashed with the president in the past - was one of those not buying that excuse. Mr Trump's tweet cancelling his visit sparked a welcome reaction from some politicians.

En route to their seventh straight win, and NBA-best 34th overall this year, the Celtics ratcheted things up in the third quarter, which proved to be the decisive frame. So far this season, the Celtics have beaten the six best teams in the Western Conference (Warriors, Rockets, Spurs, Timberwolves, Thunder, Nuggets) and five of the six best teams in the Eastern Conference excluding themselves (Raptors, Cavaliers, Heat, Bucks, Pistons). My worst fears have not only been assuaged, they've been eliminated. "Brad gives us the freedom to play, and we have a lot of resilient guys". He's being asked to take on a lot, and even outside of clutch situations, he's been not only the most efficient player on the Celtics or one of the most efficient rookies in the league, but one of the most efficient players in the National Basketball Association.

Joel Embiid, 76ers: "I'm excited, it's a chance for me to show the crowd my skills, to show the whole world what I can do".

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience".
