Twitter reacts to ugly start to Sixers-Celtics game

The NBA considers this to be a renewed rivalry because it scheduled the Sixers to play the Celtics at the Garden on opening night Tuesday on TNT and they'll meet again here on Christmas Day on ABC. "I think everybody's adrenaline was pumping".

Warriors 108, Celtics 100: Stephen Curry had 32 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, Kevin Durant added 27 points, eight rebounds and six assists, and the Golden State Warriors opened their quest for a three-peat by holding off the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-100 on Tuesday night in Oakland.

Hayward has made no secret about wanting to get back on the floor and play, but he understands how important it is for both himself and the Celtics not to rush back into playing major minutes too soon.

Boston began the third quarter with 14-5 run before Philadelphia ran off 10 consecutive points to climb back within 61-57, but another Celtics surge lifted the hosts ahead 77-66 entering the fourth quarter.

Off-the-record (and occasionally on it), every team that does the NBA's annual preseason trip to China complains when they get back about how it throws them off for weeks into the regular season. "I don't know our record against them". The Sixers also committed 11 first-half turnovers that led to 10 Celtics' points.

Both contributed in other ways as Irving had seven assists and Hayward had four steals, but it was Boston's depth that was the real star of the show. National Basketball Association owners love the idea of going (and expanding their franchise brand in that massive market) until they do it once and see the impact on their team when the games matter.

Last season, the Celtics crashed out in the Eastern Conference Finals to Irving's old team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It may take some time for Brad Stevens' squad to perfectly fit all the pieces together, but the Celtics can still keep winning in the interim off the richness of their talent alone.

He took a return catch to remove Azhar Ali on 15 and then dismissed Haris Sohail, Asad Shafiq, and Babar Azam all without scoring. Afer the Tests both the teams will play a series of three Twenty20 worldwide with the first in Abu Dhabi on October 24.

Boston got some distance in the second half thanks largely to its bench, which outscored its Philadelphia counterparts 44-26.

We can talk about that in June, though.

The biggest difference in the Sixers this season could be Markelle Fultz, the No. 1 pick in the 2018 draft who missed most of last season with a shoulder injury.
