Joel Embiid puts up 15/10/5 line for 76ers in London

So, if they limit everyone else, they certainly have a chance as evident in the team’s first two appearances.

The Lakers have their first three-game winning streak of the season after Brandon Ingram scored 26 points in a 93-81 decision over the Spurs. There were plenty of “Trust the Process” chants from Sixers fans, and just as many “Let’s go, Celtics” chants from Boston fans.

Kyrie Irving shoots over Dario Saric. The key to this season’s playoff prospects is Embiid.

Players from France, Germany, Croatia, Turkey, Egypt, Australia, the United States, the Dominican Republic and Cameroon featured on court and the nationalities in the crowd reflected this cosmopolitan mix.

The game will mark the third of four regular season match-ups between the two Eastern Conference teams.

Injury Report: Celtics center Al Horford missed the last game with knee soreness, but is expected to play today. But whenever he needs an ear to lend or that extra push, I’m there. I want to play. They had given up 124 points in losing to Portland, 124 while getting beaten by Toronto, 124 in a win over Dallas and 125 in a loss to Indiana.

The inexperience often shows but fifth-year coach Brett Brown’s unrelenting optimism and encouragement has helped players develop on the fly.

Are you excited to be in London? It makes us connect so much deeper with our fans, wherever they are around the world. “We just need to correct whatever has been careless the whole season and that’s turnovers and fouling a lot”.

The 76ers are on the opposite side of the spectrum as the Celtics ranking 6th in the National Basketball Association in offense with 108.6 points per game and 22nd in defense allowing 107.9 points per game. His ability to attack, pass and post up continues to evolve.

“A little frustration kicked in, I think, and he just took, ya know, a cheap shot”, Morris said, courtesy MassLive’s Jay King. “I will say that we’re so different than the National Football League in a sport that plays once a week”.

Philadelphia (19-20) was led offensively by JJ Redick, who paced five double-digit scorers with 22 points to go along with seven rebounds and three assists. Suddenly Boston looked like themselves again, and while the Sixers are lauded for their wealth of young talent, it was largely 21-year-old Brown and 19-year-old Jayson Tatum who dragged them back into the game.

“I’ve never been. Playing the Celtics, obviously a great team, so I can’t wait”. Markelle Fultz has been out with a shoulder imbalance and it is unkown if he will return against the Celtics.

Colangelo traded to the top of the draft to snag Fultz’s dynamic combo guard abilities.

The game marked the National Basketball Association’s eighth instalment of their visit to London.

Meanwhile, Embiid is averaging 23.8 points, 10.9 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game, shooting 48.9 percent from the floor.

He is the heart of why Philadelphia is the NBA’s No. 1 rebounding team and the reason why the offense can click. The NBA’s top-rated defense has held its past three opponents to under 90 points.

“It’s all about sharing the ball”, Embiid said. “From day one we’ve always had that next man up mentality and we’ve kept it going”. We play many games around the world and we’re very, very happy with our one game so far.
