Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid, never one to hide his feelings, has made things easy for the notorious London tabloids this week. Boston came out firing in the third quarter and took its first lead of the game on a Daniel Theis dunk with six minutes remaining in the frame. They went on to win the National Basketball Association title. The radio streaming service did not last long at Yahoo, but Cuban famously went on to purchase the Dallas Mavericks with his profits.

"That's the first time we ever let somebody back in and not done anything about them [making a] push", the rookie point guard said. Every team is really hard to play against. We didn't get stops.

"When you build some buffer around this game in the middle of the season, it requires compressing the schedule in other parts of the season". That was the difference.

76ers: Embiid was the only player on either team to finish with a double-double, adding 10 rebounds to his 15 points. That's 10-for-33 (30.3 percent). I don't trust him to be the man. "But when the fans are cheering, and I'm talking (junk), it's fun", he told The Sun. I know the way for me to have fun and kick someone's [butt] is also talk trash.

"I am enjoying the role I have and doing my job as best as I can". "But I had a dream that I was running onto the soccer field and they were all screaming and chanting my name". "A couple days rest has been good for me". "We've got to try to pick it back up and find it". "I think I wasn't finding my spots". The Celtics had dropped behind San Antonio in opponent scoring, and their opponent average had climbed above 98 points per game. Simmons added 16 points to go with three assists and three turnovers.

Anyway, Brown finished with a team-high 21 points, four rebounds and three steals.

Unrest continues in Tunisia, hundreds arrested
The wave of protests came a day apart from the city of Tale (Kasserine, central western Tunisia ) to nearby Sidi Bouzid. Among those arrested were two men who orchestrated the storming of a police station in the town of Nefza.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens is making sure Jayson Tatum's early-career success is not going to his head. Simmons was called for a foul on the play while Morris received a technical for his actions.

"That would be awesome", said Simmons, who's now just under 50,000 votes off a starting place. "[Shoot], it's all right, I take a lot of cheap shots, too". This Boston team is better due to their defensive versatility. But it's a good shot. "Hopefully that comes true, but I doubt it". I guess he didn't like it.

Boston locals can catch the game on NBCSB while Philadelphia locals can watch the broadcast on NBCSP.

The Celtics kicked off 2018 with a bang, blowing the Cleveland Cavaliers away at home 102-88 as 3-point favorites.

So while the National Football League continues to stage multiple regular-season games each year in London - albeit cutting the number from four to three next season - European basketball fans may have to continue to settle for just one. The Celtics, meanwhile, extended their winning streak to seven games.
