  • Joel Embiid: Celtics vs Sixers Isn’t A Rivalry, “They Always Kick Our Ass”

The Celtics get the 2018/19 season underway this evening when they host the 76ers in a mouthwatering Eastern Conference clash.

Gordon Hayward was elated to put "dark memories and dark times" behind him and make his first appearance in more than a year as the Celtics beat the 76ers.

There are still 81 games to go, but barring injury, last night was a preview of the rest of the season. Plus he's been dealing with some back soreness.

"I thought against Boston I was really passive at times", Embiid said. "When you finally get the results you've been working hard for, it's just that much better". Meanwhile, Joel Embiid had a team-high 30 points on 9-for-14 shooting to go with 12 rebounds and four blocks.

The suspected case in Douglas County is still under investigation and confirmation of the diagnosis could take up the three weeks. Additional symptoms include facial drooping or weakness, difficulty moving the eyes, difficulty swallowing and slurred speech.

Based on what we've seen from Tatum thus far, the sky's the limit. I just think it is unfair for fans to expect him to immediately be at 100 percent as soon as he steps on the floor.

The Celtics had five players in double figures - Hayward, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Morris and Terry Rozier - while none of their nine rotation players logged more than 30 minutes.

Aron Baynes re-signs with the Celtics for one year, plus a player option for a second year. Gordon Hayward completed his first official game for the Celtics and looked okay doing it.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens believes a heated Celtics-Sixers rivalry is good for the National Basketball Association. "Simple as that", Simmons told reporters ahead of game two of the season. The Sixers were the most careless, committing 11 first-half turnovers that led to 10 Celtics points.

No team ever likes to lose their first game of the year, but the good news for Philadelphia is with a favorable matchup scheduled for Thursday against the Chicago Bulls, there's a good chance they will earn their first win then. TNT and other cable channels are available in most markets via Hulu Live TV so you will be able to catch the simulcast and watch tonight's Sixers Celtics game without cable.

Damian Jones and Kevon Looney didn't just hold their own, they actually turned heads with how well the centre combo played.

It was Irving's lowest in a game since joining the Celtics, but it does exclude the game last October when he played just two minutes. When he starts the motion to give the ball to LaVine, Ben Simmons is positioned in front of LaVine to force a tougher pass, as rookie Landry Shamet gambles over the backside to get the steal. However, how valuable is he with 2017 No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz receiving extended action?

The Sixers showed numerous same weaknesses - primarily a lack of perimeter shooting - as they did in last season's playoff loss to the Celtics.
