London game an item on Irving's bucket list

Boston Celtics defense ranks number one against NBA's best offenses

Guerschonn Yabusele, power forward for the Boston Celtics, said: "I like London, I was here for a bit when I was young and I have some family over here too".

Two of the most well-known basketball teams in the NBA visited Stamford Bridge on Wednesday to see Chelsea take on Arsenal.

Joel Embiid had 16 points, and fellow All-Star hopeful Ben Simmons added 15 for the 76ers. According to Matt Moore of CBS Sports, Boston ranks third in the league in total miles traveled this season, and they got their fair share during the 17 day run in mid-December.

For NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, London stands as a sort of entryway to Europe, people flock from all over the continent to come to the game. The Celtics won the previous two games on October 20 (102-92) and November 30 (108-97).

City, University of London welcomed the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers who are preparing for their NBA London Global Game at the O2 Arena on Thursday 11th January.

BT Sport's Facebook live stream will also be shared on the NBA's Facebook page in the UK.

Myanmar Military Admits to Killing 10 Rohingya Found in Mass Grave
The remains of the victims were found in December in a mass grave outside Inn Din, a village in the Maungdaw Township. The military investigation was led by Lieutenant General Aye Win.

The 76ers, led by the hot hand of JJ Redick raced out into a massive lead - before the men in green began to chip away at that lead. The 21-year-old has had a huge impact in his first season. He's been an excellent spot up shooter and finds a lot of easy baskets around the rim because of the attention drawn by Irving and Al Horford. Brown praised him for carrying the ball, leading the team and "growing to be a leader".

The Celtics - led by free agent acquisition Kyrie Irving - have been the surprise story of the season, recovering from losing star player Gordon Hayward five minutes into the campaign to lead the Eastern Conference with a 33-10 record.

"Boston right now would beat them in a seven-game series". As he has done in the past, Irving also reiterated that the larger point he was trying to make when he said the Earth is flat wasn't really about the Earth or science at all. My worst fears have not only been assuaged, they've been eliminated.

Simmons, meanwhile, is one 76ers player Celtics centre Aron Baynes knows can be a threat.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience". Marcus Morris might have had his best game all season (and had some great quotes about a fourth-quarter incident with Simmons), and Daniel Theis brought his normal impressive energy off the bench. I'm not going to give Boston a full pass - they still played poorly at times during this stretch.

This week has been quite exciting for the Sixers after the team was fortunate enough to travel overseas to be part of the National Basketball Association in London experience with a game against the Boston Celtics.

1983: the year the 76ers won their third NBA Championship (1955, 1967, 1983). "I have never been to the O2 arena and I am really excited as the game is sold out".
