"[The injury] definitely crossed my mind ... just tried to get that out of my head as soon as I started playing and as soon as you're out on the court some of that disappears".

Last season, the Celtics played the Sixers 11 times, going 2-0 against them in the preseason, 3-1 in the regular season and 4-1 in the conference semifinals.

"I'm still learning", he said. "I thought that all of them did their jobs hard and I thought had great focus to do it well".

The 2018-2019 NBA Season is finally here, and for Chicago Bulls fans, it's simply nice to have basketball back.

With Jayson Tatum, Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown in the starting lineup, Boston has two unsafe squads ready to jump on opposing teams' second units. But Stevens should be able to figure it out. Because they've discussed an extension, just had conversations about one, but also he's in demand on the trade market ... he's a terrific backup for anybody in the league. He drained his first career 3-pointer for a 108-88 lead and the Philly fans that are firmly perched in his corner went wild and again chanted his name.

As Sixers coach Brett Brown said, Irving and Hayward fit perfectly into the style of play the Celtics employed in the playoffs a year ago. Brown tried to give Fultz a confidence boost by putting him in the starting lineup - yet has benched him for the start of the second half.

The Celtics have faced the Sixers in 20 playoff series, their most against any team.

They shot a combined 6-for-26 for the game.

Simmons had 12 triple-doubles last season and became the first player in franchise history to accomplish the feat in a home opener. If you would have said that to me even before the game, I wouldn't have said that.

Even though we believe there's no team in the world that can actually contain the Warriors upon DeMarcus Cousins' arrival, we firmly believe that the Rockets are the team with the biggest shot at an upset in the West, mostly because of the way D'Antoni has built the team's roster just to matchup against the Dubs.

The Celtics didn't play particularly well in their season-opening victory over the 76ers.

"They were great", said Hayward.
