Why the Chicago Bulls can upset the Philadelphia 76ers opening night

Adjust Comment Print

The Celtics made the first move toward earning their place as Eastern Conference favorites with a win over the 76ers on opening night.

Hayward was playing limited minutes as he adjusts to being back after a year of rehabilitation, sharing time with Australian Aron Baynes for at least the season's first couple of weeks. Chicago then lost budding star Lauri Markkanen and key contributor Denzel Valentine to injuries in the preseason, Philadelphia got smacked in its season opener at Boston Tuesday, and Bulls starting point guard Kris Dunn was excused from the team to welcome his baby boy into the world.

Now even though Hayward will be looking to start the season off strong I think that Celtics fans need to manage their expectations. "We were looking to get that momentum back from where we were from a year ago, and I finally felt like we kind of got it back a little bit". He finished with 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting in 25 minutes.

"We were excited to have (Gordon) and Kyrie back", Tatum said. If he's able to take them to the WCF, and if he's able to lead them past the Dubs, he's going to be right back in the GOAT conversation, and he knows it. Hayward didn't even make it out of the first quarter of the first game past year, but he returned Tuesday night to score 10 points with five rebounds and four steals.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens believes a heated Celtics-Sixers rivalry is good for the National Basketball Association.

When asked if he felt like anything was going on the first two ALCS games at Fenway Park, Cora responded, "No, I don't". Game 3 of the ALCS is in Houston, slated for a 5:09 p.m.

The Bulls backup point guard situation will be in dire straits all season, with no established veteran behind Kris Dunn. "I thought that, again, our depth was a big factor in the game".

The 2018-19 regular season started as the Boston Celtics faced the Philadelphia 76ers at home.

It didn't. In the first half of the NBA's season opener at the TD Garden, Irving took eight shots - and missed all of them.

After months of anticipation, the Boston Celtics finally showed the advantage they'll have thanks to their incredibly deep roster.

The Celtics led by five at halftime and pushed the margin to eight when Irving hit two free throws for his first points of the game with 10:46 left in the third quarter.

The Saudi government, it said, would shield the prince by blaming an intelligence official for the bungled operation. But Trump was already facing pressure from some in Congress to respond to the Saudis with economic sanctions.

Keep in mind, Tatum was the only player who really excelled in a dominant performance for the Celtics.

One of those teammates was Ben Simmons.

Markelle Fultz will get a chance to challenge himself on the court Tuesday night.

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

The Philadelphia 76ers resigned Amir Johnson and JJ Redick in the off-season along with other additions and are definitely a team to watch out for this season.
