THURsday’s OTHER NBA GAME

Celtics 114, 76ers 103

LONDON

Kyrie Irving had 20 points, seven assists and six rebounds and the Boston Celtics overcame a 22-point deficit to beat the Philadelphia 76ers in the eighth NBA game played in England. Jaylen Brown added 21 points, and Marcus Morris had 19 points and eight rebounds to help the Eastern Conference-leading Celtics extend their winning streak to seven games. JJ Redick had 22 points and hit five 3-pointers for Philadelphia, but the 76ers were unable to take advantage of their fast start. Joel Embiid had 16 points, and fellow All-Star hopeful Ben Simmons added 15. Embiid and Simmons helped out Redick at the start of the second and the 76ers made their first nine shots of the quarter to open the 22-point lead with 6:56 remaining in the quarter. However, Irving finally made a 3, sparking a strong Celtics finish to the half.
