Fan Hilariously Falls Victim To 3-Point Shot Prank During Celtics-76ers

Like so many sports organisations around the world, the Celtics are investing heavily in analytics, allowing it to be more efficient across such areas as player purchases, fan interaction, and efficient ticketing.

"He just took a cheap shot", Morris said.

Jaylen Brown scored 21 points with Kyrie Irving adding 20 and Marcus Morris 19 for the Celtics, helping Boston turn a 49-27 deficit midway through the second period into a 69-68 lead by the middle of the third and sending them to a seventh straight win.

"It felt good, man".

The final score ended up being a bit flattering to the 76ers, who trailed by as many as 18 points in the final two minutes before scoring the game's last seven points.

"I was just not in the rhythm". "Beautiful I had a great time". "The last three minutes we got outworked and they got back in the game". The 29-year-old Durant finished with 40 points in the game - Lou Williams had 50 for the Clippers - and the only player to get to 20,000 at a younger age is LeBron James.

"I don't think they did anything. When we'll walk in the arena, it's going to look a little different, but once the ball is in the air it's going to be the same thing as everywhere else".

What better way to grow the game overseas than to humiliate a fan in front of a sold-out O2 Arena?

Marcus Morris provided 19 points from the bench, though he received a technical in the fourth quarter for shoving Ben Simmons after the Sixers guard made no effort to avoid his screen. "I honestly don't know what I would say about that but it would just be unbelievable". But it's a good shot. It is what it is.

"Hopefully, I don't have to get fined for that". "I wish I would have slept", veteran center Al Horford told The Globe.

Everything seemed to be going Philadelphia's way and a huge block from Joel Embiid had the crowd on their feet. But Frank Theis is about to witness something better, said the Celtics forward. "I really want to come back to change that".

Boston head coach Brad Stevens said: "We didn't play well early on, they played great but we stayed the course and we've done that all year". "I'm happy he's here, but I'm more happy that he's coming to the TD Garden". Or is it Philly blue for rookie of the year contender Ben Simmons and his 76ers?

"I have no idea", Simmons said.

"I am enjoying the role I have and doing my job as best as I can".

Tatum's confidence may be on the quieter side from his Philly counterpart, but he's picked up speed in similar fashion. "You do have to learn on the fly. We just try to come out, play basketball, and just try to help our team win, and I think our individual success comes from team accolades". Not that much room for error. "We are doing our part as an National Basketball Association member [by playing in London], but more selfishly we know we have a lot of fans here in Europe".

GETTING IT RIGHT: The Chicago Bulls had gone through some extremely hard defensive times before beating the New York Knicks in double overtime on Wednesday night.

Jayson Tatum chipped in 16 points, while Al Horford almost collected a triple-double, finishing with 13 points, eight boards and seven assists.
