Celtics vs 76ers HIGHLIGHTS: All the best action from NBA London 2018

The 23-year-old is enjoying an impressive season in his second campaign after injury-hit years
The Philadelphia 76ers hosted Thursday's London game against the Celtics, which showcased two of the league's more exciting teams to an global audience.
The Celtics took their first lead midway through the third quarter, and soon took control as Morris and fellow reserve Marcus Smart stretched the lead. When it comes to defensive rating (DRTG), however, the Celtics own a league first 101.9 points allowed per possession to the 76ers' 106.2 points allowed per possession, 7th in the league.
Smart scored eight of Boston's 37 points in a span in which the team shot 57.7 percent from the field.
It was a promising start, powered by the hot hand of J.J. Redick, the Sixers jumped out to a quick 9-2 lead.
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.
Philadelphia enters this game in London in the middle of a hot streak going 4-0 SU and ATS over its last four games. Simmons returned and immediately assisted on a Robert Covington three to force another Stevens timeout with the lead at 18 points. We kept going back down and trying to find the mismatch.
Smart didn't just put up a team-high 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting on Friday night, he gave a lifeless Celtics team an unexpected offensive jolt when it had previously been colder than the single-digit temperatures outside TD Garden. As a young, developing group we still have to take advantage of the opportunities afforded to us to grow and really figure out who we want to be and our identity on a consistent basis. "The last three minutes we got outworked and they got back in the game".
Turnovers, again, were an issue. In 2007, they beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 92-81 in a pre-season game.
National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver admits that fines doled out to players for criticizing referees are more symbolic than actual deterrents. "We've had lots of discussions with the Premier League to discuss the ways they do things differently to see what we can learn".
The Sixers next game is at 1 p.m. Monday against the Toronto Raptors at Wells Fargo Center.
In a statement made by Simon Green, head of BT Sport, he said: "We are delighted to be making the NBA London Game 2018 to the widest possible audience on our Facebook page".
Silver pointed to state-of-the-art arenas in Paris and Berlin as possible venues for future regular-season games, but said he couldn't offer a "specific calendar" for when it might happen.
Anyway, Brown finished with a team-high 21 points, four rebounds and three steals.
Addressing the media at the Boston Celtics' game against the Philadelphia 76ers at London's O2 Arena, Silver said that despite player concerns the league hadn't found significant changes in how games are being called.
