76ers, Celtics to play in NBA London Game

76ers, Celtics to play in NBA London Game”

As part of the NBA's Global Games Initiatives, the Celtics will play their first regular-season game in Europe this season - with Boston set to battle the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA London Game 2018 at the O2 Arena on January 11.

The NBA London Game will feature the Atlantic Division rivals who found themselves as trade partners prior to this year's draft.

This stands as the first time that the Celtics have played a regular season game in London, as well as the eighth time that the National Basketball Association has hosted a game in London during the regular season. Since then, there have been regular season games held in Yokohama, Saitama, Mexico City and London, which hosted its first regular season contest in 2011, when the Toronto Raptors went down to the New Jersey Nets. It will be the second time the Celtics have traveled to England's capital, as they also played a preseason game there against the Minnesota Timberwolves back in 2007.

The 76ers will be playing their second game in the United Kingdom and first in London, having previously played a pre-season match in Manchester against Oklahoma City Thunder in 2013. However, this will be their first time in London.

Philadelphia vs Boston gives fans the chance to see Celtics All-Stars Isaiah Thomas and Gordon Hayward, while the 2017 No.1 pick Markelle Fultz and Joel Embiid will be on show for the 76ers.

The Celtics took three of four meetings from the 76ers in 2016-17.
