CELTICS CRUSH SIXERS RISE

The Boston Celtics remain unbeaten in the UK after despatching the Philadelphia 76ers 114-103 in front of a sellout crowd at London’s 02 Arena.

Although the Sixers raced into a 49-27 advantage in the second, Boston outscored their rivals 69-31 over a 21-minute spell in the middle of the contest to brutally reverse the tide.

And, led by 21 points from Jayden Brown, the Eastern Conference leaders made it 3-0 in the season series and recorded a seventh straight win as Philly were despatched.

Joel Embiid had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Sixers.
