Simmons triple-double leads 76ers past Bulls

Adjust Comment Print

The Celtics knocked the 76ers out of the playoffs last season and Tuesday night's comprehensive 105-87 home win confirmed Simmons and his teammates have plenty of work to do.

Check out some of the highlights from last night's National Basketball Association season-opener in the posts embedded below. Plus he's been dealing with some back soreness.

Hayward said it was "amazing" to be back out there. "We were looking to get that momentum back from where we were from past year, and I finally felt like we kind of got it back a little bit".

Tatum said his trash talk was playful, but starting Tuesday everything turned much more serious. "They were tremendous. It was everything I expected when I originally signed here".

From early on, every time the ball would touch Fultz's hands, the wild Wells Fargo center crowd would bellow "Shoot!" at the second-year guard, who struggled through a miserable rookie season that was abbreviated because of a right shoulder injury. He continued to play both Irving and his backcourt mate, Gordon Hayward, who was playing in his first game since a gruesome injury in Game 1 of the 2017-18 season derailed his entire season. "I thought that, again, our depth was a big factor in the game. I had no intention of really restricting him minutes-wise, but it's probably not all bad to play 29 in that first one and get your feet underneath you and get ready to go from here".

Thompson's Brown said . "I played football with a leather helmet and my brain is still working better than his". Prior to the three meeting privately over lunch, the president allowed the press to ask a few questions.

"That's where we've got to focus as a team". But Markelle Fultz took the most shots - including his first made regular-season three-pointer - and that's what made his head coach the happiest.

When you add on that top two, it is simply unfair to compare the collection of talent on the 76ers to that of the Celtics.

The Celtics led by five at halftime and pushed the margin to eight when Irving hit two free throws for his first points of the game with 10:46 left in the third quarter. You can make the case Embiid and Simmons were the most prominent players on the court on either team, but that was no where near enough and they were effective. "I am just comfortable out there".

Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving will return for Boston while Philadelphia will be hoping to see the partnership between Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid blossom even further.

The expectation isn't that high for the Bulls this season, as a lot of people don't think this team will win a lot of games.
