"We are delighted to be making the NBA London Game 2018 to the widest possible audience on our Facebook page", declared Simon Green, head of BT Sport.

It's the eighth regular-season NBA match to be held in the British capital and a crowd of more than 18,500 will get to see an global line-up of basketball stars.

No one asked Irving if he got a good look at the earth on his flight to London.

If Horford were to miss out, it would be a cruel blow for the forward, who missed the NBA London Game 2014 through injury when he was with Atlanta Hawks.

Both the Celtics and the 76ers have been meeting various teams during the last week and spent time with Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Crystal Palace. Tickets for the clash have sold out.

The NBA returns to the United Kingdom Thursday (Friday AEDT) as the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers lock horns at the 02 Arena in London. Redick traveled overseas for an National Basketball Association game, it was with the Clippers for a preseason game in China.

"We set up an analytics model to look at what the secondary market could [financially] bear, so that we could maximise yield and not let other businesses - who were not paying our players - do it".

Ben Simmons, 76ers point guard: the 2016 No. 1 Draft pick has been tipped to be a future MVP contender.

Kyrie Irving is putting together a great season in his first year in Boston.

"That's my job, to bring energy off the bench and create for others and be the playmaker I am", Smart said. Brown praised him for carrying the ball, leading the team and "growing to be a leader". Irving is averaging 24.1 points per game with the Celtics who are now top of the Eastern Conference standings.

Seeing all the social media posts is wonderful for the Sixers' brand, but none of that matters when the game tips off and they must find ways to contain Kyrie Irving.

Led by coach Brett Brown, it has been a hard period for 76ers fans, as the team posted losing records for the past five seasons, including only winning 10 games in 2015-16. My worst fears have not only been assuaged, they've been eliminated.

While Tatum has been a revelation, Fultz got injured and hasn't played much this season. "It's paying off in a huge way for the Celtics".

Joel Embiid, 76ers: "I'm excited, it's a chance for me to show the crowd my skills, to show the whole world what I can do".

Robert Covington, 76ers: "This is a once in a lifetime experience". We've been to London before.

The Celtics were able to establish a defense that made up for any issues they had, and unmatched clutch play made sure that streak was able to stay alive. The two teams met in the playoffs in all of 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1959, 1961, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1969 - in simpler terms, the Celtics and Sixers met in the playoffs 12 times in a 17-year stretch, nine of which were in the Division Finals.
