Can you trust Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown?

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.

Recovery is indeed the right word, even if the Celtics are as frustrated as anyone by what that indicates.

Perhaps it was the time difference, jet leg or the unfamiliar days off they'd had in preparation for this game, but the usually unflappable Celtics look rattled. Their most improbable recovery remains their escape from a 26-point hole against Houston on December 28. So far this season, the Celtics have beaten the six best teams in the Western Conference (Warriors, Rockets, Spurs, Timberwolves, Thunder, Nuggets) and five of the six best teams in the Eastern Conference excluding themselves (Raptors, Cavaliers, Heat, Bucks, Pistons). He does a great job about getting everybody involved and being aggressive.

"Stay the course. We've done that all year. 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 Observer has learned Clifford has been suffering from severe headaches - a condition that started before this season - and has been working with doctors to establish the best course of preventive treatment going forward.

I wrote last week about the Boston Celtics coming back down to earth and I said that the up-and-down Celtics were closer to the real team than the squad that won 16 consecutive games earlier in the season.

"I am looking forward to the game on Thursday, I went to to Mexico past year, but I did not get to participate because I was traded, so hopefully I will not be traded this time and get to play overseas!"

Much tougher challenges await for Horford, Irving, Brown and Tatum, but Stevens will have them ready.

Larry Nance Jr. had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Los Angeles, which blew an early 19-point lead before running away in the fourth quarter.

The Celtics once again showed how important their offensive balance is.

The 15-2 burst built steam from downtown, with Morris following up another Rozier hoop - a drive made possible by a Marcus Smart steal - with his third trey of the night. The one blemish there is the Wizards - who beat the C's on Christmas Day in Boston, 111-103.

His coach Brett Brown said: "I think he's been a great teammate, his work rate is fantastic and continues to improve as he invests time in it".

By contrast, prices for comparable seats at Boston's TD Garden arena for next week's rematch between the same two teams start at £68 ($93) for upper corner seats and £376 ($508) for center lower bowl seats.
