Al Horford will return for the Boston Celtics when they play the Philadelphia 76ers in London Thursday after missing Saturday's game in Brooklyn.

"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. Instead, Brown's energy jolted the Celtics out of their early funk.

After his eight-point, four-rebound, 4-for-8 shooting performance against the Nets, that rhythm appears to be building.

Simply put, Boston didn't look like itself. They played with consistent effort, they moved the ball, they drained open shots, and their defense tightened its grip.

"We just made adjustments, cut it down to nine at halftime, picked up our pace", Irving explained. He does a great job about getting everybody involved and being aggressive.

Once the joints were oiled, there was no slowing them down.

Now, the West is perceived as the mightier conference by most everyone - but the Celtics have actually done better against the West's elite teams this season than the teams that reside in the East.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 15 of his 20 points in the first half for the Spurs, who committed 21 turnovers while playing without injured starters Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and Danny Green. "I'll generally wake up first thing and do two to three of those games, and then you have a really good idea of how LeBron [James], Lonzo [Ball], Kyrie [Irving] and the guys on the Warriors are doing".

As the Celtics have done throughout this season, they refused to be rattled while facing a large deficit. Toronto's 133 points were the most by any Cavaliers opponent this season, and marked the third successive game that Cleveland have allowed at least 127.

"We are in a really fortunate position in that we've had some interesting match-ups in the past, we've had some marquee names in the past, but as the audience has matured here, so has their understanding of the National Basketball Association", said the 47-year-old. "When I get in the game I just try to create a lot of chaos and get us to running the floor".

During the days of the great Boston Celtics teams, the Celtics seemingly always had to get through the Nationals/Sixers to even get to the NBA Finals. "We have to pick it back up".

The Philadelphia 76ers are the league's no. 1 rebounding team this season, averaging 47.8 rebounds per game to the Celtics' 44.5 rebounds per game (11th in the league). Boston shot 57.1 percent from the field during the second half, all while limiting Philadelphia to just 36.6 percent shooting. The Celtics, meanwhile, extended their winning streak to seven games. The Celtics were covered in cobwebs, but they shook themselves free and completed their business trip across the Atlantic with a victory.
