BOX SCORE: 76ERS 107, CELTICS 93

Kemba Walker had a rough Celtics debut, shooting 4-for-18 for his 12 points, though he wasn’t alone, considering a rough but prolific night by Jayson Tatum, who went for volume in his 21-point, 8-for-22 performance. Overall the team reflected these numbers from the line, where the Celtics shot an underwhelming 20-for-34.

Gordon Hayward overcame a slow start for a 25-point, 8-for-15 night. Enes Kanter started because of the Joel Embiid challenge (15 points, 13 rebounds) and held his own against the Sixers big man, finishing with 12 points and six rebounds.

But thanks to the work of Hayward and Tatum in the offensive end, and the usual floor-scraping work by Marcus Smart down the other end, cut the Philly lead to 77-73 with 9:31 left on a Hayward drive.

PORTLAND – Matisse Thybulle is purposely oblivious. The 76ers rookie doesn’t keep up with the NBA statistical rankings. So Thybulle was unaware that he was the league’s leader in steals heading into Saturday night’s 129-128 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. “I try not to look at the numbers, because for me all the defensive [ones] just come from hustle and just getting lost in the game,” he said after the shootaround Saturday.Consciously trying to get steals has never worked for him.“So it’s exciting to see the numbers,” he said. “But do I really worry about them? No.”Thybulle lead the NBA in steals at 2.8 per game.
