    No Surprises for Boston Celtics Opening Night Starters; 76ers to Start Markelle Fultz

    Brad Stevens Announces Opening Night Starters for Celtics vs. Sixers


    Less than one hour from now, the TD Garden will be rocking yet again.

    For the first time since a Game 7 loss to Cleveland in the Eastern Conference Finals, basketball is back in Boston.

    Brad Stevens announced the starters, and there are no surprises.

    Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Gordon Hayward and Al Horford round out the starting lineup, an insistence on going small even against a top center like Joel Embiid.

    The 76ers will throw Markelle Fultz to the wolves, as Fultz gets the nod tonight in favor of sharpshooter J.J. Reddick, who will move to the bench. Ben Simmons, Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Embiid finish off the 76ers starting lineup.
