Kyrie Irving leads Celtics to overtime win over Washington

In franchise point guard John Wall's absence, the team has fared admirably well but the team had no answer to Sixers big man Joel Embiid, who finished with 27 points and 12 rebounds.

Avoiding a second consecutive loss would mean remaining undefeated against the Boston Celtics this season. The Celtics are coming off a win over Washington on Thursday night.

Close to being the hunted instead of the hunters in the NBA's Eastern Conference, the Toronto Raptors have reached the league's trade deadline in an unusual position. He shot a 54.5% field goal percentage, making 12-of-22 (1/2 from the line, 5/12 from three-point range). Washington's chance to jump Cleveland ended with Tuesday's 115-102 loss at Philadelphia. Irving, who arrived from Cleveland past year in a blockbuster trade, leads Boston with 24.7 points and 5.0 assists.

"We got our butts kicked by a really good team who physically overwhelmed us from a speed and physicality standpoint", Boston coach Brad Stevens said told reporters. "Where I stand with that, too". The same crispness wasn't there in the second game of a back-to-back set and third road game in four days.

The markets have been unusually calm since late 2016, and he said investors were betting that would continue. In and of themselves, corrections aren't something for investors to panic about, according to experts.

Jonas Valanciunas had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Serge Ibaka added 13 points and eight rebounds to lead seven Toronto Raptors in double figures in a win over visiting NY.

CJ McCollum added 22 points for the Trail Blazers, who squandered a 17-point, fourth-quarter lead.

"I thought everybody chipped in and played well", Washington coach Scott Brooks said. "We fought, we fought, and we battled".

So, for maybe the first time ever, the Raptors seem more settled one through 15 than any of the teams that are pursuing them and even more settled than the one they are in the process of tracking down.

Toronto is home to Uber's research lab for driverless technology and attracted Google's high-tech Sidewalk Labs project. Salesforce invests $2 billion into its Canadian business, it said on Thursday. "I certainly hope we get the HQ2 hub".

Even with Thursday afternoon's National Basketball Association trade deadline looming, the primary buzz involving Washington centers around a lingering narrative about the team's improved play without Wall.

Before the game, the Pacers announced Collison would miss two to three weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee.

After the Wizards had 30 assists and eight players score in double figures against the Raptors, Beal explained the contagious ball movement as "everybody eats". Victor Oladipo is averaging 24 points and 4.1 assists while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 13.6 points and 3.2 rebounds. "We knew it was going to be tough without both", Bogdanovic said. Some of them are based off of players rumored to be on the trade block, while others might just make sense considering the team. "I didn't do a good job of that and it kind of led to some of our mistakes", Irving said after the blow loss at the Air Canada Centre, via ESPN. Oubre missed the first and hit the second.

With only two games to go until the All-Star break, the Wizards (31-24) head to Chicago to take on the Bulls at 8:00pm on Saturday. Tomas Satoransky, who had been a key component of Washington's win streak as Wall's replacement, was held to six points and three assists after averaging 9.8 and 5.4, respectively, in the five wins.
