The NBA season returns with a cracking opening night this evening, starting with the Celtics taking on the 76ers.
The Eastern Conference rivals came to blows on numerous occasions in their playoff series last season and are backed to meet in the conference Finals this year.
Celtics fans inside the TD Garden will get to see Gordon Hayward compete for the first time in a home competitive game after his horrendous injury last season.
For the 76ers, they will likely be looking for revenge from their 4-1 playoff series defeat to Boston.
