Celtics, NBA Twitter reacts to Boston’s 126-117 win over the Philadelphia 76ers

The Boston Celtics started their 2022-23 campaign that honors the life and legacy of Hall of Fame big man Bill Russell as the man himself would have wanted it. They earned a 126-117 win against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.

The game took place at a TD Garden transformed by the players wearing the City Edition jerseys he helped design. The jerseys pay homage to his historic career and works off the court that literally bears the imprint of his greatness.

Looking much like the behemoth that came within two wins of an NBA title last season, the team had issues controlling Sixers star Joel Embiid for much of the first half but had the game in hand by the final quarter’s start.

Let’s take a look at what NBA and Celtics Twitter were saying about the season opener win for Boston on the league’s unofficial social media platform.
