Irving, Horford lead Celtics past 76ers for 1st win

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Boston had an opening week it would love to do over: Gordon Hayward, its prized free-agent signing, was lost to a gruesome injury, and the Celtics lost their first two games.

On the ropes against a 76ers team looking to prove "The Process" is more than a catchphrase, Kyrie Irving gave a glimpse why he may be the man in Boston that he so longed to be in Cleveland.

Irving scored 21 points, Al Horford had 17 and the Celtics won for the first time since losing Hayward, 102-92 over Philadelphia on Friday night.
