It was the first of two planned ceremonies this season to celebrate and remember Russell, who passed away on July 31 at the age of 88. The second ceremony is scheduled for Russells birthday on Feb. 12.

The teams tribute included video highlights of Russells best moments on and off the court. The team then wore No. 6 patches in the top corner of their new special edition jerseys. These jerseys also featured 11 gold diamonds down the side, representing the 11 championships Russell helped bring to Boston over his legendary 13-year career.

Celtics star forward Jaylen Brown also said some kind words about Russell before the game.

Bill Russell was a great man for what and who he stood for. He represented a nobility and honesty that transcended sport. He was a true champion both on and off the floor, and our gratitude is endless, Brown said.

The ceremony concluded with two performances by Grammy-nominated singer Aloe Blacc and a poem by Boston Poet Laureate Porsha Olayiwola.

The Boston Celtics kicked off their season in style on Tuesday night versus the Philadelphia 76ers. Celtics stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown each scored 35 points apiece to lead Boston to a 126-117 home win over the Sixers.

Meanwhile, Tatum secured a team-high 12 rebounds to go along with his 35 points. The Celtics as a team, also shot a blistering 56.1% from the field (46/82) for the game in an impressive offensive display.

On the Sixers side, superstars James Harden and Joel Embiid led the team with 35 points and 26 points respectively. Embiid also pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds. Meanwhile, Sixers rising star guard Tyrese Maxey and veteran forward Tobias Harris added 21 and 18 points, respectively, for Philly.

Overall, it was a fairly competitive game as the Sixers also shot 50% (40/80) from the field and 38.2% (13/34) from three as a team. The game was tied 63-63 at halftime before the Celtics outscored Philly 35-25 in the third quarter to take a 98-88 lead entering the fourth. The Celtics never gave up the lead again as their lead ranged from six to 16 throughout the fourth quarter.

The Celtics, along with their new interim head coach Joe Mazzulla, now move to 1-0 on the season. Their next game will be on Friday on the road against the Miami Heat. Meanwhile, the Sixers fall to 0-1 heading into their tough Thursday home opener versus the Milwaukee Bucks.

Celtics big man Robert Williams III had PRP injection after undergoing knee surgery

Boston Celtics Center Robert Williams III

The Boston Celtics may have looked strong on opening night. However, the team recently received a tough injury update regarding starting big man Robert Williams III. Williams is reportedly out indefinitely after receiving a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection in his injured left knee on Monday. This comes after Williams already underwent knee surgery in late September.

The Athletics Shams Charania reported the update on Tuesday. Charania noted that the Celtics hope Williams can return for the second half of this season.

Williams, aged 25, is coming off a career-best season with averages of 10.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game on 73.6% shooting. He was also a member of the NBA All-Defensive Second Team last season. So, simply put, it will be difficult for the team to replace his production.

Williams extended absence will now put a lot of pressure on 36-year-old veteran big man Al Horford this season. In todays game versus the Sixers, Horford finished with just six points and five rebounds on 2/7 shooting as the teams starting center. Meanwhile, as previously mentioned, Sixers big man Joel Embiid finished with 26 points and 15 rebounds on 9/18 shooting. However, that is actually a pretty average game for Embiid, and the Celtics got the win. So all things considered, Horford did a credible job defending him.

It will certainly be interesting to see if the Celtics can keep up this level of success against the leagues top bigs while Williams remains sidelined.
