In need of a spark, the shorthanded Celtics got an unexpected boost from two end-of-the-roster players in Shane Larkin and Jabari Bird. Larkin scored eight fourth-quarter points and Bird, a two-way call-up contributed some key minutes, as Boston spoiled the 76ers home opener with a 102-92 triumph.

Simmons: A ton of mistakes I've got to fix (0:46)

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart is "most likely out" from Friday's game vs. the Sixers after tweaking both his ankles against the Bucks. Smart watched Boston's shootaround Friday with his left ankle heavily wrapped and elevated. "[The ankle] was pretty swollen when I woke up [Thursday]. So we're just taking it easy. It's a long season." Smart isn't overly concerned: "It's nothing serious. That's the good thing. If I do not play [Friday], I should be back Tuesday [vs. the Knicks]."
