Joel Embiid on loss: 76ers played poorly, Boston crowd noise 'OK'

Posted May 02, 2018

The gulf between the teams isn't going to be as wide the rest of the series as it was in Game 1, but Boston also present problems for the 76ers that can't be brushed off.

According to A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports, Brown said: "I'll be back". I liked how Embiid took over the game for a while by bullying his way inside to the basket. "This was a very poor game from us".

Embiid and the Sixers will get a chance to avenge this loss, of course.

Celtics fans gave it to Simmons pretty hard on Monday, chanting "Not A Rookie!" when he went to the free throw line in the second half.

One of the things that screenwriter Lawerence Kasdan likes about the character is his unpredictability and his recklessness. With dust flying around and walkers falling from the sky, it appears that even Han doesn't quite fit into this world.

One of the highlights of the game came in the last minute of the third quarter, when Marcus Smart, 6-foot-4, leaped above the 7-footer and ripped down a rebound.

When he strutted into the building wearing a Drew Bledsoe jersey - a parting shot at Milwaukee's Eric Bledsoe - we should have known that the long ball was going to fall his way. "I'm gonna have to back up my words with our group". A six-day break can be used to somewhat explain this, but it's not like Philadelphia got jumped and were forced to play catchup. "I took advantage of them letting me play one-on-one". Simmons finished with 18 points, seven boards, six dimes, two steals, and one block in another incredible all-around performance. What we did learn, however, is that if Boston's active talent plays to the potential that they have shown in flashes, the 76ers will not get anything else in this series, and can not afford any of their top players to have a bad performance.

The Sixers were led by center Joel Embiid, who notched 31 points and 13 rebounds, while veteran guard J.J.

One thing that didn't seem to bother some of the Sixers on Monday night? Technically, Simmons is a rookie after missing all of last season with an injury, and he should absolutely win Rookie of the Year - it wouldn't be fair to hold a dumb National Basketball Association rule against him after a spectacular first season on the floor. "I don't think we started off the game as crisp as we ended it, but, yeah, that could be - that could certainly be a reason for whether they were a little bit rusty in Game 1 or whether we had the rhythm from Game 7". "It didn't bother me. He's starting to understand what he needs to do and its great to see for our team". It was good. I love that type of atmosphere because it kind of elevates my game.
