76ers star (knee) ‘questionable’ for Game 2 vs. Nets

NBA playoffs Nets and Magic stun high-seeds 76ers and Raptors

It entered Week 26 of the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season with a sterling 292-234 record on all top-rated plays, returning over $4,000 in profit to anybody following them.

The Sixers got a little something from everybody in this one. Amir Johnson got caught checking his phone while the team was down double digits in the fourth quarter.

Simmons had a disastrous Game 1, on the court (nine points) and from a PR perspective after he criticized fans for booing during a game the Sixers were never really in.

And the worst part?

After a shocking outcome in the first game where the guests made a break, we have Game 2 between the third-seeded in the East Philadelphia 76ers (51-51), who have won only twice in their last seven games, are hosting once again the sixth-seeded Brooklyn Nets (42-40), who are leading the series 1-0 wins and are looking to extend their current winning streak.

But therein might lay the silver lining. When you see your teammate play with that type of energy he picks you up, lifts you up and it makes you want to play the same way.

"First, I'm so with you on Jimmy, like that was the adult in the room".

"If you're going to boo, then stay on that side", he said.

Game 2 was a much different story the entire way through, as Simmons would go on on to finish with 18 points to go along with 12 rebounds and 10 assists as Philadelphia evened the series with a record-breaking 145-123 win over Brooklyn. Remember, this is a team that faded down the stretch of the season.

However, Butler proved on Saturday afternoon, why the Sixers acquired him in a blockbuster trade earlier this season.

Embiid said the voracious booing that was largely absent during the dark days of the Sixers 10-win season was tough to hear. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown called Johnson's actions "completely unacceptable".

Firefighters believe the blaze is "potentially linked" to the renovation work of the building, reports Le Figaro . US President Donald Trump has suggested "perhaps flying water tankers" to extinguish the fire.

The 6 seeded Brooklyn Nets met the star studded Philadelphia 76ers and had a dominating performance. He tried a knee brace during his pregame warm-up, but decided against wearing it during the game, saying it caused pain in his calf.

"Whenever I'm out there, I kind of forget about the pain and just try and do the right things", Embiid said.

The Sixers topped the 141 points scored in a 1967 playoff game against the San Francisco Warriors to set a team franchise record. Because of that fatigue, he often settled for jumpers instead of continuing to get to the line like he did to start the game.

"Hopefully, I'll feel better and gain a couple more of my athletic abilities so I can be more down on the block", Embiid said. Jimmy did a great job today attacking.

"I got him pretty good and I'm sorry about it", Embiid said, laughing at the pseudo apology.

Tobias Harris' struggles are troubling.

Embiid was hobbled in Game 1 but still finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds in 24 minutes. He just needs to get out of his own head. That's big progress for us. Philly obviously needs him on the floor, but this series has the potential to go beyond five games, so the Sixers need to play it smart with him as well. "His experience from the playoffs past year - you want to improve from that and you want to show all the fans all the work he definitely has put in". You can only see it at SportsLine. In the end, I think we just gotta do better.
