Ben Simmons changes his stance on boos, says he 'loves Philly'

Ben Simmons changes his stance on boos, says he 'loves Philly'

He scored 22 points with 15 rebounds, five blocks and four assists, but even his strong showing wasn't enough. "We got great minds behind it", Russell said after the game, via ESPN.

Jimmy Butler was the lone bright spot for the 76ers.

The Los Angeles Lakers' senior management has plans to travel East to meet with Philadelphia 76ers assistant Monty Williams between Games 2 and 3 of the Sixers' playoff series, league sources told ESPN.

Embiid was listed as "doubtful" for the first game of the matchup. "But it was important for him to get his feet wet and feel the playoffs, feel the energy, and I have no doubt he'll come back and play a lot better in Game 2".

Fatigue was the biggest factor in limiting the minutes of Joel Embiid and that is absolutely vital to the Nets continuing success.

Pistons get routed by Bucks in Game 1, 121-86
That's as close as the Pistons would get, however, as the Bucks stretched the lead to 70-43 by halftime. Milwaukee's advantage reached 30 just 26 seconds into the second half when Brown made a 3-pointer.

Their offense has gone into the tank, ranking 28th in points per game since the All-Star break. However, with Embiid's knee being an issue and the Nets being hungry, I wouldn't be surprised if they advanced.

NEED TO KNOW: Patrick Beverley and Kevin Durant insisted after their ejections in Game 1 they were just having fun and trash-talking in the heat of the playoffs. Backup forward Ed Davis was excellent as well, totaling 12 points with 16 rebounds in 25 minutes. We might lose, but you're alive - buy three more days. Kawhi Leonard tried to answer and force the game into overtime but his long three pointer hit nothing but air. They're going to give you s--, they talk s--, it is what it is.

This win was head coach Greg Popovich's 1,413, including the post season and regular season. Starting point guard Kyle Lowry had a terrible game where he scored ZERO points in 34 minutes of action.

Joel Embiid #21 of the Philadelphia 76ers looks on during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Second Round of the 2018 NBA Playoffs against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden on May 3, 2018 in Boston. He shot 48.4 percent from the field and 30 percent from 3-point range. The Nets also got big performances from Dinwiddie (18 points) and Caris LeVert (23 points) off the bench. Nets center Jarrett Allen, who has become famous for blocking dunk attempts from star players, blocked an attempt by Harris at the rim. Favorites getting less than 50% of bets, like the 76ers, have gone 230-198-14 (54%) ATS since 2005 in the playoffs. Meanwhile, Tobias Harris had just four points. The Sixers struggles from the first game won't just disappear, and any mistakes made by Simmons will likely lead to more boos.
