Celtics players wanted Joel Embiid to 'man up' after all trash talking

Playoffs Notebook

Following another tough battle with the Boston Celtics, the Philadelphia 76ers officially watched their season come to an end on Wednesday after a tough 114-112 loss in Game 5 to put an end to what was an intense semifinals series.

One of the keys to Baynes' game was his ability to defend Embiid one-on-one, allowing the Celtics' other players to smother the 76ers' three-point shooters. Peak Embiid. The only thing lacking was a 3-pointer, but he finished with 27 points (9-for-18 shooting), 12 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 blocks in his best performance of the postseason.

After winning just 28 games a year ago, the Sixers finished the regular season with 52 wins and won a playoff series for the first time since 2012.

Speaking about a moment where Simmons approached him with his empty hands, Embiid said: "He was like "there's going to be a lot of rings on these". But we definitely have more to show". "We're going to be fine". According to ESPN Stats & Info, Embiid has struggled mightily in that regard this season as he missed all eight shots that could have been game-tying or go-ahead field goals.

If in the end crude oil remains at $68-$70/bbl, prices will not be that much more expensive this summer than they are now. DeHaan said if this did cause prices to go up, "it could be" long term depending on the long term response to Iran.

Embiid's running mate, Simmons, weighed in after the disappointing loss and echoed a similar sentiment of his big man. We committed a lot of mistakes [in the series].

The Celtics will play game one of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cavaliers on Sunday in Boston.

"Down deep, I get what we did", Brown said. In addition to Embiid, Simmons and 2017 No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, Philadelphia could have $25 million in projected cap space this summer if it renounces the rights to free agents Redick, Ersan Ilyasova, Marco Belinelli and Amir Johnson. But by pairing Embiid with 2016 No. 1 pick Ben Simmons, Philadelphia found a young one-two punch as intimidating as any in the National Basketball Association. If the Los Angeles Lakers' pick lands at #1 or at #6 to 30, the pick will go to Philly. "I felt like I had (a) lot more to go".
