Joel Embiid cleared to play in Game 1 of playoffs

Only there was plenty of cause for trepidation when examining his team.

Harris said Brown was a "great coach" but fell well short of giving him a vote of confidence. And what about that collection of talent?

The roster looks much different this time around, of course, as the Sixers have significantly reshuffled the roster in acquiring two All-Star-caliber players in Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.

Aaron Gordon had 10 points and 10 rebounds, Evan Fournier scored 16 points and Jonathan Isaac had 11 as the No. 7-seeded Magic became the latest team to beat Toronto in the opening game of a playoff series. But the Sixers were outscored by 17 points in his 24 minutes, and lost 111-102. "I guarantee if we're winning, they're not booing, so that's the way to change it. Let's just go out there and win on Monday".

Now things get interesting.

Brooklyn isn't the team that has played less than a dozen games with its starting unit together.

It takes a special kind of skills, skills that Nets General Manager Sean Marks apparently possesses to build a team via trades, eating bad contracts to get draft picks, and simply being patient.

Potts called the situation "horrific" and said the department was keeping the boy and his family in their "thoughts and prayers". Aranda also was accused of walking into a mall store and sweeping his hand across a display table, breaking glasses.

Durant, Beverley tossed; Curry, Warriors take Game 1
Durant finished with 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting, while Beverley finished with 3 points on 1-of-6 shooting. But that's much harder than normal against the Clippers, who have the best bench in basketball.

On the ensuing possession, Nets forward Rodions Kurucs was called for his own flagrant for catching Ben Simmons with an elbow while battling for position under the rim.

"I just looked down because he said that his daughter was extremely sick, and he was checking on her". The NBA playoffs start tomorrow and the Sixers are set to take on the Brooklyn Nets.

Embiid is clearly not right. That number is a far cry from the 39.7 percent he shot during the regular season and the 36.4 percent he's shot for his career. What exactly they are looking at is hard to say, but this isn't a good look by any means. "I think he's more aware of what to expect". Visit SportsLine now to see who you should back to win the NBA Finals, all from the proven model that is up more than $4,000 on its NBA picks this season, and find out. Even with him, Brooklyn will have options to throw him and disrupt. This article will have gone live before Game 1 on Saturday.

"I'll point exclusively to fatigue", Brown said. Unfortunately, a hobbled Joel Embiid will also have to deal with non-basketball related fallout from Saturday's contest, too. Then again, there's a chance he doesn't. Simmons had just nine points and was an abysmal 1-for-5 from the charity stripe.

"If you're going to boo, then stay on that side". "That's how I feel".

Nobody wants a weak home-court advantage.

Philly fans are still waiting on that start.
