Philadelphia 76ers: 3 final thoughts on playoff series loss to Celtics

Philadelphia 76ers: 3 final thoughts on playoff series loss to Celtics

The Boston Celtics bounced the Philadelphia 76ers from the National Basketball Association playoffs in the second round, but Joel Embiid is confident that 2018 is merely the beginning of something special.

"We haven't made shots and I think if we can click on a night when we are guarding like we have been guarding and then make some shots, that's when we have a chance to be at our best", Brown said.

Following the Game 5 victory, a clearly frustrated Joel Embiid walked off the court without shaking any hands and that reportedly upset a bunch of players on the Celtics. We've gotta learn from it. Despite all that, Embiid had the attempt he wanted rolling to the basket for the layup over Aron Baynes, but simply came up short on the shot as well as the ensuing putback.

"Coming into this building, arena the fans are awesome here", Simmons said. "But there is very much a disappointment and an emptiness when someone stops something that you really like doing and stops something with guys you like doing it with". They have a young, productive core led by Embiid and Simmons, plenty of cap space to add to a talented roster this offseason, and draft capital to help firm up the roster with more youthful talent.

"If we're going to do anything of any significance, we're always going to have to go through the Boston Celtics", he said. Smart will most likely be matched up against LeBron James on defense. They will be picking 26th, 38th, 39th, 56th and 60th - and will likely have a lottery pick, as well. The ratings scale is 1-5 stars.

Tip off is in Boston on Wednesday (Thursday 10am AEST). 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.
