Sixers' Simmons says confidence high despite dismal outing

Stephen Curry hasn’t played in these NBA playoffs

Meanwhile, Jaylen Brown is back and contributing.

"It was my call".

Philadelphia was far more assertive offensively in the first half of Game 2 than they were in Game 1. I would have had the same people in the game. Wasn't just out there, flowing, playing the way that I play, which is free. That's the decision I made. Embiid grabbed six rebounds to go with two points.

"Adrenaline, when adrenaline takes over you don't really feel anything".

Philadelphia's Game 1 loss could have been partially attributed to rust as they had been off for almost a week after dispatching the Heat in five games while Boston went right to the wire to knock out the Bucks.

"I'm going to give it some time, walk away, let everybody breathe for a second", he said. They just looked me in the eye and they were back and forth and unsure, and I was like hey, I'm playing, that's it. I got to play my game.

Despite giving up such a huge advantage, the 76ers still had chances to win down the stretch but failed to get crucial buckets in the clutch moments and succumbed to a 108-103 loss. On the other hand, the Celtics went 17-35 from 3. Fultz had injury issues and barely played this season. He might have a different feeling now that Game 2 has ended.

"Jayson Tatum probably should have been the first pick in the draft", Erving said.

"When I first got in, I got a breakaway and did everything to aggravate it I guess".

"I spoke to AI before I came here today", Simmons said after shootaround. One key for Boston has been getting Embiid out of the paint on the defensive end: he averaged 13 percent of the time in the paint during the regular season: that was down to nine percent in Game 1 and 7 percent in Game 2.

Tatum was humbled by the Sixers legend's praise.

During Monday's edition of "First Things First" on Fox Sports 1, Wright explained why he only can think of one scenario in which the Celtics take down the 76ers in the best-of-seven series. And the needle on Philly's who-cares meter didn't twitch when Greg Monroe of the Celtics scored inside to make it 53-35 with 3:24 left in the half.

Some people don't mind falling into a momentary hole.

"I love it", he said.

Part of the Sixers' struggles were directly tied to Ben Simmons and his stark lack of productivity.

The two met past year when Brown attended one of his concerts.

But after the lead seesawed, Morris gave the Celtics a 96-95 lead with 4:16 to play. But that's not us. Boston seems to be taking a physical approach with Simmons, effectively cutting off his ability to drive and create for his teammates.

The Celtics are proving people need to change what they think about the talent level of this team, but consistency has been too much of a problem to trust it entirely right now.
