Ben Simmons hits out at the boo-boys after shock 76ers loss

Joel Embiid

The Sixers obviously need Simmons, Harris and Redick to step up regardless of whether Embiid plays or not. While Embiid did record a double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds, he struggled to find his shot (5-15 from the floor; 0-5 from three-point range). I thought that we kind of took a couple of punches from them, took a couple of runs and still kept our composure. "I take full responsibility and will accept the consequences of my actions".

Jimmy Butler scored 36 points for Philadelphia, but Joel Embiid failed to light up the Wells Fargo Centre with a 22-point haul and Ben Simmons only made nine. If the pattern holds it will be hard for all three players to do much this series. His 64 games played marked a personal high in a young career that's been marred by injuries. They played like they belonged in the postseason, despite not clinching their spot until the final week of the regular season. This season, the Nets have really excelled against-the-spread (ATS) the game after a straight-up win, as the market has tended to undervalue Brooklyn.

D'Angelo Russell rang up a scoring burst that helped Brooklyn dial up an upset and filled Philly's home court with a barrage of boos. He remains central to everything the Nets do and capable of finding his own shots.

In our Game 1 preview, in which we did have the Nets covering (but not winning), it was mentioned that the Nets did have the deeper team.

The Nets win in Game 1 was no fluke. The Celtics did the same again him in the playoffs last season and he suffered.

The defense was a huge key for Brooklyn in the opening game, as they held Philly below 30 points in all four quarters while going for 30+ in three quarters themselves. Like I said, this situation, you just kind of want to move it to the side. The deficit quickly reached 89-68 after a 3-pointer by Tobias Harris (19 points) with 7:41 left in the third.

"I apologise for having my phone on the bench in today's game", Johnson said in a statement released hours after the game by the 76ers. This means all students in high school and college sure better hope they have never texted in class or checked Twitter during a lecture - I have done both many times - if they are complaining about this one.

"I love the fans".

DeMarre Carroll is a less fancy option compared to Caris LeVert but LeVert has a habit of blowing hot and cold.

I think this series will be a dog fight, so I wouldn't bet this either way. Most of the starters were removed from the game with 10 minutes to go in regulation.

Playoff Jimmy Butler is back. Joel Embiid was the empowering force that got things going for the 76ers during that stretch.

Evan Fournier had 16 points for Orlando and Terrence Ross came off the bench for 10. The greatest shooter of all time scored 38 points and grabbed a staggering 15 rebounds in the game.
