Celtics' Jaylen Brown: "The doctors didn't want me to play"

Al Horford Jaylen Brown

Joel Embiid wasn't impressed with crowd in Boston in Game 1 of the Celtics' series with the Philadelphia 76ers.

The biggest game of the Philadelphia 76ers' season was Thursday night at TD Garden and Ben Simmons didn't show up. "That's about it. Gotta look ahead, look forward, and get ready for tomorrow". The Irving injury turned a team that won 55 regular-season games into a postseason longshot. They really have individual defensive pieces that are exceptional. And then they sent all of that to hell. Early in LeBron [James'] days, that was all he saw. I think that at the end of the day, the tweaks will be the tweaks, but it's, do you come with the right intensity?

Iverson, who turns 43 Monday, minimized the importance of practice with his immortal, "We're talkin' about practice?" speech in 2002.

The Sixers began the game with a quick 8-0 run to surprise the home team.

Simmons can use any energy from anywhere. They attacked. There were killer cuts that led to inside hoops, which begat openings on the perimeter that Redick and Robert Covington gratefully filled. That being said, it's not doom-and-gloom for the Philadelphia 76ers just yet. "I bent down, stopped, accelerated, picked up the ball and exploded up for the dunk".

After botching several lay-ups - where he was given a clear runway to the paint - he became too passive, looking for a pass the moment the lane closed.The Celtics have done a great job of forcing Simmons to his left hand in the post - which is ironic bc Simmons is lefty jump-shooter.

Sunny Bank Holiday weekend to bring respite after winds and rain
After the last few days of miserable weather, Brits have been left wondering whether our summer has already been and gone. Temperatures will be warmer than today, especially in the sunnier parts of the country where 13-15c will be typical.

Despite the pushback from Boston the Sixers never trailed in the first quarter and led 31-22 after one.

Even Brown seems to have second thoughts. (Redick) back into the game in the second period.

"There were a few times", Brown said.

Don't look for Brown to go on a timeout spending spree when the series moves to the Center. They only made three of those attempts as they desperately tried to limp into the half with a double-digit advantage, but the Celtics weren't going to let that happen. "But we were doing OK".

Stevens noted how Brown was on the phone with team doctors about two hours before tipoff trying to talk his way into playing. "I probably made everybody nervous as hell". And as I admit, if you had to do it again, maybe you would have. "It's not something we just sort of construct in our mind". The Celtics are sticking with the same starting five they used in Game 1, with Marcus Smart starting alongside Terry Rozier in the backcourt. Following a lethargic start that almost buried them, Boston shook it off and erupted for a game-defining 26-8 run.

If Simmons had offered Philly anything offensively, they would've secured a win as they had three players score 20+ points each. "We have two home games that we need to take care of and handle business". Philadelphia has seen the over go 4-0 in their last 4 games following a ATS loss and 4-1 in their last 5 games following a straight up loss.
