Joel Embiid Is Getting Playoff Advice From…Draymond Green?

Joel Embiid Is Getting Playoff Advice From…Draymond Green?

Quite frankly, for Joel Embiid and Allen Iverson, this isn't the mentality the team has this season.

This marks JoJo's first postseason appearance.

After coming close in the first three games of the series, Simmons notched his first career playoff triple triple-double with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists.

Embiid didn't play in either of the series' first two games because of an orbital fracture, but he was a huge part of Philadelphia's winning efforts in Games 3 and 4.

Miami Heat guard/forward Josh Richardson (shoulder) said there is a "60 percent chance" that he will suit up against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday.

"(I'm) still sore", Richardson said today after shootaround. Speaking of adjustments, Brown elected to start Ilyasova in Game 2 in Joel Embiid's absence, and it was a solid decision. The Heat cranked up their physical approach on the perimeter in that game which led them to the win, but Ers-quake thoroughly outplayed Hassan Whiteside and Bam Adebayo, the two men with the unenviable task of defending the Sixers in the paint.

Dwyane Wade, who sparked an upset in Game 2, came off the bench to lead Miami with 25 points, while Goran Dragic had 20.

Former Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti has been offered the vacant Italian National Team head coach role, a report claims.

Earlier Tuesday in Boston, the Celtics took a 3-2 series lead against the Bucks with a 92-87 win.

So much of this entire 2017-2018 season has been about how a relatively young, green 76ers team - one loaded with promising, yet unproven talent - has handled new experiences, managed elevated hype, and, ultimately, found ways to exceed expectations.

"The atmosphere was unbelievable, it was insane", Embiid said. "They play their system and play an nearly 24-second offense and of course we respect them". Especially myself, I play better in that type of environment. Him having the demeanor to take on that challenge is similar to me so that's why I have respect for him just based on the way he gets the job done.

"We'll see how he responds in the afternoon", Spoelstra said. A team like Miami, their culture, their organization, their group of guys, they have fighters. I don't think we need anybody else.

Rather, Game 5 felt inevitable because the Sixers got better looks all night long.

While far from the fastest, strongest or most gifted player in the league, McConnell is pure Philly toughness, a gritty guard who's always down to fight for a loose ball, play some pesky defense, and go in for the steal, and in only 14 minutes of action so far this playoff series, he's made his presence known. The game is set for 8 p.m. EST on TNT.
