Joel Embiid Could Face Stiff Discipline for Using Phone on Bench

It's a stark contrast to his initial reaction on Saturday afternoon when he received the brunt of the criticism and only had nine points and seven rebounds in a lackluster game. Russell, LeVert and Spencer Dinwiddie gave the Sixers fits off the dribble, buried open looks from 3-point range, and suddenly a team that got hot late just to make the playoffs has the upper-hand on the road over a 51-win team stocked with stars.
Jimmy Butler was the only Sixers player to show up on Saturday, pouring in 36 points. Joel Embiid slogged his way through 24 forgettable minutes on his bum left knee. The greatest shooter of all time scored 38 points and grabbed a staggering 15 rebounds in the game.
The Philadelphia 76ers added Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris this season to make a run at an National Basketball Association title, but the Brooklyn Nets proved Saturday they can't look past them.
NEED TO KNOW: Patrick Beverley and Kevin Durant insisted after their ejections in Game 1 they were just having fun and trash-talking in the heat of the playoffs.

Raptors all-star forward Kawhi Leonard had 25 points, but he missed a crucial three-pointer that could have given the Raptors the win.

It was a tremendous moral victory for the BrooklynNets to qualify for the playoffs this season after having not made it for a few years. And the Philadelphia 76ers were -7.5 but lost at home to the Brooklyn Nets, 111-102. Caris LeVert helped the Nets outscore Philadelphia's reserves by a 59-26 margin by adding 23 points. His 64 games played marked a personal high in a young career that's been marred by injuries. He's been at the center of fans' boos in the past while he was still playing with the Timberwolves after demanding a trade. Star point guard Ben Simmons had a awful 9 points and 3 assists in 32 minutes. All in all it was a terrible performance and the 76ers were never really in the game. The Clippers found some success running the pick-and-roll with Williams and Harrell, specifically when DeMarcus Cousins was in the game, so they may look to get back to that more in Game 2.
