Philadelphia 76ers roundtable: First round series predictions vs. Brooklyn Nets

Adjust Comment Print

Joel Embiid #21 of the Philadelphia 76ers reacts during a game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden on October 16, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. "I also apologize to my teammates, the 76ers organization and the fans for the distraction this has caused". Brooklyn isn't the team with a second star like Ben Simmons who plays guard in the best basketball league in the world, yet is 0-for-17 for his career from beyond the 3-point line.

The Sixers made the easy call and fined Johnson an unspecified amount for conduct detrimental to the team.

Brown said he would deal with Johnson, but he declined to address any specific discipline.

After the contest, 76ers coach Brett Brown commented on the situation, telling reporters "it's completely unacceptable".

Sixers starters Simmons, Tobias Harris and JJ Redick combined to shoot 11 of 31 from the floor for 18 points. "I think he's more aware of what to expect". Without him, the Sixers might simply not be able to keep up with the Nets' offense. "I'm focused on the Brooklyn Nets".

"I love Jo for going out there and competing", Butler said. I've never said anything about them. As Embiid loves to say "trust the process".

The Sixers were without Embiid to start their first-round series against the Miami Heat past year, too, as he recovered from a facial injury. Simmons, a first-time All-Star, missed four of five shots and scored only two points.

It's a long series and despite giving up home-court advantage, Butler showed that he can be the dynamic player Philadelphia is hoping he'll be for their playoff run. And it seems as if the fans are getting exhausted of him not showing up when it counts.
