76ers' Joel Embiid on Playing Status for Game 1 vs. Nets: 'I Have No Idea'
During a replay of Embiid on the bench, he was caught looking at his cell phone with backup center Amir Johnson. The Sixers' vaunted starting lineup of Embiid, Butler, Harris, JJ Redick and Ben Simmons has only technically played in 10 games together.
Embiid was introduced to a roaring standing ovation and heard chants of "MVP!" and "Trust the Process" when he opened the game with two free throws. Without him, the Sixers might simply not be able to keep up with the Nets' offense.
Philadelphia 76ers forward Tobias Harris entered the playoffs on an 11 game slump where he shot just 22.9 percent from deep. Even before the No. 6-seeded Nets upset the No. 3-seeded Sixers, a Brooklyn player told ESPN before the game that he liked his team's chances because, "All the pressure's on them". He buried a 3 at the horn to send the Sixers into the break down 62-54. I've never said anything about them. However, this is now going on 12 games where he hasn't looked like himself and this is the worst time to go through something like this. "[The team is] going to do whatever they can as far as getting me ready and healthy, but if my body doesn't respond based on the pain level, there's really nothing you can do".
Nets: C Jarrett Allen was whistled for fouls on Philadelphia's first two possessions. Not to mention Jimmy Butler, his notoriously competitive teammate. Harris said Brown was a "great coach" but fell well short of giving him a vote of confidence.
