Sixers want to be more physical vs. Nets in Game 2

Sixers-Nets by the numbers Philly’s three-point shooting in NBA playoff opener was historically bad

A salty Sixers team even warned them.

His status again remains up in the air for Game 2, so we're going to take a look at Embiid's injury outlook along with the Sixers roster and starting lineup for Game 2.

Philadelphia may have the second-best starting five in the National Basketball Association behind Golden State, but the Sixers aren't going very far if superstar centre Joel Embiid isn't 100 per cent - and he's clearly not right now as he battles through a knee injury.

The Nets weren't favored to win the first game, but they still did it anyway. "I'd classify it as extreme physicality", coach Kenny Atkinson said. We did a good job of holding the fort in the first half. "You're afraid with this crowd, and the team they have, that they're going to knock you out of the box quick". They threw a couple punches.

Orlando got out to an impressive first-half lead, but saw it dissolve in an instant. The deficit reached 29 after three quarters and 32 in the fourth. Harris had a brutal end to the season, but I still think he can produce once he gets out of his own way. They have now lost and failed to cover in five of their last seven games coming into today. Superstar center Joel Embiid was limited to just 24 minutes of action where he scored 22 points and grabbed 15 rebounds but he made only 5 of his 15 shots. "If you are a Sixers fan and going to boo, stay on that side". He finished with a triple-double (18 points, 12 assists and 10 boards) and cupped his ear to the applause like Allen Iverson, who was seated courtside, used to. "I also apologise to my team-mates, the 76ers organisation and the fans for the distraction this has caused". "I thought Joel's lack of playing and his inevitable lack of conditioning, which is connected, didn't let us try to go to him as much as I wished in just basic paint touches".

It was a complete caning handed out by Philadelphia. The unsafe trio of D'Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert combined to shoot 24 of 57 (42 percent). But they were the only Nets regulars to acquit themselves well.

"We all understand there is zero place for that in our league or our organization", Brown said. "We were below average quite honestly".

Perhaps more than anything else, the Sixers locked down on D. At no point did their intensity pay greater dividends than the start of the third quarter. He also went on a personal 5-0 run to seal the deal for his team down the stretch on the road.

Joe Harris heated up in the first quarter and made 3 threes but cooled down a bit as the game progressed with Nets finding better opportunities right at the rim. They delivered, and then some, checking just about every box on the list of areas they were hoping to improve. "Yes, I'm emotional about it, happy about it, but just got to put that in a little closet or little drawer until after the season".
