Ben Simmons gives jersey to young fan after game

Ben Simmons gives jersey to young fan after game

The hard-nosed 6-5 wing player out of Texas Tech has an National Basketball Association game.

"He does some pretty incredible stuff", guard T.J.

It was quite a response for one player achieving one triple-double in a rout of a final game of the season. That reason: It was honest. "I'm ecstatic, it's about time", Patel said. Embiid missed the layup, tried a tip-in that missed and, when he came back down with the rebound, was stripped by Celtics guard Terry Rozier and lost the ball out of bounds. After returning from England, they finish 33-10 overall, including 16 straight wins to end the regular season.

Brown plans on keeping McConnell for the starting lineup. "There hasn't been (an off-season) I haven't gotten better at something".

"It's a free group", Brown said. "He is an awesome teammate, a genuinely good person. Incredibly supportive. Whatever it takes to win".

"I mean the play unfolded, and I mean the refs, they had a great game, I thought they were great tonight", Embiid said after the game that saw the Celtics advance to play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals.

They're here. Not the path they'd have preferred. Playing in Philly is its own experience. "I drone on about it, but I'm a big believer in it and it's defintely gotten us to this point". I think I dealt with it fine.

"Things haven't always gone our way, but these guys are really talented, they're really tough, they fit Boston", said Boston coach Brad Stevens. But among the tricks of successful coaching is winning the locker room. "We committed a lot of mistakes, we all learn from it but we definitely have more to show". Before that, the Sixers had made a decision to give McConnell the backup point-guard minutes over Fultz. Yet, in Sixers character, that was not an issue. "I just appreciate them, and I know we all do".

So what about the other No. 1 pick?

The Sixers have spent five years inching to the brink of contention. But they won Game 4 and had a 107-103 lead with 2:01 left in Game 5.

They did, which makes this offseason about as key as any in recent 76ers history for team president Bryan Colangelo. Some players could bump into free agency. It's all in the plan. So fortunately enough, if the Phillys can beat the Celtics in Game 5 of their second-round series on Wednesday night, they'd be able to hop an inch closer to their target.

It doesn't work that way forever.
