Ben Simmons: 'If You're Going to Boo, Then Stay on That Side'

Ben Simmons: 'If You're Going to Boo, Then Stay on That Side'

Turns out, the concerns with the Sixers were accurate after watching Brett Brown's team suffer a brutal 111-102 loss to the Nets in Game 1 of the first round on Saturday, putting plenty of extra pressure on the team heading into Monday's contest.

The Nets had to rely on their bench early and often as the starters struggled to contain Joel Embiid in the paint during the first few minutes of action. But they needed someone to step up and be the focal point of the offense, and D'Angelo Russell was more than happy to comply. But the Nets also have reserve guards Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert to thank for the win as well.

Philadelphia staged several rallies throughout the game. Jimmy Butler scored 36 points and saved the Sixers, widely considered a favorite to at least reach the East semis, from losing by 25.

Team-mate Joel Embiid was reluctant to criticise the fanbase but says he can understand why some players would take exception.

In our Game 1 preview, in which we did have the Nets covering (but not winning), it was mentioned that the Nets did have the deeper team.

In reality , it would've been a much closer game had Stephen Curry not erupted for 38 points. Durant laughed at Beverley's taunts.

"I really want to sweep it under the rug, and that's that", Johnson said. The Raptors are 2-14 in playoff openers.

They went up by 17, saw the Sixers cut it to eight at halftime and two early in the third quarter. Durant caused a ton of matchup nightmares before he and Patrick Beverley were tossed. Point guard Ben Simmons can't hit an outside jumper, so he's mostly a non-factor. Rivers settled on Beverley, but Durant still put up 23 points. Russell proved his All-Star self, leading the Nets with 26 points and four assists.

The San Antonio Spurs - 7th seed in the Western Conference - defeated 2nd-seeded Denver Nuggets 101-96 to get the home court advantage. He averaged 7.4 points per game over the regular season.

White looked poised as he scored in a variety of ways - drives, mid-range jumpers and three-pointers, and who could forget the slam over Paul Millsap. Embiid's last game prior to Game 1 was on April 6 against the Bulls. Sixers have better percentages both in field goals (47% to 44.8%) and in 3-pointers (35.7% to 35.4%).

He knows that to succeed in this series, he needs to have a different mindset. Rudy Gay also chipped in 14 points off the bench. It's either find a way to give him help so he can jog back on defense or watch the same scenario play out Monday.
