The Ben Simmons question resurfaces right away in this year’s playoffs

Ben Simmons #25 of the Philadelphia 76ers goes up to dunk the ball against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on November 7, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana. "We are moving forward together with our focus now on Game 2".

Harris said Brown was a "great coach" but fell well short of giving him a vote of confidence.

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown called Johnson's actions "completely unacceptable".

Johnson was inactive. Embiid, who was listed as doubtful heading into the game, started and had 22 points and 15 rebounds.

Butler scored a game-high 36 points to lead the Sixers.

The roster looks much different this time around, of course, as the Sixers have significantly reshuffled the roster in acquiring two All-Star-caliber players in Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.

Embiid said the voracious booing that was largely absent during the dark days of the Sixers 10-win season was tough to hear. However, the Sixers also have one of the league's least productive benches, while the Nets are on the opposite end of that spectrum and have the second-best bench in the entire National Basketball Association in terms of points per game. He missed all five 3s in the half - and the Sixers missed their first 11.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Stephen Curry scored 38 points and made eight 3-pointers to give him the most in postseason history, and top-seeded Golden State began its quest for a three-peat by running away from frustrated Los Angeles in their playoff opener on a night tempers flared. Dinwiddie and DeMarre Carroll hit consecutive 3s during a 12-0 run.

Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley get ejected in Warriors' Game 1 win
On Saturday, his job was to annoy Kevin Durant , and while Durant had 23 points on 8-for-16 shooting, Beverley still had some fun. Beverley immediately jumped to his feet to confront Durant as official Ed Malloy got between them and immediately ejected them.


While he came out of the gates strong - Embiid attempted seven free throws in his first four-minute stint and drew two crucial fouls on Nets starting centre Jarrett Allen - he quickly cooled off. This is the epitome of spoiled, and 76ers fans really ought to know better.

Philly, we need to talk.

Well, the Brooklyn Nets have done the unthinkable.
