Celtics Players Reportedly Pissed At Embiid For Walking Off Court

There are possessions you would like to have back.

Eventually, the Celtics are going to be a juggernaut, a team easily despised across National Basketball Association fandom for the way they pulled together a "superteam" anchored by Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, both of whom were acquired last summer.

For that, more than one kind of bad dream continues.

The Philadelphia 76ers' exciting season came to a close on Wednesday when they were eliminated from the playoffs by the Boston Celtics in Game 5, but despite the crushing loss, there is reason for hope in Philly.

"He is really good".

Embiid, for what it's worth, praised the Celtics in his post-game press conference. "How long that lasts, I don't know, but I feel I can play at a high level for another five years".

Jaylen Brown, a decade Horford's junior and yet similarly articulate and understated, sat to Horford's right on the postgame podium and followed his lead.

"It is something me and Coach haven't discussed yet", the rookie point guard said Thursday in a media availability during the team's exit interviews. "The offensive rebounds were enormous for them, just the extra possessions". He was 1 for 6 on threes.

It's wise advice, especially - sarcasm alert - coming from a coach who couldn't even muster a single Coach of the Year vote from his peers. He said of summer-league play: "Whatever will help me get better this year, that is all I am looking forward to". And then we changed it and we wanted to get the third seed.

This provided the 76ers with a chance to win with a desperation 3-pointer. Look for the Sixers to be in the mix for some hot free agent battles to find someone that can help them take the next step toward a championship.

Next season, they'll most likely make changes to their lineup given the amount of cap space they have available.

He also added, "I think there's something to be said for continuity". "This is Game 7". Only four players on each side remain from that series.

It was a performance that might be overlooked given all of the other insane developments, but it should not be. "And hopefully we keep playing well".

"Think you have to play with a chip but you have to play with poise". Now he's out there doing the same things that put Paul Pierce's No. 34 in the rafters.

Players said the mentalist executed some card tricks and mind-reading exercises after the team ate together on the eve of Game 5 of its Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Boston Celtics. "He's got a package that he shouldn't at such a young age", Brown said of Tatum, whom the Celtics selected with a draft pick they acquired in a trade with Philadelphia.
