Embiid in starting lineup for 76ers in Game 1 against Nets

Joel Embiid At Risk Of Missing Game 1 Of The NBA Playoffs: Report

Philadelphia 76ers fans booed their team throughout an ugly loss to the Brooklyn Nets in Game 1 of their National Basketball Association playoff series Saturday afternoon, as D'Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert powered the Nets to a statement victory. Johnson was caught on ESPN cameras on a cell phone, showing Sixers center Joel Embiid what appeared to be a text message during a game in which the Sixers were trailing.

Embiid's status is one of the biggest key factors in the postseason.

In the final minutes of the game, Brooklyn holds a 13-point lead.

Things don't get much easier as they prepare to play the mighty Sixers in the first round, but throughout the season, these teams are evenly matched.

Brown said he would deal with Johnson, but he declined to address any specific discipline.


At least there's always Game 2, right? Unfortunately, they're still unsure if Embiid will be able to play on Saturday.

And if the Sixers don't go deep, what does that mean for their coach Brett Brown? He scored 22 points-including 12 free throws-and had 15 rebounds.

While most fans didn't expect the Nets to be competing for a spot in the playoffs, the 76ers were seen as one of the favorites to win the Eastern Conference with LeBron James leaving for the Los Angeles Lakers. "You know. You learn quickly in the NBA Playoffs that the first kind of open look you got, is going probably going to be your best look".

Nets: C Jarrett Allen was whistled for fouls on Philadelphia's first two possessions. Team owner Josh Harris said both players could be resigned. "I'm focused on the Brooklyn Nets".

"I'll point exclusively to fatigue", Brown said.
