Embiid Takes Positives Following 76ers' Playoff Defeat

Terry Rozier on Game 5 vs. Sixers: 'We've gotta be the harder playing team' WATCH: Former Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart seals win for Celtics

The Boston Celtics missed out on their chance to sweep the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the NBA Playoffs on Monday. We've got a bright future. "I think mentally I was thinking too much, overthinking the plays".

Baynes, the Celtics' starting centre, has been a rock for his team, putting his body on the line battling the 76ers' All-Star centre Joel Embiid while averaging seven points and six rebounds per game. We've gotta learn from it.

While the Cleveland Cavaliers - the favorites to beat the Celtics and go to the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive season - still might represent "the now" as it relates to the NBA landscape, in large because LeBron James remains the best player on the planet, Boston and Philadelphia both are on the rise.

There were high hopes for the 76ers heading into the National Basketball Association playoffs after a campaign that yielded 52 victories in the regular season and a first playoff series win since 2012 - a round-one triumph against the Miami Heat.

Bank of England keeps rates unchanged
At its meeting ending on 9 May 2018, the MPC voted by a majority of 7-2 to maintain Bank Rate at 0.5%. These projections are conditioned on a gently rising path for Bank Rate over the next three years.


"We have a game plan that we are confident in", 76ers coach Brett Brown said after Wednesday's morning shootaround.

"I feel like this season was kind of like a success", Embiid said. In addition to Embiid, Simmons and 2017 No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz, Philadelphia could have $25 million in projected cap space this summer if it renounces the rights to free agents Redick, Ersan Ilyasova, Marco Belinelli and Amir Johnson.

So the Sixers should have plenty of opportunities to improve in the next few offseasons. Peak Embiid. The only thing lacking was a 3-pointer, but he finished with 27 points (9-for-18 shooting), 12 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 blocks in his best performance of the postseason.

Tip off is in Boston on Wednesday (Thursday 10am AEST). "I felt like I had (a) lot more to go".
