Celtics Players Reportedly Pissed At Embiid For Walking Off Court

Joel Embiid said what everyone else has been thinking Wednesday night after the Boston Celtics knocked off the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 5 of their second-round playoff series to advance to the Eastern Conference finals. The future in Philadelphia is bright, which this could mark just the beginning of several trips to the playoffs where they could be in contention for an National Basketball Association title. "I feel like I had a lot more to go". I think we've just got to go in, focus, lock in and handle business. Despite numerous times in which it seemed like the Sixers were going to pull through with the big win, the Celtics still found ways to come back, and as a result will go on to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.

After the game, Philadelphia head coach Brett Brown said he wasn't ready to reflect on anything the Sixers might have accomplished during the season. "And for the next decade, we're going to have a lot of fun battles".

"Coming into this building and arena the fans are wonderful here", Simmons said.

Many NBA teams would love to have that two-man foundation, and Philly is also waiting on a No. 1 overall pick in Markelle Fultz. Smart will most likely be matched up against LeBron James on defense.

So the Sixers should have plenty of opportunities to improve in the next few offseasons.

Tip off is in Boston on Wednesday (Thursday 10am AEST).

"The feeling right now is I didn't want to be done", said Simmons, who finished an uneven series with 18 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists in Game 5.

The franchise center said he and Simmons "have a lot of room to grow", and referenced the beginning of the Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook era in Oklahoma City as an example of how two young talents can reshape an organization.
