Notable Quotes from Sixers vs. Celtics

Jimmy Butler On working with the unit… I’m good, I think we’re all in a good place. We’re out there just having fun, just hooping. Obviously it’s more fun to win than to lose. I think everyone’s in a good spot. On evolving into the closer… They put the ball in my hands in the fourth and tell me to make plays and make shots. I think as of lately I‘ve been doing a good job of that, but that could be anybody to tell you the truth. With as many weapons that we have on this team, anybody can get the hot hand, anybody can put the ball in the basket. Just, the last few nights have...

Jimmy Butler and Ben Simmons lead 76ers by Celtics 108-105 with late buckets

Joel Embiid — 37 points, 22 rebounds and four assists — broke through his Boston struggles with some help from his friends. Aron Baynes injured, Marcus Smart ejected in the loss.
