76ers drop 51 points in the third quarter and tie the series at one apiece, 145-123

PHILADELPHIA, P.A. — “I guarantee Game Two you’ll see Superman Joel [Embiid]. I just know it,” said Kenny Atkinson after Brooklyn took down the Sixers in Game One. He spoke it into existence. Literally. Embiid scored 11 points in the midst of a 21-2 Philadelphia run to start the second half. He finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds in 21 minutes. The Nets trailed 65-64 at half. By time Embiid and the Sixers’ run was over, the Nets trailed by 20. Here’s the thing, though. Embiid absolutely clocked Jarrett Allen with an elbow that probably should’ve been a flagrant two....

Is Sixers’ Brett Brown coaching for his job in these playoffs?

When the Philadelphia 76ers hired Brett Brown as their head coach back in 2013, patience was the name of the game. “The Process” was still in the early stages at that time. Joel Embiid was still in college. Ben Simmons was in high school. The Sixers’ roster featured an unenviable cast of characters that even […] The post Is Sixers’ Brett Brown coaching for his job in these playoffs? appeared first on ClutchPoints.

James Ennis has been cleared and is available to play tonight

James Ennis has been cleared and is available to play tonight

The Sixers have received plenty of bad news recently with the aggravation of a left knee injury to their superstar Joel Embiid. This time they get a bit of good news. Per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, James Ennis is available to play tonight in game 2 against the Brooklyn Nets. Trailing 1-0 in the best of 7 game series, the Sixers’ rotation was already dangerously thin. It didn’t help when Ennis injured his quad with a contusion weeks ago. To make matters worse he aggravated the injury and missed even more time. But the perimeter player acquired in a trade around the...

The Sixers need to shut down Joel Embiid...at least for round 1

The Sixers need to shut down Joel Embiid...at least for round 1

This pains me to write but it does feels right. Joel Embiid just isn’t healthy and it’s not worth pushing the “crown jewel” of the franchise through the rest of this first round against the Brooklyn Nets in his current condition. I understand the context. Fans had legitimate hopes for a title run. All year long we had an MVP candidate and a Defensive Player of the Year Candidate and a First-Team All NBA starter in Embiid. He was routinely dominating offensively and holding together a shaky defense with his sheer will and other-worldly combination of size, timing and agility. The...

Three adjustments for the Sixers to counter with in game 2

Three adjustments for the Sixers to counter with in game 2

It was a rough showing yesterday. Joel Embiid did not look right. This is a guy who scored 38 points and 13 rebounds in just 28 minutes when the Sixers met the Nets a couple of weeks ago. And you could see he was hurting although he gutted his way to a huge defensive performance. As of now the Vegas line for game 2 is Philadelphia favored by 7.5. Maybe they know something I don’t but it seems a bit high, especially given the chance Joel sits. But let’s get into a couple of things they can improve upon to get the win tomorrow. 1) Jimmy in the flow There was speculation that Jimmy...

Ed Davis a ‘game-changer’ against 76ers

Ed Davis a ‘game-changer’ against 76ers

It shouldn’t have surprised anyone —other than 76ers fans, perhaps— that Ed Davis was going to be a big part of this series. The best back-up center in the NBA came into the game early, stayed late and had a monster game against Joel Embiid and Boban Marjanović. The final tab: 12 points, 16 rebounds (tying his regular season high) and a +28 plus/minus, best in the game. “Game changer,” Kenny Atkinson said post-game. “I thought Jarrett (Allen) obviously got in foul trouble, and Ed was the key. He really gave us the physicality we needed and obviously the rebounds. He did a...
