Joel Embiid Gets Trolled After Being Dunked On By Jaylen Brown

  • Joel Embiid: Celtics vs Sixers Isn’t A Rivalry, “They Always Kick Our Ass”

He has also worked on his free-throw stroke. If he continues to be assertive, the league will be in trouble. Joel Embiid was 1-4.

But the ball deflected off Embiid's hands, off the glass and in the basket. "For whatever reason, we weren't where we needed to be, and that was good to see".

If Brown sticks with the plan he originally outlined and makes it a priority to use Fultz as much as possible as a point guard, he should get more of the "incredible" Fultz and less of the passive kid reluctant to shoot outside the paint.

Marcus Morris added 16 points and 10 rebounds off the bench.

Dario wasn't effectiveDario picked up quick fouls and never got in to a rhythm.

Celtics center Aron Baynes was 2 for 4 from 3-point land. If the sixers are to do anything, Saric needs to be on the floor and playing effectively.

Irving missed all eight of his first-half field-goal attempts.

That's why some players will be looking to get off to hot starts. For the first 24 minutes it appeared as if both teams were still in preseason form.

It wasn't patched until last month, after the company's engineers noticed some unusual activity that turned out to be the attack. The attackers wrote a computer code that crawled the compromised pages and copied information, which is known as "scraping".

While it's anyone's guess how Fultz's game will adjust to playing off-ball nearly exclusively, and if his recently repaired shot is up for the rigors of life on the wings, but this move clearly makes both the first and second team offense better and could result in some interesting lineups throughout the game.

"Part of it is just having patience and realizing it's not all going to come at once", he said. He didn't play poorly, but he didn't play very well either.

In the Sixers' 105-87 loss (see observations), Fultz posted five points on 2 for 7 shooting with three rebounds, two assists and three turnovers. It's always been on defense, but even more now I feel like I've got to make sure that I'm there and active. "I thought about maybe not doing any lobs or back door plays this game".

The Sixers were abysmal from deep against the Celtics, shooting a paltry 5-26 (19.2 percent) from beyond the arc.

Oklahoma City is without star Russell Westbrook for their 2018-19 season opener while he recovers from surgery. However, he had a game to forget as nothing went right for the 2016 National Basketball Association champ.

Certainly, there is proximity and familiarity between the Celtics and Sixers, and those are two key elements of any sporting rivalry. The Celtics played with a lot of energy at the end of the game and the Sixers looked resigned to losing the game.

This is not really a concern for the Celtics because we all know the kind of player that he is and since this is only his first game since the surgery, things are expected to be just fine.

By pairing McConnell, a pass-first point with a pesky defensive game with a certified dead-eyed sharpshooter like Redick, the second team will be able to maintain a fairly traditional lineup, with no player playing too far out of their typical position.
