Embiid was more forgiving: "It's understandable; they come in, they pay a lot of money, they want the game to be entertaining ..."

The sixth-seeded Nets turned Philly in the city of 20,000 boos-and that's just counting the ones echoing throughout the Wells Fargo Center-as they smoked a Sixers team that resembled one straight out of the early Process era.

76ers: The Sixers have turned things around quickly - very quickly. Embiid was doubtful coming into the game with a knee injury, but he ultimately started and played. They both became enraged again and official Ed Malloy immediately sent them both to the locker room.

Sixers general manager Elton Brand told reporters before Wednesday's season finale against the Chicago Bulls that it was "possible" Embiid wouldn't be ready for the beginning of the team's postseason run.

Ben Simmons in game one against the Nets. This is the playoffs, I expect him to play.
