Brooklyn Nets: Two keys to coming out on top over Philly
16 April, 2019, 12:40 | Author: Brenda Erickson
PHILADELPHIA 76ERS 102-111 BROOKLYN NETS D'Angelo Russell flashed some postseason magic, playing like the All-Star leader Brooklyn needed with 26 points, and Caris LeVert scored 23 to lead the Nets to an impressive 111-102 win on Saturday over the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.
Not a banner day in South Philly.
The Magic did win 11 of their final 13 contests to end the season but I'm not expecting them to win this series.
"First, I'm so with you on Jimmy, like that was the adult in the room". I say, who could actually care?

Even for the most level-headed and optimistic, it's fair to be a little concerned. With question marks over Embiid's health, winning this series might just end being a lot more hard than what most 76ers fans would've imagined at the end of the regular season.
Brooklyn got off to a strong start against the heavily favored 76ers and didn't look back. He tried a knee brace during his pregame warm-up, but decided against wearing it during the game, saying it caused pain in his calf.
Lightning star Nikita Kucherov suspended one game
After a league-leading 128 points in the regular season, Kucherov has been held pointless through two games versus Columbus. But the Lighting couldn't muster any more, and Atkinson connected on an empty-netter with a minute left in the game.
"Whenever I'm out there, I kind of forget about the pain and just try and do the right things", Embiid said.
Saturday's game made Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich the winningest coach in National Basketball Association history, as he saw his 1,413th victory, both regular season and playoffs combined. Because of that fatigue, he often settled for jumpers instead of continuing to get to the line like he did to start the game. Tobias Harris played the most minutes for the team but only scored 4 points during his 40 minutes of action.

"Jimmy did a great job [Saturday] attacking". "But it was important for him to get his feet wet and feel the playoffs, feel the energy, and I have no doubt he'll come back and play a lot better in Game 2". What he does on offense with his shot-making and movement away from the ball opens everything up for his teammates. Game 2 was much different, as the raucous crowd had plenty to cheer about. Embiid tallied a game-high 23 points (8-12 fg, 7-8 ft) and 10 rebounds, en route to a plus-26 rating in less than 21 minutes. That's big progress for us.
Ben Simmons had a bad game 1 and all the flaws in his game were exposed.
The defense was a huge key for Brooklyn in the opening game, as they held Philly below 30 points in all four quarters while going for 30+ in three quarters themselves.
Whatever the message was at halftime, it definitely worked. You can only see it at SportsLine. After showing Embiid something on his phone, Johnson put it into the pocket of his warm-ups.
