Aron Baynes Recaps Facing Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers

Aron Baynes Recaps Facing Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers”

The players are in different roles than they'd been in for much of the season.

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid has yet to back down from any trash talk with his peers, whether it is on the court or over the web. Boston defended the perimeter extremely well, thus limiting Belinelli's game.

Already down on the court, Embiid slammed his hands on the floor in disbelief and let his 7-foot-2 body fall prostrate.

The Celtics defeated the 76ers 114-112 in game five of their NBA Eastern conference play-off semi-finals series.

With mere seconds left to play in the 2017-2018 National Basketball Association season, Embiid ditched his cumbersome mask, and gave the team his all on the final drive of the game, even with the everpresent risk of potentially reinjuring his orbital bone, or worse, potentially going blind in the process. Smooth jumpers, graceful finishes around the rim, protecting the paint on defense. Ben Simmons added 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists while teammate Dario Saric had 27 points and 10 rebounds.

So, maybe the Sixers come back even stronger.

They also must replace Redick, either by re-signing him or by finding another shooter of his caliber.

This provided the 76ers with a chance to win with a desperation 3-pointer. But the ending was unforgettable for a better reason for one young Sixers die-hard. "You've got to get better and look ahead now".

Before we get to the not so good, it would be silly not to mention T.J. McConnell's impact on the final two games of the series against Boston.

"We definitely have more to show".

Freeman, who is from New Hampshire, is still trusting the process and says wait until next year.

"Coming into this building, arena the fans are unbelievable here", Simmons said. And then it was the 50 wins. "We're going to be fine". "We got a lot of talented guys; we didn't play our best. We didn't make it, but the whole season we changed the goals we set at the beginning of the season".

"Gotta give them a lot of respect", Embiid said, according to Jared Weiss of The Athletic. "I think historically, if you look at our league, I think there's probably some truth to the idea of learning through failure before you have the "aha" breakthrough".
