Game of Phones: 76ers get blown call on bench in blowout

Game of Phones: 76ers get blown call on bench in blowout”

Johnson showed Embiid whatever message was on the phone and then slid it into the pocket of his warmup trousers.

Despite appearing to have a huge advantage over their rivals on paper, the Sixers realize the last thing they can do is underestimate the Nets, especially since the two teams split the four-game series during the regular season.

Joel Embiid defended Johnson, saying his teammate was checking up on his sick daughter.

Johnson issued an apology a few hours after the team's 111-102 loss.

"I take full responsibility and will accept the consequences of my actions".

Johnson was not active for the game, but still isn't allowed to have his phone during a game. The rule book, under the "Use of Technology" section, says violations will "result in substantial fines and/or suspensions". He did not disclose the amount.

Tomorrow's game will go down in Philly at 2:30 P.M. EST.

"We'll adjust if he doesn't play", Atkinson said.

Sixers superstar Joel Embiid, who was questionable with a troubling knee injury, was able to play in Game 1 and scored 24 points in 22 minutes, but aside from Jimmy Butler, almost every Sixers player struggled in Game 1.
