Ben Simmons hits out at the boo-boys after shock 76ers loss

Ben Simmons hits out at the boo-boys after shock 76ers loss”

"We've been in high pressure situations and won some games".

NEED TO KNOW: Patrick Beverley and Kevin Durant insisted after their ejections in Game 1 they were just having fun and trash-talking in the heat of the playoffs. Philadelphia has had problems defending pick-and-rolls with guards, and Kenny Atkinson game planned for that perfectly. We might lose, but you're alive - buy three more days.

Jimmy Butler was Philadelphia's best player in the opener. They are better both in dimes made (26.8 to 23.7) and in boards grabbed (47.8 to 46.6), while both teams are equal in turnovers committed (14.4 each). "Yes, I'm emotional about it, happy about it, but just got to put that in a little closet or little drawer until after the season". Both were key contributors in Game 1, with Davis going for 12 points and 16 rebounds. For the Nuggets, Jokic had a great start to his playoff career as he got a triple double with 10 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists. The 102.0 points per game they scored in their final 11 games was the second-worst in the National Basketball Association. Jamal Murray, who was having an incredible 4 quarter, had a wide open 15 foot jump shot for the lead but he just missed it. They could not find the right defensive lineups, and they struggled to grab rebounds and get stops in the game's biggest moments.

This win was head coach Greg Popovich's 1,413, including the post season and regular season.

NBA Betting Verdict: Brooklyn thoroughly deserved to win game 1. You think these two are the first people to ever use their phones while at work when they are not supposed to? He logged 39 minutes and shot lights out.

A last-gasp three-pointer from DJ Augustin helped the Orlando Magic beat The Toronto Raptors 104-101.

For the Raptors, superstar Kawhi Leonard scored 25 points, Pascal Siakam scored 24, while starting point-guard and All-Star Kyle Lowry racked up nil in 34 minutes of action.

The Los Angeles Lakers' senior management has plans to travel East to meet with Philadelphia 76ers assistant Monty Williams between Games 2 and 3 of the Sixers' playoff series, league sources told ESPN.

Back in the postseason for the first time since 2015, the Brooklyn Nets defended well, produced plenty of offense and flustered the Philadelphia 76ers at times in Game 1. His 64 games played marked a personal high in a young career that's been marred by injuries. PF Tobias Harris was the game's biggest disappointment as he finished with just four points on 2-for-7 from the field.

Looking back at game one, it seemed that early foul trouble to Jarrett Allen could doom the Nets.
