76ers star (knee) 'questionable' for Game 2 vs. Nets

Apart from that Jimmy Butler absolutely balled out for the Sixers but pretty much everyone else stalled.

Their one-point halftime lead grew into a 29-point advantage heading into the fourth quarter - a lead that they would not surrender.

Just four minutes into the third quarter, the Sixers used a 21-2 run to build a 20-point lead, prompting Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson to call for a timeout.

The young Brooklyn trio combined for 67 points, despite Russell, posting a +/- of -10.

D'Angelo Russell scored 26 points to lead Brooklyn to the victory.

COUSINS' NEXT CHANCE: DeMarcus Cousins fouled out of his playoff debut after a nine-year wait, so the big man will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing playoff opener in which he had nine points, nine rebounds and four assists. He remains central to everything the Nets do and capable of finding his own shots. I guarantee if we're winning they're not booing. Point guard Ben Simmons can't hit an outside jumper, so he's mostly a non-factor. This is not the first time.

"If you're going to boo, stay on that side".

It's amusing, Embiid seemed quiet in his 12 first-half minutes, but had 10 points and five boards.

"Every game is different too", Stephen Curry said, "so who knows what will happen Game 2 and beyond". Redick if he heats up is the best shooter Philly have.

"I'm sure I'm going to look back on it and be extremely happy with how far we've come, that we won our first playoff game".

"I was just trying to be me", Simmons said. This is just me doubling down on that prediction and going all in on it. "I love it, that's how Philly is".

DeMarre Carroll is a less fancy option compared to Caris LeVert but LeVert has a habit of blowing hot and cold.

Playoff Jimmy Butler is back.

Embiid said Johnson received an update on a sick daughter. That was their most all season and tied a franchise playoff high also done on April 27, 1989, at Utah in the first round.

The Sixers' starting point guard also went 2-2 on shots from 10 feet or more, which isn't particularly impressive for most players, but was an encouraging sight for Simmons, as he's typically been relegated to scoring exclusively in the paint.

The Sixers look their best when Simmons is in attack mode and the Aussie found his way to the basket at will early in this one, forcing the Nets' defence to collapse on him at the basket, but there wasn't much they could do to stop him. While he isn't a fancy option for the game, he is cheap and is guaranteed to get minutes for his defense.

Both teams are in this position after what unfolded in Brooklyn's 111-102 win on Saturday afternoon.

I have a feeling Embiid will be given a rest today. Getting solid backup center minutes from him will be huge for the Sixers.

Embiid played decent, but was quite inefficient.
