76ers face off-season of uncertainty after stunning Game 7 loss

76ers face off-season of uncertainty after stunning Game 7 loss

The normally wisecracking Joel Embiid wasn't in the mood to deliver quips after the Philadelphia 76ers was sent packing by the Toronto Raptors in their hotly-contested Game 7 Eastern Conference Semi-Finals matchup by a Kawhi Leonard game-winner. They shot 54 percent for the game with the trio of Embiid, Butler, Simmons combining for 73 points. The Raptors will face the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals, with Game 1 set to take place at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee on Wednesday, May 15th at 8:30p.m. ET on TNT.

But this Philadelphia team have proved they have plenty of fight and Game 7 will undoubtedly be a closely fought affair. "So I got to look out for it, but that's definitely, this one and in the one in Brooklyn that I feel like I didn't deserve".

Danny Green led the way shooting a career-best 46 per cent from three in the regular season.

"He's a phenomenal shooter", Nurse said. "He was on the glass, offensive rebounds, defensive rebounds, making things hard".

The NBA has got the drama on Mothers' Day, but what is it going to take to win those games? Pascal Siakam was solid with 21 points, but Kyle Lowry had just 13 points and Marc Gasol added only seven points and three rebounds in 36 minutes of action.

"Defence was the key, man", Ibaka said. To help our guys, to tell them the truth when things aren't going the way that we want, and to steady the ship. Given how the star power seems to cancel out, expect Game 7 to be decided by a third option or role player who steps up. "So, I would expect the best players to play absolutely as many minutes as they possibly can all the way through until it's decided".

Lowry was standing in the opposite corner at the time, but was somehow one of the first Raptors players to make it over to Leonard. You've got to continue to grow whether you like how it's going or not.

"It just does a lot". How we responded, I liked that. And now we're 3-3.

The 76ers are sixth in the postseason in scoring offense as they average 110.4 points per game. "It wasn't scripted. I'm sure if you asked him, he's probably shot that shot a million times". You can't let your nerves get the best of you. "Just go play basketball", he said.

Sixers head coach Brett Brown on wanting to be done with this series: "To say you don't wake up a few times in the middle of the night and think about something would not be true (before Game 7)". The 76ers posted a monstrous 39-percent offensive rebounding rate in that game. Things like the iPhone, Facebook, YouTube, iPod, driverless cars, wireless headsets, Blu-ray discs, the Xbox, Blackberry hand-held devices, Wii, Google Maps, streaming services, the completion of The Human Genome Project and much more. The Raptors will now square off against Giannis Antetokounmpo in the Eastern Conference finals, and the Larry O'Brien Trophy is just eight wins away. He spoke for the team in that it's got greater goals in mind. The Sixers went all-in on the season, and it feels like anything short of an Eastern Conference Finals appearance would be disappointing, considering the Sixers were also knocked out in the second round past year. "We knew what was at stake".
