Crazy TD Garden Crowd Sure Left Impression On Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons

Terry Rozier on Game 5 vs. Sixers'We've gotta be the harder playing team

The Philadelphia 76ers' exciting season came to a close on Wednesday when they were eliminated from the playoffs by the Boston Celtics in Game 5, but despite the crushing loss, there is reason for hope in Philly.

In every great National Basketball Association player's narrative there's a moment he'd like to forget that actually turns into a point in time that shapes the rest of his career for the better.

After the final horn sounded in Boston's 114-112 win on Wednesday, Embiid walked off the court and straight to the locker room.

After winning just 28 games past year, the Sixers finished the regular season with 52 wins and won a playoff series for the first time since 2012. "We've got to learn from it". Tatum scored 10 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, sinking the go-ahead layup with just 22.5 seconds left off an assist from Smart.

Embiid just turned 24, and Simmons is only 21.


In the waning moments of Game 5, Philadelphia had a chance to extend the series but saw star center Joel Embiid miss a two shots near the basket that sealed the team's fate. "But we definitely have more to show". "We got a lot of talented guys; we didn't play our best". We committed a lot of mistakes [in the series]. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Embiid has struggled mightily in that regard this season as he missed all eight shots that could have been game-tying or go-ahead field goals.

"The feeling right now is I didn't want to be done", Simmons said. Boston performed better with the games on the line, though, and deservedly advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals to square off with LeBron James and the Cavs.

Embiid's running mate, Simmons, weighed in after the disappointing loss and echoed a similar sentiment of his big man.

The Sixers also could have up to six picks in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft. "I feel like I had a lot more to go", he said.

The Celtics looked finished when Kyrie Irving underwent season-ending surgery just before the playoffs.
