Jaylen Brown guarantees return for Celtics-Sixers Game 2: 'I'll be back'

Jaylen Brown guarantees return for Celtics-Sixers Game 2: 'I'll be back'

And on Thursday night, Game 2 tips off in Boston once again. Boston controlled the quarter and managed to extend their lead to 17-points, 87-70, with 40.9 seconds left in the quarter.

Boston's 117 points represented the most Philadelphia has conceded in the playoffs, and it was the third-highest total for a Philly opponent since the All-Star break. Furthermore, the Sixers are unlikely to continue to shoot as poorly as they did Monday - 19.2 percent from 3-point range - and the Celtics probably will regress a bit after shooting the lights out in Game 1. Al Horford (26 points), in particular, found plenty of daylight when he roamed the perimeter away from Embiid's comfort zone in the paint.

And Boston didn't even have one of their best defenders in the opener as Jaylen Brown was ruled out with a hamstring strain.

"It starts on defense". "I thought I was s--ty. I thought we were all bad tonight", Embiid said, per ESPN's Ian Begley.

"Defensively, offensively, this isn't who we are". The former is missing its most skilled offensive players and the latter one of the most effective defensive units in the National Basketball Association. Simply put: Embiid will need to cover ground more effectively when Boston deploys its five-out looks.

"I think when everybody's on, we're the best defensive team in the game".

The Heat were pretty good at denying the hockey assist. Late in the third quarter, Smart outmuscled Embiid under the Boston basket for a Marcus Morris miss, and then flipped the ball over his head for a lovely and-one.

Sixers: Embiid is the first Sixer with 30 points in a playoff game since Andre Miller in 2009. As a result, the Sixers' outside shooting and ball movement in the half-court lagged.

"I don't care", Simmons said. "So the next game, we have to alter the course and make sure that we don't let them get any separations". Nevertheless, the team's "next man up" mentality prevailed over the up-and-coming, and previously red-hot, Sixers.

"[The crowd] was okay", he said, after his 31-point, 13-rebound night. So you think about stuff all night long, as we should, as I should. It was okay. I was fine.

"People say it was the greatest individual rivalry they've ever seen", Russell told the Boston Globe's Bob Ryan. He is also just playing within the game plan and doing all the necessary things to help the team win games.

Embiid's harsh, but accurate, self-assessment clearly matters more than his comparative decibel analysis. They shot the ball poorly, defended the three-ball poorly, and handled the ball poorly as well. Aron Baynes and Marcus Smart combined for four.
