For too much of the game, Philadelphia looked like an AAU team - one loaded with individual talent but no idea how to play together - while the Nets were cohesive and getting the shots they wanted, then hitting them.

The revelation is a surprising one given that the big man has been sidelined by a lingering knee issue recently and that his status had been unknown in the days leading up to the playoffs.

Embiid said the voracious booing that was largely absent during the dark days of the Sixers 10-win season was tough to hear.

Of course the news that Embiid will be avialable is music to Sixers fans' ears.

Harris knocked down three 3-pointers in the first seven minutes to keep the Nets even and counter Embiid's forays to the foul line.

The 76ers will have to rebound in Game 2 in order to avoid heading to Brooklyn in an 0-2 hole. It's not time to write off the Sixers - as Nets coach Kenny Atkinson noted, Philly split the first two games at home in the first round against the Miami Heat in last year's playoffs and still went on to win in five games - but this is a tricky moment. He buried a 3 at the horn to send the Sixers into the break down 62-54.

Embiid has always fancied himself a 3-point shooter and with tendinitis in his left knee that cost him most of the final month of the season rendering him immobile he chose to camp out a bit more beyond the arc.

"I have addressed the matter with Amir directly, and he understands why his actions were unacceptable", Brand said.

Star center Joel Embiid might not play to start the series.

Philadelphia: City of Brotherly boos.

Philadelphia opened the third quarter with a 9-3 run to close within 65-63 before the Nets responded with a Davis rebound basket and two Russell scores to extend to a 71-65 led with 7:30 to go in the quarter. Not to mention Jimmy Butler, his notoriously competitive teammate. Team owner Josh Harris said both players could be resigned. "Now that we've attracted them into our system, we're going to work really hard at keeping them around for a while", Josh Harris said. Harris said Brown was a "great coach" but fell well short of giving him a vote of confidence.

Brett Brown's comments that Joel Embiid may or may not be ready for Game 1 slipped under the radar amid the chaos of Wednesday night's league-wide playoff implications, but I was certainly aware. "I'm focused on the Brooklyn Nets".
