Simmons loses in 76ers debut, Nets' Lin hurt

2:37PlayDid the Sixers take a risk in giving Joel Embiid a max contract extension

Thanks to Philadelphia keeping it close the entire game, Brown was willing to use Embiid more in the lineup since the team was in position to win, and would go on to play 27 minutes while finishing with 18 points along with 13 rebounds.

"I think I was very honest and direct with them about wanting to be in NY, wanting to be on a winning team, wanting to have a good team".

The Aussie says he's at 100 percent now and looked nothing like a rookie against the Wizards as he played with poise and allowed the game to come to him instead of forcing anything. I didn't think I was a scorer, that I could score the ball, but I found it, and then I kept getting better until I got hurt.

Simmons, playing in his first National Basketball Association game, notched a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, and he added five assists to his night.

"His first game was really exceptional - really, really exceptional".

While the company said that it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue, it increases the risk for injury. In a press release, the company says the recall affects 1.3 million vehicles, all from the 2017 model year.

A day after Gordon Hayward suffered a broken left leg, it was Brooklyn's Lin, the NBA's first United States player of Chinese and Taiwanese heritage, who went down in Indiana's 140-131 home win over the Nets. "I think the plan is just get out there, play, and see how I feel". He realizes that he needs to be honest with the staff about how he's feeling when they ask him, something he may not have recognized before. "Like at some point during the game I was exhausted, and I told them to take me out". Embiid is the elder statesman at 23, while Simmons is 21 and Fultz is 19 - and this is a team that hasn't won more than 28 games over the past four seasons.

"I'm doing whatever I have to do to win", Fultz said Wednesday morning.

While last year's minutes restriction became a benchmark for Embiid to grow upon, Brown doesn't want to compare the two situations.

"I know he's a strong, athletic point guard that brings a lot of toughness to the game", Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. "It's not a rigid restriction number in the world we're living in this year".
