Jimmy Butler was lone bright spot for Sixers in Game 1

Joel Embiid Says Amir Johnson Was Using Phone to Check on Sick Daughter

Joel Embiid collected 23 points and 10 rebounds to lead Philadelphia. Embiid was even seen on the bench looking at a phone with Amir Johnson and laughing. Johnson showed Embiid whatever message was on the phone and then slid the device into his warmup trousers pocket. "It wasn't intentional... I'm not usually humble, that's why he's laughing", he said of Simmons.

Afterward, Embiid explained that Johnson's daughter is "extremely sick" and that he just wanted to check on her. Johnson followed that up on Sunday, saying she's actually fine and that he apologized to his teammates. "It didn't happen tonight", Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said. Kawhi Leonard tried to answer and force the game into overtime but his long three pointer hit nothing but air.

"I take full responsibility and will accept the consequences of my actions", he said.

Embiid was introduced to a roaring standing ovation and heard chants of "MVP!" and "Trust the Process" when he opened the game with two free throws. ORLANDO MAGIC 104-101 TORONTO RAPTORS D.J. Augustin scored 25 points, including the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 3.5 seconds left, and Orlando beat Toronto in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series. But for them to reach that ceiling, most everything had to go right. "I was out there just with my guys and push through the pain".

In a way, the Nets' commitment to working hard and working together is actually incredibly in line with Butler's own road dog attitude and could serve as a very legitimate display to why the former 30th overall pick may want to take an Amtrak train up the coast to find a new home in Brooklyn.

But wait, there were more disasters. The Sixers will obviously come out with more fire and desperation. During the season you acquired Jimmy Butler ... you acquire Tobias Harris.

Philadelphia's Ben Simmons had a couple of turnovers several minutes later as the Sixers struggled to cut into the lead. If you're going to give me that much space, I feel like I can do a lot of things with it and tonight I just made a decision to be aggressive and drive the ball. That's that type of energy I love.

Six Nets players scored in the double digits in the important win, and they never gave up the lead they built in the late first quarter. They're too good, too talented. too well coached. "I think if I'm getting everybody involved and getting everybody else easy shots, I think the game goes a different way". Caris LeVert is a player who has been counted out so many times and keeps coming back better than before.

So to recap, the Sixers lost home-court advantage, got caught using a cellphone on the bench, admonished fans for booing and refused to give the head coach a vote of confidence.

With the playoffs set to continue tonight, these storylines are important to consider as someone from a competitive Eastern Conference will face the victor of the West gauntlet.
