Dialed in? Sixers caught with cellphone on bench

Joel Embiid At Risk Of Missing Game 1 Of The NBA Playoffs: Report

76ers' Joel Embiid on Playing Status for Game 1 vs. Nets: 'I Have No Idea'

Joel Embiid was caught along with Johnson looking at what appeared to be Johnson's phone on the bench. Johnson showed Embiid whatever message was on the phone and then slid it into the pocket of his warmup trousers.

The Sixers made the easy call and fined Johnson an unspecified amount for conduct detrimental to the team.

Harris said Brown was a "great coach" but offered no assurance he would return to the bench for another season if the Sixers failed to make a deep run in the playoffs. That changed on Saturday when Embiid was cleared to play in the game. I expect him to be full force.

There will be plenty to talk about from the game, including the poor performances from some of the Sixers' stars, notably Ben Simmons, who finished with just nine points and seven rebounds.

The Sixers, booed by the Wells Fargo Center crowd throughout the game, were heavily favored to beat the Nets before the series tipped off. Brooklyn isn't among the four teams widely considered to have a chance to make the Finals out of the East now that LeBron James is in Los Angeles.

"I think he's a little more focused", coach Bret Brown said before the game.

"We all got to do a better job. Us".

Well, the Brooklyn Nets have done the unthinkable.

But wait, there were more disasters. "[The team is] going to do whatever they can as far as getting me ready and healthy, but if my body doesn't respond based on the pain level, there's really nothing you can do".

Sixers starters Simmons, Tobias Harris and JJ Redick combined to shoot 11 of 31 from the floor for 18 points. Unfortunately, a hobbled Joel Embiid will also have to deal with non-basketball related fallout from Saturday's contest, too.

"I'll point exclusively to fatigue", Brown said. "They show us a lot of love", Embiid said. "I understand why they boo".
