Simmons roasted by fans as Celtics take game one

Stephen Curry hasn’t played in these NBA playoffs

Ben Simmons' Philadelphia 76ers have tasted a rare loss as the Boston Celtics convincingly took the opening game of their National Basketball Association eastern conference semi-finals series. Rozier added eight rebounds and six assists, and Al Horford had 26 points and seven rebounds for Boston.

You expect this game to be much closer than Game 1, but I think this series could go seven games and the Celtics have been so good at home in these playoffs so I'm going with the C's and the points here.

"It was OK", Joel Embiid said of the atmosphere during the Celtics' Game 1 win over the Sixers Monday.

Philadelphia shot 5-26 from three, while their undermanned opponents exploded on 17-36 shots. Conversely, when Jayson Tatum shot free throws, they chanted, "He's-a-roo-kie!" to make a point.

While Boston has grown accustomed to playing without two of their superstars, they were forced to do without another star player Monday night, Jaylen Brown.

The first overall pick in the 2016 draft who sat out all of previous year with an injury, Simmons was heckled by the Boston crowd with chants of "Not a Rookie!"

"There was some concern that I could re-aggravate it and it becomes a season-ending injury", said Brown. Playoff defense means team defense, so that requires every player to give all they got every time down the floor.

"No matter how rusty you were, that explains your offense - it doesn't explain the indifference or the lack of effort that they displayed defensively". I just didn't know what it was going to be... Redick is an above average defender, but he's more suited to guard players his own size, which is why Brown will likely adjust by moving him onto Smart. "I don't know", Brad Stevens said when asked if the Celtics fed off of the energy from their Game 7 win.

Sixers coach Brett Brown is familiar with the Philadelphia and Boston matchups of the 1980s, having grown up in South Portland, Maine. LeBron James said he was "burnt" after the Cavs' Game Seven win against IN, so fans will pay attention to whether he has recovered enough for Cleveland to take this imperative game.

The duo have been terrific in these playoffs and produced their best performances against the Sixers last night. It's nearly impossible to win a playoff game in 2018 when someone who started the season as a backup point guard makes more threes than your whole team.
