76ers' Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Excited For Future After Loss To Celtics

Playoffs Notebook

The Philadelphia 76ers' season came to an end on Wednesday night at the hands of the Boston Celtics, and while losing a series to a hobbled Celtics squad certainly hurts, the future is bright in Philly.

Sixers' big man Joel Embiid missed a close-range shot that would have tied the game in the closing seconds of Game 5, and while the missed shot may haunt him this offseason, he is still staying positive, even tipping his cap to Boston.

Against the Celtics he averaged 14 points, eight rebounds and six assists in the series - still stunning for a rookie but not good enough for the 76ers.

For a team that won fewer than 20 games three times in the last five seasons, Brown isn't sugarcoating. When the season began, the Celtics were expected to contend for the Eastern title.

"We haven't made shots and I think if we can click on a night when we are guarding like we have been guarding and then make some shots, that's when we have a chance to be at our best", Brown said.

He further came to know that he had been cheated and the so-called scientists are members of the racket, the police said. The police told the media that they covered the copper plate with a liquid magnet in order to fool the businessman.

Considering Embiid is just 24 years old, Simmons is 21, Dario Saric is 24 and 2017 No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz (a non-factor this year) is 19, the confident, young Sixers rightfully anticipate better playoff finishes to come.

"He was, like, 'There's going to be a lot of rings on these, '" Embiid said. But I feel like everything happens for a reason. Some games some guys were playing well, some guys didn't, but we feel like when everybody's on, we're unbeatable.

"We have a rotation we believe in and we have the spirit to move this thing forward and we want to go back to Philadelphia". "But we committed a lot of mistakes".

Embiid insists that The Process will never end for the Sixers. "We've got to learn from it". It's a process to get to the playoffs, we did it.

"Me and Ben have a lot of room to grow", Embiid said, according to Sports Illustrated's Ben Golliver". We didn't do it, so next year it's definitely our goal.
