Sixers' Embiid, Simmonds believe in brighter future

"It's pretty good, really", Fultz said. But the defense gets better in the playoffs and the best teams respond. However, he actually had serious problems with his shooting, according to several sources.

Embiid, who missed his first two seasons after being drafted in 2014 and suffered a knee injury last season, is expecting to make great strides after staying healthy and playing 71 games in the 2017-18 campaign. The Celtics have lost a lot of talent along the way this season. And while they rallied from a 12-point deficit to take a four-point fourth-quarter lead, the reality was that they still have not had the long, long postseason run that their rebuilding process was created to produce. Brown added 24 points and was 3-of-4 from deep, with multiple critical shots in the second half. The Cavaliers last playoff appearance in TD Garden was a sweet one as James poured in 35 points and the Cavs blew out the Celtics, 135-102. He had played in the first two games of that series. Baynes was a defensive stronghold for the Celtics all series underneath, facing off against Joel Embiid more than any other player. If it does, the Celtics will get it. Voting by the 30 head coaches takes place upon the end of the regular season and Toronto's Dwane Casey won.

"Anything we do of anything of significance, we are always going to have to go through the Boston Celtics", he said.

"I'm just looking to prove that I belong to be here", Fultz said in an exit interview at the Sixers' training facility in Camden Thursday. I'm with my family.

If the Sixers defy the odds and land the No. 1 overall pick with the 1.1% chance the Lakers pick has, they'll be able to select Real Madrid guard Luka Doncic. The biggest name to consider is J.J. Redick, who had a rough series against the Celtics. He scored one point while missing all four of his shots in Game 2. For the series, Covington is averaging just 7.3 points and 4.5 rebounds while shooting 25 percent from the floor. They might need two such players, since Marco Belinelli will also be a free agent.

He was asked if this was the first time he has struggled. "But I think maybe it's what we needed for the younger guys on the team, for Jo and I, to be in situations like that and learn from it". They threw something else at us we haven't seen. "I drone on about it, but I'm a big believer in it and it's defintely gotten us to this point". We all gotta play well together.
