Philadelphia guard guard 76ers Ben Simmons has supported his colleague Joel Embiid after their 92-90 loss to the Toronto Burgers in game 7 of the second series of the playoff game.
During his press learner, Simmons said that he and his colleagues are behind Embiid. JoJo spent particularly after the loss, and spreading videos online showing him tears going to the locker room.
“We always got his back. We are a family … That is my brother, so I am always here for him, but we must get better at the end of the day … He is a competitor. He loves to compete. He wants to win. That's what you want to see in men like that, ”Simmons said Michael Scotto from Athletic.
Kawhi Leonard completed the Cairde title aspirations this season having made a high-profile corner jumper over Embiid in Game 7. Leonard shot four times before he went into the hoop.
Just 4.2 seconds earlier, Jimmy Butler, Philadelphia shooting guard, blocked a driving version to tie the game at 90 apiece. This arranged the stage for a Leonard winning game shot – probably the largest in franchise history of birds. Kawhi finished with 41 games.
There were 21 high points and 11 rebound by Philiid for Philly. The All-Star center was started slowly, making two of its first 10 attempts from the floor. He finished with a 6-of-18 shot clip.

As in the case of Simmons, he was more aggressive as the series fought against the poultry. After a seven point forgotten performance in a 36 point dummy loss in Game 5, he had 34 points together in the final two games.
Although the ball did not bounce the way of the Six, there is no reason for them – especially Embiid – to hang their head low. Having lost the plays for five consecutive years, they won at least 51 games in each of the last two seasons.
We have the bright future in Philadelphia. Sixers have a strong heart in Embiid and Simmons. If they can keep Jimmy Butler, re-sign agents free of charge by Tobias Harris and J.J. Set aside and add some important pieces, they should return with enthusiasm in 2019-20.
