  • Markelle Fultz is not 'dead and buried' for NBA playoffs, Sixers' coach Brett Brown insists

With AP Photos.Rookie Jayson Tatum scored 21 points and hit a pair of free throws in the closing second to help the Boston Celtics rally to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 108-103 to a take a 2-0 series in their second round series.

"I think it was mainly what I did to myself", Simmons said after failing to score a field goal for the first time in his 87-game career. "The doctors didn't want me to play; I told them I would be fine". Once he landed, the eager 21-year-old simply turned around and jogged back up the court just he normally would. Marcus Smart finished with 19 points and five rebounds as the Celtics improved to 6-0 at TD Garden this postseason. The Celtics forced Simmons to turn the ball over five times and contained his drives, limiting him to only one point on seven drives to the basket, according to ESPN Stats & Information. I will encourage him like I always do but there is nothing that I need to say, he brings it night in and night out. "Obviously, the matchup with Al is a tough one for us and for most of the league". They have all played extremely well in the postseason. "Physically, the Heat were on another level". In their first round series with the Bucks, the home team prevailed in all seven contests.

"Defensively, we were trash", Embiid, who had 31 points, 13 rebounds and five assists on Monday, said.

Missouri's first Jewish governor faces state's first-ever impeachment hearing
Greitens, a married father with two children, admitted in January to having an affair before he ran for governor. He'll stand trial for the first charge on May 14, and jury selection is scheduled to start May 10.

For roughly the first six minutes of the quarter, the Sixers looked as if they would run Boston out of the Garden. They only made three of those attempts as they desperately tried to limp into the half with a double-digit advantage, but the Celtics weren't going to let that happen. "But we're headed home now".

Can it be that through two sleepless nights of trying to concoct complex solutions to a 117-101 loss that Brett Brown may really believe the Game 2 answer is not so complicated? Robert Covington had 22 points, nine rebounds, two assists, and two steals. The Sixers outscored Boston by 16 points with McConnell on the floor.

Philadelphia recovered after squandering its big lead to nudge back in front 93-88 midway through the fourth quarter. But Brown chose to sub in Simmons for McConnell with 5:29 to play after McConnell had four points and three assists in the period.

May is also negotiating an exit from the European Union that 60 percent of the capital rejected at the 2016 Brexit referendum. Shadow chancellor John McDonnell and International Trade Secretary Liam Fox both said the results so far were "mixed".

Sixers guard Justin Anderson waves his arms against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, February 10, 2018 in Philadelphia. The Celtics are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Philadelphia, 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the underdog is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

"And as I admit, if you had to do it again, maybe you would have", he said about calling a timeout. I feel like you're going to see a different team tonight. "And I liked it coming into it".

"We're learning, we're a young team". Nobody is panicking in the locker room, nobody's freaking out. "They definitely punched us in the mouth in the beginning of the game and we just had to bounce back and get things together". With rapper Gucci Mane cheering on every possession and Jaylen Brown hobbling back and forth (but still throwing down huge dunks), the Celtics went on a 20-5 run to end the half and trailed 56-51 at the break.
