Asked what he will do with the piece of game-worn memorabilia he received from Simmons Wednesday, Beau Freedman said he intends to frame it and that he was not even tempted by some of the offers he received from people on social media. They'll be steeped in talent, they'll mix developing youngsters with established veterans and they'll have Brad Stevens - infallible already, for some Boston fans - at the head of it all. Embiid, who had talked plenty of trash throughout the series, missed the game-tying shot with 11 seconds remaining and had the rebound bounce off his leg, giving the Celtics possession and control of the game. Next season, without making any roster changes, the Sixers look like a team that will be a tough out in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
He said: "That's a Marcus Smart sequence". A deal that would see the 76ers pay him $23 million. All of us that play open gym get chippy after five straight games.
"We have a game plan that we're confident in, we have a rotation that we believe in, and they have a spirit still to move this thing forward", Coach Brett Brown said.
With Smart out of the starting five, the C's were positioning themselves to have slightly less of a defensive edge out of the gate. After a nail-bitingly close game, and giving up a four-point lead, the Sixers lost to the Celtics, 114-112.

Celtics guard Terry Rozier, who has emerged as a star late in the season and into the playoffs with Kyrie Irving out for the year, has become a quote machine in these playoffs.
The Celtics, for the most part, experienced a rocky third quarter, but Brown was able to catch fire. 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. "They post him. He'll come off and hit spot-up 3s". It proved a significant addition for a young Philly team, as Redick averaged 17.1 points and 2.8 3-pointers per game. His incredibly solid defence helped Boston contain Embiid to reasonable numbers throughout the series and, when it mattered most in the clutch, Embiid just couldn't get it done. His 76.9 percent shooting clip from the field matched his career high when attempting 10 or more shots in a game, proving that he was locked in all night long. If anything keeps Brown up for nights to come, it will be the realization of that gap. "He defends, but he also, on offense, is efficient".
"I'm a skeptic", shooting guard JJ Redick said, though he further said: "The [tricks] are all good".
"I mean the play unfolded, and I mean the refs, they had a great game, I thought they were great tonight", Embiid said after the game that saw the Celtics advance to play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals.
