Joel Embiid On Game 1 Loss: "I Thought I Was Shitty"

3 thoughts from Boston's Game 1 victory over Ben Simmons' 76ers

Something happens to Terry Rozier when he takes the TD Garden floor under those bright National Basketball Association playoff lights, surrounded by 18,624 amped-up fans. Maybe that's overstating things, but not by a lot.

Going up against a team like the Philadelphia 76ers, Terry Rozier is going to have to keep this up.

The second-seeded Celtics edged the Milwaukee Bucks, 4-3, in their Eastern Conference first round series courtesy of four home wins.

The 28 points from Jayson Tatum, a career high from the guy the Sixers passed on as the No. 1 pick last spring, instead choosing to go with Markelle Fultz, who was notable for his zero-points-in-zero-minutes absence.

Larkin is not scoring much either (9.7 points per 36), but he has continued to distribute efficiently (5.8 assists per 36) when next to Rozier in the backcourt.

The 76ers were feast or starvation from the three-point line against Miami. It's a staggering contrast, for sure. Embiid finished with 31 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists.

But somehow in just 48 hours, Brad Stevens and the Celtics pieced together a game plan on both ends to pull the rug on the Philadelphia 76ers. "He's been great all year".

Sweden rule out Zlatan World Cup return
Andersson hasn't spoken to Ibrahimovic recently but insinuated having Ibrahimovic back on the team would have caused issues. Former Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovi? is facing a World Cup ban over links with a betting company.

During the postseason, the Celtics have been outscored by * a href="https://stats.nba.com/lineups/advanced/?Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Playoffs&TeamID=1610612738&sort=NET_RATING&dir=-1&GroupQuantity=2&CF=MIN*GE*37&DateTo=04%2F30%2F2018" target="_blank" rel="noopener" *8.8 points per 100 possessions when Rozier is on the court with Larkin. His "Scary Terry" persona and relentless energy feeds off the crowd.

I expected the 76ers to take care of business in Game 1 but perhaps the long layoff backfired on them as they weren't almost as sharp as they were in the first round.

Rozier noted his offseason preparation and hard work leading to performances like these.

Moving ahead, the Celtics might get Brown back. Two short point guards just going out there and having fun. "This is a very poor game from us".

"I get the history of what goes on between our two organisations intimately and I just think it is incredibly exciting to revisit that with my young guys and show them even before we got into the Xs and Os and scout tape", Brown told reporters after the Monday morning shootaround. But they looked far from ready to play.

Boston, playing without shooting guard Jaylen Brown who was ruled out minutes before the game, had three players step up in his absence on Monday. For now, let's take a look at some of the frustrations surrounding Philadelphia that stood out the most from their first loss of the series to Boston.
