Joel Embiid Available For Game 1

Joel Embiid At Risk Of Missing Game 1 Of The NBA Playoffs: Report

The 76ers guard had a rough Game 1 against the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday in Philadelphia's 111-102 loss.

Russell got the first win of his playoff career and the last laugh, scoring 14 points in the third quarter and leading the Nets to one of the biggest wins since they moved to Brooklyn.

The Australian 22-year-old had a below average game for his high standards with nine points, seven rebounds and three assists.

Things don't get much easier as they prepare to play the mighty Sixers in the first round, but throughout the season, these teams are evenly matched.

When asked why Amir Johnson was on his phone on the bench, Joel Embiid says he was checking on his daughter because she is very ill.

"I think he's a little more focused", coach Bret Brown said before the game.

Sky Sports are the exclusive rights holders for NBA in the United Kingdom and will be televising games throughout the NBA Playoffs. Without him, the Sixers might simply not be able to keep up with the Nets' offense. Unfortunately, a hobbled Joel Embiid will also have to deal with non-basketball related fallout from Saturday's contest, too. Dinwiddie and DeMarre Carroll hit consecutive 3s during a 12-0 run.

When the 76ers made the trade to acquire Jimmy Butler earlier this season, it was with the playoffs in mind. "You know. You learn quickly in the NBA Playoffs that the first kind of open look you got, is going probably going to be your best look". Team owner Josh Harris said both players could be re-signed.

Sixers general manager Elton Brand said the team has fined Johnson for detrimental conduct. I've never said anything about them.
