76ers' Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Excited For Future After Loss To Celtics

76ers' Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Excited For Future After Loss To Celtics

We committed a lot of mistakes [in the series]. So with the Sixers officially eliminated from the playoffs to see their offseason officially get underway, let's take a look at three final thoughts from the tough series loss to the Celtics. Boston advanced after a 114-112 win in Game 5 Wednesday.

The NBA released its Last Two Minute Report for Game 5 on Thursday, and it confirmed the referees missed a foul on Baynes as Embiid missed a layup with the 76ers trailing 111-109.

There were high hopes for the 76ers heading into the National Basketball Association playoffs after a campaign that yielded 52 victories in the regular season and a first playoff series win since 2012 - a round-one triumph against the Miami Heat.

Embiid's running mate, Simmons, weighed in after the disappointing loss and echoed a similar sentiment of his big man.

"I don't want to offend any of the other places I have been", Redick said, per Evan Macy of Philly Voice, "or teams I have been on but this was probably my favorite year of my career". And going into the playoffs we felt like we had a really good chance, especially after winning 16 in a row (to close the regular season).

The Cavs lost the best-of-five series 3-1, but had a shot in the air to win or tie in each game they lost. "I feel like I had a lot more to go". This was a process to get to the conference finals, we didn't.

"At the end of the game (Simmons) came up to me and showed me his hands and was like, 'There's gonna be a lot of rings on these.' I was like, 'For sure'".
