76ers’ Markelle Fultz Ready To ‘Test Myself’ Against Kyrie Irving, Celtics

Joel Embiid: Celtics vs Sixers Isn’t A Rivalry, “They Always Kick Our Ass”

Joel Embiid: Celtics vs Sixers Isn’t A Rivalry, “They Always Kick Our Ass”

"We are not surprising any teams any more".

Meanwhile, Fultz's shooting hasn't lived up to the hype of being the first overall pick in the 2017 draft. He's expected to be sidelined for at least the first two to three weeks of the regular season. This could be a fun rivalry someday, with Embiid's gregarious personality, Jayson Tatum's stone-cold assassin stylings, and the entire city of Boston's hatred of the one-point man, Ben Simmons.

That explanation seems to suggest Fultz's limited second-half playing time was mostly a product of Brown wanting to use McConnell more against the Celtics, which is fair. "I've been around. This is my eighth year so I see that we have a special team". The 76ers still need to find more ways to add talent to their team, and that will make sure Simmons and Embiid are enough to start overwhelming any potential opponent. It worked and Simmons was pretty ineffective for a good part of the series. Often compared to James Harden over his lone season at the University of Washington, Fultz looked like a ideal backcourt complement to the enigma formally known as Ben Simmons, who could effectively play at a high level both on and off the ball alongside the position this wonder.

There are still 81 games to go, but barring injury, last night was a preview of the rest of the season.

Want proof? Just look at last season. "So we have to come in with that mind-set that teams are coming after you now". He missed the final preseason game due to back soreness, so with that now gone, hopefully we see more of what we did last season from Dario.

The U.N. oversaw Monday's reopening ceremony of the Quneitra crossing, on the Israeli-held Golan Heights. But IS has lost most of its self-declared caliphate in Syria and Iraq over the last two years.

If that wasn't an ass kicking, then we don't know what is. Because he's a guy that could be playing 32, 34 minutes a night, starting, and playing a lot for ... for a lot of places. "It was a big step for me".

Because this is not a rivalry - at least according to Joel Embiid. "Everybody has to play with great effort because the guy behind him is chomping at the bit to get in". While Fultz is hardly the shooter Redick is now, and may never ascend to that level, he is certainly a more athletic defender, which will come in handy thanks to Simmons unorthodox defensive fit. Once Muscala and Chandler return, the depth will be even better off.

Embiid made it clear afterward the 76ers have a way to go to be on the Celtics' level. The main things that he focused on were ball-handling in the post and having the ability to confidently pass out of double teams. "They've got playmakers, they've got shot-takers, they're just play-off-built".

"I think that's all timing", said Horford.

5-for-26. The 76ers made five three-pointers in 48 minutes. "It's Shaquille O'Neal. He has the ability to do that". He converted those at a 52.7 percent mark.
