The 76ers suffered a tough 128-101 loss to the Celtics that puts them in an 0-2 hole early. Joel Embiid led the way with 34 points and 10 rebounds, but it was not enough as the rest of the team did not step up offensively . And the Celtics went bonkers from deep behind Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Philadelphia shot 5-for-21 from deep compared to 19-for-43 for Boston as the Sixers looked confused on defense and they couldn’t help Embiid on offense. It’s hard, you got to play more than 40 minutes especially for a big guy, it’s hard to do, but that’s what I signed up for and I’m happy to be here, Joel Embiid told reporters.
