Brooklyn Nets upset Philadelphia 76ers in play-off opener

NBA playoffs 2019 Nets Jared Dudley doubles down on Ben Simmons comments

The Brookyln Nets secured a 111-102 victory against the Philadelphia 76ers in the National Basketball Association play-offs. As a team, the 76ers shot a healthy 56 percent from the field and nine of 23 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 65 points in the first half, before putting the game out of reach in the third quarter where they exploded for 51 points. Embiid finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds in 21 minutes, while Ben Simmons submitted his second career playoff triple-double (18 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds) after a rough Game 1. Bearing that in mind, here are three takeaways from Monday night's victory.

- SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) April 16, 2019Sixers' Joel Embiid & Ben Simmons crack up laughing while Embiid was trying to apologize for flagrant elbow to Nets' Jarrett Allen during Game 2 win: "I got him pretty good but I'm sorry about wasn't intentional". They have never overcome an 0-2 deficit in a playoff series. "I'm sure he'll bounce back and play a little better in the next game".

However, according to some of the players speaking after the game, Brett Brown's halftime profanity-laced tirade was just what they needed to propel them to a record 51 point 3rd quarter.

"We didn't really like that", Nets guard Caris Lavert told reporters on Wednesday. "But I like it".

Mississippi, Alabama bracing for another possible round of severe weather
There are a number of factors at play in the atmosphere to contribute to a better than average chance for severe weather for us. Furthermore, there will be a number of people who will see just a brief shower and maybe hear a rumble of thunder.

"But I got a lot of love for this city", Simmons added.

With the win, and that quarter, the Sixers showed just how unsafe they can be. The Philadelphia 76ers have a record of 10-4 when Harris hits at least 40.0 percent of his 3-pointers.

Jimmy Butler seemed to be the only one that truly came to play all game. "I'm numb to it". The 76ers need Harris to be hitting 3-pointers if they want to make a deep postseason run. "There is zero doubt he is our crown jewel". Philly obviously needs him on the floor, but this series has the potential to go beyond five games, so the Sixers need to play it smart with him as well.

It should be said that Embiid was lucky to be in the game.

Google blocks Chinese app TikTok in India after court order
YourStory reached out to TikTok about MeitY's directive to Google and Apple, and the company refused to comment on the matter. The bench said the high court is already seized of the matter and the ban order was just an interim order .

The Brooklyn Nets topped the Philadelphia 76ers 111-102 on Saturday, but the top story wasn't even on the court. However, with Embiid's knee being an issue and the Nets being hungry, I wouldn't be surprised if they advanced. "As a team, we did not rebound".

"It might not be flashy but we all got to do our jobs". If we don't find a solution to our rebounding woes, it's going to be over quick.

While the Nets were taken advantage of in the paint, their outside shooting went ice cold.

Elgin Baylor's 1962 Los Angeles Lakers were the only other team to score that many points in a playoff quarter, doing so in the final frame of Game 5 in a second-round series against the Detroit Pistons. Game 3 is Thursday night in Brooklyn, the franchise's first home playoff game in four years. "I'm not going to talk to him about that". "We'll look at the film, see what we can do".

It was rumored back in December 2018 that the game will release in November of this year, but we have yet to get confirmation. Players will meet Cal on Bracca, a brand-new Star Wars planet and one of several new locations introduced in the game.

D'Angelo Russell started slowly by missing 12 of his first 15 shots but led the Nets with 26 points. Augustin made a layup to tie it again with 44 seconds left, then connected from long range for the fourth time to win the game. "For my $35,000, I should've elbowed a guy in the face like that".
