Jimmy Butler offers very honest take on Joel Embiid's health

Brett Brown Ben Simmons Sixers

For all of the "trade Ben" talks that emerged after sub-par showings over the first five games of the Eastern Conference semi-finals, they were quickly shut down with 21 points, eight rebounds, and six assists; the Philadelphia 76ers forcing a deciding Game 7 against the Toronto Raptors.

The Raptors have been great on their home floor, posting a 32-9 record, but we know the Sixers are capable of winning there, as they did so in Game 2 of the series.

After the game, Embiid said he had needed an IV at 6 a.m. the day of the game after throwing up and not sleeping well.

The 76ers took down the Raptors, 112-101, to tie the series up at 3-3 and force a deciding game back in Toronto.

That's bulls--", Smart said when asked Thursday if Irving's leadership skills were behind the Celtics' lack of chemistry. By the second quarter of Game 4 in Boston - with the score still tied - the TD Garden crowd had all but died.

"As a star player, you can never show weakness", says Charles Barkley, the Hall of Fame NBA forward and 1993 NBA MVP.

Acknowledging the pressure his team faced Thursday, Sixers coach Brett Brown, who has heard his owner's expectation to advance further than the second round loud and clear, said the collective mindset was apparent.

The play, which occurred late in the fourth quarter when Embiid's hand hit Raptors center Marc Gasol in the face when the two were jostling for a rebound of a free throw, earned Embiid his third flagrant foul point of these playoffs.

Teammate Jimmy Butler also publicly urged Simmons and Embiid to do more.

Do not expect many Get Well Soon cards in Scotiabank Arena on Tuesday.

"I think it's grossly unfair, some of the criticism that he gets". That would be an incredible loss considering the fact that a flagrant-2 comes with a mandatory ejection.

Clearly, the sickness is significant enough that it's impacted his play, though few are accepting that as an excuse for Embiid - or the team's - performance the last two games. The 34-year-old is coming off a Game 5 in which he had 24 points.

It's all about being myself and having fun, he said. With no actual update for the 76ers center, we're now unaware of Embiid's status for Game 5. If you see me smile, that means I'm doing what I'm supposed to do. "He draws a lot of attention so for us we can make plays", Simmons said of Embiid.
