". "We're going to be fine".
"'We know what to expect", Simmons said.
Rookie-of-the-Year candidate Ben Simmons had a hard start to the series and had one of his worst stretches of basketball play the entire season. We got a lot of talented guys; we didn't play our best.
"I think it is a mutual appreciation", Redick told reporters Thursday, a day after Philly's season ended in Game 5 with a loss to the Boston Celtics.
"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'".
Embiid is right. Should the pair stay healthy and should the Sixers continue to build on their success in the right way, the Sixers should have a bright, competitive future.
Embiid got his own rebound after two missed shots, but then he lost the ball out of bounds as a result of a good defensive play by Celtics guard Terry Rozier. However, they'll be disappointed they're now out of the playoffs, especially after entering the postseason on a 16-game winning streak and dispatching the Miami Heat in five games in the first round.
