  • Amir Johnson apologizes for using cell phone on bench

    Amir Johnson was seen using his cell phone on the bench during a playoff game on Saturday as the Philadelphia 76ers took on the Brooklyn Nets. Johnson's phone usage created a media storm witch culminated in the Sixers forward being fined by his own team. Joel Embiid said that Johnson was merely checking in on his sick daughter, but using a phone on the sidelines is a NBA rule violation.

  • Scouting D'Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie and the Nets

    Russell, Dinwiddie and the pick-and-roll D'Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie do an excellent job of identifying favorable matchups and attacking them. Russell was far too quick for JJ Redick on this play from Dec. 12, and he floated it perfectly over Joel Embiid. After Jarrett Allen's screen, the Sixers switched Mike Muscala on to Dinwiddie on the play below from Nov. 25.

  • Game of Phones: 76ers get blown call on bench in blowout

    How's this for a blown call: Amir Johnson was busted showing Philadelphia 76ers All-Star teammate Joel Embiid his cellphone on the bench late in a Game 1 playoff loss. Johnson was caught by TV cameras sitting on the bench and scrolling through his phone late in the fourth quarter and the Sixers losing by double digits.

  • Ben Simmons doesn't endear himself to Sixers fans with comment about booing after Game 1 loss to Nets

    Ben Simmons is often direct when answering questions from the media. After the Sixers' 111-102 loss to the Nets on Saturday in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series (see observations), he was asked his thoughts on the frustration from the crowd at Wells Fargo Center. It's likely not a quote that will endear him to the Sixers fans already groaning at his continued unwillingness to accept the frequent invitations he has to shoot open jumpers, and already frustrated by his nine-point, seven-rebound, three-assist performance vs. Brooklyn.

  • Joel Embiid, Amir Johnson caught checking phone from bench during Game 1 loss to Nets

    That was everything that could have gone wrong for Philadelphia in Game 1 of the playoffs. For too much of the game, Philadelphia looked like an AAU team — one loaded with individual talent but no idea how to play together — while the Nets were cohesive and getting the shots they wanted, then hitting them. Brooklyn was 11-of-26 from three for the game, the Sixers 3-of-25.

  • NBA playoffs: Is anybody under more pressure than James Harden?

    James Harden A trip to the NBA Finals would do more for James Harden's standing in history and today's hierarchy than any other player. But that would mean carrying the Rockets past the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors in a likely second-round matchup, not the conference finals, the latest scene of Harden's tank running on E. And that would mean Harden reversing course on a very ugly pattern, closing out series in a forgettable manner because going 6-for-36 —as he did in Games 6 and 7 of the West finals combined — won't cut it at any stage this time around.
