The secrets to running success Sixers begin championship quest | Morning Newsletter

Ben Simmons was at the free throw line with 1 minute, 47 seconds left in the third quarter and the 76ers trailing the Brooklyn Nets, 89-78 in Game 1 of the National Basketball Association playoffs.

"It's my decision because I'm the one feeling the pain and it's my body", Embiid said.

Despite appearing to have a huge advantage over their rivals on paper, the Sixers realize the last thing they can do is underestimate the Nets, especially since the two teams split the four-game series during the regular season.

"I take full responsibility and will accept the consequences of my actions".

The NBA Operations Manual bans the use of cellular phones on the bench during games.

Sixers general manager Elton Brand said the team has fined Johnson for detrimental conduct.

Johnson was caught by TV cameras sitting on the bench and scrolling through his phone late in the fourth quarter and the Sixers down 16 points.

Coach Brett Brown did mention that we will see a "different Ben Simmons in Game 2" so that is something to look forward to as the series moves on to the next one.

Brown said he would deal with Johnson, but he declined to address any specific discipline.
