76ers' Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Excited For Future After Loss To Celtics

Robert Covington

Sixers' big man Joel Embiid missed a close-range shot that would have tied the game in the closing seconds of Game 5, and while the missed shot may haunt him this offseason, he is still staying positive, even tipping his cap to Boston. The NBA released it's Last 2 Minute Report for Tuesday night's game, the league's last two-minutes report stated that there should have been in fact a shooting foul called on Baynes in that situation. "But they did a great job the whole night".

The 76ers simply dominated from the opening tip, jumping out to an early 29-8 lead as Simmons scored 24 of his game-high and career-high 38 points in the first half.

But there was an underlying optimism about what might lie ahead for Philadelphia. Keep in mind this was a Sixers team coming off a 10-win season a year ago, and to see them advance as far as they did in the playoffs was truly awesome, as Brett Brown knows the future is bright for his team.

Despite losing to an injury-riddled Celtics team in five games, the Sixers' young stars were optimistic about their future during the post-game press conference.
