Joel Embiid Reportedly Upset Celtics by Leaving Without Shaking Hands

Many analysts picked the Philadelphia 76ers as a dark horse to reach the Eastern Conference Finals and potentially even knock off LeBron James, but they were eliminated by the Boston Celtics in five games on Wednesday night.

"I think we've got a bright future", Embiid said, and related an exchange he and Simmons shared after their loss to the Celtics, when the guard pointed to the center's hands and predicted there would be "a lot of rings" on Embiid's fingers. Boston outplayed Philadelphia in clutch time throughout the series, outscoring the Sixers 51-39 when games entered the final five minutes with a margin of five or fewer points. "And it'll be a lot easier for us to come in and get games done and not put ourselves in a hole like we did. It sucks but you got to learn from it and come back next year and do better".

This could have potentially changed the outcome of the game as Embiid would have been sent to the free throw line to possibly tie the game up.

JJ Redick hit an off-balance 3-pointer with 4.7 seconds to play to pull Philadelphia within one. "You can't have one guy".


Many thought Philadelphia would have a chance against Boston since they were without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, but the Celtics surprised the Sixers and the rest of the National Basketball Association by winning the series in five games.

"If we're going to do anything of any significance, we're always going to have to go through the Boston Celtics", he said.

Trailing Boston by two with the shot clock off in the fourth quarter of Game 5, the Sixers turned to a suddenly unmasked Embiid for a potential game-tying basket.

"I feel like this season was kind of like a success", Embiid said. "I feel like I had a lot more to go", he said.
