NBA Game Recap: Brooklyn Nets (100) vs. Philadelphia 76ers (122) - Date: 4/23/2019 Apr 23, 2019PHILADELPHIA Joel Embiid showed no mercy. He buried a 3-pointer that gave the 76ers a 24-point lead and waved his arms like a boss, exhorting an already jacked crowd to get louder.Philly obeyed its most popular player and went wild - and the All-Star center believes the good times have only just started.''We think we can win it all,'' Embiid said.Ben Simmons thumped his chest after a big dunk , Embiid pointed toward an overmatched defender on a slam of his own, and Philadelphia flexed its offensive muscle from the opening tip to beat the Brooklyn Nets 120-100 on Tuesday night and close out their Eastern Conference playoff series in five games.Up next, a second round series against the Toronto Raptors, who dropped their playoff opener before winning four straight against Orlando - the same thing the Sixers did to Brooklyn.''We still have more to do. A lot more to do,'' coach Brett Brown said.Any late arrivals missed the defining moments of the game from a jovial Sixers team that enjoyed toying with the sickly Nets.The Sixers stunned the Nets with a 14-0 run in front of the loudest and rowdiest packed house of the season.Embiid again shook off a bad left knee and had six points and five rebounds in the first two minutes to chants of ''MVP!'' The Nets later trailed 20-2, and Simmons put an exclamation point on the stunning first quarter when he drove the paint and used a right-handed jam to make it 32-12 - with a thump of his chest for emphasis.''They did whatever they wanted before we could even get on the board,'' Nets All-Star guard D'Angelo Russell said.Brooklyn's Jared Dudley was soundly booed during pregame introductions and each time he touched the ball in the first. Dudley had stirred trouble when he said Simmons was ''average'' in the half-court. Dudley bumped Embiid in Game 4, triggering a skirmish with Jimmy Butler that spilled into the stands. Dudley heard ''Dudley sucks!'' chants from opening tipoff and got a view of this rout from the bench in the second half. He flashed a few smiles in the waning moments, his time as a playoff name over.The teams tangled again in the final two minutes, and the deep reserves had to be separated. Sixers mascot Franklin ran out wearing oversized gold boxing gloves to bring a dose of levity to the ruckus.Philadelphia's Jonah Bolden and Greg Monroe, and Brooklyn's Dzanan Musa and Radians Kurucs were ejected.''Our team was physical the whole time,'' Simmons said. ''I think we need to take that up to Toronto.'' Embiid got the last laugh in the second quarter with a baseline dunk over Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and pointed at the hapless defender. Embiid was hit with a technical but by then, who cared? Embiid buried a 3 from the top of the arc that made it 41-17 and about blew the roof off the arena. Sixers general manager Elton Brand, who sits in the first row of the press seating, had his eyes locked on the scoreboard for each replay of the big man's 3.Embiid had 23 points and 13 rebounds, Simmons had 13 points and no starter played more than 27 minutes in a game that could have been called off after the first quarter.Hollis-Jefferson scored 21 points for the Nets, who head into the offseason after their first playoff series since 2015.''We never made a push back,'' Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. ''I'm surprised we didn't come out with more grit, more fight.'' Brand is as much to credit for the Sixers' success as anyone, using his rookie season as GM to orchestrate trades for Butler and Tobias Harris that kept Philly humming along in a 51-win season. But even before the trades, the Sixers were expected to make it this far in the playoffs. Free Sports Picks Daily. They did last season and were knocked out by Boston in the East semis in five games. Sports Handicapper Records. The midseason trades for Harris and Butler were expected to push the Sixers to at least the conference final. Brown has said the goal is to play in the NBA Finals."They're going for big things. Sports Experts. They can compete for a championship, quite honestly,'' Atkinson said.TIP-INSNets: Joe Harris, the NBA's top 3-point shooter, hit his first one since Game 1 with the score well out of hand. Harris was just 3 of 16 through the first four games. ... Nets general manager Sean Marks was suspended for the game for entering the referees' locker room after Brooklyn's loss to Philadelphia in Game 4. ... Simmons smothered Russell and the Nets star was held to eight points on 3 of 16 shooting.76ers: Their 29-point halftime lead was the largest in playoff franchise history. The 31 points allowed matched the lowest in the shot-clock era.UP NEXTThe Raptors went 3-1 vs. the Sixers this season.''You can credit it or you can discredit it,'' Brown said. ''I'm discrediting it. We have a new group. We have a new opportunity.'' ---More NBA: https://apnews.com/NBA and https://twitter.com/-Sports
