Drake, Raptors fans mock Joel Embiid's airplane celebration

Drake, Raptors fans mock Joel Embiid's airplane celebration

As Jimmy Butler added about Simmons, "That's how we need him to be". "Right now, this is what I have to do in order to give us a great chance at winning".

Approximately 45 minutes before tip-off of Game 5 in Toronto, Joel Embiid walked out of the tunnel wearing a hoodie to begin his pregame warmups. The Milwaukee Bucks await the victor.

Leonard and the Raptors had no answers for Butler and All-Star guard Ben Simmons.

"It was fantastic focus".

And Embiid confirmed he told Drake after Tuesday's game that he would be back in Toronto on Sunday for Game 7. "We know that we're more than capable of getting it done in the next game", Lillard said.

"Coming in, knowing that this was a do-or-die situation", Embiid said, "I knew that I had to come in with high spirits". "If I've got to play 45 minutes and push myself out there, that's what I'll do".

Embiid is larger than life, even for the National Basketball Association.

If it does not happen we will be proud because nobody expected Tottenham to be in the position they are today. Then in the 39th minute, Chelsea on loan striker Mitchy Batshuayi restored Palace lead to make it 2-1.

Nikola Jokic top scored for the Nuggets with 29 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists.

"Didn't have a good night, didn't sleep, was throwing up, got an six in the morning", Embiid said.

Siakam turned out to be a game-time affirmative to take part in Game 4 after a calf bruise and some hamstring tightness put his involvement in the pivotal matchup in jeopardy. "Sometimes I shoot it when I'm not open". Although everybody knew that Embiid was fighting some sort of gastroenteritis issue about a week ago while the team was still in Toronto, he seemed to be okay just the other night as the Sixers made their home debut for this series.

Acknowledging the pressure his team faced Thursday, Sixers coach Brett Brown, who has heard his owner's expectation to advance further than the second round loud and clear, said the collective mindset was apparent. "The mood in the locker room, you could sense the serious side". "I got to play".

In Portland, Damian Lillard had 32 points, including 17 in the third quarter, and the Trail Blazers staved off elimination to force a decisive Game 7 in their series with Denver.

The victor of Sunday's game will face the victor of the series between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets.
