Fultz has responded well to benching, says 76ers coach Brown

cd018f9f313870d2cb6ddcdad2650eac

Philadelphia 76ers rookie guard Markelle Fultz has been "unbelievable" in accepting his diminished role, according to head coach Brett Brown. Fultz – taken with the number one pick in the 2017 NBA Draft – has not played in the 76ers' last three playoff games due to Brown's decision, missing Monday's 117-101 loss to the Boston Celtics in game one of the Eastern Conference semi-finals. The 19-year-old missed most of the season recovering from a shoulder injury, and while he played very well in 10 games in March and April — including a triple-double in the season finale — Brown is more comfortable playing T.J. McConnell as backup to star point guard Ben Simmons.

No matter how many no-look, head-turning passes Ben Simmons made Monday night, it couldm't make amends for the stinker of a game that he and most his Philadelphia teammates played in losing 117-101 to the Celtics in Game 1 of their best-of-seven series. "We sucked, we sucked," said Simmons, who had more turnovers (7) than assists (6), said at 76ers practice on Tuesday. There are a number of things the Sixers will look to do in order to tie the best-of-seven series.

Celtics’ fans chant ‘not a rookie’ at Ben Simmons; Donovan Mitchell thinks it’s funny

67d13e26c255731acbdad5bcd9ebc05d

One concept in particular had a foothold with Team Mitchell: That Simmons isn’t really a rookie. Simmons spent his first year under NBA contract never setting foot on an NBA court for a game, so by the NBA’s official definition, he’s a rookie (and that’s ultimately the only definition that matters).

There was just one game on the National Basketball Association slate on Monday night, and it turned out to be a slight surprise, at least according to the Vegas oddsmakers. The Philadelphia 76ers entered the game installed as a favorite by a couple of buckets, but the Boston Celtics told them to slow their roll. The C's awakened the echoes of the old Boston Garden, taking care of the Sixers in first game of a series which hopefully renews and old-school rivalry.

Celtics fans did their best to ensure Ben Simmons will not forget his first playoff game in Boston and Donovan Mitchell loved every minute of it. Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers have been one of the main stories of the playoffs so far but they endured a difficult night on Monday, as they were swept aside by the Celtics in Game One of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
