The Boston Celtics put themselves in a great position with a double digit lead, but fell apart at the end of the third quarter.
"I feel like I have my best years after 30", he said.
The Celtics are moving on to the Eastern Conference finals after beating the 76ers in Game 5 on Wednesday 114-112. And while they rallied from a 12-point deficit to take a four-point fourth-quarter lead, the reality was that they still have not had the long, long postseason run that their rebuilding process was created to produce. "So while trying to improve the roster, sort of bringing back as many guys as possible". And it could continue for a while.
The Celtics will be even more formidable in future postseasons once Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward return, as each player missed this year's playoffs with injuries. "I was thinking about it, just looking at [Kevin Durant] and [Russell] Westbrook, what they did the first season together, I think they won 28 games".
Salah wins Liverpool Players' Player of the Season award
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah revealed his desire to prove critics wrong from his time at Chelsea had motivated him this season. Sophie Ingle and Gemma Bonner won Liverpool Ladies' players' player of the season and player of the season respectively.
"I just like the spirit which we played the game", Brown said.
But overall, Brad Stevens is amused by the exterior angst. You're always looking over your shoulder and watching how they've chose to grow their program. No NBA team has ever rebounded from a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven series.
Brown has received many appraisals from his team in the form of McConnell and others for generating a soothing ambiance before Game 5 by having the mentalist amongst them. As souvenirs go, taking pride in that is unlikely. "This was a hard-fought series". It's a fine place to be, especially when you have a nine-figure contract already in your back pocket. Jaylen Brown, reinserted into Boston's lineup, dropped 24 in what he called an elimination-type game. "That was my message to the players". But he recovered Wednesday to provide 18 points and six assists.
While the Celtics were able to hold Simmons in check for much of the series and exploit his lack of shooting range - the lone weakness in the rookie's game - Beau Freedman said he sees a special player who will be among the NBA's elite very soon. To a point, it worked.
Le PSG devrait passer à la caisse — Fair-Play financier
Selon les informations de L'Equipe , le club de la capitale souhaite recruter deux joueurs de classe mondiale. Une mauvaise nouvelle désormais attendue au sein du PSG .
For the Sixers, it had to be hard watching Tatum torch the variety of defenders he saw - Simmons, Marco Bellinelli and primary defender Robert Covington - especially as their own offence seemed to lack a good dose of athleticism and shot creation, two areas where Tatum excels. Wilkerson, born in the Germantown neighborhood and now living in the Logan neighborhood, became a Sixers fan when Charles Barkley played for the Sixers in the mid-1980s. "So, the grind starts now, just to keep working and get better each and every day". I have a long way to go. "I will let (Sixers president and general manager Bryan Colangelo), my agent, and the events over the next two months play out, and we will make a decision". I don't take these opportunities for granted.
When asked what it's like to battle with Embiid for five straight games, he immediately perked up and said, "It's fun".
No doubt about it, the Sixers got outplayed by Boston in the playoffs - and last year's draft.
He believes that is possible ... and likely.

Brown , Edward James Olmos , Trevante Rhodes , Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane , Yvonne Strahovski , and Jacob Tremblay . Fox executive Stacey Snider said: "We've got a Predator film coming out that is unexpected and utterly fresh".
Simmons certainly felt like there was a lot more basketball left to be played, as he said: "The feeling right now is I didn't want to be done". We committed a lot of mistakes; we've got to learn from it.
