Make no mistake, Brooklyn to make it back-to-back wins is going to be no mean trick, now especially when the Sixers know only too well not to underestimate them again. Those were the franchise's most in a playoff game since 2002. Dr. David J Chao, who has gained notoriety for diagnosing National Football League injuries in real time on his Twitter account, believes that Embiid's injury is a long-term issue.
Between the frequent fouls called on Brooklyn, Jarrett Allen's foul trouble and the easy post buckets for Embiid, coach Kenny Atkinson turned to some familiar faces to turn the tide.

Caris LaVert added 23 points in 23 minutes off the bench for the Nets. His 64 games played marked a personal high in a young career that's been marred by injuries. Harris was even worse with four points on seven attempts. He's been at the center of fans' boos in the past while he was still playing with the Timberwolves after demanding a trade. With question marks over Embiid's health, winning this series might just end being a lot more hard than what most 76ers fans would've imagined at the end of the regular season.
