Overall Game Analysis
Philadelphia had a tough time stopping Boston, constantly being punished for collapsing on drives. Embiid's frustration inside accumulated in taking some ill-advised threes, and despite strong complementary performances from Butler and Simmons, Philadelphia were unable to get the job done

Comments on Coaching
Brown is clearly still figuring out how to both implement his new stars into the offense and into the rotation. Growing pains are to be expected
