"We've got to play better defence". "Yes", Brown replied, letting a smile escape from the corners of his mouth.

He scored 24 points on 6-for-12 shooting when Gasol guarded him Thursday, including 3-for-3 on 3-pointers and 9-for-9 from the foul line, according to ESPN Stats & Information. According to, Leonard scored 27 of his 45 points when he was defended by Philadelphia's starting forwards, doing so on an nearly flawless 10-for-11 shooting from the field. In just 28 minutes of action, the All-Star registered 33 points, 10 rebounds and five blocked shots on the evening.

"Yeah, I think we probably should do some more pick-and-rolls".

"I've never played anywhere as loud as this so there's a lot of love".

Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam channeled their inner Michael and Scottie in Game 1, combining for 74 points in Raptors victory.

Oil Prices Fall Over Higher US Crude Inventories
An upward swing in fuel prices across India is likely as the nation will end its import of Iranian crude from tomorrow. Zanganeh also said Washington's stated aim to bring Iran's oil exports "to zero" was "an illusion".

Joel Embiid had knocked the air out of Toronto by the time he punctuated a Game 3 victory with a windmill dunk.

"But, you know, it happens".

You can't stop me.

The Sixers have shown the defensive chops, along with a more offensive chemistry, to win this series. My mind goes straight there. His coach would later call him the 76ers' "crown jewel".

It's a very good sign for 76ers bettors when Joel Embiid contributes just 12 points and six rebounds and you can still come away with a road win in the playoffs. Serge Ibaka (four points) and Marc Gasol (seven) were also non-factors. It was such a negative reaction after I said it that no one heard I also said he was elite in transition and an elite passer. "When I have fun, my game just changes", said Embiid, who was wearing a hoodie with his now-famous brand "The Process". "I'm always told that if I don't smile during the game that I'm either having a bad game or I'm not into it". "To get my game going, I've got to have fun on the court...." Again they lost, leaving so many questions behind. "We're the type of team that everybody can step up".

They are playing with the best player majority will ever get a chance to play with and with a real chance to go farther than majority have ever been. After making 36.7 percent of his 3-point attempts as a rookie - an exceptional mark for a centre - Embiid shot 30.4 percent from the perimeter as a sophomore. "He played his ass off".

Blue Jackets stun Lightning in National Hockey League playoff upset
Subban, Ryan Johansen, Roman Josi and Filip Forseberg, again all guys that have been here before and know how to get things done. The Penguins haven't had the greatest of seasons, but they still have the individual talent to get through to the second round.

The Sixers will get another home game Sunday.

Game One of the semifinal-round affair between the Raptors and the Sixers proved quite a shocker to not a few pundits. This for a team that went just 10-72 in the 2015-16 season as it played out the controversial rebuild known as "The Process" that was introduced by former general manager Sam Hinkie. That didn't work and they didn't get much help from the officials, which caused more frustration.

"We got our ass kicked after". Considering what we've been through all these years, we're here. We're not giving him any help.

And his teammates are focused on the special teammate they have in their midst. He repeatedly bit on Embiid's fakes, was caught out of position when guarding him in space, and got flat-out worked around the rim.

Butler replied without missing a beat.
