Embiid explains Instagram rant: 'I just want the green light to play'

76ers Joel Embiid To Remain Sidelined For Game 2

The Warriors - still missing the injured talisman Stephen Curry - outclassed a physical San Antonio from three-point range in a devastating display of scoring.

Kevin Durant sparked a decisive third-quarter run on the way to 32 points, while Klay Thompson added 31 points and five assists in another superb playoff performance. They shot 50 percent of threes; we made 14 percent, four of 28 or something. Why substitute? Finish with what got you there. And it's been like that the entire year on the road for us, for whatever reason. "As he showed tonight, he still has it". "That made it very hard".

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 34 and took 12 rebounds for the Spurs, while Patty Mills registered 21. Brown should have told the Sixers that in the second quarter when Miami began to exert their defensive dominance.

"They took it to us first half", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Simmons found his groove in the second half as he got more aggressive and became more of a scorer.

Game 3 is on Friday (NZT) as the series shifts to San Antonio.

Wade's 28-point performance on Monday night was predictable, but he was aided by a ideal storm of missed Sixers' shots and untimely turnovers as the Heat evened the series, 1-1, with a 113-103 victory on Monday. Experience dominated in Game 2 and Miami found the ideal answer to adjust to the 76ers' fast-paced offense. Having a 7-foot ace in the hole is nice, but as the series heads back to Miami, the Heat look capable of dragging things out at minimum, with Wade as the closer they needed all season.

Miami's starters moved the ball and forced the young Sixers to make decisions, something Philly was inconsistent at. "I love the stage". I play the game for these moments. "To be able to hush a whole crowd, that's a great feeling".

Internally, there is optimism that Embiid will return when the series is in Miami, though it's unclear if that will be for Game 3 on Thursday, according to sources.

Embiid posted a blank photo on Instagram during Brown's press conference that read "F--ing sick and exhausted of being babied".

"He just wants to play basketball", he was quoted as saying by NBC Sports Philadelphia.

"I'm guessing watching his team claw their way back and then have the game slip out of their fingers while he was stuck on the bench got to him".
