The NBA released its Last Two Minute Report for Game 5 on Thursday, and it confirmed the referees missed a foul on Baynes as Embiid missed a layup with the 76ers trailing 111-109. We committed a lot of mistakes [in the series].

As we always post in our mobile app (iOS/Android), here are grades and breakdowns for each Sixers player's performance and Brett Brown's coaching in the 114-112 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 5.

"Me and Ben have a lot of room to grow, "Embiid said". And going into the playoffs we felt like we had a really good chance, especially after winning 16 in a row (to close the regular season).

"We have a bright future". But by pairing Embiid with 2016 No. 1 pick Ben Simmons, Philadelphia found a young one-two punch as intimidating as any in the National Basketball Association.

The Pakistan Central Mines Labor Federation told the BBC that an average of 200 miners die in mine disasters every year. It urged the government to ratify the Safety and Health in Mines Convention of the International Labour Organisation.

The Celtics used an 8-0 run late in the fourth quarter to finish off the 4-1 series victory.

"I feel like we had more [to show]".

Simmons apparently shares the same level of confidence, as Embiid revealed that the 21-year-old came up to him after Wednesday's loss and said the duo is going to win a lot of championships together.

Sixers fans will love this confidence amongst their own players as it truly means there could be a bright future ahead of this group of players. They have a young, productive core led by Embiid and Simmons, plenty of cap space to add to a talented roster this offseason, and draft capital to help firm up the roster with more youthful talent.
