Heat's Hassan Whiteside on benching against stretchy 76ers: 'I trust coach'

Heat's Hassan Whiteside on benching against stretchy 76ers: 'I trust coach'

The third-seed Philadelphia 76ers rolled all over the seventh-seed Miami Heat on Saturday night in Game 1 of their first round playoff series, winning in a convincing 130-103 fashion. He underwent surgery to fix the fracture. Embiid had hoped to play in Game 2 after the NBA's concussion protocol, but the Sixers are being conservative with his return to the court and ultimately ruled him out.

Sixers coach Brett Brown later was forced to respond to an expletive-laced social media from injured star Joel Embiid, who wrote of his frustration at being "babied" after watching the loss from the sidelines. "I felt tonight it was a really strong example of how you wished you had him", Brown told reporters. "I just want the green light to play". "He wants to be with his team". He was a matchup problem as Philly spaced the floor and neutralized Miami's big man, Hassan Whiteside, who played just 12 minutes, 26 seconds.

His status for Thursday's Game 3 in Miami has not yet been determined. "And when he's not able to do that, he gets frustrated, and we respect his frustration".

The Turkish player had a lot of success with the Sixers last season after being acquired on November 1, 2016, from the Oklahoma City Thunder, along with a 2020 first-round draft pick, for Jerami Grant. "It's born out of competitiveness and its born out him wanting to be with his team". Ilyasova averaged 14.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and shot 35.9 percent on three-pointers in 53 games, including 40 starts, with the Sixers during the 2016-17 campaign.
