Smart's defensive abilities were sorely missed down the stretch, and Embiid went on to have a massive night, finishing with 37 points, and further solidifying the Sixers' claim to third place in the Eastern Conference standings. Smart quickly got up after the play and shoved Embiid to the floor. Smart was immediately ejected upon getting a flagrant foul 2.

After the Sixers beat Charlotte on Tuesday, JJ Redick said on NBC Sports Philadelphia broadcast, "Psychologically, we need to figure out how to beat these guys". That's just part of it. Smart appeared to challenge Embiid to continue the fight on the side as he was being walked to the locker room. "We don't want to take a step back just because we lost to a good team at their spot".

Kyrie Irving made the technical free throw for Boston.

Barra and Trump initially had a good relationship as she joined him for meetings and roundtables promoting the USA auto industry. That may be one reason why Trump joined a coalition of OH lawmakers in efforts to get the Lordstown plant running again.

However, as Boston is more of a jump shooting team than the 76ers, it stands to reason that Philadelphia would get to the line more.

The Celtics entered the night without one of their hottest offensive players in Gordon Hayward, who had been placed into the concussion protocol ahead of the trip. It's what they missed the most in their best-of-7 series against the Celtics past year, Philadelphia didn't have a scorer who they could rely on down the stretch who could put the ball on the floor and take matters into his own hands to close out opponents.
