Portland will also try to send a series the distance on Thursday, hosting Game 6 against Denver, which has won two straight for a 3-2 lead behind Nikola Jokic, its dominant center. On a conference call with reporters on Monday afternoon, Brown would only say that he had no update on Embiid's condition.
Brett Brown isn't a fan of the criticism Joel Embiid is receiving. That would be an incredible loss considering the fact that a flagrant-2 comes with a mandatory ejection. Embiid was limited to 11 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, numbers the Raptors will live with for the remainder of the series if they can get them. "But I've just got to do more".
"If you see me smile that means I'm doing what I'm supposed to do", he said after Game 5, "and I intend to be doing that in two days".
Embiid had a burst of energy late in the third when he blocked a driving Leonard, and Simmons capitalized with a basket for an 18-point cushion.
To his credit, Embiid took the high road when the Scotiabank Arena crowd antics were raised in his post-game news conference.
Embiid also refused to use his ill health as an excuse during the series, saying Tuesday night he was just trying to " do the right thing" and "come out and fight".
"It's the evolution of a 22-year-old, 6'10 point guard that used to be a college four-man".
As Jimmy Butler added about Simmons, "That's how we need him to be". This time, Embiid's issues are diagnosed as an "upper respiratory infection.' It was unclear that Embiid was sick during his time out on the court on Sunday, but it was obvious that the Sixers" big man wasn't playing as well as he typically would. "If I've got to play 45 minutes and push myself out there, that's what I'll do".
The 76ers star averaged 27.5 points and 13.6 rebounds per game during the regular season, and he acknowledged he needs to be better.
Game 7 is Sunday night in Toronto. "Tonight I made a couple of mistakes that I've got to fix". "He draws a lot of attention so for us we can make plays", Simmons said of Embiid.
