Boston led 111-109, and after the game, Embiid - who would have gone to the line if the call was made - felt he was fouled.

After winning just 28 games a year ago, the Sixers finished the regular season with 52 wins and won a playoff series for the first time since 2012. "So, second series and I'm learning, there's a lot of things I learned this series that I didn't against Miami so that makes me a better player, so I'm grateful for those opportunities".

The franchise center said he and Simmons "have a lot of room to grow", and referenced the beginning of the Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook era in Oklahoma City as an example of how two young talents can reshape an organization. "And it'll be a lot easier for us to come in and get games done and not put ourselves in a hole like we did".

"I'm excited to learn from this stuff, because I felt like we had a pretty good chance", the big man continued, "but you've just gotta learn from it and we're gonna be fine".

"The feeling right now is I didn't want to be done", Simmons said.

The loss meant they were knocked out after losing the seven game series 4-1.

"At the end of the game (Simmons) came up to me and showed me his hands and was like, 'There's gonna be a lot of rings on these.' I was like, 'For sure'".

A year later, having helped the Sixers significantly further that process with a run to the Eastern Conference semifinals, the veteran sharpshooter indicated that he hopes to remain in Philadelphia in the future.
