    Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons shined again in front of rapper Meek Mill http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-justin-schultz-jersey , and the dominant duo ushered the nightmares-into-dreams Process of the Philadelphia 76ers into the second round with a 104-91 win over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night.

    The 76ers, winners of 10 games just two seasons ago, are in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs for the first time since 2012.

    They await the winner of Milwaukee-Boston. The Celtics lead the series 3-2.

    The Sixers won the series 4-1 and turned the Wells Fargo Center into the wildest house party in the city. Embiid had 19 points and 12 rebounds, Simmons had 14 points and 10 boards, and the entire team had rappers, politicians, actors and kids dancing along for the ride.

    WARRIORS 99, SPURS 91

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Kevin Durant scored 25 points, Draymond Green led a smothering Golden State defense and the Warriors held off late-charging San Antonio to win Game 5 and advance to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs.

    Klay Thompson had another stellar shooting performance with 24 points, and Green contributed all over with 17 points Jake Allen Jersey , a career-playoff high 19 rebounds and seven assists. Golden State looked dominant until the fourth quarter even without injured two-time MVP Stephen Curry – and he could be back soon from a left knee injury.

    LaMarcus Aldridge converted a three-point play with 1:31 left that pulled the Spurs within 93-89, and then a pair of free throws at 57.2 to make it a two-point game. Green responded with a long jumper at the top of the key then two free throws with 9.1 seconds remaining.

    The Warriors will face New Orleans in the West semifinals beginning this weekend at Oracle Arena, having smoothly eliminated the Spurs aside from a brief Game 4 blip Sunday at San Antonio. New Orleans, coached by former Golden State top assistant Alvin Gentry, swept Portland in the first round.

    CELTICS 92, BUCKS 87

    BOSTON (AP) – Al Horford had 22 points and 14 rebounds, Marcus Smart made an impact in his first game since mid-March and Boston beat Milwaukee for a 3-2 lead in their first-round playoff series.

    Smart came off the bench and had nine points, five rebounds, four assists and three blocks in his first game since undergoing right thumb surgery. He played 25 minutes wearing a protective splint and had a key assist late from the bottom of a scrum beneath three Milwaukee players.

    Terry Rozier added 16 points and five assists for Boston. The home team has won all five games in the first-round series, and Game 6 is Thursday in Milwaukee.

    Khris Middleton led the Bucks with 23 points, Jabari Parker added 17 points and eight rebounds Patrice Bergeron Jersey , and Giannis Antetokounmpo had a series-low 16 points with 10 rebounds and nine assists.

    Michael Porter Jr. played only three college games but said he is ready for the grind of an NBA season.

    His back may not let him make good on that promise, but the Denver Nuggets‘ newest young player said he’s ready to go after being selected 14th overall in the NBA draft Thursday night.

    ”I have no reason to not believe that,” he said. ”I feel good.”

    Porter was limited to 53 total minutes as a freshman for the Missouri Tigers due to the back injury, which required surgery. He averaged 10 points and 17.7 minutes in the 2017-18 season.

    He said his back won’t be a problem, nor the hip that had him cancel most of his workouts for NBA teams and contributed to him falling to the last lottery spot in the draft.

    ”After pro day teams at the top of the draft telling me I was their guy, then I had that episode last week,” Porter said. ”Hip hurt and I think that kind of scared some teams.I was feeling really good, had a good pro day. I was jumping really good again and everything was coming back together. I just had a sore few days but I’m on the right track and I’m getting better every single day.”

    Denver decided Porter’s talent was worth the risk.

    ”We were very surprised, and happily so, that Michael continued to fall down the board,” Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly said. ”At some point it becomes a risk-reward ratio. We think he’s an elite talent Womens Marian Hossa Jersey , a guy with no back issues we wouldn’t have the good fortune of drafting. You have to take a swing at guys like that. You have to get lucky.”

    Connelly said the team’s executives and medical staff pored over Porter’s medical records and felt comfortable taking a chance on him.

    ”We’ve looked at so many medicals,” Connelly said. ”We felt well-informed every step of the way. We feel it’s a well thought-out and well-designed risk that we’re unbelievably happy is going to be in a Nuggets uniform.”

    Porter joins a young team with a strong nucleus that has missed the playoffs for five straight seasons. Denver’s offense starts with playmaking center Nikola Jokic, who has 16 career triple-doubles, 10 of which came last season for the 46-36 Nuggets.

    Denver finished a game out of the postseason each of the last two seasons.

    In addition to the 23-year-old Jokic, Denver’s young core consists of point guard Jamal Murray, 21, and shooting guard Gary Harris, 23, which gives the franchise a foundation to build upon.

    That foundation now includes the 6-foot-10 Porter, who turns 20 on June 29. He could immediately fill a need at small forward if veteran Wilson Chandler opts out of his contract and Will Barton, an unrestricted free agent Cam Atkinson Jersey Kids , doesn’t re-sign with Denver.

    ”I know they’ve got a good young point guard in Jamal Murray, Gary Harris at (shooting guard) can score the ball. Jokic, great passer, and Paul Millsap,” Porter said. ”It’s a good, good young team who is very unselfish and that’s what I like about it. That’s how I like to play. When I watch them that’s the feeling I get from them.”

    The Nuggets traded a future second-round pick to move up two spots in the second round to take Jarred Vanderbilt out of Kentucky at No. 41. They also drafted center Thomas Welsh of UCLA with the 58th pick.
