The 76ers center tried to spin down, thew an elbow to Allen's face and dropped his opponent immediately.

Dudley has been cleared to play in Game 3 of the series on Thursday night at Barclays Center, and will undoubtedly attempt to take away Simmons' "easy baskets" again.

Philadelphia emerged with a 145-123 victory on the back of a 51-point third quarter to tie its first-round series with Brooklyn at 1-1.

Now, Dudley isn't completely wrong with his view on Simmons' game, and the first two games of their opening-round playoff series are ideal examples.

With four games left to play, here are 3 things we learned from the Reds' clean sheet win at Anfield. "You have to believe, otherwise you can stay home next time".

The Brookyln Nets secured a 111-102 victory against the Philadelphia 76ers in the National Basketball Association play-offs.

The Nets collapsed in the second half, outplayed and overmatched much as expected by pundits and bookmakers (they were 7.5-point Game 2 underdogs).

And he gingerly moved back down the court, clearly limping on his left leg.

Johnson was caught by TV cameras sitting on the bench and scrolling through his phone late in the fourth quarter, with the Sixers down 16 points in an eventual 111-102 loss. Leonard scored 25 points, Pascal Siakam had 24 and Fred VanVleet had 14 for the second-seeded Raptors, who reclaimed the lead after trailing by 16 points in the second quarter, but couldn't hold on down the stretch.

Boston's offense finally came alive in the third quarter when they played with some gosh darned PACE! "We held them to 84 points". Jaylen Brown got the start for Marcus Smart , who is out with a torn oblique, and made just one of the five shots he attempted.

But unlike in Game 1, the Nets crumbled under the pummeling Philadelphia delivered with the second flurry.

Philadelphia's star center Joel Embiid was listed as questionable leading up to the contest, but made a decision to suit up. They ranked ninth in the league this season in transition offense, averaging 21.4 points per game. Simmons has been exposed numerous times in the playoffs as opposing coaches have game-planned for him - but his lack of production might also be the fault of his own head coach.

It was the 13th time a team scored at least 145 points in a playoff game and the first instance in a regulation game since the Boston Celtics put up 157 points in 1990 against the New York Knicks.

Brooklyn hung tough for the opening half of Game 2 of the series before getting obliterated in the third quarter of the game. One of his three-pointers was from a distance of about 30 feet. Even if he's able to step it up, the Nets looked fully capable of handling the Sixers with Embiid less than 100 percent. If they can repeat their performance on that end of the floor, they will have a good shot at a potential 2-0 lead. Brooklyn didn't seriously threaten the rest of the way. He scored 22 points with 15 rebounds, five blocks and four assists, but even his strong showing wasn't enough.

The Nets were led by Spencer Dinwiddie's 19 points. Brooklyn is now 43-41 on the season, 23-18 at home, 46-38 against the spread and 42-42 with the over/under total.
