Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (21) drops to the floor as the ball bounces out of bounds after hitting him, as Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier, right, points during the final seconds of Game 5 of an NBA basketball playoff series in Boston, Wednesday, May 9, 2018. This was a process to get to the conference finals, we didn't.

After winning just 28 games previous year, the Sixers finished the regular season with 52 wins and won a playoff series for the first time since 2012.

"Me and Ben, we have a lot of room to grow", Embiid said. And going into the playoffs we felt like we had a really good chance, especially after winning 16 in a row (to close the regular season).

Rodney Hood expressed remorse, won't be disciplined by Cavs
Hood has struggled since Cleveland acquired him at the National Basketball Association trade deadline. The stunt certainly raised eyebrows across the organization.

The Celtics used an 8-0 run late in the fourth quarter to finish off the 4-1 series victory. "I will let [Sixers president and general manager Bryan Colangelo], my agent and the events over the next two months play out, and we will make a decision".

Rookie-of-the-Year candidate Ben Simmons had a hard start to the series and had one of his worst stretches of basketball play the entire season. So with the Sixers officially eliminated from the playoffs to see their offseason officially get underway, let's take a look at three final thoughts from the tough series loss to the Celtics. [Simmons] came up to me, showed me his hands, and said there's going to be a lot of rings.

Sixers fans will love this confidence amongst their own players as it truly means there could be a bright future ahead of this group of players.
