Closing moments of season-ending playoff loss will motivate Joel Embiid

Sixers head coach Brett Brown apparently figuring he talks to his players enough on game days brought in a ‘mentalist’ to entertain his troops at a dinner in Boston Tuesday night

Sixers head coach Brett Brown apparently figuring he talks to his players enough on game days brought in a ‘mentalist’ to entertain his troops at a dinner in Boston Tuesday night

Following the Game 5 victory, a clearly frustrated Joel Embiid walked off the court without shaking any hands and that reportedly upset a bunch of players on the Celtics.

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. 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. 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).

FG Step Up Efforts Over Fresh Ebola Outbreak
Similar measures helped Africa's most populous country contain the virus during the West African epidemic that began in 2013. Congo's long experience of Ebola and its remote geography mean outbreaks are often localised and relatively easy to isolate.

There were many mistakes in the series that led to them being put in the position to now being out of the playoffs in the second round.

Much of what fans witnessed during the Sixers series with the Celtics was simply the product of a young basketball team, untimely turnovers, poor shot selection and defensive lapses but if they learn from this, the future in Philadelphia could be very, very bright. We got a lot of talented guys; we didn't play our best. "I feel like I had a lot more to go", he said.

Gmail's Smart Compose will autocomplete your emails
A Google spokesperson told the Daily Dot that Smart Compose is "trained on billions of common phrases and sentences". One of the coolest features of Inbox was its Smart Reply feature, which has since made its way to Gmail directly.

Simmons apparently shares the same level of confidence, as Embiid revealed that the 21-year-old came up to him after Wednesday's loss and said the duo is going to win a lot of championships together. "We have a bright future".

Taylor Swift Showers love and warmth on her fans
Isabella couldn't believe it when Swift walked into her hospital room Saturday, greeting the young girl with big smiles and hugs. The children and their adoptive families were invited to come watch Swift's final dress rehearsal on Sunday in Glendale, Arizona.
