Joel Embiid had a good game in the offensive end against the Boston Celtics in Game 2 of the opening playoff round series in the East.

Embiid finished the contest with 34 points and 10 rebounds, but that was not enough for the Sixers in a blowout 128-101 loss.

“It would be a different story if we were going back to Philly because we never seem to lose in front of our fans,” he said, per Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times. “We got to be more physical than them. We got to keep moving the ball. We just got to keep on going. I guess I got to do more.”

Philadelphia had a horrendous shooting night on Wednesday’s game with Tatum and the rest of the Celtics’ players picking up the Sixers’ defense easily.

Next game, the third of the series, will be played on Friday.
