Brown: Simmons deserves credit for his defense

Sixers coach Brett Brown said the teams' prior meetings this season had no bearing on the future -- and that he expects Ben Simmons to be up to the challenge of Kawhi Leonard that lies ahead.

J.J. Redick on Kawhi Leonard, who he played against for years in the West, and how he compares to the player he was before missing most of last season in San Antonio: "I think he's better. He's pretty damn good."

The Sixers say Mike Scott is continuing to suffer from a bruised right heel as well as plantar fasciitis in his right foot. Obviously a concern for Philly's top bench option ahead of the series starting Saturday.

Too much Kawhi Leonard, who is blunting every defensive tactic Orlando throws at him. He now has 32 points on 12-for-18 shooting from the field. Toronto leads 92-75 with eight minutes remaining in Game 4.

The Magic are generating quality offense ... at buzzers. Terrence Ross drains a frantic, 30-foot 3-pointer to end the third after draining a half-court shot Friday at the halftime buzzer. Toronto leads 82-70 with one quarter to play in Orlando in Game 4.
