76er starters accounted for 13 of the turnovers. Ben Simmons had five followed by Joel Embiid (4), Tobias Harris (3) and Danny Green (1).
In other pregame news before Game 2, Rivers declined to say whether Embiid would play or start but said he is “optimistic” the center would be available. Embiid, dealing a slight tear of the meniscus in his right knee, played in the opener. He finished with 39 points, nine rebounds, four assists and three blocks in 38 minutes.
