Ben Simmons delivered an All Star performance for Philly (31 points, 9 assists, 4 rebounds) on a night they were without Joel Embiid. He was impressive in the fourth with nine points, two assists, a block and a steal in a two-minute stretch late in the period to blow Game 3 open. Philly will take a 2-1 series lead.

Nets fans chant "Jimmy's leaving!" as free-agent-to-be Jimmy Butler shoots free throws for the Sixers midway through the fourth quarter.

The Sixers' once 18-point lead is down to 6 and Barclays Center — relishing its first home playoff game since May 1, 2015 - is amped. Philadelphia will have to earn this over the final 8 minutes of the 4th quarter.

Brooklyn opens the fourth by turning it over and missing its first four shots before D'Angelo Russell suns in and scores seven consecutive Nets points. Strong answer from the All-Star guard to keep the home team in the game.

Brooklyn finished the third quarter scoring eight unanswered points - including a four-point play from Spencer Dinwiddie - to cut Philly's lead to seven. The Barclays Center crowd, quiet for much of the third as Philadelphia methodically built a double-digit lead, is alive and well heading into the final period.

Simmons' pass leads to Harris and-1 (0:16)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

There's always a conversation around Ben Simmons' shooting but he and the Sixers probably don't get enough credit when they defend the way they have in Game 3. D'Angelo Russell and Joe Harris are a combined 8-for-24 and 1-for-8 from behind the arc for Brooklyn, which has trailed by double digits for much of the third quarter.
