Bazemore downplayed the situation with Beal when asked about it following Monday’s game. “I guess you can’t joke anymore,” he said, adding, “I don’t say things to ruffle feathers, but … if you want to know what my loyalty is, it’s to [Curry]. Anyone out there chasing him, it’s gonna be tough.”
Asked if he would reach out to Beal to describe what he meant by the remark, Bazemore replied, “There’s nothing really to explain — I was laughing, jokingly, half-heartedly said it.” He went on to say that there was “nothing malicious about that comment. “It was 11:30 in the morning, 12 o’clock, I was off my Bulletproof Coffee feeling good, enjoying seeing you guys’ faces, and that’s kind of what it was. I don’t know, man. I don’t think I would have reacted that way. But to each their own — he’s a great player, played against him for a long time, he’s been getting better every year, so [I wish him] a speedy recovery, I hope that helps.”
His plans for the rest of the night did not appear to include Beal or Twitter. “I’m gonna go home, love up my wife, watch some Peaky Blinders and go to bed. I got work to do tomorrow.”

Derek Bodner: Embiid, on whether losing in the playoffs has taken a toll on him: “I want to win. I do everything it takes to win. Losing is obviously gonna take a toll on me, and it does, and it’s doing it. But it’s also on me. I gotta be better.”
Chris Vivlamore: Embiid: “There is a lot of stuff that went wrong whether they can foul me all they want, whether it’s the whole officiating tonight. You got guys fouling, putting their hands up. Me going for a dunk and they don’t call anything. …
