The Brooklyn Nets got their first taste of the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.
Brooklyn lost the game by 20 points against Joel Embiid and James Harden.
After the match ended and the Sixers got their first win of the series, the Nets head coach had some things to say.
Jack Vaughn was not pleased with the officials and called them out for not making the call against Embiid.

Some might say she’s already getting the superstar treatment, but Vaughn’s getting none of it.
Even though Embiid and Harden had a solid game, posting 26 and 23 points respectively, Brooklyn had no response for them.
The Nets looked more dangerous than before the series started, but the Sixers were too much.
They will look to level the series in Game 2, but after the first match, that seems unlikely.
Like the Boston Celtics, the Sixers look comfortable in the first round of the post-season.
It’s too early to tell, but they may be on course to finally win an NBA championship.
For Vaughan and his team, they need to make adjustments if they want to win at least one game.
Mikal Bridges was their best player in Game 1, and they expect the rest of the team to join them.
It’s a complicated situation for the Nets, who started this season as championship favorites.
Now, they’re fighting to get at least one win against the 76ers.
