Figured we can discuss the actual series and leave the trade talk in the other thread(s)

Saw on my phone today's game is free(?) to watch on ESPN even without cable subscription - be it on your phone or streaming device - I hope I'm reading that correctly as I just put ESPN on our Roku lol

As far as the series goes I think a pretty successful outting for Brooklyn and the twins would be a couple wins. 1 win wouldn't surprise much, 3 wins would constitute a 7 game series and a gasp by the entire NBA but 2 wins sounds pretty respectful all things considered

Game starts in about a half hour btw

End of first quarter

The reffing in the last few minutes has been ridiculous. Embiid's block on Bridges is a foul at the playground. He hit his entire body and arm before he even touched the ball.

Bridges is on another level. His confidence is on another level.

Twins playing OUTSTANDING basketball in their Nets playoffs debut

Cam Johnson 2-2 from deep, 4-5 from the field, 10pts

Mikal Bridges 10-16 from the field, 4 (much needed) rebounds and 23pts in the first half

But James Harden man... 5-7 from deep, 3 boards and 6 dimes

76ers lead the Nets 67-58 at the half

Fun watching the twins battle the Sixers. Halftime, Mikal with 23 points on 10-16 shooting. Cam with 10 points on 4-5 shooting.

If 23pts on 62% shooting in the first half is overrated than give me overrated players all day

Looks like James Jones traded Scottie Pippin. Mikal going to Brooklyn is going to elevate his profile, max deal incoming my man.

Mikal’s confidence is through the roof. He’s dribbling the ball nonchalantly as he goes into his dribble drive game. Happy for him and I know KD is a better player today, but man, he’s going to be an All-Star next year if he keeps playing like this.
