    Jokic is the MVP and I don’t think it’s even close

    So he meant to miss it? Why would he? That would have made it impossible to tie if he did, even with a deprecation 3 like Embiid I guess almost made.

    Because he makes it, Sixers get a timeout and advances the ball. Rather have the Sixers have the ball on our end with .8 then on theirs. I guess. Doesn’t make sense.

    Seems like a weird take. They have been routinely winning playoff style games against good teams.

    They were out of timeouts and so what if they did you just have to avoid fouling for the 4 point play. That free throw would have put us up by 4.

    Maybe he simply missed it.

    Up 3 they can tie the game, but up 4 they can't.

    I think he was just tired, at least I hope he was. That didn't seem to me to be the situation where you benefit from missing the free throw.

    You just.beat the #1 and #3 teams in the Eastern Conference on the road. What's next?

    Well...we think it might be time to start playing well

    Well with 0.3 seconds left the idea you can catch it and heave an accurate 3 that far is just one in a million

    Starting this roadie 2-0 is huge. I don’t care that the Sixers had some guys out. They had the MVP, they’re pushing for HCA in the conference, Book played like crap for the first 46 minutes and we lost Crowder. That’s a great win, IMO.
