    Fouls on a 3 pointer happen way more often then 60 ft heaves in a fraction of a second.

    If they were out of timeouts then yeah it was dumb. That's on Monty though

    Sure, but getting 4 points on a play is literally impossible unless our players are dumb enough to foul on a three when up 4.

    I would have to double check, but I am pretty sure they were also out of timeouts.

    I think Paul simply missed the free throw.

    If Embiid hits that, to give him 41 and put the game into OT, it goes down as the greatest buzzer beater in regular season history.

    as is, it goes down as a W for us. Love it.

    There was no chance they could win it being down 4 with .8 seconds left. So he should have just made it to seal it.

    It's.the sort of win that makes you give a hard stare at games like the Spurs

    I was all for it as well. Still wasn't expecting this, but I did think we would be good.

    No. Anyone saying they expected this is lying.

    Monty doesn't think Paul missed the free throw on purpose.

    Reportedly Crowder tweaked his ankle. We will find out more tomorrow.

    good teams just have stinkers every once in a while. Reminded me of the 1993 Suns who were on fire and then just out of nowhere lost to the Nets at home by like 30.

    regardless, this team has been given me so much entertainment during a really rough time that I just can’t get mad at them for a loss like that. I’ll vent in threads, mostly during Ws and loom foolish at the end, but the losses are so few and far between that I can just throw them away this season.
