Monty HAS to give minutes to Frank at this point, right? Saric is the biggest liability on the team now, especially defensively. Give credit to the Sixers for making it much closer than it should have been in the last minute. Two tough threes and then that heave at the end that still gives me chills!
I think we play really physically in the paint but not up top like the sixers, bucks, and clippers do.
that one was the most insulting classic opposing player hits a playoff 3 to win or tie a playoff game against us.
I mean... We could understand the Paxson, loathe the Elie, but the Duncan?! That just felt like God was being downright cruel.
To be fair if those guys played then Booker likely has a much better game because Thybulle wouldn't be starting. Game would have looked quite a bit different, but the Suns may still have won.Props on the win last night gang. Tough with no Simmons and Toby, but thems the breaks. We certainly had a chance, but couldn't get key stops. I bow down. Good luck the rest of the way!
Primarily, yes. But let’s say Paul wasn’t able to carry them, Ayton’s inability to counter is a shortcoming of the team. His lame play tonight was evidence of that. Also, though we absolutely earned that win on the road against a top team, if we were at equal strength Ayton getting outdueled to that extent would likely have been our undoing. Mind you I italicized that phrase for a reason. I don’t expect Ayton to match embiid’s numbers. But to be outscored by 28 and outrebounded by 12 at the center position (actually it was a lot worse if you factor in Dario and Howard) is an enormous deficit to make up elsewhere.It's the W that counts.
