Turning this game right off.
guess they thought it was going to be an easy walk over game.
Blew a chance to jump Indiana and let Boston gain
Watched the first quarter, disappointed but not forlorn. Btw, watching on DVR, started late, putting kid to bed, then got distracted by Nature on PBS with Sir David Attenborough. So, finish watching the first, fast forward on DVR, accidently end up about 7 minutes into the 2nd qtr cause remote is a piece of ****. Sixers still losing, impossible to watch from beginning of 2nd qtr because why? Watch 3 minutes, then get impatient and click ahead another 5 mins, Sixers still losing. Rinse, Wash, Repeat, Sixers end up losing by ~17 pts, and I only had to watch ~25 minutes. Avoided a lot of nothing I reckon. Nas v. Chi game is much more entertaining.
This was a bad bad loss. Need to beat these creampuffs. To keep pace with the #4 spot the Sixers currently have, and to pad the record because I'm not sure they've turned the corner to beat the actual good teams.
Never underestimate the capacity of a young team to play like complete crap.
I keep restating this but get the "win now" BS out of your mind. Jimmy Butler makes little difference in the actual timeline.
Kawhi (440), Kyrie (477), Giannis (431) all have played almost double the games that Simmons + Embiid have played combined (274)...
...in the regular season not even counting playoffs (Embiid+ Simmons playoff games are factored in).
When you count playoff games played the margin becomes even more stark.
That's your 2 best players.
Youre 3rd best player is Jimmy Butler who only shows up on offense once every 3 games and is a total nutcase.
With no bench. And an offensive system as inscrutable as the Gordian Knot. The 4th best defender on the team is Wilson Chandler.
But yeah, sure, we should be beating MVP candidates in their prime and guys with multiple long playoff runs under their belt hitting clutch shots.
Sixers have been competitive for all of a year and half. Yet people wanna complain about fit.
If this is Embiid’s knee again then it’s a little bit concerning.
No Embiid?!?!? Ugh
Not a guaranteed win now
I hate these gray jerseys
There’s our backup stretch 5
Also Sixers have inquired about Lin. So he should put on a showcase for Brett
Haven’t watched a sixers game in almost 2 weeks. What have I really missed other than the whole Butler thing? Just turned this one on.
Nothing much. Still can’t beat the top teams
Fun down the stretch here
Huerter looks like he should be in high school. And he’s killing the Sixers.
I guess it’s Jimmy Butler time.
The Dinwiddie of Atlanta...
Of course he misses
Fire Wilson and Muscala into the sun.
Take TJ out of the rotation completely and give all his minutes to Shamet.
Give the remainding Shamet minutes to Shake.
This is a tanking team without Embiid. So sad lol
