    Got you guys on the money-line tonight though, I need Embiid in there : )
    Reed wanted back at him long after Embiid got up.

    Embiid is causing a ton of problems for Clippers bigs.

    Embiid faked like he was going to attack Reed then stopped himself. I don't blame Reed.

    Embiid needs to remove the 3pt shot from his game until he finds it again. His outside-in offense is a complete disaster this season. He's straight up bad on O without that shot + all the turnovers.

    Interesting time to say that considering he has 19 points at the half on 7-12 shooting.

    1-4 from three (his average), and I've been watching him/them a lot. He's a wreck offensively. Stands at the top of the key clapping for the ball, misses his threes wildly, and is absurdly turnover prone (thinks he's a guard out there, but his handle is not good... obviously as he's a 7 footer). Ultimately it's bad coaching because the skill and potential is clearly there, but Embiid is just plain bad on offense at this point with how he currently plays.

    I mean again...19 points and 7-12 shooting. 1 TO. Sucks. Might as well trade him.

    23% from three for the year. 97 O rating (beyond horrible). 6.1 turnovers per-36 minutes (from a center... unimaginably horrible). Negative 1.5 Offensive BPM.

    Glad you enjoyed that 1st half. I'll be over here in reality.

    Boston would be extremely lucky to have Hayward return in any sort of impactful capacity. Integration aside, he won't be able to just hop in after such a horrible injury and contribute as if nothing happened. He'd have to get in basketball shape, find his shot/rhythm, and be able to play intensely in that playoff atmosphere. If you look at most long-term (6+ month) injuries, it takes quite awhile for those players to be anything more than a detriment on the court.

    As for the talent on the C's, I see Kyrie. Tatum/Brown look to be future players, but to depend on 1st/2nd year players so heavily in the playoffs would be premature. Horford has gotten completely dominated 3 years straight (2 ATL, 1 BOS) by Love/TT.

    I'd bet on the Cavs in a CLE/BOS series (without a fully healthy/integrated/feet-under-him Hayward) 24/7 and twice on Sundays.

    Not buying it. They're a far better spaced team this year than last with JJ alone. And despite Embiid's struggles are a 40% 3pt shooting team (last year 34%). He does not need to be sitting out there clapping for the ball at the top of the arc as much as he does. He's truly the last guy on the floor they should want with the ball there. Simmons is a slasher, he's not clogging the lane on post-ups. And if embiid is in the area they can utilize the CP3/DJ mini-oop with how good of a passer Simmons is.

    Quickly realizing Simmons is already the best player on this team.
