So therefore if the Heat win we count it as a win in my record and if they lose we donít count it because I said they would more than likely lose. Thanks!

Looking forward to this Sixers/Raps game but the Raps have owned us for some time now and Leonard is rested. But i do think we can take this one.

Hornets, Cavs, Magic, Celtics, Raptors, Rockets, Grizzlies, Thunder.

My reasoning:

1. HORNETS: Heat, Hornets and Bulls will be fighting for 2 out of the last ranking spots remaining in the East... any win between these 3 opponents counts against the othets and the Bees have the better team out of the three and Kemba on fire...

2. MAGIC: They have one of the best players on the world on Voucevic, to compete with the rookies of the Kings... he will eat them alive...

3.CAVS: Coach fired and a much better coach on bench... He asked for a multiyear contract and will want to prove it on the floor against a team that he has the roster to do it...

4. CELTICS: Two great coaches against each other, where one has the better roster...

5. ROCKETS: They've simply fallen too far behind and want this more so that they can make some ground back as soon as they can...

6.GRIZZLIES: They are playing against an Eastern team with no future... a great chance to win where other western competitors may fail, now that is early and they have the chance.

7. RAPTORS: Back to Back from a humiliating loss against an opponent they didn't expect on the Bucks and is there..., they want to make back their reputation for being the favorites on the East as soon as possible...

8. THUNDER: Heavy name to have been dropped so far behind... they want to make as much as they can of ground back asap.

Wade is cashing out from 3 this year shooting over 40% and also getting guys to fall for his patented pump fake and draw the foul from 3 as well. Itís really just a mindset some times. Heís told himself itís part of his game this year and heís sticking to it. Spo told him it has to be part of his game as well.

More-Than-Most
10-30-2018, 07:45 PM
fultz with 0 hesitation.... first 2 shots of the game were from fultz and both misses from 3... i can live with 19 straight misses as long as he shows no hesitation.

TJ is getting absolutely cooked by tony parker and then locked down on the other end. Spos rotations are always terrible and thereís no excuse for TJ over Ellington (the teams best shooter by far). Itís 4 on 5 on both ends with TJ out there.

Honestly thereís never been a point in their time in the NBA that LeBron has been better than Wade at any part of the game.

Markelle Fultz is the weakest link on the Sixers and the Raps are isolating on him.

you clearly arent watching the game because our worst player right now is amir... but the entire sixers roster is trash right now with the turnovers.


amir has 4 turnovers and a foul in 4 minutes and the majority of the post points from the raptors are when he is in game.

More-Than-Most
10-30-2018, 08:22 PM

I didn't realize how weak Embiid's post up game is. He seems to only be able to operate from top of the key. When he gets down low he just tries to power through. No moves or anything.

Amir Johnson LOL. That was pathetic.

As Raps fans we all know what he's about. He's a hustle guy, but not someone you can count on for anything.

i would rather play 5 foot 9 TJ at center over Amir.

i dont mind losing to a better team that is going to happen but this right here is ****ing disgusting. I dont want to hear the back to back excuses and ******** like that... to be this turnover prone and force amir minutes etc etc etc is inexcusable.

zn23
10-30-2018, 08:34 PM
Raps should be up by about 20+ if they just slow down a bit. They've gotten some turnovers and either just blown wide open layups or ended up turning the ball back over.

nope. Ben wont shoot and isnt a threat beyond the 3 point line. Embiid is a threat behind the 3 point line. you put your players in the best chance to succeed and that alignment sounds about right to me

JV has always kinda an underachiever. A Derrick Coleman type. He's a good player, but never lived up to what the Raps wanted him to be.

But coming off the bench is the right role for him.

embiid really isnt a threat beyond the line right now at 28 percent... its just not worth it... embiid inside forces double teams and opens up reddick/cov etc... ben inside does nothing

10-30-2018, 08:59 PM
Hey MTM, I don't watch Philly too much unless were going at it, so I have a question: Has Simmons worked on his mid-range shooting? Or is it more of a confidence thing to why he hasn't expanded his range?

10-30-2018, 09:05 PM

he works on it all the time but refuses to shoot... that is why i have 0 issues with fultz... i said all along i can live for the first month losing if ben and fultz are shooting even if they are shooting 35 or so percent... fultz is shooting ben isnt.

Miamiís far from soft. They have tough minded players, theyíre just missing the star to lead them.

Theyíre soft....
Whiteside puts up a monster 1st quarter last night, and then disappears
Richardson scores a career high in points
Dragic settles for the 3, then settles for the 3, and then
They lose at home to a young Kings team

They were literally only in the playoffs last year because of their toughness and fight. How is Richardson setting a career high a negative? Wasnít Whiteside fault he disappeared, Spo stopped playing him for some reason. Spos been terrible this year imo. Dragics shot selection has been **** so Iíll give you that. Theyíve also been missin 4 rotation guys early on.

Miami is playing soft defensively right now....but they arent a soft team. A lot of injuries and the rotations are wonky. Frankly, I don't expect them to start being themselves until mid-December.

Kawhi might be the early favorite for MVP.

After sitting multiple games, certainly not having the best stats in the NBA, and Lowry being equally as important thus far (better advanced stats at that), that's a tough 'early' sell. Remember, the Raptors are essentially a 60 win team pre Kawhi.

Good to see everyone here dipping their feet in the pseudo gambling waters with the game day predictions btw. Doing me proud kids.

NBA needs to do something about players diving for the ball when a player is retrieving it. It can put players away for an entire season and is stupid.

They will probably do what they did with Zaza ... wait until a star is hurt then make a toothless rule change and ignore it until the next injury happens.

Signing Carmelo to come off the bench (only starting because of multiple injuries to starters) for the league minimum is the least of their concerns this early.

He's started just 2 games :laugh:, but cleary an integral part of their rotation. What could go wrong? Who could have called it? Again, enjoy the road trip with Golden State ready to greet you at home. Bright times ahead.

6 games, calm down. Klay was hitting 14% from three until Monday and heís been in the same system for years with the same players. And a lot of people called it, but itís early. Am I expecting Denver Carmelo? Nope. But at the vet min, itís worth the chance.

And it wasnít working with DD in Toronto. Gotta take a chance to do something else and KL>DD.

lol ben cant score from under the basket either so whats the point?

Someone has to guard him down there, He should be able to make you pay when guarded by a little guy, he could force doubles teams and use his passing out of the post. Or he can wait until heís in his 30s to do that like LeBron

he took 2 shots directly under the basket and missed both... the 2nd miss he didnt hit rim lol... not even kidding. Him in the post limits his vision of the floor... His driving/passing is best and he should not be in the post and embiid isnt a good enough 3 point shooter to be standing behind the arc... I get why they do it but its clearly not working.

Simmons had some glaring holes in his game last year that he needed to work on. Itís looking like he hasnít made much or any progress.

what post game does ben simmons have? He has no in the post type moves and he isnt going to be banging with players that are smaller/shorter... If he is in the post a big body will be on him and further complicate things... Having a 7 foot 2 guy who is unstoppable not be near the rim is ****ing moronic esp when we are putting a guy there who can shoot a lick nomatter where on the floor he is.. ben simmons should be working on his shot not trying to be a paint paint player... This is insanity that this is even a discussion. Yes lets take the 7 foot 2 beast who cant be stopped anywhere inside the arc and put him outside the arc where he is shooting 29 percent and put our PG who is known for his vision in the post... I have no issues if he is doing it when embiid is off the floor and fultz is the PG.

You saw last year in the playoffs what happened when people forced the Sixers to play half court offense. Ben sat on the bench bc he wasnít guarded and his vision became useless when no one was guarding him. In order for a half court offense to be successful the guy with the ball needs to be a threat. One way to do that with Ben is to post him up on smaller guys. It will not only force his defender to guard him but will force help and allow him to use his vision. A 7 footer with six inches on the guy guarding him doesnít need much skill to be a threat in the post. Ben already has enough skill- im sure he could get better and more comfortable but dude is already a better finisher then i thought he would be and with his size.... That doesnít mean Joel canít post up or wonít be your main option in the post. I would think the examples set by Bron and Magic would be enough to show you that itís something that definitely should be worked on with Simmons. The fact that they tried it twice when he was having a bad night and he missed two good shots doesnít mean itís a bad idea

Fun fact: Steph Curry is more efficient from 2pt range than Embiid (a lot more efficient). And so was Simmons last year. OK, back to your program.
