I feel so bad for both of us 2nite.... OKC will take revenge and beat us after how you guys bust their ***.... but most importantly i normally pick the lakers but not tonight lol... you guys have been bent over by calls and are going against the one dude that will force over 15 free throws tonight while initiating the contact xD... Tonight you will be angry and will understand why i hate how harden plays basketball. I dont mind when a guy drives and forces contact but what this dude does is on another level and the refs baby him like nobody i have ever seen. Ball/Ingram/Kuz will go off and should have great games against a horrid defense but harden will get 15 alone from the line... then factor in his 3s and so on down the list and he probably goes for 50.

He cant defend anyone... As for the other thing Brett should have never sat embiid for that 2 minutes with 5 plus minutes to go when we were on a 13-2 run... it killed us.

It was what I thought was right call. I think Westy actually stumbled a the moment Joel thought he was going go up, Joel went up expecting to be going for a block and obliterated Westy. Most of if not all the contact was unintentional still in today's NBA the Sixers were very lucky an intensional was not called.

I am not mad at the loss. I just hope we go 6 and 6 over these 12 games while working on things. When this team is on they look unbeatable... Jimmy/Joel/Ben is coming along nicely but my god brett needs to get over his man love for TJ and work on his substitutions of the big 3. Brand needs to get us help at the backup PG position. Watching whoever TJ is guarding abuse him is becoming a bit much... We run a lineup of him and reddick and that basically makes us play 3v5 on defense.

lol... okc took a timeout... the only thing that should have been said is dont let pg13 touch the ball.

Sometimes easier said than done. Adams freed him up with a screen, Embiid could've stepped up, but that leaves Adams open. Maybe worth it lol

basically when people complain about him not taking jump shots... its a pretty sweet comment and fits perfectly... one doesnt need to swim if he can walk on water. Ben without a jumper is putting up a 17/10/8 at this point on 58 percent shooting which is insane... by the end of the season at what he is doing he will easily be over 18ppg game... he does everything all while being an insane defender but all people worry about is a jump shot.

No one says he is a bad basketball player just that his inability to shoot is a concern. It is

[Siegel] Mark Jones on Ben Simmons: "It's like watching a guy walk on water and saying, 'he can't swim.'"

Ben only took 12 shots today. I'd like to see him take more and start dominating games offensively. He'll be 23 when next season starts. That's not a youngling anymore technically speaking. Would love to see him start scoring 22-24 consistently. Butler was put in such a weird position there because we knew Ben wasn't going to do anything other than act as a decoy. Butler didn't expect us to double up on him so quick and took a terrible shot.. Now, imagine if Ben Simmons was Kevin Durant. Do you think they double up on Jimmy B? That's the hole in Ben's game. He'll get you his 16 off easy baskets but the appearance of being an offensive threat really helps the load off other guys.

i think ben made the right decision... he actually said after the game he thought about pulling up and shooting the 3 but seen butler sag off... clearly he was scared to shoot it but had he shot and missed that jimmy would have been pissed and rightfully so.

[Bontemps] Ben Simmons says he was ready to pull up for what wouldíve been a potential game-winning three on the final play before he saw Jimmy Butlerís man sag off him, and got him the ball instead.


Now I dont believe him and call BS but i feel like this will make him start forcing them soon which is both good and bad. This shot its def good he gave it to jimmy... I feel like if he took and missed horribly him and jimmy would have had issues.

Russ is a moron. Laying down there like an idiot crawling on the floor and then jumping up like he drank ten cans of red bull. He doesn't even realize that the only reason Embiid fell on him was because he thought Russ was going to go for the layup and tried blocking it but when Russ dug under and tried to pass it, Embiid being 7 foot couldn't keep up and landed on Russ. It was a normal play but looked way worse because Embiid is huge compared to Russ.

Can't wait to see what this punishment looks like.

To be fair this was a case of the refs making themselves the main attraction of the game. Back to back awful calls. First tech was deserved because he was yapping directly at the ref. The double tech when Smart and Bembry were talking and a ref from the opposite side of the court gave them a double tech was just soft and awful for both guys.

As for Smartís actions afterwards, there really isnít much to say. Based off the suspensions handed earlier in the year, heíll probably get 2 games or so and a fine. He deserves it too.

But overall, his intensity is what makes him great and it is his downfall as well. At least it inspired the Cs. They were god awful in the first half. They gave up 68 points to the awful Hawks. After that happened, Cs basically played hard and clamped down on the Hawks. They allowed like 30 pts to the Hawks the entire second half.

Smart is having a career year and probably should be in the DPOY year conversation (to garner some votes not to win FYI), but he seems to have at least one of these explosions every year. Maybe he just needs to get it out of his system or something. Sad because he might miss that GS game during prime time next Saturday. Last year he missed the GS game for a similar thing (he punched a mirror and sliced his hand). That was one of the best regular season games of the year from what I can remember with Kyrie and Steph just going at it.

So I want to talk about how Marcus Smart doesn't live up to his last name. Gets his second tech, then decides to attack Bembry, not once but twice. Didn't leave the floor in a timely manner and tried to star a melee.

Can't wait to see what this punishment looks like.

Hopefully just a fine. I think he is a Smart player btw, he just plays with a chip on his shoulder which I know the league is trying to legislate out of the game but its actually a pretty important component of competitive sports imo

To be fair this was a case of the refs making themselves the main attraction of the game. Back to back awful calls. First tech was deserved because he was yapping directly at the ref. The double tech when Smart and Bembry were talking and a ref from the opposite side of the court gave them a double tech was just soft and awful for both guys.

As for Smartís actions afterwards, there really isnít much to say. Based off the suspensions handed earlier in the year, heíll probably get 2 games or so and a fine. He deserves it too.

But overall, his intensity is what makes him great and it is his downfall as well. At least it inspired the Cs. They were god awful in the first half. They gave up 68 points to the awful Hawks. After that happened, Cs basically played hard and clamped down on the Hawks. They allowed like 30 pts to the Hawks the entire second half.
