Without Embiid Iím very nervous about the Sixers down the stretch here. We barley got past the Heat and our small ball lineup will be a factor without Embiid and when Boban needs to sit. I have a bad feeling about today. We need homecourt throughout. If the season ended today we would be the 5th seed and playing in Boston first round [emoji31]

wont matter... we should never be this bad without embiid when we have this much star power and added depth... when is the last time we didnt get banged in the 3rd after halftime? it happened just last game against the heat and all year every year... our coach gets out coached every game and if we miss embiid against a good team we will never win and that was fine before when we didnt have butler/harris but when you use butler like we used covington and still let TJ be the primary ball handler when he/ben/Butler are on the floor we will get stomped.

he cant do it in this offense... He basically has to be the first one back on defense with ben trying to guard inside... This will all be blamed because we are missing embiid but the announcers said it best... they are just going inside all day with guys that arent even bigs and we are yet to help defend on a guy inside... this game plan is a joke.

Its cool... We will help defend inside in the final few minutes of this game... Its mind boggeling to me about how the game plan coming in was this awful... the announcers said the key is help defense inside and rebounding and we honestly had JJ guarding Harkless in the paint a few times with no help defense... we came in with the worst game plan I have ever seen in my life against a team that you knew would try to punch it inside. I am just letting it go until we get outcoached and banged by boston in the playoffs for people to realize the one big thing holding us back... I have never seen such a talented team be so stupid ever in sixers history... We have one of the most talented teams in the last 2 decades and we are by far the dumbest team and that is just so hilarious.

I love JJ but he shouldnt be a starter on a team... He is the perfect 6th man guy who can come off the bench against bench guys and score a ton... his defense is putrid and he is as much of a problem as anyone else playing defense for us this year... when he doesnt shoot great we are ****ed... We will likely lose him and TJ in the off season when we resign butler/harris and it will be a blessing... we run TJ/JJ a **** ton and they kill us whenever they are on the floor together. That being said JJ is killing us but he could be on fire and we would still be ****ed this game because they are just toying with us. You cant come into this game with this game plan and come away with a win.

If it were any other year maybe... The one thing they have built that they could have exploited would be their size and inside scoring against the warriors... Cousins will be playoff ready by the playoffs... If the warriors lose durant and cousins next year will be some really fun basketball... this year the warriors are gonna make the west their *****es. I like what the blazers are doing and they could beat anyone except the warriors.

Youíre coach is fantastic. Your stars are low IQ. Simmons has a brain but canít play outside the paint. Joel needs about another 2 years to grow into all his tools without dribbling into the corner for no reason or trying to take a guard off the dribble from 20 feet when he can just give it up run to the block and get it back. Jimmy will never not hold and survey. He is a ball stopper. Harris is nice but largely an iso guy too. The Sixers win on talent and effort. Brown does a nice job getting them to move rock and play together as well as they do

Did you see the energy all the Rockets played with last night? It was amazing. They were all so damn excited to be able to touch a basketball and dictate a play. Harden could learn a few things.

Warriors lost the game with the 15-0 start. You don't win a game starting like that. Also, nobody showed up but Curry and KD

The chemistry that CP3 and Harden had last year isnít there this year. Itís easy to blame this on Harden but the Rockets also weíre playing pretty great until CP3 came back. They just havenít played well together this year, and if the Rockets are going to be able to make any sort of a run, theyíre going to both have to play at a high level at the same time.

Houston has played well versus teams above .500. Theyíve had no consistency.

Itís like everything I think this team just ainít gonna cut it this year, they go out and beat one of the best teams in the NBA. Pretty frustrating.

One thing is clear though. They have mega confidence against the warriors. To beat them 3 times in the playoffs last year and three times this year is pretty impressive.

I would not say they were playing great without CP. They were playing Harden hero ball and it was keeping them above water against teams in the regular season, but it's not any sort of system that is sustainable for a playoff run when you're going against good teams that actually care, and ultimately just creates a terrible team dynamic imo.

Their falloff from last season has been massive, but now that CP and Clint are back, they can return to a version of that team if Harden gets out of his hero mode and allows it. Tough ask for a guy who is outwardly hunting points and the MVP trophy though.

They're 13-10 without Paul, and not playing any brand of basketball that can succeed when playing good teams that scheme/care. Last night was their best game of the year as a team.
