It's almost like you're a blind homer?


Embiid out here getting full Draymond treatment offensively. Nobody guarding him within 15 feet of the 3pt line, and to Embiid's credit he is passing most of the shots up. But that's the wrong strategy by the Bucks IMO. They should have someone fire in within at least 5 feet to make him think. Can't make it a FULL practice shot every time for him.

its almost like i understand defense and what embiid does and you hate anyone that can take the crown in your mind from curry.. see harden as an example and lebron for years and now Durant as well because he was taking credit from curry... Embiid should be at the line on about 7 of his 15 shots... on top of that he is getting dimes left and right and rebounds... look at how we play without him as an example the last 2 games against tanking teams where we gave up 99 through 3 quarters.

His rebounding and paint protection was important as usual. The rest of the team going nuts from 3 netted them the 2 point lead at the half. Giannis has **** on him/them, but Milwaukee's bench lost them the lead. Round 2 coming up.

Are your sports outlets Philly CSN, Philly twitter and the Philly PSD forum? Because it was not laughable to any objective outlet. Giannis has been hammered all game and they've played apathetic D on Embiid. Literally giving him 15 feet of space/ignoring him unless he's in the paint. Did they miss a call? I don't know, I missed it if they did. What I do know is that you're crying like a ***** while Giannis looks like BY-FAR the best player on the court.

Be happy. Bledsoe got ejected 3 minutes in and your guys' godly 3pt shooting in the first half has them with the 2 pt lead. You should win this. Stop making excuses for Embiid's incompetence. 5-16 bud. That's not on the refs.

Pretty funny watching Giannis and Embiid both just get goated into shooting 3pt shots, and they're both too dumb to pass them up. Embiid has a better stroke at least. I do maintain he warrants only a 5-8 foot cushion. Especially being that Giannis is so much more dangerous with the ball in his hands and in the paint as both a passer and finisher, I'd give him all the space every time.

Concerning the 3's, think about this. If they both can't hit above a >33% clip (50% eFG%), along with a 0% chance at a foul (as the players are 10+ feet away), why take the shot even to "keep the defense honest". I mean, they're clearly not going to guard you either way, so who are you keeping honest? And it's far, FAR lower as a point per shot than all of their other looks (and those include chances at the line... which both shoot well). Just dumb for either to take 3's unless they can get into the 36%+ range (and neither are close to 33%).

no trolling but this is why ben simmons hurts embiid so much... embiid takes 3s because he has to play outside so ben can play closer... there isnt enough space for both so joel has to over compensate for ben which is something advanced stats dont show... as soon as ben gets a shot embiid will shoot from deep less and ball handle less. because he will be in the paint much more

I mean I agree, I've said the same. But that's why JJ, Tobias and Butler were so clutch for them. All can hit. But when all are on the court, Embiid needs to simply stop taking 3's unless he is completely in motion/feeling it. Giannis should literally never take a 3 until he cleans it up. They're a legit contender and those shots hurt their team.

And now the SMASH from Giannis for his 5th block (most of them on Embiid) in Philly's attempt to tie.

I 100% agree, Ben is useless as when it comes down to end of games. Unfortunately this game shows our main problems we had before Jimmy and it still is there when he's out. Closing is a major problem, your best player can't be a post player at the end of the game.
