    I was gonna say, may need to push the pace a bit in game 2, just to see. Because it helped down the stretch.

    I think we'll see the 2-team pace we've done at times. Off the board we get it to Simmons fast and he goes, usually with Curry and Green racing with him. And if it's there, take it. And if it doesn't then hit Embiid on the trailing and he sets the tone with either a shot or reset.

    Ben Simmons, whether he expects the defensive assignments to change for Game 2, where he would defend Trae Young more: "I probably would do that. I mean, I want to. If the refs aren't gonna call so many fouls and I can be physical and be 6'10", then I'll be 6'10". But we'll see."
    Watching it Simmons seemed really pissed he was basically called for fouls for being taller.

    Simmons wasn't beating players to the spot. He was reaching and blocking with his body. They let him get away with more of it down the stretch, but he could have easily fouled out.

    I don't expect the refs to allow that all game.

    I actually expect the 2 minute report to show more fouls should have been called.

    What absolute disaster dealing with the press in the final 3 mins. Is that just a total choke or something you can go back to? It does take the ball out of Youngís hands

    It's both. I think McMillan was waiting for Doc to pack it in and put in bench, and when he didn't, Nate's players weren't ready for the pressure, and with no timeouts late he couldn't talk them through it. I think we'll see it at times but not as a full time thing. I'm willing to bet we see Simmons and Thybulle ride him full court though at times. Those to create at least 3-4 4 point swings a game by doing that.

    The 76ers defense looks lost at times. I credit Atlanta for their scheme. The Hawks deserve the victory.

    Doc needs to make adjustments for Game 2 and Hopefully the 76ers will be better.

    He said "Simmons was 3-10, if he makes 7-10 they tie the game and it's in OT"

    And I said "If the starters acted like they cared at the start, Danny Green took a shot in the first half, and the bench scored more than 23 points we would have won."

    Apparently he didn't like being told other guys on the team played like **** too.

    Silly that he blocked you but Ben is at the beginning of a 5 year deal starting at 30 million. He is going to feel more Heat then Danny Green. Iím honestly surprised Ben hasnít taken more Heat. With Bron out and facing a tougher opponent I could see this story getting big if Simmons doesnít get better.

    He's taking plenty of heat in the Philly area. The stupid thing to me is that the people who in the media bring the heat on him for it also ignore that despite the shooting inability he still contributed the second most points created to Embiid and played at a DPOY level. And I think that's what got Doc heated, was having to continually answer those shooting questions and no one talks about the good in his game.

    Marcus Hayes is definitely the thinnest skinned Philly reporter. He blocked so many people last year when he suggested that the Sixers just cut their losses with Embiid and get what you can (IIRC he suggested Embiid for Adams straight up) because "Embiid is just ok" after the loss to Boston in the bubble.
