He's already going to get playoff minutes. That's what Ty Lue and staff are prepping him up now during the regular season

Joel would have went for 45 tonight LA has no answer for him


Joel would have won a ring that year if Kawhi didn't sink that shot in his face in game 7.


Yep

It’ll Lakers and Philly in the NBA finals this year

OK.. Ibaka and Pat Bev would've helped out for us tonight as well

Lolololo

Embiid 20 points tops in a game like this. That also means less shots for Tobias, Simmons, and Green

Doc gave Mann plenty of development minutes last year including the playoffs
and has his own T-Mann this year in Shake Milton

Keep laughing while Mann keeps out muscling your squad. You need to focus on the Nets from here on out.. not us.

LOL, you have no idea how awful Doc is in the playoffs. Just wait.

Just as a sneak preview: no series is ever over, even if you're up 3-1.

Clippers are my #1 but Sixers are still my hometown squeeze. I watch a lot of their games and Doc has made Embiid into a serious pro. No more scatterass. No more lazy 3-pointers, no more loafing down the floor. This is the adult Joel Embiid and he's still just 27.

https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/e/embiijo01.html


Even if we become a better team than last year with Rondo, were still playing catch-up with the rest of the league. Doc just won 9 out of 10 without his MVP because the Sixers have bought in where last year's Clippers didn't. I liked how we looked tonight but if last year's Clippers had played like Doc's Sixers did tonight [ball movement, pace, and defense are all near the top of the NBA] we wouldn't even be having this discussion.

Fortunately after humiliating themselves in last year's playoffs--and this means YOU Paul George--this year's Clippers are buying into Ty who is pretty much saying all the same things that Doc's Sixers are. It's not a genius secret formula. It's not the Apollo Project or even the NFL. :lol:


Tonight was a very scrappy game and I thought both teams gave it heck. No scapegoats. I'd love for us to beat the Evil Empire and for Philly to beat the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants that Durant is collecting in Brooklyn. Now THAT would be fun. :D

Well, the pick we traded [threw away] to get Fi became Saddiq Bey so the book on that isn't closed yet ;-)


FTR I was more excited about Mann whose mother is an NCAA women's basketball head coach :)
Fi couldn't even start for Florida St :roll:
