GT: Nets vs. Sixers 7:00pm 12/31/21 

Post#1 » by MrDollarBills » Thu Dec 30, 2021 10:28 pm

Final game of 2021 and we've got everyone except the young boys back.

We got hit hard by Covid but we made it out in an even better position than we were in before. Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come.

This starting lineup is unbelievable. And we wonder why KD + Harden lineups are average. I understand experimenting but we already tried Claxton at 4 and it was a huge fail. Now we're big, slow, and light on shooting.

I'll be intrigued to see how they deploy Nic. My guess is he'll shadow one of their small guards, hopefully Curry. Durant usually does a good job guarding Tobias, and LaMarcus will have his hands full checking Joel. Still, they are a team that tends to start slow, and we've had some hot shooting 1st quarters recently.

I predict big win-one-for-the-Gipper energy from the Sixers, with Doc in protocols. We need to bury them early, limit turnovers to stifle their transition offense and weather their inevitable, furious comeback attempt. Let's go Brooklyn!!!

Harden, Mills, KD, and LMA can all hit threes.

Claxton has played solid so far on both ends. I'm not sure if I like going super big versus Philly with Thybulle, Maxey and Curry out there but so far it's working

Nash is going to have to stagger Clax and LMA. Blake was absolutely useless against Embiid and Drummond

Slow start plus Embiid can not miss.

Harden is playing dumb and hunting home run passes so far, not great

Can't breathe on Philly so far in this 3rd Q

Morey played himself yet again. Not only teams won't give fair value for Ben, Toby showing steady decline :lol:

No way Harden coming to play with mediocre roster and injury prone C. Hinkey rolling in his grave right now :lol:

Two straight bad possessions.

Nash needs to reel it in here. Get the ball moving

I'm ready for the inevitable 1/10 FG from Patty in the playoffs. Dude is so streaky. :lol:
