yup.

i've had mixed feelings in the sense if the hawks do well the rest of the way, it kind of makes the knicks look better.

with that said it's hard not to root for them to get smashed. their team is so unlikable especially trae.

I don't trust this Philly team going into Atlanta and winning 2. Hawks took one there already and if they play them the way they played us when they went home, it's going to be a wrap.

Sometimes you take out your best player and there won’t be a game when he’s back. Not that you can avoid that always.

I think the Sixers have figured out how to guard Trae, they blew up the lob a few times today. Also there's just nothing Capela can do with Embiid, if there's any foul trouble for him they are incredibly small and their defense takes a massive step back cause they need to help if Collins or Gallo are on him. They got away with playing Gallo at center against us, you can't do that against Philly.

Even in this loss you can see how explosive their offense is. Really no shame in us not being able to keep up offensively considering that's our weakness. Hawks are not quite elite but they're very good.

I don't think they did at all. Trae had Simmons on skates then got him reaching to the point where he was just running circles around him. They had help defense and traps swarming at him leaving guys open all over the place. Atlanta got a whole bunch of wide open looks that they missed, kinda similar to the one game they lost to us at MSG and also similar how Shake Milton had to be the unsung hero like Burks for us off the bench. Even with Embiid looking dominant, Harris getting off to a hot start, Atlanta still fought back and looked to take control before Shakesanity took over. Atlanta looked like they were on empty after unloading their clip in game 1. Game 3 they get to go back home and reload.
