A few minutes ain't the worst, but what about 25-28 minutes of that combo at F?
Why would they play that much together? I don't think that really makes any sense. Harris will play like 33-35, Scott will play 28-30, one will be on the court at all times, that's 13-17 minutes together. When they're on the court they'll still be out there with some combination of good defenders. I think you've overblowing how bad the two of them are on that end also at least for regular season purposes, like we won regular season games starting JJ with Dario and playing both of them with Belinelli and TJ.
That being said I'm not like exactly expecting them to win at a 70 win pace with Embiid sitting.
Scott won't play 28-30 mpg. Last year was like a career high at 24 minutes per game (for the 76ers), and that's with the bench having only two playable non-Centers. Scott has been a 15-20 minute guy his whole career. He's fine for what he is: A 4.5 million dollar, 40% bench 3pt shooter. There's nothing wrong with him on this team.
Well yeah generally you're right but we were talking about specifically if they start Scott when Embiid sits.
