Both of those former Sixer guards on the Clippers sure would look nice on the Sixers right now.

If the clippers dont have the size to defend AD than what will they do with Embiid. Swarm him ? We still need a sharp/zonebuster

They'll probably end up with someone like Gasol or Adams or someone.

Maybe a 3 way. Or maybe he wants to be the main man to get his supermax.

Horford shuts down AD. Ben shuts down LBJ. I think we’ll match-up well with the Lakers.

Clips? Chicken BBQ for Embiid

Zubac with 8 points in 9 minutes. Dude produces points when he's on the floor.

I dont see how Lakers have better spacing than us. AD is below average shooter, then they always have a non shooter with McGee or D12 on the floor.

So against the Clips, let Embiid do the damage. Against the Lakers, let the wings do the damage.

Their frontcourt spacing is horrendous. They'll be relying on Kuzma jacking up 6 shots a game and probably only shooting 31-34% from three.

Dudley, Daniels, Cook all playing big minutes for the Lakers. All BBQ chicken, defensively.

The Lakers continue to mis-use Pope, defensively. He's a crappy team defender. Stop playing him on the wing, defensively, at SG and SF. Play him at the point of attack. He should be guarding PGs whenever Avery Bradley isn't. Don't play them together.

I get the regular season love, but I don't get the postseason love.

How many real players do the Rockets really have?

Harden
Westbrook
Gordon
Capela
Tucker

That's a pretty shallow, flawed team.

Davis/James have combined for 2 points in the 4th quarter so far.

The Lakers don't have a closer, either.

Just as flawed as the Sixers and Bucks for that very reason.
