We're gonna get absolutely **** if they cancel the remainder of the season. Easiest part of our schedule remains after a brutal start.

Sixers bound to lose games on the road anyways.
Honestly. I wouldn’t mind a one month break. Just play the playoffs as 6th seed. Maybe Ben is healthy by than. Maybe not. Who knows.

But I’d take my chances with healthy roster vs any team in the league on the road. We just haven’t played as a health road team with our core 5 players much.

Honestly, a healthy Ben is probably better than any seed improvements.

We were going to get both if the season finished as normal. Oh well, its the end of the world so I guess its ok.

They can't just go to playoffs. I think that's something that the owners would need to agree to, and I doubt they would agree to that.

As of now, we would get the OKC pick. This would be a nice consolidation price if in fact the rest of the regular season is scratched.

Lovely game. First time our two bigs had 20+ pt in the same game.

One thing I noticed is how great that top of the key pick and roll game works between Shake and Joel. Shake is money from there.

Well, so long fellas, see you God knows when.

I noticed Embiid using the verticality rule a lot during the game(spending more time with roy hibbert?) He also seemed to move the ball well and not let it stick too much.

Either way all of our Bigs are kind of plodding. No quickness between the 3 and players are able to use their quickness to get to the rack at will. 50 points in the paint. We are also overrated defensively on the peremeter especially without Ben.

Its obvious Alec Burks brings a ideal skill set off the bench. He is versatile enough to play with either lineup, he can handle, shoot if from anywhere and draw fouls like no other guard on this team can. Grob can kick rocks, hasnt shown anything worthwhile for this team.

Al playing like it’s gonna be the last game of the season.

Now he can rest in peace while waiting for the next game

I think I shed a tear last night watching Shake and Embiid executing the pick and roll. Beautiful to see.
