I think Shake was just off in tonight’s game. It happens to everyone. Then the frustrations generated partly by himself and partly because of the refs, got the best of him.

I also find Shake to be defended by bigger guys more often than before. I remember he played some SF with Hill and Maxey at the backcourt. And the length kind of bothered him. Whereas he usually can just rise up and shoot off a 2 man game when he’s playing 1 or 2.

This multiple guard line-up we’re running has made Maxey look good. Because he’s the only guy who can penetrate at will.

That pass Shake threw to Korkmaz's legs was inexcusable. He's struggling and clearly in his own head.

When the pressure is off him Shake can be an above average to good player. This is why coming off the bench is ideal of him. When you ask him to start when you ask him to play big as a starter Shake is not up to it. The pressure of the moment/game is too much for him and he gets shook. It's just where he is right now. A healthy team with shake being the 6th man is ideal for him and the 76ers this season.
