I obviously hate how this game played out, but if Joel continues to play, I think we win this series 4-1. The second half should be indicative of how we adjust for the rest of this series. Still major problems with our team, but I don't think ATL is going to keep this heat.

Agree except I think Hawks eke out 1 more win.

4-2 Sixers is my prediction.

Switch on defense, bait Young into the lane and force him to take a floater over Embiid. If we're to play Danny Green, put him on Bogdanovic. The defensive assignment should be Ben, Tisse, and Maxey on Young all game and force him into the paint.

Maxey has no business on the floor in the playoffs either, much less defending Trae Young.

Maxey was matching his speed on some possessions while playing, including shutting him down completely on the last shot of the third quarter.

Also, nothing about last game suggests Maxey shouldn't play. I'd agree with you if we had better options, but we simply don't.

Green is fine on Young as long as they are playing the sort of scheme they were in the second half. If they want to drop Embiid like they did to start the game without hard doubles or traps coming from elsewhere you can't have anyone but Simmons and *maybe* Thybulle on him and even that is asking a lot.

This

I said it multiple times yesterday, but drop coverage is always gonna be an issue against teams who like to pick and roll to death. Specially if you have a lot of space between the perimeter and the paint.

Edit: This was also an issue for the Bucks against the Nets and i think is good that it happened now, because it allows to make adjustments early..... Supossing we fix this :lol:

They can't also switch unless they're fine with Embiid defending on the 3 point line.

They don't need to fully switch with Embiid he would just have to show hard until Green or whoever is covering Young can recover. He was doing it in the 4th quarter but it's hard to ask him to do all game especially with the knee.

I assume they were just hoping that they could get away with not making Embiid do that against this team, but they learned in the first half that is probably not going to fly.

The Hawks in game one and the series as a whole are very reminiscent of the 2001 Sixers team that went into LA and stole game one of the finals while having zero chance of winning them, but this team has issues nonetheless and they will show big time against the Nets.

Maxey should get minutes in the series, but he shouldn’t be asked to run the offense in an all-bench lineup (and he shouldn’t be guarding Trae). That’s asking too much of the rookie, and the beginning of the second quarter clearly suggested that.

I think Embiid will play in Game 2.

Why does it seem to me like Doc will finally be on the opposite side of 3-1 story?
I believe we are winning this in game 7, taking 3 games in a row.

Will Doc shorten his rotations in Game 2? Will we see a full bench lineup in Game 2?

Embiid/Howard
Harris/Simmons
Green/Thybulle
Curry/Hill
Simmons/Maxey (5-7 minutes)

Are the only players I trust

Getting Maxey heavily involved may be the only way they win this series.

Q: What did you see from the all-bench unit on the offensive end?

Rivers: "Nothing."


Good. Hopefully he learned his dam lesson. Trying to coach the playoffs like it's the regular Season. No bench player outside of Hill, Thybulle and Howard should be getting any more than 2 minutes on the court in these playoffs.
