Okay let's do this. Hopefully we got over whatever the hell was going on in the 1st half.

Keys to the game:

No All Bench Lineup
Ben and Tisse need to guard Trae, if it's Danny they need to trap
Need to get Jo and Tobi going early
Play the same defense we did in the 2nd half and we should win.

Do these things and we should win

No all bench lineups is the key here. Can't do that nonsense against good teams. He didn't do it in the second half so maybe he learned. But we'll see.

This is the most important game for Simmons, Embiid and Sixers since that Kawhi’s buzzer in 2019 semis Game 7.

It’s been more then 2 years. Can’t wait so see how they respond.

I hate games like this. Losing is disastrous. Winning means you've still already lost home court advantage.

As others have said Doc please no bench lineups, play Trae face up with Thybulle. My man I know you like to play from behind and get blocks but doing that on Trae you most likely will get lit up quicksmart.

Harris has played really well so far, I don’t want to see a big dip in his 3 point %. Happily take 20ppg, 34% from 3 and a lot of rebounds, this is an ideal team to play to rack up the boards.

Okay ladies and gentlemen. We are winning this game. Jokic just won the MVP. Jo will be seeing red, and is going to go HAM against the Hawks.

I'm here, I'm full of fear, get use to it.

If we lose this one, the current timeline will break and by midnight Ricky and jem will be mods, and Dalembert will be starting at center for game 3
