I’m expecting him to be aggressive in game 3 along with the other starters to get their advantage back. I still see Sixers winning in 6.
I think it's that we have colossal mismatches that we are exploiting with Embiid and Harris, and they should continue to exploit those mismatches until the Hawks show some ability to stop them.
The starting lineup is a +31 in 46 minutes so far with a 139.4 ORTG.
Offense hasn't been an issue.
If Simmons and Thybulle can continue to give Trae issues and Embiid doesn't have any set backs, this shouldn't be too tough. Doc basically gave away game 1 with the Green and Trae matchup.
... and by playing the 9th, 10th and 11th men on the team enough minutes in the 1st and 2nd quaters, to all rack up double digit minuses in +/-.
