Playoffs: Second Round Game 3 : (1) Philadelphia 76ers @ (5) Atlanta Hawks l Friday 6/11 l 7:30pm l ESPN

Game 3 guys, time to take this series by scruff of the neck and go for the jugular.

Hawks are tough at home especially after Nate McMillan took control. Need to start strong with crisp execution. Just like last time get Jo and Tobi going early. Would be nice to see Ben make Trae work hard on defense to help tire him out. Stick with the same gameplan defensively on Trae that we used for Game 2. That seemed to work well.

it would be nice if we didn't need a miracle stretch from Shake for our bench to produce. Hopefully Shake has turned a corner, but we really need Hill, Kork, and Maxey to fire. If we can get anything out of our bench we should be in good shape, as our staters have performed well.

Loved the adjustments from Doc in game 2. The defense on Trae was elite and even though our bench was still ass aside from Shake, I didn't see any all bench lineups. Hopefully Shake gets rewarded with more of Kork/Maxey's minutes this game.

Shake has the 7th man spot back. Other than that, let's hope Glenn keeps up the staggering. Would really like to see it down to 9 guys playing tonight unless they can blow the Hawks out. They really should win at least one of the two games in ATL.

Lol if they don't win "atleast" 1 of the 2 games, we are in big trouble haha. going down 3-1 would be a death sentence.

9 guys tops, especially on the road.

Starting 5
Thybulle
Shake
Howard
Hill
Maxey

I'd go 10 not 9. Still wanna see Maxey mins and give him as many chances in this series to see if we can continue to use him going forward

I wouldn't count 3 minutes per half to Korkmaz to see if he's got it as a "guy".

I can live with a couple of Korkmaz minutes if they need some quick 3's. But even then, wouldn't we rather just see Curry or Hill take those shots?

If you've been listening to the NBA media at all, we already know Jo is going to be snubbed to the 2nd team.

3 minutes in a playoff game is an eternity. The 76ers lost game 7 in Toronto in 2 minutes.

I have and it pisses me off to no end. Only silver lining is he plays with a chip on his shoulder and we win the chip.

This one has all the marks of being a nerve racking one
