Nice first half from Joshua. Little more aggressive finding his shot. Still an exquisite passer and that hasn't changed. Been the king of taking foot-on-the-line 2s though.

I know its unpopular to be pro-Bazely and I get that he's a bit of a flow killer on offense but he's also maybe the only real transition/vertical threat on the squad. Think if he gets dealt they really need to get back or acquire in another deal some type of legitimate run and jump athlete in a forward spot.

I hope it's not inappropriate to say that after that late foul on Giddey's fast break, I hope Embiid tears both of his ACL's.

He grew up and played pro ball with a closer line. He'll adjust.

SGA had a good night but I'm still worried about the SGA/Giddey fit. They may figure it out but feel they both need the ball in their hands.

Not enough minutes for Poku, Mann and Maledon to some extent. I'm low on Mann but u should play him as much as possible right now...

i'm not worried at all about fit. giddey is already a far superior playmaker than shai. some of the passes he is making out of pnr, he looks like a young james harden. i think it's obvious that giddey is not going to have the isolation scoring prowess of shai or other high volume scorers, but i think he's going to be the primary ball handler eventually. shai as a secondary handler always seemed to be his destiny.

giddey just has to get his three point shot right.
