Ja dropping hints on twitter that JJJ will be back soon. JJJ was listed as out on the injury report, but maybe we will see him sometime this week.

Yesterday Embiid had 24 points while only making 6 shots. At minimum that means at the very least, 6 FT's..

Hopefully this won't be a lopsided game.

Melton closing the half, nice, nice. Memphis 52-42.

When Dillon plays smart, he's good. 13/3/2 on 5-7 shooting. Love to see it. Started out sharing the ball, which made his offense less predictable. no forcing.

Allen & his 2 of 4 made 3's were apart of that big 3rd quarter rum, got to give him credit for being apart of that.

Having said that,

Note, he was 5-14 from the field, 4 of 13 from 3 & while I get much like Dillon's inefficient aggression, he posses a threat for spacing... What makes him a better option than Melton in that role though?

Melton had 4 made 3's also but on 6 attempts, not hard to imagine he could have done better, with 7 more attempts.

I'm trying hard to understand why Allen is believed the better option to start. Is it because Memphis think Melton is better as the 6th man giving the bench some pop in a Manu type role ?

Putting aside that the Sixers looked really tired, it was an impressive game. Finally, all lines are fairly settled: Ja-Allen-Brooks-Kyle-JV vs Tyus-Melton-Bane-Clarke-Tillman. Also, Ja played for the team - it always drastically improves his teammates` performance. I hope he has noticed that, too.

Aggressive Ja is the best Ja. Doesn't always lead to him scoring, but when it doesn't it leads to him setting everyone else up. What a fun game.

Speaking of the keys to winning, I would put his playmaking leadership well in front of his aggressiveness.
