I'm not one of those guys who think that this is playoff Russ or that he will never play well against Philly. He is just out of his groove. If he finds it then we will look like a totally different team and can win even against Embiid. As good as he is, him and Ben are totally mentally weak. They will fold if you apply pressure and no one brings pre like Russ when he is on. The time is now Russ
It’s not a coincidence that Westbrook went from MVP-level to his current production - he’s being guarded by phenomenal defenders in Simmons and Green. They’re quick enough to cut off his lanes when he normally blows by his defender and they’re strong enough that he can’t just out-muscle them for bully-ball twos.
