I thought the Sixers were running away with it, but Brown running with Neto when Trey Burkle was killing it and Embiid continuously playing stupid basketball let them back in it. If Neto and Embiid were benched with Horfard playing centre and Richardson playing point Sixers would have had an easy night.
Full credit to Murray, he played a great game, he was the best player on the court today. Swap him for Simmons and the Sixers win the title.
Jokic was poor, he was the main reason the Sixers had a big lead, he is really bad defensively, repeatedly got blown away by the Sixers players. His only savior was Embiid being the idiot that he is trying to show he is the best center, kept trying to put a massive dunk on, and the triple team stripped the ball, but to Jokic's credit he hung in there and made a crucial three and sold the flop on the last play to seal it. Sixers won't go anywhere with Brett Brown as Coach, and Nuggets won't go anywhere with a center that can't defend.
You are so far removed from reality that it's not even funny anymore, man.
It would be good if you actually provided a reason rather than just a statement.
Did you watch the game or just check Box scores? Considering it was on at the same time as the Dallas game, and you are a Dallas supporter, did you really watch the Nuggets Sixers game instead of the Dallas New York game? It seems really unlikely, so how are you able to dispute my observations? Or are you just running with the sheep, and posting low IG takes?
If you did watch it, which parts of my analyses do you agree with?
If you did not watch it, do you think you are qualified to comment on my analysis of the game, or are you just a box score watcher? Did you even watch the Dallas game? Maybe watch some games, you might enjoy it.
I'm in Europe, I rarely watch games live, I usually watch them in the morning. Yeah, I watched it. The problem is that you think center defense is all about rim protection. Jokic is a bad rim protector, but he is not a bad defender. He just isn't, and virtually all advanced stats point to that. Is he great, or even as good as those advanced stats would make you believe? Probably not, but he is still above average overall. There is a lot that goes into defense, you can be bad at certain aspects and still come out as average or even above average overall, and Jokic is the best example of this.
