Giannis has taken a dump on Philly outside of that Christmas game he was injured for. On paper Ben/Horford/Embiid seems great but in reality hes destroyed them
Bam Adebayo is like the only player in the conference who can at least guard him effectively. Maybe Marc but thats with alot more help
Simmons had what would have likely been a season ending injury like 2 minutes into the 3rd Bucks game.
Sixers also beat them last year in Milwaukee and then lost a close game without Butler in Philly.
Like I said it's not about stopping Giannis it's about being able to stay at home against their other guys.
The Sixers would certainly need to be a lot more consistent than they were during the year to have a shot though.
