EC | Rd. 2| (1) Sixers vs (5) Hawks [1-1] 

Post#1 » by eyeatoma » Thu Jun 3, 2021 2:03 am

If Joel is available for all the games and he's 90% of the player he can be, then this series is over in 5 or 6 games. If he rests a game or two, or if he is severely limited this series goes to 7. This series has now become a tossup, and the Knicks didn't help at all, with the series now starting on Sunday, which doesn't give Embiid much time to rest.

A moderately more competitive series, but in the end the Sixers should take it. If no Embiid at all, this definitely get hard though. Hawks are a decent playoff team.

Mods please sticky, thanks!

How do you feel about Embiid? Think he'll play, be back about close to normal?

Sixers are stacked even without Glassbiid. Sixers could possibly win even with him out the entire series.

Sixers in 6. If Hawks can win at least 2 games I'd be happy

I think people are sleeping on Atlanta. Without Embiid I'm picking the Hawks in 6. With him, it's a toss up for me. The Hawks have more talent than people realize.

It'll be very interesting without Embiid for sure. My money is on Joel playing though, we'll see.

You do realize the Sixers as a starting lineup have not lost all season. Heck. They barely lost the year before at home. It’s crazy how good they are at home especially healthy.

Now if Embiid isn’t healthy. That’s a major problem. Cause Clint capela can be more active instead of being bullied to death by Embiid. It’s just a bad matchup for capela giving up so much weight.

With Embiid 90% series is over in 5. Without Embiid or with Embiid 50%. It will be a dog fight. 6 or 7 games either way for either team.

Never had expectations to begin with just stating the facts. :crazy:

No Embiid and it will likely be a 7 game series either way. With Embiid 5 or 6 games.

Embiid usually roasts him, but Capela is definitely a step of over most of the centers of the league. Capela's verticality can give Embiid problems. He gets a ton of oops off the pick and roll.

Considering Embiid injury, Sixers in 7.
And I have no idea if he’ll play even once this series.

I'm zagging here.

Simmons is a mental midget and Embiid won't be right. Hawks in 6.

If Embiid was good I would pick the Sixers just to clarify.

Hey man,

Thanks for putting the thread that I created back up. Can we get my old poll back? It was a basic prediction of who would win in how many games like the other thread. Sixers in 4,5,6,7 or Hawks in 4,5,6,7

Thanks!

Well it is fact. Players like Anthony Davis and Embiid are glass. Glass Davis doesn't quite roll off the tongue as well though. Barkley gave him a nice nickname though. I'll call him street clothes from now on.
