The Sixers defense is for real, that's the main reason our offense looked like crap today. They just deflect every pass and they play physical D. And yes Embiid got 20 fts but he gets double-digits there often anyway. His style is just gonna tranlsate better in the playoffs, and he's got great shooters around him already in Curry, Green, Milton, and Thybulle to some extent. If you're not scared of them beating our asses when it gets to the postseason, you're being delusional.
Heard this same exact arguement last year when they beat us 3-1 in the season series in similar fashion.
I mean if we don't sort our **** out we won't even have a chance to get that far. But if we do, I assume we will be at a better place team wise. If this team doesn't have the extra gear effort wise that I believe they do when healthy, then we won't make it past the play in game.
Dude, they didn't have Simmons in the playoffs, and they were an up-and-down team last year. Remember that? People really shouldn't be bragging about that playoff win, even though we also lost Hayward. That Sixers team was fool's gold all of last year, whom we just matched up badly to.
They are absolutely dominant this year compared to last season, so yes I think I'm warranted in my worry with them. They are going to smash us in the playoffs even if we play our best because Tatum and Brown just can't carry this team against great teams.
People have been talking about the Sixers as a force ever since they have had Embiid and Simmons. To date, they have never got it right. I believe that this is mainly because they had a coach who simply did not know how to use his superstars properly. With that being said, Ben Simmons game is greatly flawed in that he is mainly a transition point guard. In the half-court game he is pretty much useless unless he is posting up. The most basic reason for this is that he gets PTSD when even thinking about shooting. As a result, the Sixers spacing gets all messed up, people can help off of him and everything collapses because the Sixers run their offence through him.
