Our offense is too reliant on shooting and that makes us reliant on rhythm and it's tough to establish rhythm when you are getting pushed around by Embiid/Dwight/Simmons. Timelord has been a needed revelation, but he doesn't gives us the physical presence (nor the savvy presence) necessary to match up here.
Lose Fournier & TT & find out the whole team has prob been exposed to Covid, and we can't complain about a 10 point loss.
15 points before garbage time.
For once I'm a little concerned about Nesmith not playing. Why wasn't he slotted in as a Fournier replacement? He can do everything Fournier does except pass, and the alternatives don't pass either. He does them with rookie unreliability, of course, and there's no assurance that even as a vet he'll equal Fournier. But he's basically the same kind of player.
What bothered me more was why Pritchard did not see more game time. The guy can shoot, has a high basketball IQ and is willing to move the ball around. Surely he is worth more than six minutes a game?
What I also find funny is that people are complaining about not having Fournier. A week ago after he shot 0 from 10 people were calling him hopeless, overrated, shouldn't be given any game time etc.
