Game Day: Suns (41-16) @ 76ers (39-18), Wed 4/21/21

Post by Superbone »

Time: 4:00 pm AZ (4:00 pm PT/7:00 pm ET)
Place: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA
TV: BSAZ/NBATV

Another big test and another big big for Ayton to test himself against. Simmons and Harris are both currently listed as questionable for this one.

Go Suns!!!

Very excited for this matchup.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Yea just gonna speak bout our young Duo

Although Giannis is a handful we all know Embiid is a different level of physicality so let's see how DA does, thing is I be more worried about the refs calling soft ones when DA does try to battle. If they let them play he should do alright.
Last matchup Book was torching Danny, Seth, Thybulle got some of it too and when they tried Simmons in the 4th, Book got him too iirc so would like more of the same. His efficiency down recently but as always once his head is in the game and he not doing immature things it's all good.

Embiid, Simmons, Harris and Curry are all questionable. I think Harris is the only one that might sit out and the rest will play.

Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Historically, Booker has had his way with Philly.

Jaylen Brown has already been ruled out for tomorrows game against the Suns. So that could be another chance to rest someone.

No way they'll sit all three at once. Besides, that's a fine.

Probably won't do a minutes restriction either but it'd be interesting to see us try it. We're making a run at the #1 seed tho, they want to play and win.

Well we don’t look good so far. Embiid killing us...They’re getting the switch, we really gotta fight to not switch tonight.

3s going in now. If we just play them even during the Embiid minutes, we should be able to win the minutes with Embiid on the bench.

Not breaking any news here, but Embiid is so damn good.

Think I’d have Craig in there when Ayton isn’t against Embiid. Saric can’t do it himself and Craig provides a little more muscle and length than our other wings. I’ll echo FF, Embiid is really good.

Weird we took Book and Ayton out with only 2 fouls a piece.

Well tied up at the half. We didn’t play as well as I’d hope in those non Embiid minutes. Book and Ayton didn’t play much in the 1st

Defensively we need to take something away...Embiid having his way inside and Sixers are hitting their 3s. We need to slow one of those down.

Yea didn't think we played poorly, just a little choppy on offense. Gotta keep Embiid off the glass, he's got 10 rebounds while our team has 14. Good minutes from Craig and the Cams off the bench.
