Last time we met Embiid went for 33/17 and +18. I’d like to see that not happen again.

Same here. Let's see him go for 13/7 with a -18.

Long shot here. Anyone know where to watch this game in Melbourne? As close to East Melboure as possible.

You can still make it to Phoenix if you start digging now.

well Jimmy isn't playing so his usage rate will probably be high , we do need to defend well and look to frustrate him

I think Embiid is also questionable with knee soreness. Wonder if he'd pass up on playing Ayton again.

I don’t understand how Embiid really feels about Ayton. Is it just ribbing, or actual scorn?

I get the feeling he likes the kid. He gave him some nice compliments after the last game. Drummond on the other hand he goes at with no mercy.

I do wish Ayton had some of Embiid's desire to destroy his opponents. Annie was saying Ayton is too nice of a guy off the court to be that guy on the court. I don't see why you can't be a nice guy but still want to take it to your opponents.

I’d rather not watch on an iPhone screen and the internet speed here is pretty average.

I was just going to post that a key tonight is Ayton not picking up early fouls. Ugh.

Ya Embiid has no issue with Ayton. It’s all ribbing right now. Not so with Drummond and Whiteside. Embiid doesn’t like those guys

Yeah - we're not gonna win if we let them shoot 77%. Our run of first quarter duds continues.
