Biggest game of the season

February 9, 2021 6:59 pm

Kings have been getting killed by big man (Jokic, Tristan Thompson recently), but won both those games. I expect a big game from Embiid, Holmes in foul trouble, Whiteside to have more minutes than average, but hopefully Fox and the boys can contain everyone else and pull out another W.

Philly is a very bad matchup for us.

OAN, CoJo should be sent to the locker room never to be seen again. The next time you see his face will be on a milk carton. Not because he’s missing, but because his game and defense are missing.

The Kings (unkown Rocky Balboa) came into the ring against the champ Apollo Creed (Sixers) and just punched them in the face.

Damn. FOX is on the precipice (hit your free throws and you are a superstar)

Haliburton is going to be our Pippen.

Oddly enough, Bagley did a pretty solid job defending Embiid down the stretch there in the 2nd. Really did a good job of preventing him from getting position in the post and denying the entry.

That’s gonna change in the 2nd half. Expect a heavy dose of hard nose PnR with Embiid. It was working for them in the 1st quarter but they oddly went away from it.

If you had told me that the Kings would be out rebounded, have twice as many fouls, and stoot 10 less FT’s at halftime, I would have told you the 76ers are winning in a blowout. Crazy.
