looks like I missed a monster 4th quarter, guess the silver lining is if it ever gets to the deep bench, we'll destroy them
just another game in many ways, but beyond the bad shooting and all that, there is a clear reminder that this playoff will be nothing like last year. When nobody has it, there's no cavalry coming, which we knew, but it's still ugly when we see it in action.
When the 3pt shot is not falling, our offense goes to shit. Siakam is at least a year away, and our short point guards better make their 3s, cause they'll get nothing in the paint. Also, Gasol better start making some 3s, or else he'll be all by himself all game long on offense.
Boston clearly wanted this game more than us, but it's not like we mailed it in - we didn't get beat for lack of effort, we just got beat. Given how the season series played out, I'm definitely going to change my mind here and consider Boston the slight favourite in a direct series. Still, essentially, a 50-50 bet, but they have a slight edge.
Maybe philly knocks them out, since they have no answer for embiid, but without simmons I don't see it.
