 Embiid is just a near impossible cover 1v1 with his back to the basket. Need to send help, cant wait on him to abuse JV/Poetle/Nog or whoever.


  Denial is big vs him but so is a plan for dealing with him when he gets it. we didnt really have an answer all game.

Tough to win when you get bad shooting from all the vets outside of Jonas, and his jumper was terrible as well. The defense looked bad in the first half, but so much of that was transition off bad misses. Yes they need to be ready to defend in transition, but hitting some shots could do wonders as well.

So maybe they need to tweak a bit? Maybe put CJ in the starting lineup? He played with good energy when he started last week. Gotta get him going. And OG could maybe use a bit of a changeup. I don't think it has to happen, but it might help to keep things rolling.

I really like Siakam's game right now. And Delon and Poeltl are showing really good signs.

I liked Kyle's fight, but then not really so much for a guy playing with a dent in his ass. That kind of game where they just collected a few more bumps and bruises. That time of year. Another problem hitting some shots can solve.

They forced 7 turnovers from him, and he made some really tough shots. I think there was an answer for him. He was just plenty good enough regardless. His three and his assists were as much of a backbreaker as anything.

 He is what can make them a very dangerous team. When he plays like that and forces you to double, he is a good play maker, shot maker, rebounder.

 He really has best big in the league potential. He is that nice.

Definitely. I just think they could have overcome that easily enough. Too many Raptors played to the level of the reffing crew's competence.

I'd pay good money to see that.
