When Embid had 4 fouls and was benched, the horrible performances of Teague and the Williams just put our head under water, when we were supposed to profit of Embid absence. And bad choices Smart just closed the coffin with his bad defense, bad pass, bad attacking the paint. But this was just one match truth.
What is more reliable about this two matchs is that Philly is one of the 4 teams to fight for the Finals. Embid could very well be MVP. But their duo problems/complementary questions are not solved. They beat us twice at home (where they are 41-5 or something since last year and beat us twice last year). OK. But still our duo Tatum-Brown is a biggest key to succeed than their duo.
We don't have this problem; Brown was extatic, puting the great Philly and Simmons defense in his pockets. Easy. He has made a big step last year and huge one this year. Offensivelly he looks so many time so clean, such a natural scorer, not forcing, the game coming to him. He has developped so much tools. This should just stop the bad drafter danny post.
Now we litterally have two wings superstar, as they will be both recognized this year. And they are complementary by the way. Having a top 8 all star PG as a third option make our team a unique top 3 in the league. Still in progress (but they are coming quick). Building a better bench or finding a 4th option with TPE should be doable. But this year Danny must do it and find a way and find a good TPE guy and a trade of youth(s) VS vet.
