Yeah, lol, Shake Milton doesn't really strike fear
Not to mention their wacky backcourt.
I think being scared of Philly while they still have that bumbling fool as Head Coach is a waste of energy.
The Pacers are definitely a feel-good team, but last night's win over the Sixers is pretty terrible for us in terms of playoff match-ups. Maybe I'm crazy, but I would much much much rather play the Pacers in the 1st round than the Sixers.
Pacers without Sabonis yes. They're incredibly weak on the boards now. Together with the Rockets one of the few teams against which the Celtics have a clear advantage there.
I fear the 76ers because of Joel Embiid. Don't care about Simmons, Richardson, Harris or Horford and I certainly don't think Brett Brown is a great coach, but Embiid is literally and figuratively a big problem.
Yeah, I rather the Pacers than the 76ers. Or maybe hope Miami can go on a massive losing streak so we draw them in the first-round. Regardless, if you're not the 1 or 2 seed in the East you will have a tough time in the postseason.
Bring on the 6ers and that weak bench! This is a 4 man team and even if all 4 are clicking like last night they still need someone else to step up. Embiid can have a monster night and still not a lock to win a game. Celtics would run the 6ers out of the gym 4-1.
Simmons won't have bad nights for 4 out of 5 games. Tobias Harris and Al Horford might also decide to show up and play lol. The 76ers have already taken the season series against the C's 3-1 this year.
Ikr, it also means that Kanter can play heavy minutes to neutralise Embiid without fear of getting exploited in space.
