    Does Embiid actually try today or does he play with no heart like he’s been doing in the bubble.

    Just some FD thoughts: It has been impossible for me to build anything but a Lowry/Murray/Mitchell lineup. I feel like those 3 are essentially plug and play (and at PG there are no other options). I am currently on Embiid>Jokic, by 1:45EST I’ll know if that was a good idea.

    I believe td. Genuinely expect motivated Embiid with a 30-10-4 and 4 stocks.

    No problem finding value. There’s too much. My problem is i don’t like the spend up options

    Do any of you have access to your FD accounts? Mine has been locked out for “maintenance” all morning.

    Same, it’s ridiculous.

    What do you guys like on Boston? Thoughts on Tatum, Brown?

  • Dfspacman

    What’s the double OT game today?

  • vick325

    Embid, siakim, millsap or joker, Tobias, Royce?

    Weird. I think it may be a regional thing.

    Fading Boston with every on healthy don’t see any reason to play them

    and I am fading probably all of the sixers
    for all of the talk that simmons and embid cant play together they are much worse without Ben
    I am full fading Embid-I think he will get hurt again and leave early again too

    he has no heart
    ben has some flaws in his game but he is the glue that holds that team together
    losing Jimmy B was huge too
    Harris is a nice player but nothing to get too excited about

    Like three slates ago Tatum, Brown and Hayward broke the slate at no ownership. Kemba is not right and he will be in J Rich jail. Tatum has license to shoot whenever he wants and Tobias Harris or AL Horford will be defending him?

    We think Beverly plays or not?

    Yes, he’ll play hard today. If they go down 2-0, maybe not but in game 1 most certainly he’ll be going hard.

    The Sixers should feed him the ball, but I think the issue is how on earth they will get stops. I fully expect Kemba to push 30 real PPG in this series and it wouldn’t shock me to see Jaylen Brown and Thiess to go ham as well.

    Thougts on porter jr hitting over 40 fptS?

    Yes under priced on fan duel should play 34-38 min

    No one can tell who will go ham on the Celtics that’s the problem

    I’m thinking about Theiss, but generally agree.

    Kemba is going for near 40 tonight and JRich hasn’t had one moment all year that made me say “wow, he is a real stopper”.

    Without Simmons their perimeter defense is screwed. Kemba is the exact type of player who goes bonkers vs the 76ers.

    Source – watching 60+ Sixers games this year.

    I know. But I can tell you the type of player who will go ham on the 76ers.

    It’s Kemba.

    Theiss will have wide open corner 3s all series which is why he’ll have a good series but mostly it’s because Kemba will be slalom skiing into the paint regularly.

    IMHO, playoff basketball is typically not the same as regular season. We’re likely to see depressed FP across the board with a few exceptions of exploitable matchups in the first round. That said, if the refs call the playoffs like they’ve called the rest of the bubble games, guys who put up volume and aren’t afraid to drive in are going to go to the line a bunch. Luka for example had 5 of 8 games with 9+ FTA, his highest a Harden-esque 19.

    The Rotations are tighter Guys play like 38-40 min scores will be generally higher
