    If GS can finish off HOU without any further injuries, I like their chances to win another title over either MIL or TOR.

    The oddsmakers certainly like your chances.

    Embiid shooting roughly 35% this series

    17, 7, and 3 stats

    Mike scott is funny

    Boston just quit last night.

    You’d expect a team with that talent and coaching staff to have some pride and at least give effort out there.

    They 100% laid down and died, they were not interested in prolonging the series.

    These guys were not too happy: https://twitter.com/BigT44DFS https://twitter.com/TheSeigeDFS

    Yeah, they quit on a few possessions late in the fourth quarter, but they were never really in the game midway through the second quarter.

    Embiid having a kyrie series here

    he picked it up, need this to get closer so he at least gets 40.

  • tmarohl

    Everybody now just thinks Kyrie blows, and that is why Boston lost the series. I mean it’s not like the Bucks didn’t have anything to do with Kyrie sucking! That kind of attitude, lack of respect, is what will continue to motivate the Bucks, and why everyone will continue to underestimate how good they are.

    Embiid starting to add some FPs, gonna depend on how much he plays 4Q—-might be true of all the 76ers. TOR needs to get it within 15.

  • sox9

    Reddick gonna be my dropped score, unless he puts up a few 3s and adds a REB or ASST

  • ASitar

    WTF is Siakam doing?

  • yisman

    hey Siakim, pass the ball

  • yisman

    Bucks get a full week off in between the previous series and the ECF

  • sox9

    Embiid may be done for the night.

  • sox9

    really surprised Embiid back in having played 33 minutes already and the game in hand.

  • sox9

    5 minutes left. PHL up by over 20 and keeping starters in? Guess they didn’t see what happened to Durant last night. Stupid.

    Durant wasn’t in a blowout and I think they just want to keep the starters in for another 2-3 minutes to make sure its really over.

    Probably want Embiid to play more minutes to improve the cardio and burn off a couple cheese burgers.

  • sox9

    Remember a few years ago GB Packers would sit starters the entire 4Q when the game was in hand. NE PATs will run Brady until the last play, and he will pass for a TD on that play even if they are up by 4TDS. Guess each team is different. Kinda hope TOR takes them out at home, so I don’t have to make an more Embiid decisions.

    GB never worried about that w/Eddie lacy

  • sox9

    They need to pull Embiid. I have him in half my LUs, but the smart move would be to pull him now

  • Ap1216

    Annoying siakam didnt get run these last 6 minutes

  • tmarohl

    You don’t pull your starters until the losing team pulls theirs. Leonard is still out there, so no reason for Brett Brown to pull his guys yet.

    so Embiid is 100% I suppose and doesn’t need a little extra rest?

  • sox9

    Last 5 minutes could be all foul shots

  • yisman

    So Monroe 0 minutes, Boban 5, Embiid 35

    big surprise

    FVV played 12 minutes and didn’t even attempt a shot. Toronto’s bench continues to be a dumpster fire this series.

    yeah, Doris point that out about 10-15 minutes ago 9 total points from the TOR bench, all Ibaka. Currently, still 9 points from the bench. Lack of depth is why TOR cannot win it all.
