Also Luwawu Cabarrot is truly awful.

I remember a poster on here saying that he was the equivalent to Jaylen Brown for a much lower pick. My goodness. Some sixer fan quotes for reference.

Quote

Bayliss plays like dog ****. Wish we traded him instead of sauce. He is horrible. Him and TLC can p--- off.

Furkan done more then Bayless and TLC from 1 shot.

I just hope this is the game Brown finally realises Holmes > Amir and Furkan > TLC+Bayless. Go home Bayless you're drunk.

Bayless and TLC. Just lol.

I love how there's no crowd so you can just hear Brett yelling constantly at TLC.

Can't be any worse then TLC. He is terrible. Can't hit open 3's, can't defend and turns it over.
 


I bet I know which poster.

He would still probably defend the position as well.

The difference in this game is really butler. The young guys on both teams are making mistakes but butler has taken over

Edit this game actually became really ugly in the 4th. This is the worst I have seen Simmons look. I think the 76ers young players may be trying to do too much for the national TV game. Lots of attempts at home run passes

And just like that they came together with some good plays. Back to a good game

TP for the heads up. 

Couple rando observations.

Wiggins body language screams demoted.  Wouldn’t surprise me if he pulls a Kyrie this offseason to get his superstar status back on track.

Thibs team plays some bad d.  What is this zone crap they run?  What ever happened to straight man on man?   

Or maybe their D is bad because they never take out their starters. 

Wolves really should be a lot better with all that talent.

Well the wolves Are in 4th place behind the Spurs, warriors and rockets. How much better do you think they should be?

I'd at least think they should be better, record wise, than the Pacers

With Thibs coaching, they ought to be at least middle of the pack defensively.

I think their biggest problem is definitely the minutes played by their starters. There was a good article on the Ringer about it. I do think they will maybe get a bit better over the course of the season as they are still fitting together a lot of new rotation pieces (Teague, Gibson, Buter, Crawford)

The bulls best two man combo is Mirotic and Portis for a net +33 over 44 minutes.

Cleveland has had the softest schedule in the league thus far, which seems to validate many of our feelings that Cleveland’s recent run was a bit of a mirage.

However, all that is about to change. They’re about ready to start a stretch until March where they’ll play mostly playoff teams/contenders and the elite teams of the league (GS x2, BOS x 2, HOU, SAS). They’ve got a pretty tough schedule until about the second week of March, and I see us putting some more separation in the standings during that time.

Should be some interesting takes if IT comes back and the team starts to really struggle.

I think IT will be a bit rusty for a while, but the real reason for the struggles will be that Lebron knows he needs to chill at some point and the schedule will be way more difficult than its been.

If Boston can avoid any huge skids, I think we should finish with a better regular season record than Cleveland. They have a tough schedule and an old team.

Im actually kind of intrigued with Toronto.
