I think the Sixers are like the Bucks (star player is impossible to contain on drives, but can't shoot outside) with a few differences:

1) Sixers have some shooters, Bucks only have Middleton
2) Simmons is a better distributor than Giannis, combine that with the shooters and they are more trouble on offense
3) They have a fantastic Center
4) But, they don't have the defensive length that the Bucks have, so probably won't force as many fast breaks as the Bucks.

So, yes, I think (<nojinx>in the unlikely event we get there  ;) </nojinx>) we'd see Horford on Simmons and Baynes on Embiid.  The rest will have to stay home and smother Redick, Covington and Saric. 

C's should probably have more offensive cohesion, better ball movement vs. the Sixers due to less length.
I disagree on the last account.
They start a legit 7' footer next to 2 6'10'' guys, then they follow it up with a 6'8'' long-limbed wing. Their smallest guy is 6'4'' JJ, who usually hides on the most passive attacker.
During this, or any era, it doesn't get any longer than that.
Also, per basketball reference, Bucks were 19th in defensive rating while Philly was 4th.
And Joel might win the DPOY award, "in the process".

Plus the Bucks' defense is broken as hell. They aren't forcing anything anywhere anytime soon.

1) True
2) True
3) Injury Prone and make bad decisions but definitely talented.
4) Their D is very porous.
5) They don't have secondary scorer like Middleton

I think we can win but it is going to take a solid effort.   But isn't what the team has done the whole season?   Few expected us to do well without Hayward.

The Sixers were the 4th best defensive team in the league this year.  They have tremendous length with a starting 5 that contains a 7 footer, 2 6'10" players, a 6'9" player, and a 6'4" player.  TJ McConnell is their shortest rotation player and he is 6'2" and the rest of their playoff rotation comprises players that are 6'5", 6'9", and 6'10".  Even the deeper bench includes a 6'4", 6'6", and 6'10" player.  The Sixers are a gigantic team (in virtually any era) with a ton of length and some very good individual and team defenders. 

I really have no idea where this notion arose that the Sixers are a bad defensive team.  They are not.  They play at a very fast pace, but they lock it down quite well.

Of course we're going to be there. And I don't want to hear any of the BS about jinxing the team that always seems to pop up. It's game 7. It's our court. 36-0.

Yep. I fully blame this thread for last night's loss.
