They were sending doubles. And you also forget the personnel on the floor. Makes a difference when you have Ben Simmons out there. He’s usually near the paint.

People scapegoating Ben Simmons but some of Ben's struggles are a result of Doc Rivers playing Embid more on the low block. When Embid is on the low block it takes away several driving lanes.
They also stopped running plays for Ben on the low block now the kid has zero confidence in his offensive game. Ben Simmons is basically the same player that Clint Capella is playing a different position, the difference is the Hawks play to Capela's stregths, and minimize his weaknesses.

Even if sixers would have beat the Hawks, how do they beat a superior than Hawks team in the Bucks and Phoenix?

We scrap. But...

Jrue will give Trae some problems and we don’t really have any answer for Giannis. It’ll probably be Collins.

I think we’re a smarter and more well developed team (already) but the talent the Bucks have is formidable.

If there’s ever a moment where it’s a battle of wills...the hawks will win that battle.

I don't think the Hawks will win if they don't get out on run on the Bucks. They needs to push the pace on offense and make sure they do not allow the Bucks to get out in transition allowing Giannias to get easy buckets. It's going to be another tough series but Atlanta has proved they can rise to the occassion.

Ben has to improve is offensive game, but we knew he couldn't shoot when he got voted to the All Star game.

The biggest problem is the idiot is not a "point guard" and never was and Doc brought into that shit that should have been dead and buried a long time ago.

Think about this, when the game was in the balance in the fourth, Docs big move was to bring George Hill into specifically guard Gallo on the post. Who then went onto abuse him.

Is that the only reason the Sixers lost this series?

Hell no, but it was numerous, similar stupid, little decisions (or non decisions) that added up to disadvantage the team in overall.

What ever you say it was also a bad series by Doc

If Ben played with the Hawks they would play him at power forward or center like they use Okungwu and Capela. Sixers had Maxey, Seth and Hill to run some pick n roll with Ben, they could have got him so easy lobs. Not to much creativy in their offense and it killed them down the stretch, Trae can create on the fly giving the Hawks a huge advantage closing games out.

What are you talking about? Ben doesn’t look to score! Plenty of times embiid was out Ben was in. And he never took advantage. He had a wide open dunk that he passed out of to Thybulle. A guy not known for offense at all. I don’t think you know what you’re watching or maybe this is your first time seeing Ben Simmons full time since he played your team. This has been Ben Simmons his entire career not taking advantage of his size. There’s a reason why it’s an ongoing viral video of guys mocking Ben by driving and passing out. Wide open under rim passing out to someone that’s doubled etc


But yeah genius observation. Open up the driving lanes for Ben to get going. Duh, why didn’t no one think of that!

He does t look to score. Sixers have run pick n rolls with Ben his career and he’s not lookin for the oop all the time as someone like Capela who is LOCKED in on it every possession. We’ve seen Ben get a lob and it go over his head. We’ve seen him catch a lob. Come down with the ball and pass out. It’s not an automatic 2 becuase he’s allergic to scoring. What aren’t you getting? It’s been 5 seasons of this. It’s not like sixers never tried to make the offense simple for Ben. He simply is a tall rondo on the Celtics who too passed up layups lookin for the kickout. Worked for him because you had ray, piece, KG.

He’s a p*ssy. His reasoning for not dunking? “I think Collins was behind me”. Like what? Even if he was so what? Go up strong? If that was Collins it’s an easy decision. DUNK. Stop trying to design offensive plays for a guy who refuses to score.

Only thing that made sense is Ben is better suited at the 4. He’s not a PG. But again since he’s nonexistent on the perimeter you have him and Embiid clogging the paint. And because he’s never worked on a post game you can’t dump it down and let him take advantage. I mean that pale Harry Potter character cooked Curry backing him down. Ben doesn’t want to do they when a guy like Lou is on him.

Who else was below? Tobias pretty much broke even. Ben Simmons avg 35mpg on 9.8ppg. Thatís horrible. And his shot attempts were under 7per game. Horrific. So please highlight who else was below?

Youíre speaking on regular season. Itís irrelevant. None of it translated into the post season. Ben Simmons was a dud. When your coach who has taken bullets for you all season made the quote that he canít answer if Ben is the answer at PG to a championship team? Thatís says enough. I donít think youíve seen Ben enough to know this is who he has always been. He has no dog in him. Heís not aggressive. Heís passive. You either have it or you donít. He doesnít.

Time sixers move on. The defense will be missed but itís replaceable. His facilitating wil be missed but itís replaceable. Sixers need a scoring guard big time. Otherwise Embiid prime will be wasted with a kid who refuses to help.

Tobias was ass tonight. Some of his shots fell short over and over. But the one thing I canít knock is he was AGGRESSIVE. Even tho he didnít capitalize and it hurt us. Iíd be a hypocrite to complain too much when Iím asking Ben to at least attempt shots.

Sixers had no Ben Simmons last year. Roster not flawed at all. Nothing got exposed besides what I stated. Wasn’t defense. Everyone knew Curry was a liability on defense the day he was added which is why he was paired with Danny green all year. Sixers were the better team they just lost. Underachieved. It happens. I thought sixers were ECF at best. With a slight chance at finals given things go well.

The Sixers were constantly on national television, unlike the Hawks. I know much more about the Sixers than you about the Hawks.
Last year you loss because you didn't have perimeter shooting, but blame it on missing Ben Simmons the same guy you are scapegoating this season. A 7 game series reveals who the best team is, the Hawks made more plays than the Sixers down the stretch.

Wrong per usual. Ben Simmons defended Tatum well. His defense on home as missed as Tatum cooked us. Like I said you don’t know a lot of what you post about. Chronic talking out tote ass. Then you said it wasn’t coaching? Yea you must have been multitasking on social media during the nationally televised games. Yanno wherever you go where the sixers fans trade Ben for peanuts and pretend were are the bulls of old.

A 7 game series doesn’t always reveal who the best team is. One day you’ll learn that. Then again you’re stubborn so maybe not.

But hey embiid get out the paint let Ben Simmons have driving lanes to the basket! That’s why he’s not attempting to score dude. So insightful

Wrong per usual. Ben Simmons defended Tatum well. His defense on home as missed as Tatum cooked us. Like I said you don’t know a lot of what you post about. Chronic talking out tote ass. Then you said it wasn’t coaching? Yea you must have been multitasking on social media during the nationally televised games. Yanno wherever you go where the sixers fans trade Ben for peanuts and pretend were are the bulls of old.

A 7 game series doesn’t always reveal who the best team is. One day you’ll learn that. Then again you’re stubborn so maybe not.

But hey embiid get out the paint let Ben Simmons have driving lanes to the basket! That’s why he’s not attempting to score dude. So insightful


You can't have it both ways with Ben Simmons he was needed against the Celtics last season but he is the reason you lost this season.
LIKE I SAID YOUR TEAM IS POORLY CONTRUCTED.
You who had NO CLUE that the Hawks had a good chance of winning which indicates how much you really know.
I tried to tell you but you kept on harping on the fact that the Sixers were the #1 seed and the Hawks were the 5 seed when the Hawks have been injured all year. We won the series without our 2nd best player, you guys have a bunch of bettas that why Embid blamed the losing the series on officiating.

By far. He’s living off his Boston chip. While he’s better than Brett I don’t think he’s done a better job this post season than Brett has. No way we should’ve lost this series to the Hawks.
Yup, no excuses. They had hca after all but the hawks stole it after game one.

You can have it both ways. Sixers don’t get swept first rd with Ben because he could guard Tatum. Would they have won? Who knows. Brett got out coached by Brad Stevens. Yanno “can’t blame coaching”. But you watch the sizers tho right? You really need to stop talking out your ass. Shits sad.

Explain how the roster is poorly constructed. Are you ever gonna back up your shit or just run your mouth? Shits becoming weird.

Sixers were the 1 seed hawks the 5. We handled the hawks easily in the regular season. You seem insecure at the 5 seeding. Do you want to be the 4th? Because hawks fully healthy wasn’t gonna be a 1, 2 or 3 seed. So what are you saying!? Not much.

They lost three times in their own floor during this series, the most important one recently in game 7. That's unfortunate, especially for a team that won almost 30 games at home during the regular season which were the most for an eastern team. Amazingly, the pattern in how they lost is exactly alike to what happened two years earlier in the 2019 ecsf. Just that they were the ones with the hca this time, unlike before.

The roster is poorly contructed because you are asking Ben Simmons to do something he doesn't have the skill set to do.
Rule #1 Put players in positions that they can succeed in, the Sixers are not doing that with Ben they are trying to fit a square peg into a circle.

The Hawks still aren't fully healthy, our best 2 wing defenders did not play.

Danny green one of our best 3pt shooters didn’t play. Not sure why you feel the need to post the inactive list. So f*ck it.

Ben Simmons has been at center and PF. He’s failed to excel. This team was built for Ben. Surrounded by shooters. So not sure about this idea it’s poorly constructed. Ben Simmons is allergic to being an offensive player. He provides no perimeter scoring even in the easiest spot called corner 3. He produces no mid range shooting. He provides no post up moves. He doesn’t run pick n roll well. Yet you’re talking roster makeup when Ben would rather avg 10 assist before he scores 10pts. Evident of passing up a wide open dunk. Like I said you really don’t watch the Sixers much to know what it is you’re speaking on. I’m telling you he has played without Embiid and looked like the same guy with Embiid. Sixers have shooters here. Curry, Milton, Green, Korkmaz. Ben rather pass to them than score.

Ben avg 15.5ppg without Joel Embiid. Roster full of guys who can shoot. And score (Tobias).

Idiots laughing. Yet banking on the Hawks whose primary scorer lacks playoff experience. Who will face 2 all nba defensive players. The sixers are seasoned from coaching to players for this round. The Hawks are not. They go as far as Trae takes them. Contain Trae. Ball game.

What sixers did to wizards last game would be similar to what happens vs Hawks minus Embiid. They would need that ref love badly. Keep laughing tho. Same idiots who probably thought Wizards wasnít an easy out.

Bucks and Nets the only threats. Only teams Iím typing shit about if a, b, c goes out way then...

Trading Ben for a all star caliber talent isn’t a mistake. Trading Ben for a scoring guard that we are clearly missing isn’t a mistake. But yes trading Ben just to trade without addressing the immediate needs on this roster is a mistake. That I would not do. Cap expiring dudes, draft picks, young player. Nah that’s setting you back. If sixers keep Ben they need to find a PG (Lowry? Might be too expensive) and another scorer off the bench is a must. Haven’t checked the free agent list.

You simply don't know what your talking about, if you believe Korkmaz has the upside of Cam Reddish. Cam Reddish is 6"8 with a 7 foot wing span can guard players like Durant and Tatam and is a scoring threat. Cam Reddish is 21 years old, came out of school after 1 year in college and started his rookie season. He was always going to take time to develop but if you knew anything about Hawks basketball you would know the organization is super high on Reddish.

You can't only look at his numbers. The Hawks played Cam Reddish, Hunter as starters their rookie year along with Heurter not to win games but to gain experience. He was raw coming out of Duke and always needed time to develop the Hawks played him early to speed that up. Not too many NBA players can do what he can at 6"8, he is in the mold of Paul George with the right development.
People thought Deandre Hunter was a bust because he struggled early too and he is two years older than Reddish and closer to his ceiling.
Mark my words, people we change thier tune on Cam Reddish just like they did Trae once he gets healthy and he is playing under Nate

I can see why you believe Cam is a bust, if I didn't watch the Hawks so closely I would have the same impression. The irony is most true hawks thought Cam Reddish was going to break out this season, not Deandre Hunter because how how great Cam played in the 2nd half of last season. The Hawks are simply a very young team, who played players who really had no business starting or getting heavy minutes in the NBA team because they were in rebuild mode. Cam has already shown flashes of greatness he just needs time to develop, This video is over the top but it does highlight how special of a talent Cam is and why most Hawks fans are very excited about what he will become in the future.

He was playing with a achillis injury the majority of the season before the team decided to shut him down. Even if what you say is true and he never reaches his offensive potential he will be an elite defender in this league. The kid is still growing, reports are he is almost 6"10 now. He can't be worse than Ben Simmons who was an All Star because of his defense.
