Impossible to pick without knowing precisely Embiid's health. Obviously I will root for my Hawks in 6 or 7.

Without Embiid this is a close series.

Home court is so important here.

Trae will be a handful.

I can see Dwight and Capella getting into it and both getting ejected before the series is over :lol

It won’t happen. At all.

With Embiid? Sixers in 5, 6 tops.

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 wasn’t an easy out.

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

Not no damn Hawks. But hey you guys love underdogs. Probably what you guys have been all your lives. Wanting to be with the cool kids. Wanting to be in VIP. One day

What about Bogi? What about Capela? Who boards on his level with Embiid wearing street clothes?

What if Deandre Hunter starts taking your 3rd defender off the dribble and scores...while locking down Tobias. And not having to worry about anyone else on the team taking over.

What about when the benches come out and Huerter makes plays and Gallo gets hot.

This is all with the understanding that the game plan will be to stop Trae. Which is hard.

Who is going to make shots for you?

Bogi? Lame nickname you gave him. Guy is shooting below avg from 3 these playoffs. Scary. In fact the only guy who is shooting well above is Hueter. Sixers have defenders. No one outside of Young is creating their own buckets at a rate to be concerned. Contain Young you win. Real simple.

Ben is a facilitator who gets guys open looks. Seth Curry, Danny Green, Harris, Hill, Maxey who has been on a roll since getting minutes in the post season. That’s who is going to make shots for us.

Sixers avg 124ppg these playoffs while the Hawks avg 104. All the while playing much better defense than the Hawks. And you’re running off “scorers” and asking who will make shots for Philly minus Embiid. Hilarious.

You should probably move to the off season and figure out what changes the Hawks need to make to get past the second rd next year and be a legitimate title contender like the bucks, sixers and Nets.

I feel like a Philly win by Game 6 is the most likely scenario. Embiid's injury definitely creates some doubt and maybe Trae Young might emerge the best player in the series without him, but I still think Philly has enough to take it.

That’s...been his nickname since before he was on the Hawks. It’s cool that you don’t know that but it also tells me that you’re out of touch with basketball outside of your own team.

Yea, I’m asking who’s going to make the big shots. When the game is close there is no takeover player on your team.

I don’t care what the respective scoring averages of each team are. The Wizards were by far the worst defensive team in the playoffs (one of the worst in the NBA in general). The Knicks were not. And Embiid was a huge part of it!

It’s just hilarious. You’re talking about your team like it’s a contender...when you’re missing the best player. Embiid is what makes you a contender. Right now the Sixers are like the 09-10 Cavs without Lebron

Fully healthy, you got to take the 76ers. Without their star player, the Hawks have a chance. We all know the Hawks aren't really that strong. They're not a powerhouse like some of the other teams still in the playoffs. Their offense revolves entirely around Trae Young. They'll be lucky to get past the 76ers without Joel Embiid. If Joel Embiid plays, they don't have a chance imo.

I’m out of touch with basketball outside of my own team even tho I thought Sixers should’ve added the guy last season? Oh ok solid. You know another lame nickname? Tobi and Bobi. Tobias Harris and Boban “nickname” when they played together. This was prior to Sixers and during Sixers. Still a lame nickname. Not sure how you as a grown man can’t see that. Guess you don’t mind the words “hubby”, “poopy” and such. Rock out bruh. Anyway let’s discuss hoops...

No you didn’t ask who will be take big shots when game is close. You asked a general question. Now we are here with a totally different question than previously. Do we have a certified closer? No. But did we have that with Embiid? Think about that. Sixers have a collection of guys who will get opportunities to do what you posed as a question. Hence why Ben Simmons as a facilitator getting guys those looks is key. We don’t have a certified go to guy. If anything one of the sixers needs is a guard who can create and get his own buckets. Those not easy to acquire. Much like a RB by committee in the NFL. That’s sorta what Sixers are working with.

Of course you don’t care about the overall scoring between each team. You do realize the Sixers defensively is among the best of the best in the NBA right? Whole Embiid anchoring the middle shouldn’t be overlooked. Without them sixers still are a good defensive team. We have two of the best perimeter defenders along with a decent defender/vet in Green. Hawks have no interior prescience that’s concerning. Clint is a guy who needs to be fed buckets. He imposes no offensive threat no matter the matchup.

No I’m talking about my team as a team that’s better than the Hawks minus Embiid. And unlike you don’t feel any threat of them defeating the Sixers in a series. Where did you get any idea I’m acting like they are a title contender minus Embiid? I said same shit about Sixers minus Embiid can Wizards. And it took a horrendous officiated game for them to snatch a win from us. I know I know I know Hawks are sooooooooo much better than Wizards (wizards actually had a second half turnaround/trending up but let’s ignore that).

The only teams in the East that are a threat are the bucks and Nets. Sixers without embiid vs them is a done deal. Sixers wirh embiid and it’s a tough ass series. Not nearly as confident vs them than Hawks. If anything if sixers get last bucks or Nets? I like their chances to win a title more. But that’s thinking way ahead. You’re lookin at sixers minus embiid vs hawks like I look at sixers with embiid vs bucks/Nets. Not an easy task.

But hey good to see hawks fans come from up under a rock. Didn’t realize they had fans who poked their heads out and made it be known.

I think GOBB underrates the scoring threats on the Hawks to a degree however his confidence in the Sixers minus Embiid are justified.

Firstly, Think about what the biggest criticizim and the reason why Joel isn't the MVP this season... missing games.

This Sixers team has banded together and the bench has stepped up in his absence and ultimately earned the number 1 seed. Not the much hyped Nets or Bucks (and lets not forget how much dick sucking of the Nets has been going on all season and the Sixers still manage to get that 1 seed over them). It is ignorance to say that the Sixers are not a good team without Joel. Great team or contender? Not really, but they were good enough to keep that 1 seed and their are no excuses to not beating the Hawks.

Secondly the Sixers have homecourt and are excellent at home. This is a huge advantage and is more important to Philadelphia than perhaps any other team. They didn't lose a game for the entire calendar year in 2020, spanning over two seasons. Atlanta is going to have to win at least one of the first two games of this series to have a chance, if not, this one is virtually over.

Hawks are better than i thought, smoked the Knicks defense but i think what helped them was that the Knicks offense sucks and was easy to defend. They spent little energy on that end. Hawks will hide Trae on Green 100% but Philly will run him through picks over and over.

No Embiid I still think Philly is better but i can see Hawks winning, in 6.

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...

Not no damn Hawks. But hey you guys love underdogs. Probably what you guys have been all your lives. Wanting to be with the cool kids. Wanting to be in VIP. One day

LOL,

Some people got to find out the hard way. If you don't think the Hawks are dangerous you haven't been paying attention or watching them. They had the 4th most injuries of any team this year and the only one to make the playoffs with their main players missing so much time. The 2nd leading scorer and best defender didn't even play today. The Hawks are just getting close to full strength they are underdogs but not chopped liver wouldn't surprise me if they beat Philly with or without Embid.

Yeah He was crying today because Danny Green wouldn't pressure the ball. He was losing his mind.

The defender can't pressure the ball much when Trae is quicker with the ball, off the dribble, etc.; they have to give up half a step, or else it depends on how good you think Green is at getting the steal each time.

Yeah, the game clock is running even though Trae hasn't picked up the ball that was what Embid was mad about. He wanted Danny to force him to pick up the ball so the shot clock would start but Danny was afraid to get beat off the dribble.

Players who are exceptionally skilled with their hands could knock the ball out of their man's hands; it's an interesting point.

Trae cooks everyone. Just so you know.

Ben was thrown on him for a stretch in the 3rd I believe and he made things more difficult but it didn’t change much. Trae made the right plays. And it helps our offense in general to have the second biggest guy on the team 30 feet from the basket. That’s why you won’t see him guarding Trae in game 2. Thybulle needs more minutes if you want to slow him down. But then you sacrifice offense so pick your poison.

Pretty sure you are repeating yourself. Anyway Ben did a good job on Trae. He needs to guard him more regardless of what you’re saying. Thybulle as well. We didn’t get much offense from Green. We got more offense from Thybulle. There’s that. Unless you’re going to tell me Green will do better game 2 offensively which favors sixers. Pick your poison.

No one likes repeating themselves but when a person doesn’t listen it’s sometimes necessary.

Maybe Green will give you more offensively in game 2. Also...maybe Deandre Hunter will play and we won’t have to deal with a pointless Solomon Hill for 30 minutes. More poison coming towards you.

Anyways..yea, Ben did a better job than Green did. But look what guys like John Collins did when Ben was busy chasing Trae.

I still don’t think we’ll win this series if Embiid is going to be close to 100 and getting calls like he did today. But the original argument was Hawks vs Sixers without Embiid and after watching the previous series (if you watched it) and the game today you’d be a fool to continue that sentiment.

Sixers were 10-11 without Embiid in the RS and played the fvcking wizards to a draw.

You’re repeating yourself from another post you said to another poster. Shits weird. Doesn’t even apply to what I said. Anyone with a brain would put Ben and Thybulle on Trae to slow him down instead of Green who gets cooked. Doc is loyal to a fault and this situation is one of them. 2 all nba defenders at your fingertips use them. You tried to make it seem like Danny was an offensive threat whereas Thybulle isn’t. In general yes. This game? Not even close.

The more poison thing is creepy. Abandon it.

This game doesn’t tell me anything nor change my mind. To think because of game 1 that I can’t think the sixers minus embiid could beat the hawks is off base is ludicrous. The two don’t go hand in hand. When you change variables things do not remain constant. I thought you knew that? Guess not. You’re not even confident in your own team winning this series. Yikes

Oh that Trae Young is good at basketball? What a weirdo I am. I’ll never again say Trae is good or that the matchups being thrown at him aren’t working. This doesn’t even get in to the fact that I was talking to someone else at the time. You can read my shit and still hear it again once we’re engaged but I don’t think about it that way.

The fact that I’m not confident in my team winning this series (WITH EMBIID PLAYING) means I’m a realist. So listen.

If that dude who is one of the best players in the world isn’t on the squad..the squad is nothing formidable. That’s a fact. Every single metric and the actual record of the team backs that up. I’ll repeat myself again..it’s like if you took Lebron off of the 09 Cavs. Not quite that egregious but close.

I won’t even get in to everyone else (you should pray that Hunter doesn’t play). But Trae has proven to not give a shit about the moment. He’s a big dick dude.. You can’t guard him for 40 minutes. It’s just not a thing that happens.

Thybulle is the only option and that means you can hide Trae on the other end. You don’t have PG scoring threat who can also guard him.

Although the series already started, and the Hawks are up 1-0, this fact won't affect my Fearless Prediction.ô

If Trae Young averages 30, 10, and hits 45% of his shots, and the Hawks bigs contain Embiid to under 25 without requiring double-teams that opens up the Sixers offense (driving lanes, or open shots), or Embiid's knee injury flares up, the Hawks can win.

But the Sixers will win because they're the bigger, deeper and more talented bunch. Embiid with a healthy knee is unguardable. In 4 games versus the Wizards, Embiid averaged 24 mpg on 63.5% shooting. When he's on the floor, the Sixers look like title contenders, but when he's off the floor, they look like a decent playoff caliber team at best. Simmons averaged a near-triple double in the first round (14.8 ppg, 10.2 rpg, and 9.2 assists) and must continue the same production. And Tobias Harris led the team in scoring (25ppg) in the first round, and his size, mobility and shooting touch is a matchup problem.

Philly is bigger but more talented is a huge stretch. Game one should have made it obvious you are not playing Washington Wizards Embid played 39 minutes, more than any Sixer and you lost at home. Atlanta Hawks best defender didn't even play. Deandre Hunter is 6"8 and can guard 1-4 positions.

I know you got to over hype Simmons because he can't hit a 15 foot jump shot and shoot free throws but that's still no reason to hate on Deandre Hunter. Never said Deandre was a better defender than Ben Simmons but he is a better than Thybull. All real Hawks fans know early in the season Trae was struggling adjusting to new personnel and teams were trapping him full court. In many of those early games Deandre Hunter was the best player on the court, making plays on both sides of the ball. Nate McMillian and several players have said the same thing publicly. Kris Dunn has not been needed but I see you guys need Shake Milton.

1. Never said anything about Ben in relation to Hunter
2. Thybulle is all defense youíll see when itís announced so no Hunter not better
3. Hunter is a solid player I just said heís NOT the best Hawks player nor was he ever. In spite of Trae early struggles and his teammates ďvote of confidenceĒ
4. We donít need shake. We need a reliable scorer off the bench which Shake aka Shakey hasnít been. In case u havenít noticed maxey has took his time
5. Hawks Cam Reddish outside of everything is an intriguing talent. I hope he pans out. Potential is just a word, gotta go out and prove it. But heís worth keeping and developing. Hope he does.
6. Maybe I underestimated the Hawks more than I should have. Still like the Sixers in this series but a team like them is hungry and have nothing to lose/playing with house money.

I like Thybulle excellent defender, Hunter is better because he can guard more 1-4 and he is a better offensive player. What makes Ben so unique and his ability to guard 1-5.
Agree to disagree on Hunter being the best player early in the season, I,m not saying he is a super star like Trae Young but his impact was huge for us.
Giving you a hard time about Shake, I like Maxey and Korkmaz. I think you guys have a nice mix of veterans with championship experience and players in their prime like Embid, Tobias and Simmons. I still consider the sixers the favorites, but I would not be surprised if Atlanta won the series. Cam needs to grow mentally so the game slows down for him, he has all the talent in the world but does not know how to play within a system yet, he doesn't know when to pass, shoot or drive so he makes one amazing play followed by 2-3 mistakes.

Leaving Green 1 on 1 with Trae isn't going to work. I think we can say that with confidence lol. Curious to see what they do from here.

The trapping obviously worked but Atlanta will be expecting it going forward which will probably limit it's effectiveness. Probably a good idea to trap randomly, not consistently.
