I’m not a huge fan of Embiid but gotta give him a lot of credit for gutting it out. He can hardly move.
No doubt. I also admire his soft touch…but I find his demeanor hard to stomach. He tends toward being chippy and dramatic. If we wore green I’d feel better about him…

Embiid looking very much like Robert Williams post partial lateral meniscectomy.

Kind of amazing how good he is on offense despite barely being able to move, but this seems like a bad idea for them long term. I guess Morey thinks they can make a deep run and win the title still?

I wonder when his last MRI was and how ugly his knee looks at the moment.

but these last games the "Chippy and dramatic" is not as prevalent as it usually is.
Weird to be appreciating rather than annoyed by Embid, but that is the case AT THIS MOMENT

Same. Really impressive gutting it out.

But to my eyes (far less trained than radsox') it also has a Time Lord in 2022 vibe to it all

As productive as Embiid has been despite his massive limitations physically right now, I still don't understand why they keep giving him the ball so far from the basket.

Why does it matter that Lowry contacted the ball first on the previous challenge? As long as you touch the ball you can hack a guy on the shoulder?

I recollecdt several times Tatum got clobbered after shooting, and the foul gets overturned.
So .... yeah, contact after release is often not a fouled\

Damn. nyk getting lucky. Why didn't CJM call a timeoout?
