So thought he may go double BIG, but sitting White is a mistake.

Hope I'm wrong and Smart can stay with the super quick Maxey (maybe they put Tatum on Maxey?)
Better than sitting on his hands with Tucker, I hope

I am not sure it’s a good idea, but you do it to push pace and get a defender who is always aggressive (not good, mind you, but aggressive).
The lineup change indicates that we are not going to be pushing pace and we'll have White playing the second unit guard position with Brogdon.

Edit: I just read that link. I'm more confused than ever now. Is White not playing? Are be going super duper small w second unit? We shall see I guess.

wonder if it is Jaylen and they go back to Marcus on Harden

she really has fallen off, she was really good at one point.
I am going to say something nice about her now because once the game starts she’s going to make me want to rip my hair out….

I would guess that as her profile has grown, she has been told by ESPN execs to focus on pumping up the stars.

I’m not going to completely let her off the hook because she could still try and actually analyze the game instead of taking about pre-prepared and canned bullshit but I’m guessing there is some more to it than just her falling off

I like double big defensively, and that’s where they need help.

Offensively, it just lets Embiid sit around in the paint, which isn’t great.

TimeLord on defense is clear, but I hope his presence leads to more drives into the paint for lop/layup/kick out possibilities.

Doris does her homework but she seems to have a narrative that she doesn't easily abandon even as it moves against her.
yeah, like she just had a good outline of the change, how it helps on D, how it hurts on O... but once the game starts......

Won’t matter in the end, but I fucking already hate Marcus taking the first shot.

And foul on Williams
