    Would have been nice to see the full team before GH's injury. They were playing so well in pre-season. . . .

    1/24 Celts vs. Cavaliers

    'Arsen shoots way better after he gets a rhythm dribble. He hasn't been good on catch and shoot jumpers, which is a problem with the way our team is structured. Also, from memory, it seems that he is shooting pretty well on mid-range jumpers. I think he's got to start going to those and to...

    I had this thought as well but remember the other bonus the Cs got from the trade was not having to deal with what would have been a very contentios - and very public I'm sure - contract negotiation with IT4.

    Marcus actually seems thinner to me this year but maybe that's an optical illusion. What I really worry about is that Marcus and JB have played a lot of BBall over, what, the last 18 months from the World Cup to a deep run to the playoffs. The irregular down time probably didn't help either.

    Wonder why would the Cs stay there? I assume they can afford a different hotel.

    Agree that Cs defense hasn't been good for 3 games now and Brad has said the same thing. Also they are getting killed on the boards. But I think BOS will play better on D. Particularly Marcus.

    76ers: 2020-2021 thread

    As I said in Wed's game thread, we've forgotten about Average Al already? I know Doris has. Embiid is shooting 60% in 2Ps and 40% on 3Ps, which are career highs by a margin. I'm not convinced this is just because has better shooters around him (I mean that wouldn;t matter at all on 3Ps.) If...

    1/22 Sixers Redux

    Most disappointed that for someone who is supposed to be really strong, it seems like he gets swallowed up a lot on both ends of the floor. Here's something that was surprising to me - GWill is now shooting 3s better than Semi. Only issue with GWill is that not only doesn't he take many of...

    Green makes $15+M a year. Harris makes $16M a year. The 76ers arev$10M over the luxury tax, which is one big difference between PHi and BOS this year: https://www.libertyballers.com/2020/12/3/22097455/an-updated-look-at-the-sixers-salary-cap-philadelphia-76ers-daryl-morey-nba It seems clear...

    grant Williams's regression is probably the most disappointing part of this season. With as hard as he allegedly works, one would think he would build on the bubble.

    I don't know if the foul mattered on this call as much as mitigating the elbow since Sexton may have lead with his head. Irving's arm wasn't over his shoulder either; I wonder if that had anything to do with it. But good to know what officials can and can't do on replay.

    I just went back and checked and the refs just overturned the call. The announcers (and twitter) suggested that Sexton was reaching in and lead with his face and that might have been the reason for overturning. If the refs hadn't called the elbow (even with overturning it), the Cavs...

    Celtics Sign Tacko Fall

    I'm all for experimentation but its not like this is the first time TT has played against Embiid. According to this website - https://www.landofbasketball.com/games_between/joel_embiid_vs_tristan_thompson.htm - TT has faced Embiid 7 other times and the most number of FTs Embiid got was 8. So...

    Still wonder what would have happened if the Cavs had decided to trade Kyrie elsewhere and the Cs had taken Sexton. Oh well.
