    Ain't gonna happen so don't be shocked (or overly critical). Unless Embiid is really injured. jmo
    Bro... Simmons cannot play against Leonard... if Leonard is up against Simmons, Philly is done.

    SImmons wont be able to make plays... he wont be able to score... they wont have it.

    Green on Butler. Lowry on Reddick.

    Harris is tough but if Siakam uses his speed, he should be able to score on harris who will require to contain him with his physicality.

    Embiid is always a wild card but the guy had trouble with JV, now he has Gasol, he will have trouble with them.

    It wont be blow outs, but Raps should have Philly's numbers.

              another fun fact kawhi leonard has never lost a game vs philly his entire career. 13-0
              Another amazing fact: Raptors haven't lost at home to The Atlantic Division in something like 5 years.

                lol drake just becomes a part of the handshake line.
                The Drake Curse works in reverse, but only for the Raptors. We started from the bottom when he became Global Ambassador. Now we here.

                  I don't think Pascal can handle harris so I see Harris doing his thing and even though Marc plays him well Embiid is just too good. He'll do his thing too. If we can keep Butler, Simmons and Reddick relatively quiet we have a shot
                  I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.

                    • Well the Magic are who we thought they are. And so are we.

                      Time to make the Hinkies bend the knee.

                      I'll get the next game thread up once we have a date and time.

                        Its not a big deal but it must burn these end of the bench guys to get torched liked this.
                        I hope so they went 6:05, half the fourth quarter, without making a basket. Did not look good.

                          Worst case if Siakam struggles you quickly go to Ibaka... Ibaka can take him...

                          But I see how Siakam is before I do this...

                            Why can't Pascal handle Harris? He's not as strong as traditional PF or C. He's not as quick a wing. He's a classic tweener who fits nicely with the modern NBA.

                                Honestly Im not too scared of Philly the way Raps have been playing. They have a pretty porous defense, I think Kawhi and Lowry will get whatever they want. Embiid is crazy good, but Marc can match him about as good as anyone. Philly as a whole is loose with the ball and will give up a ton in transition, plus they go stretches where they cant score in the half-court.

                                Dont get me wrong, they could get hot, plus I dont doubt that I have only watched them playing poorly this year. It just seems like Philly is lacks refinement and overly relies on Embiid being the best player on the court, but also doesnt know how to effectively play around him. In a seven game series that can be exploited.
