    April 19: Embiid: I respectfully told Nurse 'to stop bitching about calls'

    April 25: NBA fined Joel Embiid $15K for criticism of officials.

    what about the "suck it" gesture?

    No fred sucks.. But on the plus side our coaching staff just got more depth.. i am only kind of joking too, having a player with the ear of the coach who has been on the court with the opponent for 4 straight games can actually lead to some tangible tactic advantage

    the whole doc rivers running on the court. Them missing an illegal screen by Tobias on the last play.
    I cant complain about the T.O call you have to do that sometimes in the playoff for the refs to hear you.. The thing for game 3 that swung the game in my opinino was the O.G goal tend call. I was watching on NBA tv and both commentatorys clearly thought the ball was still going up and so did i. I still have yet to see the above the rim angle for if the ball was in the cylinder i retract my anger.. But man the replay they showed on NBAtv it sure looked clean

    The backbone for Sixers in this game is not Imbiid or Harden, it is Maxey, I hope Trent plays him man to man defence with no room to even get the ball. Maxey has been the indirect element for Sixers in this series. Haris has a knee injury that is affecting him too much, any vicious contact with him, he will be out. So, in brief, we have a chance but it will all come dwon to protecting the perimeter.
    On the other hand, WE NEED TO MAKE OUR FREE THROWS.

    I've been the king of bitching about the refs this series but they called game 3 pretty fair. We got the BS goaltending call but they gave us some make up calls after that. That's how it should be. We gave that game away by not hitting FT and letting Embiid get that wide open shot with 0.9 seconds left.

    we definitely should have won the OT game and you cant blame it all on the players the refs actually played a big role in that one.

    John Goble, James Williams, and Tre Maddox are the refs tonight. Still able to duck Tony Brothers. But hopefully this crew has a good game. The fairer the whistle the better chances the Raptors have.
    We'll see which Embiid we get. He was a lot less physical in Game 4 because of the thumb. Contested less shots, didn't fight for rebounds as much.

    Philly is back at home so Maxey, Harris and their role players will play better. Our guys need to continue to play well.

    Its Philly's game to lose. A win here will swing the momentum of the series.

    The pattern has been to give a Raptor 2 soft touch fouls in the first few minutes to set the tone. It's sad when the bball talking heads are saying "you know you're not going to get a fair whistle and you have to play through it"

    The longer this series goes, the messier Doc's pants get.

    I just hope the refs don't revert back to the Game 1 whistle. That deflated us before we had a chance to start.

    Hopefully Scottie doesn't have a minute restriction in this one. Without Fred we need the fully Scottie experience.

    No Fred, so I suspect they start the lineup that they went with in the second half of game 4, which at least broke even in its minutes.

    Barnes, Trent, OG, Pascal, Precious

    Then off the bench your useful players are Boucher, Thad, Birch and maybe some Flynn.

    Basically need to run the whole game with one of Pascal/Barnes, one of Trent/OG, and ideally one of Precious/Birch unless you have all your long guys on the court and can live with Thad or Boucher at C. Need huge games from Pascal and Barnes as scorers, and need Trent and OG to be hitting their shots.
