    • Curious what forumites' opinions are regarding this quote and actions by Embiid after the Dudley scuffle today.

      "First of all, he's a nobody, and when opponents try to do stuff like that, that's just to get us out of the game, I'm too valuable to my team, that's why I didn't react."

      "In that type of situation I just have to stay composed and be mature and let it go," he said. "Because my teammates need me more than (his teammates) need him, so I've just got to be mature."

      What might prompt the debate is that, at the start of the fracas, Embiid walks deliberately away from the scrum, hands in the air - so, does one think that's a 'smart' play to not get involved at all in the fracas, or does it show a lack of support to his teammates?

        Embiid is right. it was obvious to anyone watching dudley wants to get into with a player better them him. tried to mess with Simmons he took the bait. tried to get joel their but he knew better. butler screwed up and engaged. it's a win for the Nets. Joel was smart to stay out of it

        • So Griffin had an impact in the quarter, and Giannis held scoreless - yet the Pistons still down 8 after the first quarter

            Well, as a forumite that did not witness the fracas, but have read descriptions, I'd say that's the right move for Embiid. When a series starts to get out of hand, tempers from the losing team often flare up, and whether premeditated or not, guys on the losing end will try to drag guys on the winning team down with them. It's a temper/mental game within the game. And it's usually a so-so role player trying to get one of the best players on the winning team out of their game.

            Not saying you should always roll-over and fold, but if the goal is to win, walking away from this trap is often the best way. An ejection of a key player, or even a tech in a close game can swing a close series the other way.

            • The Pistons have that lost, aimless look in these games, that I know all too well.

                Blake's playing really good D on him. just like we saw with pascal. Blake is the perfect mix of strength and agility to guard that type of player

                  The rest of the team has not played with much poise or effectiveness.

                  • Drummond was totally taken out of the game in the first 5 minutes.

                    • HA Casey has commented that Thon Maker reminds him of a young Pascal Siakam.

                          • Ya wonder about where FVV can match-up with Bucks bench. Connaughton and Hill both have good size. Sterling Brown is a SG/SF. Other than Bledsoe who is much quicker and faster than FVV.

                            • Sure glad we did not pick-up Ellington.

                              • Harden went 3 for 20 but got 16 free throws. That game must have been awful to watch.
