    Is the model based on the whole season or do you have a weighting in there for recent performance? ie. post-Butler trade
    It's based on the full season, but as I noted above, the 76ers results are not dramatically different since the trade.

    Their offence is about 4 points better of late, but they've also played an easy schedule... I tried plugging in their last 10 games results and it drops to 60%.

    Keys to the Game:

    1. Just fucking Rebound . Limit the second chance points.The Hinkies are a very good offensive rebounding team and if they win this battle they have a great chance to win the game.
    2. Cut off the lane for Simmons and make him a jump shooter which he is not. This falls to Siakam and Leonard .
    3. Stay with JJ Reddick. The man is tireless but he is their only reall 3 point threat despite Jimmy hitting some late game winners. Jimmy ain’t a three point savant.
    4. Make Joel “No Cardio” Embiid run the floor. Do it long enough and he will suck the oxygen out of the rafters at the ACC as he walks.. not runs… up the floor.
    5. The bench is afforded an opportunity to have a major impact on the game. Phillys bench is paper thin. Take advantage of that.
    It would also be nice if they could put together 4 solid quarters. You can't play a perfect 48 minutes but just 4, solid quarters would do just fine. No coasting for 8 minutes stretches. Would love to see a complete game out of them.

    I'm seeing concern about JJ Redick lighting us up and Raptor defensive assignments, but not a mention on how weak JJ is defensively. Who is JJ going to defend that won't take advantage of him?

    Nurse needs to maximize attacking Redick in half-court offense schemes in order to draw Embiid away from the rebounding battle. Lowry tends to show up against Philly. Lots of transition offense with Siakam forcing Embiid to run, get tired, and make stupid fouls. I would prefer Kawhi guard Simmons for those steals, unless it's a late game situation where Kawhi needs to guard Butler. Lowry can rest on Redick and Danny can handle Jimmy.

    I feel pretty confident we take this one.

    Redick will be on Green, pretty certainly. Might be worth getting out in transition to catch them in mismatches. Or use Green as a PnP option and see if you can get some switches.

    We match up really well against philly. They are top heavy, but yet Raptors have a better player at every position except center. And let's not get started on depth
    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

    Agreed. Would love to see JJ guarding Kawhi on a switch, which I'm hoping Nurse pursues.

    I'm looking forward to the possibilities of transition offence, mostly because I can't pass up an opportunity to enjoy Danny's running style

    Respect to Max Holloway for wearing Raptors gear while doing interviews for UFC.

    It'll be Mike Breen. He was on Prime Time last night.

    Hes been pretty visible raps fan for while too. Its not just a shtick cause hes fighting in T.O. we should get this man to more games rather have him in drakes seats tbh. At least if he were to trash talk players they might actually be worried unlike Aubrey.

    The Clevelanders hanging with GS with a few minutes left in the half. Curry already has 20 with 5 threes
