Sitting down and getting ready for what I feel like will be one of the better first round series’ in the NBA Playoffs.
15:27 - Didn’t realize the game already started while watching the end of the Wolves / Griz game. Trying to switch over now but the ESPN app isn’t being very agreeable at the moment.
15:33 - Raptors are going heavy on the Embiid double team, which was expected given the lack of size, buts opening up wide open threes and tons offensive rebounds.
16:39 - Whelp got distracted I the first half…
16:42 - Frustration evident for the rook, Barnes, shoving and trying to step over Maxey in the screen.
16:47 - Embiid swatted that thing like a volleyball before it even got close to leaving Barnes’ hands 😳
16:48 - Feeling really good about my prediction of Philly in 5 right now. Less good about picking Miami to beat them though.
17:00 - I was hoping the way Toronto can fly around would allow them to cause havoc and turnovers. But that hasn’t come to light at all. I don’t think Philly had a single turnover in the first half.
17:01 - Philly only has a single turnover so far vs TORs 6.
17:06 - Maxey, man!
17:10 - Raptors sending doubles at Maxey at half court! 🤣
17:16 - Doc Rivers just said, about Maxey’s performance, “he plays with no anxiety.” Feels like a shot at a certain ex-76er.
17:25 - Scottie Barnes injured, Van Fleet fouled out. Just not Toronto’s day. Hopefully they can get healthy and bounce back to at least make the series a little more competitive.
17:42 - Just more of the same here in the 4th. Surprised Embiid, Harden, and Maxey are still in with three minutes left.
