My Overview:

Joel Embiid playing exclusively in the post exposed one of Atlanta’s major weaknesses! This is the second time this year were the opposing center had a career night against y’all. 👇🏽

NIKOLA JOKIC VS ATLANTA HAWKS (1-6-20)

The Philadelphia 76ers unleashed their beast. Atlanta started double teaming Joel Embiid. But that didn’t work. He would kick it out to shooters. Also players were able to slash to the rim because of clear driving lanes created by Joel Embiid. Or they would pass the ball back to Embiid for a repost. I believe that was the game plan going into last night’s game. A formula for success in my opinion! Now play like this against a good team.

For the Sixers going forward, will they continue with this formula of using Joel Embiid more in the post?

Injury:

Ben Simmons (Out indefinitely)

NBA (bballscholar) Terminology :

Repost– This is when a player in the post passes it out to a wing player. Then the post player can now establish a deeper post position. The wing player then passes it back to the post player as he has deeper post position with a 1 on 1 match up.

I believe if you are capable of playing at least 10+ years in the nba. That alone is a nice accomplishment of durability. Your body has so many years it can perform at a high level.

DETROIT PISTONS BASKETBALL – TIME TO BLOW IT UP

THE DETROIT PISTONS HAVE BEEN ONE OF THOSE TEAMS THAT HAVE HOVERING AROUND MEDIOCRITY FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW.

IF THEY MAKE THE PLAYOFFS THEY ARE USUALLY AN EASY OUT FOR THE TOP TEAMS TO KNOCK OFF IN THE FIRST ROUND. IN THE OTHER SCENARIO, IF THEY MISS THE PLAYOFFS THEY USUALLY FINISH AROUND 9 THROUGH 12. AND THAT IS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF NOT TO GOOD BUT GOOD ENOUGH TO GET A TOP DRAFT PICK!

PLAYERS TO TRADE:

*TEAMS WOULD WANT HIM INCLUDED FOR A TRADE PACKAGE.

1 CHEST PIECE TO KEEP:

I WOULD KEEP ANDRE DRUMMOND. HE HAS A LOT OF VALUE AND HE IS 26. ANDRE DRUMMOND CAN STILL IMPROVE VASTLY. I THINK IT IS TIME TO GIVE HIM THIS TEAM SO HE CAN RUN WITH THESE YOUNG PLAYERS!

WHAT TO WANT BACK:

DRAFT PICKS & EXPIRING CONTRACTS. THAT CAN BE DONE THIS YEAR!

YOUNG ASSETS:

THE DETROIT PISTONS HAVE A LOT OF YOUNG TALENT. GIVE THEM MORE MINUTES AND SEE WHAT YALL GOT FOR THE FUTURE.

MY THOUGHTS:

NOT VERY IMPRESSED BY BOTH PLAYERS LOW SHOOTING WOOS BUT THEY HAD THE BALL IN THEIR HANDS 90% OF THE TIME. DUE TO THEIR HIGH VOLUME OF SHOOTING I WOULD RATE THEIR PERFORMANCES AS A B-.

TRAE YOUNG HAD THE BETTER GAME BUT JAMES HARDEN LEFT WITH THE WIN. 🤷🏾‍♂️

BY THE WAY IF YOU GUESSED IT , NOT MUCH DEFENSIVE WAS PLAYED IN THIS GAME.

AFTER THIS GAME THIS WILL BECOME A NEW STATISTIC. I BELIEVE PLAYERS WILL WANT TO TOP THIS PERFORMANCE!
