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.

Did you know that Chris Paul has a great chance to make an all defensive team for the 10th time in his career?

How many more years will Chris Paul play?

He is currently 34 and will be 35 before this season is over. I believe before he retires he has to accomplish these milestones.

Play in the NBA finals or score over 20,000 points & dish out 10,000 assists.

Bballscholar Calculations:

20,000 points

18, 537 currently

= 1, 463 away

10, 000 assists

9,542 currently

= 458 away

Conclusion:

I would say he would play at least 2 or 3 more seasons. Unless his body breaks down completely.

Toronto Raptors – 15 Straight Wins!

The Toronto Raptors are one of the best defensive teams in the league: They rank 2nd in defense ratings.

Toronto Raptors Record:

40-14 (3rd best record in the league)

Toronto Raptors Last Lost:

San Antonio Spurs on

1-12-20

105 Spurs

104 Raptors

In their last 20 games the Toronto Raptors have gone 16-4.

During their 15 game winning streak they have been decimating opponents with smothering defense.

The defending champs are playing playoff basketball. I am very impressed with their focus. I believe Nick Nurse is an highly intelligent coach. He is solely driven on team’s success. He strives off of it!

I believe they will end up with the 2nd seed in the east.

How far can the Toronto Raptors go?

They have the experience and talent to make it back to at least the Eastern Conference Finals.

Let me know your opinion.
