Simmons had some sweet passes in the 1st half. Dude still has no offensive scoring moves though. Pretty bad out there trying to score. 6'10 Rondo.

Fultz went from trash in the 1st half to HOT trash in the 2nd half.

They played against the Grizzlies G-League team too.

I hope 76ers stay trash this season which they would unless Embiid stays fit. Their fans already act like they are future NBA champs.

How much play-calling does Mike D'Antoni do? "None. They won't let me. I keep trying. They won't ever listen. Nah, we have sets. I'll call a play after a timeout, draw something up and see if we can get a shot or something like that. But them running down [and calling a play], we don't do it. We have reads. We just want to play with pace. If I'm interjecting myself into the game, it slows the game down. I don't want to do that. It'd be the worst thing I can do. Ö For the most part, I don't want them to think. I don't want to call plays. I just want them to play basketball.

Dang, I don't know about this. Extension takes him to 36. I guess he looks a like a spring chicken to the Spurs when guys like Duncan and Gasol lasted pretty long. Gasol has surprised me. But man, I think they will eventually run into a bad contract, and I believe LaMarcus will be it.

He was going for an alley oop and got undercut and landed on his ankle.


Hayward got undercut by Crowder, and fouled by LeBron, and the combination of both of those things he came crashing down and his ankle turned the other way, and stayed there.

I'm with you man... If Ball doesn't play 75 plus games we are going to regret not signing Rondo or Rose. Although Caruso looks promising.

That shot by Kyrie looked straight as an arrow, from that angle was near sure it was going in. Just short though.
