Sixers are mighty. They are playing well even without Embiid. 

Sixers +8

Yeah, the STUPIDITY of keeping Harden out there with a 20 pt lead. I actually told a friend of mine at the bar watching the game, "They need to pullt he starters out. WHat are they thinking (or not)?"

Then BOOM! off to the locker room.

And they're lucky Chris Paul didn't get hurt, he only plays 110% full speed, and is injury prone. That is trying to cover a point spread or what? The game was secure. They have blown many leads, but 6ers looked BAAAAD.

 

I saw two wide open 3s, the kind where the Rocket defenders just say "Fk it, ur open, I aint movin, just hit it" But Philly missed those open looks 3 times in the second half. That's 9 points. That is not 6ers basketball. They just took this one on the chin. Lace em up another day.

 

Harden was almost lost for the season.

If they're smart they'll just hang up the season now.  Let Embiid fully recover that knee, then trade him for a super star who isn't injury prone in the off season.  That would be the smart move

I don't see Embiid having a long career either but the knee doesn't sound all that serious I thought? Philly will have a huge problem if they re-sign both Butler and Harris to big dollars. Too much overlap in their skill sets

Philly should have traded Embiid for AD straight up.  Pelicans would have took him as he’s under contract for another 4 more years.

Butler looks more and more like a younger Carmelo. He still has defense (something that goes when you get older) but he's all volume and iso on offense, he isn't clutch any more.
