I like our chances against Philly. We matchup and usually play well against them.

Raps in 6

It's an interesting matchup though... Especially given that you have the more talented players (individually).

I'd say sixers are clearly the underdogs here. We have homecourt plus gasol and ibaka to throw at embiid not to mention a lot of length to bother all of philly's scorers.


If kawhi and siakam keep playing at this level we'll be tough to beat. Raps in 6.

The homecourt is what I worry about most.

Sixers gotta steal one of the first 2 games.

Marc made Vucevic look absolutely useless. Heís the perfect fit for this series.....as long as the refs let him play.

I think gasol will give embiid a very hard time. brooklyn didn't have anyone to guard joel the next series will be a lot harder.
