I say play to win and just man up to whoever we get, if we have the 2 that is possibly 2 rounds at home. But, just a thought if they can control it.

Who would have thought that team seeding desirability would depend on where Philly lands, the final game of the season, and whether they could be in the top 6 or out? Parity city.

I do love how the NBA put all the East games at the same time and the West did the same, smart, as no team will know what is going on until later in their games. The NBA got something right for a change.

Basically worse setup occurred with the other teams last night for us and nothing at all got settled and basically got more unpredictable with one game left. Even the 3 way tie scenario with us and MIL and CLE is crazy.

Yea given the unpredictability we can only try to control what we can control now. We can control avoiding Boston’s side of bracket that should be the goal. We would have to beat Philly to get to ECF either way. Teams out West deal with these types of first round matchups every year. It is what it is. Philly is a house money series with Randle out and us probably being an underdog. We do match up uniquely well with them too with our defensive bigs, Deuce to shadow Maxey and OG to completely neuter Tobias.

Knicks can throw OG and Josh Hart on Embiid if they start screening.

not sure I want to throw shade at the Nets - because this was us for 20years of Dolan's ownership before he lucked into Leon Rose.

Nah, I want all that smoke.

Someone on the board has been pushing for the Knicks to avoid 2 spot to avoid Philly and in this scenario if we stay in 3rd we get Philly.

Not sure it matters who we play - it's going to be a rugby scrum.

I think we matchup well with the Sixers. We got I Hart, Mitch and Jericho to throw at Embiid. Tobias doesn't want any part of OG. Maxed is the wildcard. Need Deuce and DDV to slow the him down.
