Who gives a spit about rebounds.

A number of times we stopped Embiid, only to have Simmons grab the O-board.  2nd chance points killed the Knix.  Happened down 5 with 1:23 left and PHI wound up with a Reddick 3 to go up by 8.  Secure that board and Knix down 5 at 1:23 with the ball.  Instead down 8 with 1:08 because they couldn't secure a rebound.

Well... Simmons is a freak of nature at the PG position.    I don't think Kanter would be responsible for boxing him out.

Lancela almost got a 5-3, his lifetime career average. You start him and you are looking for the tank which is OK. Mud, KK, and Luke looking good. Burke and Trier regressed a bit. Enes is in rebel FA mode? Franky, I  dont know.

Having the youngsters Knox go for 30+ in 44 minutes  and Kornet go for 20+ in 32 minutes

Let's us have perspective over the current ICONS  Hardaway and Kanter

Might not be a coincidence that we had 24 assists!  Two black holes taken out of the lineup

Other than Mario +2, and Frank's regularly  scheduled comeback game (+10) before his aggression wears off again,   in a game we were down 20 something.. Kornet was a +25 and Knox a +11.

I think it's hard to be a +11 and play 44 minutes and still lose by 3 because your teammates gave 14 points back in the 4 minutes you weren't on the court.

Frank Knox and Kornet all had great/career games yesterday.


They should be kept and played alongside Kristaps.


Everyone else is an extra.

Re :  Knox

I posted to Twitter that scoring 30 as a rook proves the Knox kid can be an NBA scorer.  But letís now see if he can be more than an average player

Yeah, THJ has just 6 assists his last 6 games

Shooting 40/30/90.  Really scuffling, even the points down - at 14.4

This following a better stretch of 15 games at 36% from deep and 18.7 overall.

How much is not being healthy?   Dont know - but staying healthy is a necessary skill as well, so......

(hear that, Mitch?)

Staying healthy as a 20 year old rookie big man and staying healthy as a wing in his mid prime are two different cans of worms, but yeah, hopefully Mitch is paying attention to his health. No Kanter cheat days, Mitch. If you get the hunger, head to the Wine and Dine for defensive tips and grilled fish. You can even practice free throws while waiting for your order.

Is it a surprise we went for Allen over Jenkins with the two-way?

Doesnt matter

Allen is a (Celtic) stiff but Jenkins has no where to play on this team

Knox is just 19 and learning when to shoot.
(as is Trier, Chop Suey, etc).
I'm much more interested/concerned with Knox's defense than passing.

  • Kobe Bryant
  • Devin Booker
  • Kevin Durant
  • Jaren Jackson
  • Lebron James
  and now?
  • Kevin Knox

Knox, 19,  became the sixth youngest player in NBA history to score at least 30 points.

KP didnít crack the 30-point barrier until he was 21 years old
