Why is Embiid shooting 7 three pointers? He needs to forget about being the seasons MVP and just play to his strengths in the paint. This means not taking so many shots, and let the offense run through other guys more often.

Ben with one of those frustrating games. Just shoot the ball ffs. Who gives a shit if you miss it.
Agree, his game plan is so predictable at the moment he just runs straight to the paint, if he cant get through he just throws the ball out to a perimeter player.

He actually does NEED a three point shot for his game and the teams, the amount of times his been in the open for the three.

Bens one of those players that if his assists are on he feels as though he is contributing to the team.

On a side note Paul Pierce said Simmons had peaked from his rookie year. Hopefully Ben proves everyone wrong.

Ben still not scoring as much as I want him to. Needs to score at least high teens to 20 points a game. If he isn't gonna shoot then at least drive hard to the basket.

Ben is so annoying to watch atm. On a fast break and instead of attacking the rim he passes it backwards and turns it over. Too scared to attack the rim.

Only box-scored games for the past month cause of logistics, but mostly cause I don't really care about November basketball.

Still, team looks mostly okay...offense is gonna take some time, ben is having a weird start...but overall it's not much of anything to get worked up on, nor will anything about this team until at earliest mid-Jan.

Will take Embiid's worst ever game, one in which they should still have won, to happen now then in May.

Also, if you're still in the 'they should have kept Butler' camp, get the fu** off it. J-Rich is perfect.

Never said anything about Bens defense. It has been great all year. I was talking about his lack of scoring in final quarters where at times he just stands there and just clogs up space.

He was great today. Went 7-7 from the free throw line as well.
