mistakes and achievements
How many flaws we see? I’m going to share a full scenario, what they did?
When the NBA start, as Joel Embiid touches the ball in the post he was double-teaming and sometimes triple-teaming. The key for Embiid is double-teaming on the spot and passing it to the open man. The Sixers’ first basket of the games actually textbook in how to react to the double team by Embiid.

From the left corner ben, Simmon attempted three points less than 90 seconds in the game. It looked like he had a chance, but the shot didn’t go in.

Ben Simmon did a great job or not?
Ben Simmon less than 90 seconds attempted a three-pointer from the left corner. The key was that there was little hesitation. It was Simmons first attempt to make three points during the seeding games and 7th in this season. People will play him tighter if he shots more, that won’t happen actually until he started making them. It’s a positive sign in the game because there is no one who could tell where his game will go if the teams respect his outside shot.
