People Don’t Forget
3 years later and I STILL cant beleev the Rockets MISSED 27 3s in A ROW against the Warriors in game 7...How is that POSSIBLE?— Mychal Thompson (@champagnennuts) March 2, 2021
Especially when you’re Mychal Thompson, and the 27 missed threes were against your son.
Every year Myles Turner gets some buzz for defensive improvement early in the season and I get excited for the Sixers to play Indy and then Embiid sends him to the deepest circle of hell— Kyle Neubeck (@KyleNeubeck) March 2, 2021
Embiid scored 24 points to go along with his 13 rebounds in a 130-114 win over the Pacers last night. Meanwhile, Turner totaled a whopping 11 points and 3 rebounds...
And He Knows It
Joel Embiid on matching up with Myles Turner:— Lauren Rosen (@LaurenMRosen) March 2, 2021
“I say this respectfully, but that’s a matchup I’ve dominated since I got to the league.”
Joel Embiid is fully aware of the impact he has against the Pacers, and Turner in particular. Nothing like a little healthy competition between two extremely large men vying for a second-round exit.
LaMelo is French for the Melo— Blazers Legend Ashtyn Butuso (@lil_buts) March 2, 2021
Petit Melo et Grande Melo. Le avenir est Melo!
Way of Wade
With this, Dean will have started more games in his career for the Cavs than Dwyane https://t.co/msEiVBWD4T— 𝙅𝙪𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣 𝙍𝙤𝙬𝙖𝙣 🇨🇦 (@Cavsanada) March 2, 2021
D. Wade’s four games in the starting lineup are actually one more than the other D-Wade started for the Cavaliers. That was a weird era of Cleveland basketball, wasn’t it Spencer?
Show Of Hands
Who miss hooping— Baron Davis (@BaronDavis) March 1, 2021
And who could use a 6-foot-3 point guard, two-time All-Star and third overall pick? The only catch is that he is almost 42.
