In the last game against the Lakers, the 76ers relied on the last defensive round to successfully defend against Westbrook’s offense and won the game, but this was also a controversial round for the 76ers, because Embiid It seems that Westbrook fouled Westbrook in this defensive round.
However, according to the referee report in the last two minutes of the league, Embiid’s defense was in full compliance with the rules. The official explanation is that “Embiid stretched his arm forward slightly before Westbrook retracted his arm when he broke through for a layup. Touched Westbrook on the edge, but no call was the right call.”
Having said that, this still aroused heated discussions among fans, because even the catcher can not call a penalty, so the NBA’s whistle-off scale is indeed somewhat unpredictable.
On the other hand, Harden played for the Nets before joining the 76ers, and former teammate Kyrie Irving seemed to be accusing Harden of leaving the team in the middle of the interview:
“We won’t have anyone in our locker room giving up halfway.”
Of course, no one knows what Irving means. After all, when it comes to giving up halfway, Irving himself should be criticized for missing the game due to vaccine issues. No problem, after all, no one wants to waste their career on your Irving farce.
The last thing to talk about is that 76ers head coach Doug Rivers has sent Tyrese Maxey to the bench in the game against the Lakers. Rivers also revealed that the team will use a new starting lineup :
As we all know, the 76ers are a team capable of competing for the championship, and Doug Rivers is also a very capable championship coach. It remains to be seen whether Rivers can find a lineup that maximizes the talent of the 76ers team.
