Oh, man, I think we're live.
Uh, seven Internet connection issues there, but filled people here, a k a.
The knowledge on Twitter.
We just watched the first half of the six years.
First of eight seeding teams.
Playoff playing games, wherever you want to call them.
And what have we seen? The same old same old six years down.
What is it? 61? 55 at the half.
That came out on fire.
And I think there are about 12 4 14 7 right away.
They got the ball download of Ben Simmons and Ah, Jolan Bebe.
They were taking advantage or size advantage.
The Pacers are extremely short.
Short, short right now on their players Have a couple of injuries.
Specifically Sabonis, uh, who's a really good center and always gives us six years fits, Uh, but the others Pacer T.
Warren, who always always, always seems to go off on the Sixers, had himself a hell of 1/2 had himself a hell of a game If he didn't score the rest of the game, he's still probably lead the game and scoring.
He had 29 points on 12 of 16 shooting for five from three.
Um, somebody's got to guard that guy on.
We knew that coming into the game, someone was on my timeline earlier, saying that exact thing.
Somebody guard that man.
Don't let him go off.
And he did exactly that.
He let us let he's going off on us right now.
Um, something happened at the end of the first quarter there between Joe and Beat and shake Milton, they got into a little shouting match.
Not sure what that was about.
Can't wait till see after the game.
I'm sure they won't say much about it, but instantly.
Right after that happened, we come back from commercial break and everybody's favorite. Raul.
His name is not Trey Burke and NATO was in the game, Um, which you know, I always say, May it made Meadow is a really good guy to have on your team.
He's that guy that knows ah what his role is on a team to settle a team down in a bad spot.
He did exactly that.
We re took the lead within a few minutes of him coming into the game.
He doesn't need to shoot.
He doesn't need to score.
He doesn't need to do anything.
His job is to settle a team down when needed.
He's basically the T J McConnell that we used tohave and T J was doing T.
J. McConnell things for the Pacers.
I love the guy, but now I can't stand him when we're playing against him because he just gets in.
That backcourt causes a descript disruption at home.
A couple of our odds and notes that 17 overrun by the Pacers, that was That was terrible.
Can't have that happen.
Turnovers continue to be a problem.
14 turnovers Feel like I've been saying Turnovers is a problem for seven years now, the entire time that Brett Brown's been around, it's not good.
Proud eventually is teach a little discipline for this team.
Obviously, he's not doing that in seven years are leading scores for the Sixers yet Tobias Harris had 13 Jolan B but 15 points and nine rebounds.
Ben Simmons again stuffing the stat sheet 8.
6 rebounds, Three assists.
Or maybe I got those assistant rebounds backwards there.
Me double check on that.
I didn't actually write down whatever.
6 rebounds three assists.
Um, you know not what we wanted to see for the first game back.
The thing that I noticed the Pacers do a lot. Their hands are up.
A lot of those turnovers are on passes when they're trying to get the ball into the block or cross passes their hands up there tipping passes, the creating turnovers.
Six has gotta be a crisper in the second hand with their passes that that's really what it comes down to.
Stop, turn the ball over. Couple thing.
Other notes that I want to know.
You know, Trey Burke came into the gate or not. Trey Burke.
See, I'm talking about in WRAL Netto.
I'm thinking Trey Burke again.
Um, Al Barks came into the game, knocked down a couple threes, also had a couple turnovers with one that in between those threes from Berks, and I noticed Matisse made a really good three point shot from the corner with his defense.
If he can get back to knocking that shot down like he did early in his rookie year here, this year will be crucial for the Sixers, and I guarantee he'll get a lot of playoff minutes with his defense is skill, if you can knock down that corner. Three.
All these needed to do.
He doesn't need to score regular.
He doesn't need to shoot a bunch of shots.
Usually, Auto consistently knocked down two or three shots a game, plays stellar defense, and he did that in the first half.
Love seeing that.
Let's see anything else that sticks out in this box. Score.
Seven of eight from the free throw line.
Ben Simmons missing two free throws.
It's like nothing changed since the since the the MBA stop back in March, because a cove it means same old, same old team.
Frustrating turnovers only had two steals, which was a little low for them.
You know, teams got to come out in the second half.
Play much better.
We'll see what happens.
Would be curious after the game to see what happened with Shake Milton on Joel and be, um, no rotation for Brett Brown.
Mazin Al Horford First off the bench.
Not sure I agree with that.
I might have liked to see Birks and Furqan come off the bench first with this team that they're playing the Pacers being such a small team.
Lineup wise, you really didn't each Al Horford out there? Um, he three points, two rebounds, assists a block.
We had three turnovers.
He's leading the team with a minus 17 here at the half.
That's Ah, that's not gonna get the job done.
You know, the Al Horford people he had that one game in the scrimmage is that he knocked out a bunch of three pointers.
The Al Horford thing.
It's over. Let's just move on.
You know, it's just not working.
So I weigh half times almost over.
Gonna get back out there, watch the second half cheer on this team.
Sixers and I will be back after the game to break it all down.
Break down the second half and all that great stuff.
I might try to wait a little after the game so I can hear some of Brown's press conference, but let's go six years.
Let's not turn the ball over and somebody body up.
Warren, you all have a good one.
We'll talk again in a little bit
