everybody who we are live.
It's Ah, 10 10 Phil Stifle Bearden on Village six years.
First game out of the seat, Eight seeding games dropped a heartbreaker 1 27 to 1 21 2 The Pacers and as the title at the bottom of the screen says right there singing old six years turnovers, Bad play, Sloppy play.
Al Horford still making the same mistakes.
It's what we've been doing dealing with for years now with the Sixers team.
Um, cause me to drink.
I got my favorite new beer here.
Keep May tan lines here.
Um, there it is.
Um, what's there to say? I mean, we turned in a terrible, terrible performance tonight.
Wasted Jolan BB's great great performance when he had 41 points.
21 rebounds, four assists, three blocked shots.
Shot 10 to 12 from the free throw line.
All just great numbers.
But yet Michael Warren went off For what? 53 points tonight? Uh, on 2029 shooting 9 to 12 from three point.
I mean, guy always seems to kill the Sixers.
And what can I say? Disappointing.
Ah, a couple things I want to touch on from the game.
Obviously, everybody's been hyping him up.
Obviously played pretty terribly here tonight.
Um, seven seconds in the second half was pulled again because of another foul.
Brown was asked about him in his post game press conference.
He just said, Flat out shakes mind was sped up too much and he was chasing the whole game.
Got a lot of early foul trouble, just kept chase him.
Hopefully, it doesn't shake his confidence because you need him to perform well in these seating games and in the playoffs.
Also, if you have any shot of making any former run because then if not, then we gotta go.
Raul Nieto, who actually have played bad.
He settled the team down a few times.
A few minutes he was in there, she 21 minutes.
He played a lot more than he probably should or be needed.
To me, he was a plus 14 on the plus minus.
Hey didn't turn over the ball that much or anything like that.
He didn't play great defense, but but he's serviceable for what he is.
He knows he doesn't need to take his shot or get a shot to do anything.
So that was that, Um, I got to go back to Al Horford.
Horford was a minus 17 in the first half.
He finished the game of minus 26 with 10 points in 23 minutes.
Around after that first half should it inside just pulled the plug set.
An example is the one thing Brooke Brown never does.
He never sets the tone by holding players accountable.
If you're having a terrible game or if you're putting out bad effort, sit that person down.
I don't care who you are or the top guy of the bottom guy.
You've got to set the example and pull that guy.
There is no need for Horford out there with a small lineup.
The Pacers missing two starters.
They're running 6 70 Car Sam Sets center.
We did not meet Al Horford out there when people sitting, um, so so run a different lineup.
I don't know why they keep doing it.
The Al Horford experiments over.
They better find a way to get rid of Horford and that atrocious contract in the off season.
This could be something after every single game we're talking about.
Horford, Horford, Horford problems that he has.
He does not fit on this team.
He looks so much older in one year than he did last year.
I don't know what else to say.
There some other odds and ends on the box scores.
Obviously. Device. Harris had a great game.
Also. 30 points, eight rebounds.
UM, was getting a shot.
I'm a big Tobias Harris fan.
Have been all season, and since we traded for him, he could definitely get his shot.
He's getting more and more confident as a leader, Um, and I've written about it before and talked about it for these teams.
He's the third star.
He might not be the local star, but he's the leader of the team, and he knows when a team needs him to take over.
He really tried to do that this game, but unfortunately, breath Brown's rotations and Brett Brown's lineups just didn't do it.
Um, you know, you could tell there was a point in the game.
The sixties were down 64 63 in the third quarter.
Sir, my nose is itching like crazy here.
They're down 64 63 you could just tell something was not right.
The Pacers were spent. They were done.
They were uninterested.
A team with the town of the Sixers going up against the Pacers short handed.
Should've squashed them.
They should, going on a 15 17.
Nothing run like the Pacers did against us.
Put the game out of hand and they did not do that.
And that comes down on Brett Brown.
Transportation and how Brett Brown manages this team and he does not hold players accountable at all.
And that is the problem.
Anybody that thinks breath Brown is a good coach.
Still, um, has blinders on big time and really needs to have their, ah, their their heads checked because he just he's done.
I was watching the postgame interview he was doing, and he just it didn't look like he cared.
He looks like he's already tuned out.
We're only one game into the eighth seed in game.
We've even got into the playoffs.
It is frustrating is disappoint.
Five minutes of talking about it, my head spinning in circles.
I don't even notice here to talk about.
I just don't even know what what to talk about anymore.
Obviously. The rotation.
Um yet Furqan and Horford were the first off the bench.
Netto got a lot of minutes because of Shake.
Shake only played 19 minutes.
That's that's gonna change.
Hopefully, is conferences and shook out.
Berks looked pretty style.
He was three for three from three point Land did have four turnovers, which is not good.
Uh, nine points.
You know, he played well.
He got his shot.
I didn't mind that, um, Matisse.
Ben Simmons is the one I really want.
Ben Simmons played OK.
His numbers weren't bad.
19 points, 13 rebounds, four assists.
Problem is the minus 11 and I think the minus 11 was just because T.
J. Warren went off.
Um, maybe the stats are that the plus minus isn't as bad as it looked there.
There's a lot of times T.
J Warren was just knocking down shots with a with Simmons hand in his face, but they also you also lagged off him a little too much there.
So there was not enough defensive intensity from Ben Simmons.
He only had one steel.
That's that's very unlike him um So there's that.
I'm So I want to see more offense him.
And when we get to the next game, Monday night against Sacramento are not Sacramento.
San Antonio just Richardson played terribly.
Four points. You got to do better than that.
Um, you know, four points.
No rebounds. One assist.
I mean, just Richardson, 30 minutes.
Got to get up. More than four shots.
That that's just clear right there.
Especially with Shake Milton struggling.
He should have no problem.
You know, finding a few more shots in this game for con over four from the field.
He couldn't find his shot.
Um, there's a lot to be disappointed, but I mean, John BB really wasted a 41 and 21 game from him.
He played 34 minutes.
Attack the calf tightness was no issue.
Um, it's a shame, but that's the way it is.
Thanks for the popcorn will go well with my Kate May tan limes right here It is what it is.
It's one game out of eight seeding games.
Um, I've said it before that the seating games aren't as important when Los Wise as getting the right momentum getting the rotation down right and figuring things out because there is no home court advantage, which on home court advantage.
Funny little side bit here.
And then we'll wrap this up the home team Pacers tonight you get your little digital fans in the background.
If it was filling, you would have no problem having all those digital filled behind it with fans logging on whatever it is cheering along, you know, digitally interactive.
Half the seats were empty, so the Pacers didn't even show up digitally on their computer like this, which is pretty disappointing.
Um, so there's that, um, but yeah, let's wrap this up.
Let's all get back to our Saturday night.
Let's close this out with We've got to do better on Ah, Monday night against San Antonio Spurs.
You know, let's not waste of Beebe's good performances.
We've got a quick there's eight games and 14 days that's pushed through this, but Brown's got to do a better job now.
Horford passed to do a better job.
