The Sixers break their All Star Game fast tomorrow night against the Nets at the Wells.
And we are still digesting coach Brett Brown’s decision to move Al Horford to the bench, where he made an impact in the last game against the Clips.
Horford didn’t fit with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.
Per Cleaning the Glass:
Simmons and Embiid, no Horford (753 possessions): 117.4 points per 100 possessions (94th percentile)
Simmons, Embiid and Horford (908 possessions): 99.3 points per 100 possessions (3rd percentile)
Simmons and Embiid don’t fit perfectly together either, but they have a chance to with Horford on the bench.
After the Clips game, Brown said it was “arguably the best game that those two” have had to date.
