    Brad Stevens effectively ended the Sixers' season tonight. He was two steps ahead of the Sixers staff in crunch time.

    He was toying with their minds like Thanos with the reality stone.

    Covington letting Horford get behind him on that inbound was brutal.

    Another bonehead mistake was Ben Simmons grabbing the offensive rebound with about 20 seconds left and immediately putting the shot back up.

    Sixers were up 1 at that point. All he had to do was hold onto the ball and wait for Boston to foul.

    I forgot about that but that was a HUGE mistake.

    Win probability probably shifted about 50 points on that one play.

    The Sixers immaturity and lack of experience was on full display in that game. Stevens is an awesome coach obviously but the game came down to stupid ass decisions and silly turnovers by the Sixers in the last few minutes/OT which don't really have much to do with Stevens.

    Completely true.

    As much as I hoped we would beat up on Boston, this was the more likely outcome. It pains me to say, but I have mad respect for the C's and Stevens. Top to bottom they know their roles and play them...step up when they have to, let the game play out because their plans usually work. Morris and Horford deserve much credit because their attitude and toughness sets the tone.

    For the Sixers...this is good for us. I think they thought they would just throw their jerseys out there and teams wpuld fold. We'll get better...seeing McConnell do his thing last night made me look forward to a full season of Fultz creating and taking ball handing responsibilities off of Simmons.
