“When [we] designate our cutters, we designate shooters, you typically don’t want your shooters moving, you want them to go help,” explained coach Doc Rivers. ‘ What we’re trying to convince our guys is it doesn’t matter who scores when you go to the post, it matters that we score and we have to have that mentality. “If you do trap Joel, we’re going to score on you. We’re gonna give you every night, you pick it, but we’re scoring either way. That’s got to be our mindset we clearly have to take care of the ball and I think part of that is the space that we can create for him and the passing lanes that we have to create for him so we can simplify it for him.”
Having a guy like Green will be beneficial for Embiid moving forward.
His experience playing with those players, as well as his elite shooting, will help Embiid much more.
