Embiid drops 40 & Shake is resurrected as Sixers run away from Hawks in game 2



Article Summary:

Coming into the game, two key questions hung in the air for Doc Rivers’ squad: How will the Sixers defend Trae Young more effectively? and How can they survive minutes from the bench?

The first question was answered quite simply: sic Defensive Player of the Year candidate Ben Simmons on him. The Sixers defended Young’s pick-and-rolls much more effectively, and Simmons’ length and instincts helped to vastly limit the guard’s isolation scoring.

The second question seemed to be headed toward another shrug, as the Sixers’ bench unit was gashed by Atlanta in the first half. To his credit, Rivers excised the all-bench lineup from the rotation, instead opting for a Tobias Harris-plus-bench unit, which unfortunately got killed in the first half, as the Sixers’ bench did not score a single point through halftime.
