The Sixers did a much better job on Young in Game 2 compared to Game 1 as they forced him to shoot 1-for-7 from deep and he had four turnovers which the Sixers were able to convert into points. “We switched some, we which showed some, we even trapped a couple which we’re trying to avoid, to be honest, because he passes so well out of the traps and they have so much shooting. We just feel strongly you can’t give them one look and we’re just gonna try to keep mixing it up.”
Young is already an adept scorer who can make tough shots, but an underrated part of his game is his passing.
“We have to do better each game,” Rivers finished. “We’re not satisfied with how we played last game, there’s a lot of areas, in my opinion, we have to keep striving to get better and I think our guys understand that.”
The biggest thing Philadelphia has on their side is Simmons who after losing out on Defensive Player of the Year, will probably want to make a statement in Game 3 on Friday.
