On tonight’s episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve, Dan, and Emily are buzzing from the Sixers’ second consecutive impressive shorthanded victory (and fourth consecutive W, overall). Recorded immediately postgame after the Sixers defeated the visiting Chicago Bulls, 112-108, they discuss how the team has been able to overcome the key absences in the starting lineups lately and also the less-than-stellar offensive performances of Joel Embiid. And to what do they attribute the big man’s slow start on that end? How surprised were they that Doc Rivers challenged Embiid’s big block in the game’s waning moments on DeMar DeRozan? Does Doc deserve more credit than he gets around these parts?
All that plus a look around the league, a brief discussion about the NBA Top-75 list, and a farewell to one of the pod’s favorite theoretical trade targets.
