On this week’s episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Dan, Emily and Steve are searching for answers as some red-hot shooting and inexplicable coaching decisions have put the Sixers behind 1-0 to the Atlanta Hawks in the semifinal series. The gang is also joined by the great Zainab Javed. Together, they discuss: Joel Embiid’s injury and 39-point performance, Doc Rivers’ decisions in game 1, how to guard and/or hunt Trae Young, Ben Simmons’ issues at the free throw line, adjustments they’d like to see in game 2 and much more.
Also! Zainab makes a special announcement about the upcoming Mike Scott hive tailgate in the near future. She also tells the pod about what it’s been like to support Mike Scott in Philadelphia through thick and thin.
