The start of the James Harden era was a rousing success! In The Beard’s debut, the Sixers blew out the Timberwolves by a 133-102 score. Harden finished with 27 points, eight rebounds, and 12 assists against just two turnovers.

Dave Early joined Sean on the pod to discuss:

  • How Harden didn’t show any rust after the layoff and how his passing jumpstarted the offense.
  • The Harden-Embiid pairing and how each adapted his game a little bit to accommodate the other.
  • Maxey’s shift to more of a secondary creator role given Harden’s arrival and how Tyrese thrived.
  • Doc’s new staggered lineups.
  • Matisse Thybulle as the fifth starter.
  • Paul Millsap getting the extended look as the backup center option.
