Curry was so open.

u/ruinatex Nov 28 '21

This was probably one of the worst last possessions i've seen in a while. You have a 300 pound 7 footer who has 42 points, including going 16-21 in the FT line and Seth Curry, but the best shot you get is a contested three-pointer falling backwards by Embiid?

This is so laughably bad and probably the reason why Philadelphia won't do shit in the playoffs with or without Ben Simmons. Doc Rivers is just the worst, Joel Embiid thinks he is a guard in late game situations and they don't have a PG. Unreal how much talent they are wasting.

He just stays at the 3PT line as well. Hopefully it's just because it's his first game after missing 10 and it's a double OT

u/ImReadingYourProfile Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but Embiid looked really miserable or uncomfortable or something most of the game. Some of those closeups on him during ft's at the end had him looking kinda rough Clearly he played amazing anyway, but I feel like covid really did a number on him. Glad he's back on the court though.

u/M47theu 76ers Nov 28 '21

Even without COVID, being out for multiple weeks then your first game back going to double OT would suck for any player.

Embiid is known to have tunnel vision and we don’t have a true 2nd option so he plays hero ball. Love Embiid but this isn’t some rare occurence caused by absence. Hope we can trade Simmons or Tobi for a proper #2 and avoid bad losses like this going forward.

Lol Embiid looked like my tired ass after playing basketball. He's not typically that bad of a decision maker just looked winded. Genuinely might be Coviid related it ain't been long and that's a 2OT.

u/mnsportsfan Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

It’s pretty exhausting to watch. We’ve asked for it being a terrible team for a long time, and our superstar whines about calls a lot (but so does Embid, so it doesn’t make sense that KAT always gets shafted)

These are billion dollar industries so I find it hard to believe that they don’t twist games for maximum drama and viewership (superstar calls/ big market favoritism). I go back and forth on if I’m being realistic or just a poor sport as a Minnesota fan

30

u/majo3 Nov 28 '21

I had this exact same thought. If I were a prospective new owner for the Wolves franchise, I would hire analytics teams to assess whether there is systematic bias against this franchise (& a couple of the other perennial small market losers). You’re making a billion plus investment, I’d like to be damn sure that my investment isn’t being hindered by the league to favor large market teams. As a new owner, you have hundreds of millions, if not billions (over enough time), on the line.

Tonight’s game was egregious. And it’s the same fuckin story night after night with this team. Our wins are that much more impressive because so many calls go the other way.

It’s just hard to believe refs are actually that bad/lopsided? And when you pair that with some of the guys calling out media outlets that only cover the big market teams, it becomes way more plausible.

Then you see all the calls Embid gets and it’s so frustrating

79

u/HauntingLocation Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

yup, Embiid foul baits way more than KAT and complains just as much. Makes no sense why he shoots more free throws than our entire team and yet KAT fouled out in the 4th quarter.

The NBA hates the Wolves, simple as that. We pretty much play 5 v 8 in any away game and sometimes even on our home floor.

20

u/mnsportsfan Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

I always feel the same way and I go back and forth on whether there I’m being pessimistic and looking for excuses for us sucking

props to the wolves for the win

159

u/[deleted] Nov 28 '21

Any time a team gets 16 free throws and the other team gets 39, it seems pretty fishy when the margin is that big.

97

u/idonthaveagooduse 76ers Nov 28 '21

yeah, the only thing i'd argue is that most of embiid's fts were deserved. Still a lot of them were extremely ticky-tacky, and they wouldn't call similar ones for y'all

34

u/Doctor_Teh Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

Yeah, that's the whole issue. The vast majority of the calls for him are legitimate by the letter of the rules, they are just not remotely evenly applied to us.

96

u/marsupialsuperstar_ Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

100%. There’s a reason Embiid draws so many fouls, it’s literally impossible to guard him without fouling most of the time. And we don’t have huge bodies to throw at him. But there were some ticky tack tonight for sure

23

u/DucksAreReallyNeat Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

Seems like Embiid always does this to us. We just have no answer for him and he is very good at creating contact.

Still a terrible game by the officials.

67

u/SnarfSniffsStardust Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

It’s not that his aren’t deserved. It’s that the big on the other end gets slapped by Embiid with a no call and then tries to play tight on the other end and gets punished

Wolves fan, so yeah…but how could you overturn them at OOB play. There was nothing conclusive. If it had been called Sixers ball I’d say the same thing. That was not on the refs, although the were ass.

24

u/parkernorwood Timberwolves Nov 28 '21 edited Nov 28 '21

I think they might be referring to the later OOB play (not the one where Dlo got a hand on Embiid's past that went into the back court), where a wolves player bounced the ball off a sixer and it went out of bounds cleanly, but the refs called it sixer's ball. Even the homer announcers acknowledged it and were like "quick inbound the ball! inbound the ball!"

edit: this one

16

u/mysterowl Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

In my elation as a wolves fan I forgot about that one. That one was silly. You need to understand the futility of Minnesota sports fans which I know you fellow wolves fan). We just take that kick in nuts as part of our existence.

If there's one universal rule in the NBA, it's never to expect a foul call for a game winning shot

It happens but rarely at best

Refs have a hard time blowing the whistle on intentional fouls at the end of games

the defense was blocking Embiid's view, but he's probably going to kick himself for missing Seth.

Had enough time to aim it, make the shot, strike a pose before the buzzer goes off

Classic case of the superstar syndrome. Have to take the last shot

Even Michael Jeffrey Jordan knows when you give it to Kerr.

And LeBron to Danny Green although he bricked it.

even the sixers commentator was getting annoyed at Embiid not passing out of doubles during the OTs

And for the record, he's the most biased local announcer in the NBA

It took me until this comment to realize OP isn’t even joking. I’m an embiid h8r and this is too appalling even for me

u/mikebrownhurtsme Bucks Nov 28 '21

Because r/nba is full of the most reactionary dipshits looking to spark a hot take for upvotes, who then turn around and bitch and moan about how sports media is full of nothing but hot takes

u/big_nus Timberwolves Nov 28 '21

if seth cuts to the hoop at the right time Embiid probably finds him. But he was too close to the inbounder and Beasley could kinda guard two guys at once. By the time the passing lane was clear it was too late. That would be a crazy read to make though in that little time with that much chaos

Wait that’s a joke right? If not, this might be the dumbest comment I’ve ever seen here that’s been upvoted.

Seth was open with under 2 seconds left. Knowing how little time was left Embiid tried to do what he could. It’s easy to see in hindsight on replay where people were but if you’re doubled with that little time left you gotta hurl it.

u/primocheese1947 Nov 28 '21

That's such a bad play call. I mean Joel gets stuck with the ball in the post alot when he can't find his teammates. Not sure why you think this one is something that could work well.

u/hoppsmd Nov 28 '21

That's a terrible play set up for a big man tho.

So glad the wolves won. The refs were so biased towards the sixers it was disgusting to watch even as a neutral fan.

u/1UPZ__ Suns Nov 28 '21

Lol Embiid. Sells fouls all game and tries to be sharp shooter at the buzzer.
