@DerekBodnerNBA

Too many people think Ben Simmons can be Giannis. He can't. Not even with same mentality. Simmons has never had touch, length, body control or strength at basket Giannis has. Expecting Simmons to develop into Giannis distracts from real progress he could, and should, have made.

Ben Simmons, whether he expects the defensive assignments to change for Game 2, where he would defend Trae Young more: "I probably would do that. I mean, I want to. If the refs aren't gonna call so many fouls and I can be physical and be 6'10", then I'll be 6'10". But we'll see."

Painful to watch Ben Simmons missing free throws after being intentionally fouled. Doc can't take him out - he's a star, a defensive force. Doc would risk losing him psychologically. But Ben eventually must learn how to make 70% of his FTs under pressure. Or get subbed.

The 76ers have guarded Bradley Beal w/ Ben Simmons, who might be the world's best perimeter defender. They’ve trapped & had Joel Embiid waiting down low for 2 straight games. And Beal has still managed 36 points in the paint in 2 playoff games. An aggressive attack mentality.

Schroder, KCP, Kuzma, Morris and Gasol start for LAL. For PHI, Seth Curry returns from an ankle injury to start alongside Ben Simmons, with Danny Green, Tobias Harris and Mike Scott. Dwight Howard (a better matchup for Gasol than Scott, a stretch 4/5) will come off the bench.

@LakersReporter

Harrell and Howard got matching techs earlier, but Howard got his 2nd by walking into Harrell’s way (Harrell avoided a 2nd). Meanwhile, Ben Simmons got a tech on top of it, so, LAL got 2 FT’s to start the 2nd Q. Caruso hit the 1st and missed the 2nd. LAL trail by 2.
