    I honestly liked this matchup for Philly soon as they matched up. Everyone is picking Boston but now that Harden got activated n got his squad a W in TD, and the D they play, who on Boston is gonna stop Embiid from getting 35/12+. Harden surprised me i don’t think he’s taken an offensive burden like that in playoffs in a couple years

    He played well when he needed to, no Embiid this game

    When he implements the midrange in his game he’s probably the most unstoppable. Vintage harden first year in Houston harden

    I’m really happy for James. So many people have been tearing him up and I hope he continues to do well.

    I knew someone was gonna have to step up and take charge and drop 40-50 on their rival team or go home early. 35 PPG AVG is a must in this playoffs. Top teams getting bumped off by the lower teams. I only watch the Lakers, but no one can miss any game this year it’s crazy entertaining.

    Boston should blow it up if they lose to the Embiid-less Sixers in this series.

    Curry did 50 against a team that dont play defense and he have mutiple stars on his team drawing attention but it was a game 7..Harden did it against a top 5 defense which I feel this is more impressive due to Embid not playing and no one gave them a chance to win this game eventho its game 1..🙏👀
