"CBS. English Titans collide. The European crowd is all the table Manchester City takes on Chelsea and the Champions League final. Get set for the showdown at 1 30 Eastern 10 30 specific with you A few Champions League today. The UEFA Champions League final Saturday coming up Not CBS. All right. If you guys want to chime in Twitter at Tiki and Tierney go forth lots to react there from the reprehensible behavior by a few fans, for sure, but a few people step out of line. Unfortunately, Ah, large swath of people get painted a particular way. It is what it is, and I said to Tiki before If we can't comport ourselves properly, and we continue to devolve into cave men, they're gonna have to put partitions around the stadium. I'm telling you, so think about how quickly baseball No, it's different, but baseball acted with the netting. And once there's an outcry, you know whether it's a fallible that going into the stands or uncomfortable exchange or proximity from fan to player. There's enough noise. It will be addressed. So that no, it sounds crazy. I don't think it's that far fetched. Hopefully we don't get there. But I don't think I would rule that out. All right to you. Our next guest has been phenomenal. First, we had a great season. 20.7 and four e average PR over 20. He'd been lights out the first couple of games 28 points per game, and he's shooting a robust basically 60 per 62% the bias. Harris, who's been money this year for the high flying Sixers, Tobias, Tiki and Tierney, hey do today, but What's going on. I'm all good. Yeah, Yeah, yeah. Good here, man. Congrats on the win last night and in the first game with Syria's against the Wizard, you guys there are kind of taking control of the serious. I mean, when when you when you see the matchup against Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal who just scored and they those guys can score at least badly. Bill can Russell Westbrook had a rough night last night. Obviously, but it's hard not to get complacent. Sometimes when you know this, you're the superior team. What's it take for you guys to folk Keep focusing, even though you know you're the better team against this wizard squad. I mean it really, You know those two guys that could go off any time we play by the day this year earlier season having go off Uh, but you know, there's two guys that Nice form, guys. I could get it going at any time. So always keeps your heels and a lot of other guys wanna change. I can have a hot night. Um So Other than that, I mean, they've been a team after the All Star break as one of the hottest teams in the MBA. Think a lot of people forget about that. It was always fun that we're always pushing forward to the O most still working on how to get better day in day out. I think that that is a big thing that helps us Strike for more, You know Tamara's? Maybe it was the crowd. I mean, it was electric down there at the Wells Fargo Center last night, But what got into Ben Simmons? I mean, from the very beginning of the game, he's attacking the rim. He was. I mean, Allie, you boobs finishes dogs. I mean, he was all over the place We've got into him so early in this game. Usually you know, you start a little bit slower, but it was exciting for him last night. Yeah. I mean, uh, it was Justin Jones with throat again. His present the whole time. Uh uh. I think that in the first game he had a couple of easy baskets that didn't go his way. That it was love to have that and then it in When the game started, he was out there. Just getting, uh, in aggressive going after this match is that he was having heat smaller guys on him. So he's able to have his wife and just raise up and shoot over themselves. A lot. Aggressiveness is big, but I even thought in the first game. He was aggressive as well. Just didn't different way of Going out there and assisting at 15 assists. So Somebody that I think that doesn't get enough credit for what he does on the floor, lightly basic defensively and offensively. And he just had had to show everybody They did a full four way what he does best yesterday how to let him know what sort of Tobias Harris who has been great for the Sixers team up to zip on. He was great in Game one equally potent last night, and I just had a terrific seasons with us here on the show. You know we had scattered kneel on on our show yesterday to buy CEO of of the Sixers and we talked about a lot of different things, and you know it probably different for an executive versus a player. But we talked about What seemingly is is a little bit of a lack of respect for you guys compared to the shine that that the Nets get now you've been around the league a long time. I don't know how much you get wrapped up in that stuff. The off the core. You know who's getting the clicks Who's getting the pop on all the shows, but You feel that the Sixers get the respect that you guys deserve. Our time will tell. You know, I thought I look at it. I will tell me between that deserves the most respected. Between that. You know, she went all so It's easy to say right now whose skin with both respect but on the group. We understand what our goal is way. Let the rest of the chatter outside looking in the argument. We turn internally and Focus on what we could control. On way. Make it happen. I mean, I think that if you will look at this change two years ago He had the most press and the most headlines out there. Born unable to do much with it, So I'm kind of backfired on us in a way, So for me how I look at it kind of less is more. Allows us to just continue to focus and some bad, maybe use that extra fuel. Fire and just keep rolling. Yes, I was one of this is smart Veteran answer. I like that to buy us what you know if we said to you, and we will obviously the biggest difference, like the most noticeable change from last year with a different coach. The doc rivers this year. What is it?.

"Those two winning coaches need New York been out of Indiana, right? Stevens for the Boston Celtics. Couple of things here. Pacers again did what exactly and whatever they wanted last night, you got to give them credit. But the more impressive win to me even though the Pacers were phenomenal is the Celtics And Here's why, As Brad Stevens kind of alluded to That regular season was tumultuous for the Celtics. It never got right and so last night instead of turtle ng when they trailed instead of kind of going into their shell instead in the second half, they really shine for the first time in Kevin Walker was excellent last night as well. So the first part of it is that was a Celtics team that we have so rarely seen this year. It was also against a better opponent. Bigger White Wash was the early game. But the more impressive win was the Celtics because not only do they beat a better team, the Washington Wizards than the Charlotte Hornets. He also had an individual effort out of Jason Tatum, that if there was going to be an interesting Narrative or story line or reason to watch the Celtics the playoffs. It's going to be Jason Tatum exploded. Look, Tatum kind of Balances on this line of superstar. You can put the game on my shoulders with Good player. Maybe not a great player who cannot be stacked up with the five or six greatest players in this league, and it's too premature to put him in that spot. And witness this season from the Celtics. Tatum did not have enough games where you just said, Oh, right. He's got it last night. You could say that. All right, he's got and that wasn't a big slot. Big moment. A big game. Obviously. Wizards are a great team. Obviously the wizard tab of Ford of defensive issues, and last night Russell Westbrook was awful shooting wise. He just he couldn't do anything. Even little bunnies and lay ups. We're falling short. So it went advantage Jason Tatum. But if there's a reason to watch the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs against the Brooklyn Nets, it's with the prospect of is Tatum good enough on his own? Is he grated up on his own? Perhaps steal a game or two against Brooklyn? I don't think there's any way Celtics could win four of seven against the extremely uber talented Brooklyn Nets team, especially down Jalen Brown. But if they're going to make it interesting It's going to be happy. It's gonna have to be on the shoulders of Jason Tatum. So I thought the Celtics win was more impressive from those standpoints as I kind of just said. Westbrook's night. We all love Russell Westbrook in the regular season. We all love Russell Westbrook's triple doubles and his career record of triple doubles and the fury with which he plays. Almost every game out of the 82 in the regular season. But there is another part of Russell Westbrook's game of that is far too many playoff nights. Like last night. There's just far too many times you watch of the playoffs. It just is a toile. Last night he shot six of 18. Did have 20 points and 14 rebounds. But again, the shooting was just terrible. All night Long and Bradley Beal missed a number of shots as well between the two of them. It was 23 shots. Actually, they missed more than that. They missed 28 shots last night between the two of them. So there needed to be more efficiency. It's a wizard squad that pushes the tempo as we talked about yesterday, But last night, the transition game just didn't work well enough. And for Westbrook. Again kind of a whimper of a knight of the playoffs just makes you wonder why in the regular season there's just so much greatness and then why we get to the playoffs. There's just so many disappointments. Indiana moves on O'Shea Percent was excellent for this for the Pacers as well and Indiana will take on Washington coming up on Thursday winner gets the eight seed And the Philadelphia 76 years. 855 to 1 to four, CBS. 35 5 to 1 to 4 to 27 or.

"Guess. They still pull it out anyway victory over the wizards one, zero, seven to ninety, eight, a lot of sixers double figures and be just too much I. Don't think we're spent a lot of time on this game. Any takeaways from from this one guy? Beads really good. You know and having a player like that is enough to be a wizard squad even though this did seem like it shouldn't be at been as hard as it was. That's just kinda how it's going to be with the sixers I feel like it shouldn't always have to be a huge effort to pull out a win against the team that. You have a clear advantage against 'em beat has been great since we've been in the bubble. He had the issue with yelling at shake Milton. They had a game that came down to a last shot but all things considered he shooting over fifty percent putting up monster numbers. That's what you want to see from embiid. He's doing every single night so far as well. So. Yes. The sixers have won a couple in a row but. It's going to have to come in the playoffs to convince anybody that they're gonNA have a shot at making a run at the conference finals and NBA is GonNa. Be a monster. It sure feels like as it doesn't seem like there's a lot of consistent consistency coming from other parts of the lineup now. Ben went out of the game tonight only played twenty three minutes. But at the same time you know he's he's not going to have monster scoring games each and every night by harasses up and down Josh Richardson he's going to be clanking at times and the bench isn't GonNa come through at times so. On Joel Embiid to be huge issue feels like an yeah. They they haven't been convincing even though they're. Two wins in a row here and when it comes down to the playoffs. Like last year Joel was sick injured, and hopefully, he can keep it going every single night because it's not gonna be easy every slow. They don't have a an easy series because of where they are in the standings. So it's GonNa, be on his shoulders he's GonNa have to carry this team especially with you know they're they're number one ball handler from last year's playoffs gone in Jimmy Butler. Lee. I. Want you to spoil it at. Spoil it. If you want to did Troy Brown Junior, make your all bubble team. No he didn't know. For the wizards, there's one showing some lung yesterday he has. He has played well, he has fight well, but his team success eliminated him from eligibility. Taking team success. To some degree. Yes to some degree I imagine what been on different story if this was Bradley beal. For the very same wizard. Well it depends was putting up thirty five game maybe A. It's like for those young guys. It is an opportunity to impress the coach to. Sow the seed for the coming seasons to try to get some more time two more minutes but. They the honestly like if they win a game, it'll be it'll be a miracle really at that point, it could be. Your. Right. Well get to the later games from what day is it Wednesday or Tuesday it's Wednesday. The thunder they pumped the Lakers. I. Think. That's fair to say I think I. Can throw a punked on there right tap and yeah one oh, five, eighty, six was the final score and it's not like Lebron. We played ten minutes he played thirty minutes the Lakers were playing or other guys. But the thunder were honestly just feel like they're in control of this game. The whole time big part of that was Chris Paul who finishes with the whole home? Twenty. One, seven, six, plus twenty five and his thirty one minutes and just dictating the game. Make sure everything's under control doing a little officiating coach and a little bit over here. Think he was up in the broadcast. Booth at one point is the one person operating the camera i. mean he just did it all and this is a good win. The Lakers Lakers fans are songs are freaking out a little bit even though they've locked up the number one seed but this was not a great game for them. They cannot can't really hit a shot right now they're struggling daily green finally, hit a three. Yes. The claiming like you say, Lebron, it's not like he sat out the whole game he played and they tried. But this also had the feel that the lake is knew that they had wrapped up the number one seed and and the thunder. After disappointing loss in the loss game wanted to come out and and be better and they were, and then in the second half I, sort of felt like like all right we wanna try we don't really need this one. So. I think Davis scored nine points in the end. And that to me was. Pretty much what the message was from the lake. It was like we WANNA we want to get some Repton. Still we want to try to hit some shots and find some form, but we we not reapply for anything right now. So they really didn't seem to put up too much of a fight in that second half. Bad you know they're just not making shots I think Anthony Slater tweeted that they're twenty five percent from three so far in their bubble games and to me Lebron has been giving it his all defensively his body looks good like he's in shape but he hasn't been putting his imprint on the game offensively yet. He hasn't had a great game on the offensive end of the court and you know we've talked a lot about how it. Feels like the playoffs and all these games matter. They don't matter that much for the Lakers and it ain't the playoffs. So clearly, Lebron is saving something when the Games are actually important but I mean you got to feel a little concerned because the Lakers are doing a lot of lineup figuring out right now trying to figure out who's actually going to be able to make some shots fits well together who can play defense and actually Get some shots made on the other end. So they got things to figure out before the actual game start here. Yeah the closing lineups are definitely a concern. WHO's GONNA play with Lebron A. D. I think coups has earned a spot is getting a lot of minutes in those fourth quarters. But yeah, it's lure locking in Danny Green, and of course, like early the season as of were as was everybody as part of that final push for the clutch minutes. Right. Thank you for Danny Green in there. But are you taking a Mo- now because he can't shot, he's the perfect Lebron complimented sure would feel like but. Maybe, he is getting these clank sessions out right at the right time because Danny Green goes for these real cold times. So. He's definitely a candidate to be out there. But sometimes, he's doing a little too much bouncing of the ball don't do that. Don't get into Lane Danny just go hang out I mean it's nice to see an awkward Danny floater every once in a while it's Kinda. Cool to look feel like yourself is on a basketball court there for a second..

"Can't be real bad, and and that's the top. And lose a grown man who's to say honestly guys. Lou Williams wouldn't have got back to the bubble. Alerted the team, and whoever said Hey, man, I went to match city. Let's keep this house. This is something I did after the funeral and I was around, so who's to say that he wouldn't have reported himself. You know 'cause there's big rising saying Lou. You hurt the team. You'RE GONNA be out of an extended amount of time, and ultimately the safety of the Bob. The integrity of the entire bubble of the NBA could've come down at my magic city. Thank you know what I'm saying like the fabric of the lead in a you know the tough thing to you know, and obviously I'm sure Lou understands hopefully for the point, Lewis one of the players that was very outspoken on questioning. You know if if they should come back to the bubble in the NBA. Step forward and he said he even goes well. Why don't we have black lives? Matter on the court with the NBA do back lives matter on the court. Lou said, hey. Why don't we you know? Put put you know messages on the back of Jerseys in the age they may have been the. They were the first to it. They have not been as open as other leagues but the NBA said we'll put names on the back of jerseys, so the kind of not comply. It does put on a poor sense right there, but like I said I lose a program, but this is not a pro. tacos with Ryan Hollins Co host of the opinionated seven footers podcast Brennan Haywood. The Lakers had their final scrimmage yesterday. They sort of their. second screen second-string squad. Depleted wizard squad. What are you made of the Laker so far in terms of what you've seen, and what? What are you going to be looking for specifically to gauge where they're at Thursday when they opened the real season against the clippers? First off guys. I cannot tell you how important it is for. The Lakers have to started. Even though it was preseason with the correct attitude and mindset, they did not take these games for granted they didn't. They didn't sugar flip through the preseason. And you know when you go into a game like that. You're losing every you missing avery Bradley Right. You're missing rage Rondo for some extended time. I'm not sure if he'll I assume he's not Alfred the season to the remainder with the finger injury I. Don't know the exact time line there, but you gotta fill those minutes. Jr had an amazing game. Is there you don't Jr came into play not necessarily to ride. The bench Dion waiters, a guy who, even from early in his career that I, remember, he could create his own shot. He's a guy. You know if he gets going. You've gotTA respect his talent. In Clean Cook thought had some really really huge minutes for the team. So those are. The question marks how? How are you going to feel those minutes I? Like quin defensively Jr. we know who can. He can hit an open shot. That's an and he's got NBA finals. Experience. Guys forgive him for what he did. You forget time when score he may not be on the floor last two minutes in the NBA finals. Okay, if you're wondering, but I thought that was really important, and then even a guy like the White Howard. Who there's some quite who had question coming into the bubble. thought his energy was good I thought he is completely bought in, and he sees. How important is his ballclub? When I saw Jasmine Dion waiters out. There I get hyped. I got because I saw street ball in the court, and that was like the one element to me at the. Lakers was missing that Paprika on the top of the potato salad at once Bob is done cooking and he can eat the potato salad without the Paprika. About seeing that little and on top of that just. So good. Are we actually going to see them to do on the court together and games that matter because it looked like they were having fun. Obviously, they had a really good game, but let's look at the competition you. What are the chances you see that? I don't think they'll both be plan together. Because you know you've really eat what score off the bench. One Guy who can kind of fill up and create his shot the big act that we've heard to this Lakers Rauscher all year long was what guys if Lebron's not going. Who's going to create their own shot This lineup is roster was filled with a number. Number of three and diguise guys that play defense in guys that shoot three point shot not guys that create their own shot, so while jr falls into the hey, here's another three and the guy would experience to kind of feel somewhat wavy. Bradley was missing Dion waiters is a guy was going be called upon to create his own shot potentially off of a second. Second Unit or you know historically L. Z you You know Andy. You know what we've seen is that a team will go off the floor when we Scott played against the Broncos when the Bronx stepped off the floor, we try to put the foot on any any of the team that he was on because there was a lack of scoring the bald in. In movies well, they literally could maintain, and if you're a clipper squad, who by far has more firepower in the broncos off. He can't. The Lakers may not be able to afford it and a big series, so if dion waiters can manufacturer Jr Smith manufacturer, Hey, five ten minutes of the game or or fifteen minutes where the Brom can get arrest. That's literally all USO. Yesterday's game easily had championship influence implications there that they can duplicate that in the finals or Western. Conference finals, which I think is.

"So naturally, I told him thanks, but no, thanks. I've never. Been so disgusted with the wizards team. But then John wha went down air panda has been out of his mind. Saddle has gone all glue guy on us and this squad has become one of the most enjoyable wizard. Squads I have ever seen after the moral victory. That was wizards rafters. I asked my brother if he still had those tickets. Ben, I think they're by bit question that I cut off at the end of that. But I just do what to talk about the wizards for two minutes. They are legitimately really fun to watch right now. I have no idea how to feel about it. But Bradley Beal, do you see why I said the Lakers should think are trading for Bill right now. No. I mean, I see team just shooting itself in the foot every single night running up his miles for no reason. They're lucky they lost that game to the raptors in double OT, and it was a moral victory. But it was also just a victory in this team has got no direction zero. One hundred percent finishing coach or ninth place. Like, no question about it. This is the thing. This is why you need to travel more like people were saying and get yourself out of this Dc bubble because just because the wizards are more fun without John wall. Doesn't mean they're actually fun. 'cause there's other teams out there that are way more. There's no look KENNY'S Email first of all shadow to Kenny. I'm happy that you're happy. But it is really really sad hearing him, right. This squad has been one of the most enjoyable wizard. Squads I've ever seen. I I think there's still five games under five hundred but Bill is legit. And the Lakers. Look, they're not gonna get Davis. And Beal is about as good as they're going to do. He's twenty five years old. He's got two years left. We'll have one of the best deals in the league among superstars, but I don't know if the wizards were trade him. So this is basically just me talking to myself about the wizards great way to end the podcast. No. I mean, it's like one of the most beautiful cows ever seen. Identify with KENNY'S discussed at I have fit having a lot of fun watching the Saturday and ski big panda wizards. But then on that now, let's reconvene later in the week. And we'll talk to you soon.

"wizards squad" Discussed on First Take
"Compromised regardless of what the outcome is against cleveland in cleveland tonight i think that i think that you know regardless of the fact of the impact that cleveland could have on them i think when you're on your home turf and you're battling for something i think it has for more of a profound effect than in a game like this whereas with cleveland again i'm looking at the way that they've looked but i'm also looking at a team like philadelphia who i consider to be relatively dangerous only because of the fact that they have nothing to lose it philadelphia has something to lose that's entirely different but when you're those guys and you've been more abundant for so long and now you've got the longest winning streak in basketball and you in route to potentially winning fifty games and you're going back to the playoffs for the first time years and you've got two young stars in both embiid and ben simmons and your have absolutely positively nothing to lose if you were in potential playoff series against lebron james i think that could be incredibly incredibly interesting for young team to find themselves in and i think if you're a guy is the veteran lebron is you'd rather go up against an experienced squad like a washington wizards squad or team bereft of the requisite talent necessary to beat them like indiana you'd rather go up against somebody like that rather than philadelphia which elevates the importance of holding on to that number three seed which is why a game like tonight is more important for them than in this for the raptors just at this particular moment by the way what about the fact stephen a and we haven't even gotten here yet dwayne casey is having the same issue that mike dantonio been having you know with his raptors the dan tony's been having with the rockets recently meaning the team thinks we're believe at some point we got this wrapped up you know you can try to have urgency with us to keep us in a rhythm but the fact is a little different right but all the sudden maybe it's not wrapped up and suddenly they're playing the cavs and it's not wrapped up so.
