It's got to be some kind of record to blow three double digit leads in the 4th

That's a nice clichéd thing to say but you have to have some major breakdowns to do that 3 times.

Yeah, I think "they just wanted it more" is pretty overused. It's not like the Timberpups went out there and just laid down. They played hard enough and well enough to build multiple double digit leads.

They got late in the game and started playing stupid basketball...which has kind of been there m.o.

100 percent. Me bitching about the iso and hero ball we always fall into when the game gets tight isn't gonna do shit though. All I can do is accept defeat with grace (as a Minnesota sports fan it's become second nature).

Agreed. Monroe actually wasn't terrible in his stretch. Philly would take him about now lol
Hard pass. We already did the Greg Monroe experiment in 2019 and it was a disaster. To give you an idea, Embiid was +90 in that Toronto series in 2019 and they lost in 7. In game 7 Monroe played 3 minutes and was -12. Yikes.
