The line moved a half point (from Sixers +7.5 to Sixers +8) with the announcement that Doc was starting Deandre Jordan at center lol – 7:14 PM

Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
DeAndre Jordan in Sixers starting lineup means three things.
1) More tough and more aggressive Sixers defense
2) Some PnR action and lobs from Harden
3) More space on offense for Maxey-Harris

Philadelphia’s DeAndre Jordan gets the Game 1 start at center in the place of the injured Joel Embiid tonight at Miami.
Embiid is the seventh current All-Star to miss at least one game in these playoffs… three shy of the single-season NBA record: marcstein.substack.com/p/a-slow-spinn… – 7:06 PM

More on this storyline

Gina Mizell: Tyrese Maxey on notion the Sixers must “survive” (at least) Games 1 and 2 without Embiid: “I wouldn’t say‘ survive. ’ I would say go out there and compete as hard as always try to win the game. ” -via Twitter @ginamizell / May 2, 2022

Adrian Wojnarowski: ESPN Sources: Joel Embiid won’t travel for Games 1 and 2 in Miami, but there’s optimism he could return as soon as either Game 3 or 4 in Philadelphia. He needs to clear concussion protocols and see doctor mid-week on his orbital fracture. More on NBA Countdown at 12:30 ET on ABC. -via Twitter @wojespn / May 1, 2022

Austin Krell: Rivers says there’s hope that Joel returns, but there’s not a ton of clarity yet. Says team will go center by committee. Mentions that DeAndre Jordan’s height had significance in one of the reg season games vs Miami. Team will go more Harden-centric with more spacing. -via Twitter @NBAKrell / April 30, 2022
