Five Sixers thoughts: Dario Saric's stroke, Joel Embiid's historic pace, and more | David Murphy

1. Earlier this week, somebody was talking about watching JJ Redick take a shot. Whenever the ball leaves his hand, this person observed, it just looks as though it is going to end up in the hoop. It’s true, and whatever this sensation is called, its antonym is the way one feels when Dario Saric shoots a basketball. There is something effortful about his release —  too much elbow, not enough wrist, the ball flat and heavy out of his hand, its trajectory more linear than parabolic. From start to finish, the mechanism bears a subtle resemblance to a poorly calibrated catapult that releases its payload a split second too late.

Let’s block ads! (Why?)
