The NBA playoffs are as competitive as they’ve ever been after this season.

There seem to be no clear favourites, and any team that warms up can walk away with the trophy.

One team hoping to make it back to the Finals is the Philadelphia 76ers.

They haven’t played in the Finals since 2001 when they lost to the Los Angeles Lakers.

But, Brandon Marshall feels head coach Doc Rivers is holding his team back.

He said so on a recent podcast appearance, because he thinks Rivers “just isn’t that guy.”

Marshall doesn’t think Rivers is a good enough coach to adjust to the Boston Celtics.

The playoffs are all about adjustments, and this may be a weak spot for Rivers.

While Boston adjusted to Game 2, the Sixers welcomed back Joel Embiid and had a rough game.

The Sixers seemed a little satisfied with the fact that they had already taken Game 1.

Now the series has shifted to Philadelphia where the 76ers are looking to defend their home court.

If the Sixers can win their next two home games, they will take a 3–1 lead.

But, there will be immense pressure on Rivers to get his team ready to go.

Rivers is one of the most successful coaches in NBA history.

He also has one championship with the Celtics.

Now he must take down his former team in hopes of helping the 76ers end their championship drought.
