Sixers lose Game 2 | Phils Drop Series to Rangers | The Farzy Show 5/5
After some technical difficulties at the beginning of the show, we return to your regularly broadcasted program of The Farzy Show with Marc Farzetta discussing all things about your Philadelphia Sports Teams.
Starting off the show, Marc gets into the Sixers’ loss to the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the Second Round. Farzy explains that the Sixers lost the game in the last 10 minutes when James Harden tried to take over and doinked a three-pointer. It was not expected for the Sixers to win either of the first two games in Miami. However, hope has no choice but to flood in when they go on runs and get within striking distance. Marc references a tweet regarding Harden putting up Chris Paul numbers. He sounds off that if The Beard decided to fulfill the role as a facilitator and Duck Rivers starting the right center, the Sixers would have split the first two games.
Next, Farzetta discusses the continuation of underwhelming Philly sports teams with the Phillies. This week, the Phils dropped both games against the Texas Rangers by either not hitting the ball or not fielding the ball. Losing two games against a bad team was not a good look. The Phillies squandered two outstanding pitching performances from Ranger Suarez and Zack Wheeler. The Phightins went over the luxury tax, but the offensive onslaught has not commenced yet.
Then, on the Rothman Orthopedic Lockerroom Report, Farzy says that after the first two games against the Heat, Tyrese Maxey is the only one he is confident about scoring with consistency. James Harden needs to facilitate. He needs to go to Maxey and Harris as his primary options. On the brighter side, Marc talks Eagles and shows clips of Brandon Graham excited for Jordan Davis. How big of a step will QB Jalen Hurts make this season? With all these added weapons, things got easier, but how will Hurts and Sirianni shift this team into a higher gear? Hopefully, Hurts’ “wholistic” work ethic pays off.
The Steak and Main sponsor the chat check on Social Media, answering all the fans’ comments and concerns about Philly sports. Farzetta talks about how Doc Rivers and Joe Girardi are both not doing their jobs well, and the fans want them gone by the end of the season. What if the Sixers hire Jay Wright or even Philly legend Dawn Staley to take over as the team’s head coach? The Sixers will need Embiid if they are going to turn this series into an actual series.
Finally, on the Morning Rush, brought to you by Sky Motor Cars, Farzetta lets the audience know that the Sixers are back tomorrow night in South Philadelphia, tipping off at 7 pm for Game 3 of the Second Round against the Miami Heat. The Phillies return tonight to start a four-game series at home against the New York Mets with Aaron Nola on the mound against Taijuan Walker with a 6:45 pm start time. Please let the bats wake up!
