The Sixer Sense Podcast is back following a beatdown by the Boston Celtics. The Sixers looked extremely overmatched in this game and it all but proves the season is over if Joel Embiid cannot return.

Jonathan Geib and Lucas Johnson dive deeper into the 117-99 loss on the road. Tyrese Maxey was the majority of the team's offense, although the bench scoring was a plus and likely the only good in this game. When you look at the negative, the most glaring statistic was being outrebounded 56 to 28! Rebounding is a lot about positioning, but it is also effort and the Sixers lacked that all night. In addition to dominating the glass, the Celtics scored over 60 points in the paint. Philly had no answer in the frontcourt which proves the backups to Embiid are not sufficient.

In Embiid's absence, the Sixers need Tobias Harris to step up, and recently he has done the opposite of that. Since the All-Star break, Harris is averaging 10.8 points and 5.8 rebounds on 32.1% shooting from the field and 26.7% from three-point range. For the second-highest-paid player on the team, this is just not acceptable. Is Harris just having a mid-season slump, or is this something more concerning?

The podcast closes out with Jonathan and Lucas debating if Daryl Morey is on the hot seat. Even if he is not, should he be? The Sixers' roster problems can likely be traced back to the lack of proper moves in the offseason and at the trade deadline. Should these errors fall on Morey?
