McConnell, Redick Talk Game 1 Loss, Baseball & More on Zoo's Views Podcast

By this time, the Sixers have relived their Game 1 drubbing at the hands of the Boston Celtics more than they would like to count.

They've seen every defensive breakdown, all the missed threes and heard each of the fans' chants over and over again (see story).

The Sixers went back into the lab during practice on Tuesday to try and fix their mistakes. However, they won't be able to apply their adjustments until 8:30 p.m. on Thursday in Game 2.

So how will they pass the time in Boston until the next matchup? For some of the Sixers, it will be spent continuing to break down games … albeit another sport.

"I think we're going to the Red Sox game tonight, at least some of us are," JJ Redick said on the latest edition of the Zoo's Views podcast.

"It's my second-favorite sport. I was a pitcher, so I like the mental side of that. Just the mano a mano, I'm-going-to-try-to-get-you-out mentality. There's a cadence to the game of baseball that I like. Some people call it boring and slow, but there's a cadence to it that is very calming and relaxing to me because basketball is sort of the polar opposite of that where it's just frenzied and chaotic."

T.J. McConnell joined Redick on this edition of Zoo's Views podcast to discuss what went wrong for the Sixers in Game 1, how they can turn things around (don't overreact), the atmosphere at TD Garden and much more.
