Brett Brown announced in the postgame press conference that Tobias Harris had a stomach virus prior to today’s game, and was NOT supposed to play. That is the main purpose for his poor shooting day (0/11 from 3).
The 76ers survive a Cavaliers comeback and win 98-97 to improve to 7-3. Embiid paced with the Sixers with 27 points, 16 rebounds, and 4 assists. Ben had a solid game back, putting up 15 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. Tobias Harris was very bad shooting 4-17 and an incredible 0-11 from three. It’s good to come away with a win, but it’s disappointing to see the Sixers blow another lead and almost lose to the Cavaliers. A couple positives to take away is that Brett Brown drew up a good end of game play and Embiid converted. Mike Scott showed a bit more tonight than he had so far into the season. And as usual, Matisse Thybulle wreaked havoc on defense. Anyways, let me know what you guys are thinking after tonight’s game!
My secret ingredient so my peach jam is....apple juice! Peach apple pie filling or jam. Testers ready go for Christmas gifts. Got more to finish and I can’t wait for them to set so I can put my personal touch to them ☺️
SIXERS WIN! Definitely not the prettiest win. Tobias killed us tonight missing 11 threes without a make. Just had an off game like everyone does but he made it up in the 4th with a couple clutch buckets. Embiid’s clutch dunk wins the game for the Sixers. The Sixers play Orlando tomorrow night at 7! 😤
Standout Stats :
Joel Embiid - 27 P, 16, R, 4 A.
Ben Simmons - 15 P, 5 R, 6 A, 2 S, 2 B.
Josh Richardson - 17 P, 5 A.
That was a very ugly end to the game but none the less a Sixers win! Embiid had 27 points and CARRIED, With the game winning basket! Richardson played well with 17 points. Tobias Harris was 0/11 from 3 point. Horrible. We now have a 3 game road trip - the next 5 games are all against teams .500 or below. Lets take advantage💪🏻
