For a change, the Philadelphia 76ers were on the right side of an uneven 3-point mismatch, knocking out 15 three-pointers, to just eight for the Indiana Pacers, with a convincing 130-114 victory. Philadelphia took control in the second quarter, ahead of Indiana by 39-23 in the period to lead by 1
Joel Embiid: 24 points, 13 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 block, 2 turnovers
Golf cracking for Miles Turner, who didn’t get in trouble for a change while guarding Joel Embiid. However, I’m not sure Turner actually did anything to slow down Joel. The Sixers’ big man was outstanding in his 27-minute action, shooting 10-of-17 from the floor and 3-of-3 from the foul. Indiana threw very early double teams at Joel, but he quickly made the right readings to find open teammates for 3. Otherwise, Embiid served his usual penalty in the interior, but there was also a jump, including this memorial to Markel Fultz hesi download Jimbo from the top of the key. Real hoops know.
Shake Milton: 26 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 reversals
The calendar shifts to March, and Shake Milton switches the switch to dominance mode. The Sixers’ sixth man was a walking bucket Monday night, shooting 9 of 14 from the field, 3 of 5 of 3 and 5 of 5 from the charity strip. Shake connected during a 4-point draw earlier and continued to pour it with his usual set of rising jumpers and crooked finishes. He also had great settings for his teammates, finding Tony Bradley at the end of the immersion game, which made Mark and Alaa laugh at “Milton, Bradley” at all. Shake to get to his seats with ease and cross the defenders from your shoes? Sign me up.
Ben Simmons: 18 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, 4 rebounds
(A section on guest posts from my wife, who got on Ben as her favorite Sixer band this season.)
Ben did great. He is a champion. Smooth style, effortless grace.
Mike Scott: 11 points, 4 rebounds, 4 steals, 2 reversals
The four were wild to replace the Sixers in 4th place. Mike Scott went perfectly 4-of-4 off the field, including 3-of-3 out of 3, playing this role at floor distance to perfection. He also recorded four career thefts. Sorry, All-Star Domantas Sabonis, these are real masculine things here in the paint.
Furkan Korkmaz: 19 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks, 2 turns
Furkan was key in the Sixers’ first big jump tonight, knocking out four 3-on-three minutes in the middle of the second quarter. Korkmaz had the green light all evening, finishing 6-of-13 from the rainbow. It’s raining, Furky.
