Butler attributed Wednesday’s 24-point loss — by one point the largest of this young season — to too many missed shots by a team that outscored opponents by winning seven of its first 10 games. “I told you that from Day 1, we just outscore people a lot of the time,” Butler said. “We don’t guard nobody. We’ve got to guard. We can always score. What did we score, 101 [at Golden State]? We can score, but we have to guard.”

Damian Lillard says that teams can no longer face the Sixers without expecting a fight. “I think in the past we took them lightly. They kind of jumped out and played hard and they beat us,” Lillard said following a Tuesday-evening practice at the Sixers training complex in Camden. “This year, you have no choice but to respect what they’ve done and how they’re playing. They’re not doing it like it’s luck, they’re out there hooping.”
Despite the rolled ankle, noticeable discomfort, and around-the-clock treatment, Lillard seems determined to face the Sixers. Lillard, who did not participate in practice, said he is looking forward to the matchup. “I told y’all that yesterday,” Lillard said, referring to previously saying he planned on playing in Philadelphia. “I pretty much got babied last night so it was good…I feel good.”
