Greetings from Portland. First time here since November 2019, which marked Nic Claxton’s first NBA game. He’s starting tonight alongside Kyrie Irving, who is in game No. 2 of part-time status. James Harden is resting. The Blazers’ stars are out. Updates to follow. – 9:50 PM
Mike Lynch @SportInfo247
If the Sixers hold on to win, it will be Embiid’s 7th straight game with 30+ points and a win.
The only other Philly pro to do this was Wilt (for the Warriors in 1961-62)
The NBA record is 8 (Moses, Jordan, Shaq, Amar’e, Durant, Harden) – 9:45 PM

The @Toronto Raptors Fred VanVleet scored 32 points in last night’s 105-101 win over the Pelicans, going 8-17 from 3P range.
VanVleet has made at least four 3P in each of his last eight games.

More on this storyline

But if things go sideways in Brooklyn and Harden decides to test the market, Morey and the Sixers will almost certainly have interest. At that point, Simmons-for-Harden sign-and-trade wouldn’t seem so far-fetched. -via SportsNet New York / December 2, 2021
