Doc Rivers on Sixers’ 17 turnovers for 23 pts: “We were so sloppy that anybody would have got turnovers against us tonight. I thought the ball stuck. We’ve been so good overall at moving the ball and I just thought tonight we didn’t do that. The ball stuck on every possession.” – 9:36 PM

Dave Early @DavidEarly
By playing so much Embiid-Drummond down the stretch here, perhaps Doc Rivers is sending a message of some sort to Ben Simmons agent Rich Paul sitting courtside. 🤔 – 9:16 PM
