What’s a 24-point, 25-point deficit? Pssh. Nothing … apparently.
Fans might not want to turn off Clippers games until they can hear a lady singing, a bell ringing and someone confirming that’s it’s *over*-over.

Tyrese Maxey’s floater misses and the Sixers lose, 102-101. Terrible loss. 24-point lead blown in the third quarter. Starters stopped playing hard, Drummond was a disaster, comedy of errors late.

A Georges Niang-Tobias Harris lineup now on the floor with Philly down 15-8 #Sixers7:20 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Like a Bat out of Hell… Nicolas Batum picking up where he left off after his 32-point game on Monday, banking in a middy and splashing a 3.
All five Clippers have scored, with Batum and Jackson making 2 FGs each. 15-8 Clippers lead mid 1st quarter – 7:19 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Poor start for the Sixers, who are shooting 3-of-11, allowing the Clippers to shoot 7-of-10 and are getting outrebounded 9-2. Clippers lead 15-8 about midway through the first.

Good to see Isaiah Joe not pass up any open triples he gets in this one. That’s gonna be his main role, obviously. He’s gotta keep putting up those open looks even with the misses. #Sixers7:17 PM

Giving up assets to trade away Russell Westbrook for John Wall sounds as ridiculous as giving up assets to trade away Shai Gilgeous-Alexander for Ben Simmons.
And yet somehow both those ideas have been floated today. – 6:39 PM

From Doc Rivers pregame:
-Seth Curry still questionable with left ankle soreness
-Jaden Springer call-up about needing healthy bodies, hasn’t had a chance to watch him with Blue Coats
-Thinks Charlie Brown Jr. has chance to be “great defender” in NBA, that he struggled vs. ORL – 5:33 PM

Doc Rivers says pregame that it’s not strange to coach against the Clippers because the roster has turned over so much. But of T Mann, Doc said he could see his development “coming” early on. He also singled out how hard Zubac is running on his rolls of late. – 5:27 PM

Doc Rivers has raved about Tyrese Maxey’s work ethic. There are days when the Sixers have to tell him to rest and not come to the practice facility.
