- All NBA Teams
Walked in with a group of Army fans & one said to the pack, “this is Lincoln Financial Field, Home of the first team to go 7-9 & win the Super Bowl. Mark my words.”
Complete list of teams in NBA who are undefeated at home:
Just four players in 76ers history have ever recorded seven or more blocks through three career games:
76ers have only played 10 games with all their starters. Yet they're the last unbeaten home team in the league, one of three teams with 20 wins, and are second in the Eastern Conference. That's something. Players, coaches, front office all deserve credit. #PhilaUnite
Harris used the word contentment to describe some of their issues tonight. “We have to bring that same excitement from a game like yesterday to a game like today... that comes with growth, maturity, leadership.”
Brown not happy tonight: “We had poor fouls, we fouled them too much when it mattered most. You can’t just be lifted off of the floor...you have to have the discipline to be second...that’s my job to think like that. The good news is you remain the only team undefeated at home.”
There were 22 combined free throw attempts in the final 1:45 of play, but we made it to the finish line. 76ers win, 116-109, for their season-high tying fifth straight victory. They closed the game 11-14 from the line.
14-0 at home
76ers have gone 6-6 from the line - with Ben Simmons going 4-4 - since the 1:45 mark of the fourth. Big makes from the All-Star, who helps his team to 111-105 lead with 45.0 to go.
Embiid hits two late free throws. He (21 pts), Simmons (22 pts), and Harris (29 pts) all over 20 pts (as you could all certainly deduce on your own based on those statistical updates).
Sadly, Ben Simmons can not win fans a frosty
Hack-a-Ben begins with 3:07 left
Tobias Harris is creeping into all-star territory.
Harris has just been bullying these guys tonight.
Tobias Harris. Pure.
Quality quarter from a handful of 76ers, including Ben Simmons, who had two blocks and two steals in the frame. 92-82 lead going into the fourth. pic.twitter.com/kXeQ79Fvte
Tobias Harris has scored a game-high 21 points. It's the seventh time in eight games he's either reached or surpassed the 20-point mark.
Nice response by 76ers. After Pelicans briefly took a one-point lead, Harris sparks a 7-0 run that swings lead back in Sixers' favor, 77-71. NOLA takes time.
On the second night of a back-to-back, Sixers have more of an excuse than usual for looking lethargic, but after a good first quarter this has been a bad effort against a bad team

About 24 hours later, JoJo still got the mojo. Scores inside for an and-1, motions to the crowd. He's already at 10 points.
Watching Okafor attempt to guard Embiid is almost comical.

Tremendous sequence. Pelle blocks Okafor, leads to a runout jam from Simmons. Then he stuffs Ingram, which leads to a 3-pointer and foul drawn by Ennis III.

Today in inexperienced big man things, Norvel Pelle picks up two fouls in two minutes after getting first crack at backup center tonight
Smooth start for the home team, leading 18-10.
Embiid (7 pts / 2 reb) has the jumper working early, Richardson (4 pts, 2 reb) looking good.
Sixers with a JJ Redick thank you video during timeout. Gets a standing ovation from WFC.
Sixers can win their 20th game of season tonight(20-7).
2018-19 squad won their 20th(20-11) on 12/16.
Tobias starts the game on Redick.
This is a riff 🔥
