- The first-place Sixers looking for a bounce back, coming off an overtime loss to Cleveland on Saturday. Let's pick this one up in the second. It was a 1-point game after the first. But here come the Sixers.
Shake Milton coming off the bench, and he was tremendous. Then Furkan Korkmaz-- the corner 3-ball. How about Korkmaz again? Another. 3 of his 19 in the game. Then Shake Milton-- there's nothing Myles Turner could do with that. Milton had 26 points off the bench. It was 54-42, home team.
Embiid-- look at the big fella with the handle. Then Embiid, from the outside, showing off against the Defensive Player of the Year candidate, Myles Turner. Embiid saying, give me the MVP. It was 72-55 after one.
Third quarter, even while he's fumbling it there, Embiid still was able to get it going. Take a look at Philadelphia in cruise control. Embiid had 24 and 13 in the game with five assists.
Loose ball here, everyone hitting the deck for it. Ben Simmons showing the hustle there. Look at this. Ben Simmons knocks out Doug McDermott's tooth. Is there a dentist available?
On the break, Seth Curry to Simmons. Then on the break, Simmons takes it all the way himself for a little finger roll, 2 of his 18. Philly wins it going away, 130 to 114. Sixers put up a season-high 67 bench points. And they improved to 15 and 3 at home. Fourth straight loss for the Pacers.
