Dan Savage @Dan_Savage End 1Q: 76ers 25, Magic 21 Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid has 20 pts* & 5 rebs Orlando led by Mo Bamba with 8 pts & 3 rebs *that’s not a typo – 7:37 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell Sixers 25, Magic 21 at the end of the first. Embiid has 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting and 5 boards. Magic made just 7 of 24 shots and turned the ball over 5 times, but have a 16-10 rebounding edge. – 7:36 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA The 76ers lead the Magic 22-20 late in the first quarter. Joel Embiid has 20 by himself. We’re on pace to have a competitive game between Embiid and the Magic, maybe not any other Sixers. – 7:31 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann Nor sure I’ve seen anything like this. With 1:21 in the first quarter, Joel Embiid has 20 points on 8-10 shooting. It has looked effortless. His teammates are 1-9 from the field, the only bucket was due to Embiid’s gravity, and a lot of the misses have been comically off. – 7:30 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers Joel Embiid has been an early one-man show. The #Sixers center has scored 11 of his team’s 13 points on 5-6 shooting. His teammates are shooting 1-for-7. The Sixers lead the #Magic, 13-12, with 5:34 left in the first quarter. – 7:22 PM
Jon Johnson @jonjohnsonwip There’s not a Sixers fan who doesn’t like Matisse Thybulle, but you have to give up something in order to get something. No one outside of Embiid should be “untouchable” if the offer is right. Wasting a window. – 6:57 PM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball both will stay back in Chicago to receive treatment during Bulls’ upcoming road trip, per Billy Donovan Stops in Milwaukee (Friday), Orlando (Sunday) and OKC (Monday) before looping back home – 6:34 PM
Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA Wendell Carter Jr. will not play tonight at Philadelphia due to a sore left hamstring, the team announced. It is his seventh straight game missed with the injury. – 6:03 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick Shake Milton said his back has been doing better and that he’s hoping to return soon — has a target date in mind but didn’t share it. He said he had spasms and tightness in the days following the injury. Recently has progressed to light, solo on-court work. – 6:01 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin Cole Anthony, Jalen Suggs, Gary Harris, Franz Wagner, and Mo Bamba will start for the Magic tonight – 5:41 PM
Dan Savage @Dan_Savage The @Orlando Magic will start Cole Anthony, Jalen Suggs, Gary Harris, Franz Wagner and Mo Bamba for their road game against the @Sixers tonight. Wendell Carter Jr. (sore left hamstring) is close to return, but unlikely to play tonight. – 5:41 PM
Khobi Price @khobi_price Acting Magic head coach Jesse Mermuys says Wendell Carter remains a gametime decision. Says Carter got work today. “He’s day-to-day, but not sure about tonight. He’s very close. If he doesn’t play tonight, he’ll play very soon.” – 5:35 PM
Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA Talked about this on the last @RedNationHoops: I think people should be open to the idea of Houston pursuing Ben Simmons and/or other star players at the deadline. Rebuilds are about trying to acquire cornerstone players. The draft is simply one avenue to try and achieve that. – 1:15 PM
