Their only offense was coming from Harris and Joel Embiid as the rest of the team could not throw a rock in the ocean. “My favorite play of the night had nothing to do with Tobias other than we’re bringing the ball down, Tobias ran and grabbed the ball from Ben, and told us to throw the ball in the post. Like he demanded that we post.”
It was that play that Rivers loved the most. He had nine points in the third quarter and then six in the fourth when the team really needed it. “Whenever you have somebody going, you want to keep feeding them, and going with that momentum. He was great for us, and Joel also was dominant so those two guys together had great offensive games and then defensively as a team, we really stepped up.”
The Sixers move on to face the Orlando Magic on the road on Thursday to close the 2020 portion of their schedule.
