“We didn’t come into play,” said Rivers. “What I saw was it was one of those games. We played last night I guess and it was disappointing. You got three of their top five players out and we have a couple of guys out too, obviously, but that’s an extremely winnable game, doesn’t matter where you’re playing.”
The Sixers have had issues on the road in the past. “It’s the NBA. It was a back-to-back, but guys in the NBA can play. If you don’t come out and you’re not on top of your game, you’re not ready to go, you’re not mentally locked in, you can get beat by anybody. I think it was more so that than anything else.”
On the Brooklyn side, Harris had 28 points off the bench and LeVert had 22, 10 assists, and seven rebounds.
“It’s a different situation but no Kyrie, no KD, but those guys on the court are professional basketball players and they’re very good,” said rookie Tyrese Maxey.
