Shorthanded Sixers don’t want to hear any excuses after loss to Hawks

USA Today


Article Summary:

The Philadelphia 76ers entered another game where they were severely shorthanded due to the league’s health and safety protocols keeping guys like Tobias Harris, Shake Milton, and Matisse Thybulle out right now due to contact tracing.

It’s unfortunate because the Sixers are in a tough stretch right now in the schedule where they are playing plenty of games in a short amount of time, but the Sixers did not want to hear any of that. “All of our starters are out and no one’s gonna feel sorry for us. We got to try to win these games.”

Rookie Tyrese Maxey received another start and had 15 points and six rebounds following up his 39 points he scored against Denver. “It’s the NBA, stuff happens. I talked about it last game, you have to go through adversity and Coach Doc said something that’s gonna stick with us. No one feels sorry for us. You think the Hawks or the Nuggets feel bad? No one feels sorry. We’ve got to figure out a way to try to win some of these games while we’re down.”

It is unfortunate given the situation right now, but the Sixers have to regroup and keep pushing forward.
