Article Summary:

“Obviously, with Joel out, we needed to find a lot of energy from different guys and I thought we got that energy from guys like Matisse, Furk, Tyrese, Dwight came in and he was a beast on the boards and being able to control the paint. We know that there’s going to be games where we don’t have Joel and we have to figure it out, find a way.”

Games like this will serve them well come playoff time. The Sixers will have to be able to show off that resiliency when the time comes and a game like Sunday will be able to help them in the future. “You’ve seen it several times now, fourth-quarter comebacks, fourth-quarter execution down the stretch of games, we have a long way to go, but just to grow for this team down the stretch of games, that’s where you’re gonna win playoff games and our guys are starting to believe they can run stuff down the stretch of games. They can get to shot they want, they can get stops, and when you start feeling like that, you start winning close games, and we’re starting to do that.”

When the playoffs do roll around, the Sixers will most likely have Embiid out there, but a game like Sunday shows that they can be more than just the big fella if they can put their minds to it.

“I thought this was a great game for us to really do that and to really look each other in the eye and know that we can hold each other accountable out there on the floor,” finished Harris.
