Sixers Bell Ringer Season Standings:

Joel Embiid – 12
Tobias Harris – 5
Ben Simmons – 5
Shake Milton – 3
Tyrese Maxey – 1
Dakota Mathias – 1
Matisse Thybulle – 1

For the second time this week, the Sixers had a star unexpectedly sit out on game day, as Ben Simmons was scratched with a non-COVID illness. The Sixers were even hot from the outside early, knocking down 11 first-half 3s to build a 29-point lead.

However, Philadelphia caught the turnover bug in the second half, eventually turning it over 20 times for the game. While you sure would have liked to see Embiid get some extended rest after the Sixers led by 29, it was good he was out there. Although Wall went off in the second half, Matisse frustrated the Rockets point guard early in the game, a big reason why Wall only had two points in the first half.
