The Sixers dropped their 16th straight road game to Toronto, going over seven minutes of the fourth quarter without making a field goal to watch a perfectly winnable game slip through their fingers.
Ben Simmons: 28 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, 1 turnover
After missing a pair of games with the flu, Ben Simmons didn’t miss a beat from his career-high 42 points against Utah. Simmons would finish the game a sparkling 9-of-11 from the field and 10-of-14 from the foul line, those 14 attempts tying Joel Embiid for game-high honors. Embiid scored seven points in the last two and a half minutes of the game as part of a failed last gasp of a comeback.
