“There are a lot of steps to get there. But we have everything we need to make it happen.”
The Sixers are currently second in the East, a game behind Brooklyn and 2 1/2 games ahead of third-place Milwaukee with 10 games to play. “Especially against a great team like Philly that was ready to go. But I feel like we could have competed harder out there.”
Ben Simmons, who was limited to 15 minutes by foul trouble and the game’s lopsided nature, scored eight points and dished out six assists.
Philadelphia’s starters didn’t play a lot of time in the second half for the second straight game after building up big leads. Embiid has missed 19 games and has been bothered by a sore shoulder in recent days.
