The Sixers’ two cornerstone stars were both out for the team’s Saturday afternoon matinee, and it’s safe to say the supporting cast did not rally in the absence of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. After the Sixers had managed to cut Milwaukee’s lead to just one midway through the third quarter, the Bucks went on a 29-5 run, putting the game well out of reach. Some questionable officiating certainly didn’t help, but the Sixers weren’t nearly up to the challenge of overcoming their dynamic duo being sidelined.
