It’s been clear sailing, as the Sixers won Game 1 in a tight contest and blew the doors open in Game 2, winning by 25.
Tobias Harris has been sensational so far, averaging 28.0 points and 7.5 rebounds in the two home games.
When he’s going, it’s a sigh of relief, as he’s the team’s second-best SCORER.
After scoring just six points in Game 1, Ben Simmons played more aggressively in Game 2, finishing with 22 points to go along with nine rebounds and eight assists. Embiid had 30 in Game 1, but just 22 in Game 2 – which is more due to the fact that the Sixers were up by so much to start the fourth quarter that Embiid and all of the other starters got an extended rest. The forward from Latvia had four triples in Game 1, but he fouled out in Game 2 when the game was well in hand anyway.
