PHILADELPHIA – – Tobias Harris had 22 points and 11 rebounds, Joel Embiid added 19 points and the Philadelphia 76ers routed the Atlanta Hawks 122-94 Saturday night.
Philadelphia carried a 60-36 advantage over the Hawks in the paint while outscoring Atlanta by a 34-14 margin on fast-break points.
“We kept moving the ball and the paint points came from just moving the ball and eventually shots will fall,” Sixers coach Doc Rivers said. Simmons is currently out for “Personal reasons” after holding out for a trade and being suspended for conduct detrimental to the team prior to the Sixers opener on Oct. 20.
“I stay out of it,” Rivers said.
