The Philadelphia 76ers got off to a good start at home against a very good Brooklyn Nets squad as they are still dealing with everything surrounding Ben Simmons.
“The ball stopped moving,” said coach Doc Rivers. “Danny had two air-balls, that’s good shots, especially for him, and then I missed the layup, Tobias missed a floater, we could’ve moved the ball a little better the last three or four minutes. We had a first good 44 minutes moving the ball, playing with each other, and I thought in the fourth quarter, the ball kind of stuck a little bit.”
It does not help at all that Embiid is dealing with right knee soreness. The Sixers are at their best when they are able to get turnovers and push the ball in transition.
