Even without the entire roster available on game nights, the Sixers found ways to win. Despite having just eight players available and being forced to recall two G League affiliate members, the Sixers found a way to grind out a victory on the road on Saturday night as they put Chicago away 114-105.
With that win, the Sixers pick up their sixth-straight victory and advance to 8-2 on the year while issuing the Bulls their third loss of the season.
The veteran guard has seen his minutes increase a lot over the last two games as his restriction has been lifted, and the Sixers have seen their fair share of players deal with injuries or get entered into the health and safety protocol. His nickname is Bball Paul, and that will probably never change as long as he’s on the Sixers but on Saturday night, he was “Putback Paul.” The second-year forward took advantage of a lot of second-chance opportunities and scored himself ten points.
