Article Summary:

Let’s discuss what happened in the eyes of the Sixers on Friday:

Sixers get sloppy after 24-point lead

The lead was 68-44 in favor of the Sixers with 7:39 to go in the third quarter. Philadelphia did not score until the 4:31 mark of the quarter and the Clippers had chipped away at the lead. The Sixers committed a slew of turnovers and took some bad shots.

Turnovers

The Sixers only committed two turnovers in the fourth quarter and two in the third, but the lack of focus was a big factor for Philadelphia as the Clippers scored off their turnovers and had 11 fastbreak points. You gotta keep playing solid, keep playing the right way, and keep sharing the ball and doing things that got us that lead.

Was human nature a factor?

It can be human nature at times for a team to let their guard down a bit when building a huge lead. Philadelphia was cruising all night and when they were up by 24, it didn’t look like the Clippers would be able to rally and pull it off without George and Leonard.
