The Philadelphia 76ers already knew they would lose two starters en route to Saturday’s matchup against the Sacramento Kings. They then found out just before the tip that they were going to lose a third starter.
Ben Simmons joined Joel Embiid and Seth Curry on the sidelines and it seemed like the Sixers were going to be in trouble against a hot Kings team devices. Instead, Philadelphia led wire to wire and blew Sacramento 129-105.
Tobias Harris rose to lead with 29 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, Shake Milton had 28, Danny Green gave up early with his game at both ends Tone on and he had 18 points, Tony Bradley added 14 and eight rebounds. and Dwight Howard added 10 and 13 rebounds.
This is something to watch out for for the remainder of the season with this team on the offensive end of the floor. If the team can get into the paint, the Sixers get caught in a river and can then get simple baskets. Their ball movement comes from penetrating the paint and getting simple baskets that way and then being able to attract the defense and lead them to more open looks from the perimeter. There have been many times that Harris and Green have both gotten into the paint, and then Tony Bradley benefited from the bucket dispensing passes. This then resulted in Green and Furkan Korkmaz being able to find open views from the depths as Sacramento had to watch out for other areas of defense. For Philadelphia to be offensively successful, this must be cause for concern every night.
Predictably, the Sixers Matisse Thybulle had Kings Guard De’Aaron Fox defend and he made his life miserable. Fox could not invade the paint for anything and it created many problems for Sacramento’s offenses. Thybulle’s length and defensive drive remain impressive, and after closing it in the fourth quarter on his victory in Sacramento in February, he did the same on Saturday night. He had a block from behind on Fox that made him dazed and confused, and it shows what impact he can have on the ground at that end. In other areas of his game, Thybulle attacked the glass and pulled down seven rebounds, which is a great help to Embiid, and he also cast more frank looks from below. The insult to Thybulle is as big a deal as it has been repeated in the past. The team gets an extra bonus every time they get some big hits.
The Sixers entered this game with short hands and one would assume it would be Harris leading the way from the jump. Instead, Green did an excellent job from the start to be a leader. He was able to get some open threesomes that helped him get into a groove on the offensive end of the floor and then he could get his hands on some passes defensively and get the team out and run. Its 11 points in the first quarter set the tone for the team to take it from the start. As a three-ring veteran, Green is one of the most respected veterans on the team. He’s bringing it to both ends of the floor and will be a very important member of that team as the season progresses. These types of performances will be necessary in the future.
