Sports Talk with Brodes: Furkan Korkmaz EXPLODES in Dominating Win over Memphis
The Philadelphia Sixers stop the bleeding by beating the Memphis Grizzlies at the Wells Fargo Center and this was very much needed after they lost four straight on the road. The player of the game was Furkan Korkmaz as he dropped 34 points and hit seven three-pointers! Ben Simmons was dominate as well scoring 22 points and dishing out 10 assists. He was also very effective defensively and held Ja Morant to very low numbers. The Grizzlies looked overwhelmed by the length of the 76ers and could not find rhythm or get comfortable offensively. Al Horford and Brett Brown heard boos from the crowd during the starting lineup. Joel Embiid did not return to the game with neck stiffness after the first half so that's something to keep an eye on. Josh Richardson made his return to the lineup, but only played 15 minutes off the bench.
