Sports Talk with Brodes: Furkan Korkmaz Scores 31 Points in Win Against the Bulls
Philadelphia Sixers beat the Chicago Bulls by a score of 118-111 to improve to 24-2 at the Wells Fargo Center. It wasn't a pretty performance by the 76ers, but they turned it on in the fourth quarter scoring 35 points. Furkan Korkmaz dropped 31 points and he continues to stay red hot. I wonder if this has anything to do with him understanding Elton Brand made moves for shooters at the trade deadline. Joel Embiid recorded 28 points and after a dagger three, he celebrated by putting his finger to his mouth making a "shhhh" gesture. After the game, Embiid said he was just talking to himself and holds himself to a higher standard. Ben Simmons had another triple double on the season with 19 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. Al Horford scored zero points. You read that correctly. Glenn Robinson III made an impact off the bench, but Alec Burks did not play.
