Sports Talk with Brodes: Sixers Beat the Raptors to Stay Perfect at Home!
The Philadelphia Sixers beat the Toronto Raptors at the Wells Fargo Center to stay undefeated at home. It was smooth sailing for the Sixers until the fourth quarter. The Raptors pressed and caused an obnoxious amount of turnovers. The 21-point lead for Philadelphia was reduced to single digits as Toronto scored 36 points in the fourth quarter. Brett Brown had to sit Joel Embiid late in the fourth because of how bad he was. He finished the game with seven turnovers. Ben Simmons put together another nice effort and stayed aggressive. He was one assist shy of a triple double. Matisse Thybulle was the star of the show scoring 20 points off the bench and knocked down five three-pointers. Oh by the way, he always recorded three steals and a block. Tobias Harris dropped 26 points and he is finding the "LA Clipper" version of himself. It was a solid win, but the ending killed a little bit of how good it should have tasted.
