Sports Talk with Brodes: Sixers Blow 21 Point Lead in the Fourth Quarter….
The Philadelphia Sixers lose their third straight as they fall to the Denver Nuggets 100-97. The Sixers were leading by 21 points and blew it in the fourth quarter. Ben Simmons was not in the lineup due to injury. This was totally unacceptable! Nikola Jokic drilled the game winning shot with one second left after great defense by the Sixers. Joel Embiid had an awful game and I expect way better out of him! Al Horford struggled big time, only shooting 3 of 12 from the field. Josh Richardson recorded three points and Mike Scott made one field goal in 19 minutes of run. Brett Brown deserves blame and so does Tobias Harris for not being aggressive enough. A couple players did alright as Trey Burke, Raul Neto, and Kyle O'Quinn did their job. Matisse Thybulle did not check in for any minutes. There were a few terrible calls made by the refs late, but that was not the reason the Sixers blew the game.
