Sports Talk with Brodes: Sixers Snap 4 Game Losing Skid against OKC
The Philadelphia Sixers snap their four game losing streak by beating the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Wells Fargo Center. Joel Embiid dislocated his finger, but returned to the game and had 18 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists. Ben Simmons was rock solid as he provided 15 rebounds on top of his 17 points and eight assists. Brett Brown is using him as the screener with Josh Richardson again and it is clearly working. Richardson scored 23 points and was effective. Al Horford scored in double digits which is what this team needs and Mike Scott hit a couple three-pointers in the fourth quarter! Trey Burke had a decent run off the bench. It was a very solid win as Brown was looking for the guys to "hunt threes" and they sure did. The Sixers finished shooting 50% from behind the arc.
