The Philadelphia Sixers squeaked out a victory down the stretch to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-97. Joel Embiid led the way with 27 points, 16 rebounds, four assists, two blocks, and one steal. The team shot 21.2% from three going eight for 38. Tobias Harris missed 11 threes and did not connect on one. It was a really tough night shooting for him. Josh Richardson missed seven of his eight three attempts. The Sixers only turned the ball over four times in the first half, but ended with too many which is a common theme for this team. Ben Simmons returned to the lineup and he clearly was a difference maker. Down the wire, he defended Kevin Love in the post and beat him on a jump ball which most point guards can not do! To win the game, Brett Brown dialed up a beautiful play which resulted with Joel Embiid getting a bucket down low. The Sixers did need to hold their breath as Kevin Love had a chance from three to tie the game with a good look, but he hit iron.
