Sports Talk with Brodes: Sixers Stay Undefeated, Furkan Korkmaz Hits Game Winner
The Philadelphia Sixers beat the Portland Trail Blazers 129-128 in a very entertaining basketball game. The Sixers would consistently be down double digits, but would crawl back to a three or four point deficit. Portland would always respond as they knocked down 19 three-pointers and shot 56% from behind the arc. They would always respond, except for one time, the most important time. Ben Simmons went to the free throw line, down one point with 10 seconds left, and drilled BOTH with excellent form. He looked super confident in that moment after having a very so-so game. On the other end, Damian Lillard passed out to Anfernee Simons who hit a dagger three to take a two point lead. Little did everyone know, Furkan Korkmaz with .4 seconds left after Brett Brown drew up a beautiful play, would hit the game winning three point shot. WHAT A GAME! The Sixers are 5-0.
