The Philadelphia Sixers woke up in the second half and beat the New York Knicks. Al Horford, Josh Richardson, and Kyle O'quinn were not available to play. Brett Brown put Matisse Thybulle and Furkan Korkmaz in the starting rotation and both did not impress. Joel Embiid was the star of the night with 27 points and 17 rebounds. James Ennis created an insane amount of spark with 20 points off the bench and he knocked down three-pointers with ease. Ben Simmons was able to get to the free throw line 10 times, but only hit five shots. That is not okay to me. Norvel Pelle made his NBA debut and he recorded multiple blocks! Mike Scott's struggles continue and Tobias Harris had a strong second half as he helped the comeback start.
