Sports Talk with Brodes: Sixers Take Down the Celtics Without Joel Embiid!
The Philadelphia Sixers beat the Boston Celtics by a score of 109-98. For all of the Brett Brown haters, he is now 3-0 against Brad Stevens this season. I assume those same haters believe Stevens is a great coach in this league. Oh by the way, this was without Joel Embiid as we learned he is going to need surgery on his dislocated finger. Al Horford was awesome and stepped up against his former team. He had 17 points, eight rebounds, and six assists. Ben Simmons was tremendous and he was being utilized as the screen once again! It is VERY beneficial to this team. Josh Richardson scored 29 points and recorded seven assists as well. Norvell Pelle created a ton of energy with his rim protection and Furkan Korkmaz even hit a couple big shots in the fourth quarter. The defense effected the Celtics big time. Jayson Tatum shot 4-13, Jaylen Brown shot 2-12. and Gordan Hayward went 4-11 from the field. Kemba Walker dropped 26.
