Sports Talk with Brodes: Sixers Win Ugly vs the Nuggets, But It’s a Win!
The Philadelphia Sixers beat the Denver Nuggets by a score of 97-92. The offense struggled in the fourth quarter once again. They only recorded 14 points and they went scoreless from 4:09 to 15.3 seconds left in the game. Their defense only allowed the Nuggets to score four points in that time. The Sixers defense clearly played a factor as they locked down at times, but there is no denying the offense is ugly. Ben Simmons had a frustrating night where he was not aggressive. Joel Embiid had 22 points, but he was -8 and he mentioned how it's tough being a closer. I want to see Tobias Harris be the closer. Mattise Thybulle was unbelievable as he went +20 in 26 minutes and dropped 13 points off the bench. He is something else! Josh Richardson finally returned to the lineup and he was clearly off.
