Sports Talk with Brodes: The New-Look Sixers Take Down the Clippers
Philadelphia Sixers beat the Los Angeles Clippers to improve to 25-2 on their home floor. Brett Brown made a big decision and placed Al Horford on the bench. After the game, Brown mentioned how it was handled like a true professional.Furkan Korkmaz got the start, except he couldn't find a way to produce one point.
Joel Embiid, coming off of his social media out burst the night before, had a fantastic night including a shoving match with Marcus Morris. Embiid did receive boos during the starting lineup, but he made up for it with his 26 points.
Ben Simmons recorded a triple double with 26 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists. The most impressive part of his night was the 22 field goal attempts which shows how aggressive he truly was.
Tobias Harris finished with 17 points and a filthy dunk and Josh Richardson was electric in the fourth quarter being the scoring threat the Sixers needed. Landry Shamet held the Clippers into the game scoring 19 points off the bench.
Kawhi Leonard scored 30 points, but it wasn't really a dominating night by him. You can credit the 76ers defense for making him earn every little inch on the court. Paul George REALLY struggled going 3-15 from the floor.
The Sixers head into break with more confidence than we probably expected.
