Sixers host Jazz after tough loss to Warriors

Sixers host Jazz after tough loss to Warriors

Falling two rebounds shy against Golden State (23 points with eight rebounds and 12 assists) shows Simmons is quickly becoming one of the league's most risky players, and it's scary to think he's only 15 games into what seems like is going to be a very exciting career for the former LSU star. "You can't just be playing for 24 minutes".

Perhaps the 76ers and Embiid will be the team the Warriors have to contend with in June at in the coming seasons.

Kerr called a pair of timeouts minutes apart in the first half.

Philadelphia sank just one of seven 3-pointers and committed seven turnovers in the quarter.

Between Stephen Curry dropping 35 points on 11 of 22 shooting to Kevin Durant contributing 27 points of his own, Philadelphia went into Saturday's game with the mindset that it would be almost impossible to contain this high-powered offense of the Warriors. Sixers G Jerryd Bayless returned after missing the previous six games with a bruised left wrist.

Embiid, Simmons and the rest of the young Sixers left an impression on the Warriors. In the event that Embiid is ultimately held out, Philadelphia could be shorthanded up front, as Richaun Holmes (illness) is also listed as questionable. The second one came after the play he designed wasn't run the way he drew it up.

The Sixers continue to be without rookie guard Markelle Fultz, the first overall pick in this year's draft. Sure, Tatum has been great for the Celtics, especially after the Gordon Hayward injury, but Simmons has been putting up record-breaking numbers all year and he's done it all without a consistent jump shot.




At this point in the season, Simmons leads all rookies in scoring (18.1 ppg), rebounds (9.1 rpg), assists (8.0 apg), minutes (34.9 mpg) and double-double's (10).

The second half was a surprise because of how well the 76ers had played in the first half.

At 15-2, Boston leads the National Basketball Association and has matched the best start in franchise history through 17 games. The Utah Jazz are shooting 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 83.5 percent from the free throw line. "He's a good offensive player and can do a lot of things". In its November 11 rout of Philadelphia at Oracle Arena, Golden State scored 135 points on 58.5 percent shooting from the field (14-for-27 from three-point range).

It isn't just the deep-shooting front court that concerns the Jazz. "We just have to stay together as a team".

Three seasons later, he averaged a.367 three-point percentage on almost 100 shots, showcasing the athletic ability that was identified at a young age.

Utah's Derrick Favors is preparing to take on Embiid, if the Sixers star center plays.
