Philadelphia 76ers come into the game playing with a little chip on their shoulder after winning for three straight games. Beating on Thursday night getting big-time help from everyone. Furkan Korkmaz earned his minutes after the display he put on. Tobias Harris was aggressive to start in the first. Joel Embiid tearing up the paint.
The 76ers collectively as the team played well as a team. For the Phoenix Suns, they were missing two of their key players Devin Booker and Bradley Beal. Phoenix Suns were looking for someone to step up after losing twice to the San Antonio Spurs. Kevin Durant doing all he can do. He went for 31 points and 7 defensive rebounds however that wasn’t good enough. When the 76ers had 3 out of their starting 5, they put up a combined 73 points.
Big Day for the Birthday Boy
Tyreese Maxing is having a nice game on his 23rd birthday. Tyreese Maxey had 24 points and 10 assists. Now, with Tyreese Maxey being a huge part of the offense, he draws a lot of double team coverages which then he can find the open teammate on the three-point line, in the paint, or underneath for alley-op play and if he can’t find the open teammate then he’ll I’ll take the ball to the rack just being complete fearless even with the double team coverages.
Tyreese Maxey was able to create spacing and create his shot. Pulling up and hitting the 3. Tyreese Maxey was all over the floor running the defense. Watching what the Suns wanted to do with the ball and countering punching what offensive game plan that Frank Vogel (Suns head coach) and the Suns wanted to do.
Team Work Makes the Dream Work
The 76ers played very well yesterday. Too open up the game. The 76ers would rotate running the ball to the rim. The bench could have been better offensively however the starting 5 did a great job setting screens, playing 2-3 defense, and making adjustments to man coverage. Other than Kevin Durant scoring the rest of the Sun’s offense didn’t have more than 14pts on the score sheet. The 76ers would kick off the third quarter, finding each other wide-open on the perimeter.
Tobias Harris in the second half played against Kevin Durant and Tobias Harris showed no intimation. He took the rock right to him. Worked KD in the paint. causing Kevin Durant problems in the paint. Tobias Harris just turned it up on another level!
