Home Cooking Just What the Doctor Ordered for Sixers

The Philadelphia 76ers (24-14) returned to the friendly confines of the Wells Fargo to attempt to build on their 16-2 home record against the streaking, Oklahoma City Thunder (20-16).

The home team snapped a four-game losing streak with a 120-113 victory on a cold Monday evening.

An ugly injury to Joel Embiid in the first quarter brought a hush to the Philadelphia faithful.

Embiid dislocated his finger but, returned to lead the Sixers with an 18 point night.

Balanced Philadelphia scoring was the difference in ending the losing streak.

Ben Simmons added his usual double with a 17 point 15 board game and two guys who Coach Brett Brown will need to step up, did just that when Tobias Harris rebounded from a not so good game to knock down 18 points and Al Horford threw down 13.

Josh Richardson was impressive with a team-high 23 points
