The Philadelphia 76ers (23-12) dripped a 117-116 Overtime decision to the Miami Heat (24-8) on Saturday evening in Florida.
Despite Joel Embiid put up a double-double with 35 points and 11 rebounds, Philadelphia exhibited a lack of intensity and were sleepwalking thru portions of the contest.
In what can only be deemed a bad game, the Sixers were their own worst enemy.
A missed slam dunk and a questionable three-point shot as the Overtime expired when a two would have won the game.
Coach Brett Brown publicly mentioned that “this team will find itself by Christmas”.
Christmas has come and gone and the club is still looking for its persona.
