The Jekyll and Hyde Sixers (33-21) did something unusual…. NOT!
A home court win over the hapless and depleted Chicago Bulls (19-35) to improve the Philadelphia record at the Wells Fargo Center to 14-2.
Furkan Korkmaz led the charge for the Philly boys with a 31 point game and the guys everyone is counting on, Joel Embiid (28 points, 12 boards) and the fifth triple-double of the season from the maligned, Ben Simmons (19 points, 10 assist and 10 rebounds) led the charge for the Sixers who need to find their identity… like, last week.
Tobias Harris chipped in a 14 point game and newly acquired Glenn Robinson made his presence felt with 10 points.
Philly shot 42 of 84 from the floor and the three-point game has shown improvement at a 12 for 32 clip.
Chicago fought to finish with Zach LaVine nailing a game-high 32 trailed closely with 25 from Luke Kornat, Cristiano Felicio with 13 and a double-double from former Sixer, Thaddeus Young who accumulated 10 points and 10 boards.
