The 76ers keep piling on wins.
They had another balanced attack en route to improving to an NBA-best 6-1. This also enabled them to post their 13th consecutive victory over the Charlotte Hornets.
This goes to Tobias Harris for the second straight game. The Sixers power forward scored a game-high 24 points on 10-for-16 shooting to go with five rebounds and two assists before sitting out the fourth quarter. Eleven of his points came in the third quarter. He scored nine straight on a layup, a dunk, a three-pointer, and a jumper. Then after a layup by Danny Green, Harris scored on a dunk to put the Sixers up, 82-66, with 1 minute, 31 seconds left in the quarter. He also finished with a game-best plus-24.
I gave this to Bismack Biyombo. The Hornets center shot 2-for-7 and scored four points. He also had three turnovers and graded out at a minus-20.
Joel Embiid gets this one. The Sixers center finished with a game-high three blocks to go with two steals despite sitting out the fourth quarter.
I had to give this to the Sixers’ foul shooting. They made just 15 of 23 free throws (65.2%).
This goes to the Sixers’ grabbing a season-high 55 rebounds to go with 34 assists. This marked their 22nd consecutive victory when they’ve had at least 50 rebounds and 30 assists.
