Philadelphia: As the entire nation gets ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Philadelphia 76ers looked to rebound from their bad loss to Toronto on Monday night as the Sixers took on the Sacramento Kings from the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia Wednesday night.
The Sixers would get off to a good start as Joel Embiid would score the Sixers first 4 points and the kings were already thinking that this was going to be a long night if Embiid has it going. Sixers would take a 25-18 lead at the end of the first quarter. Int eh second quarter, the Kings would get back in the game as they got the game tied on two separate times with the last being 44-44 with 26.1 left & the Sixers would hit a buzzer-beater by Raul Neto to give the Sixers the 47-46 lead.
In the third quarter, the Sixers would announce that Josh Richardson would not return to the game
Later on, in the third quarter, Sixers Ben Simmons would do his best Carson Wentz impersonation as he threw a nice pass to Matisse Thybulle for the Dunk
Simmons to Thybulle
The Kings would go on a run down the stretch but the Sixers defense would make the stops as they needed & Joel Embiid kept doing what he started as the Sixers hold on for 97-91 win & now the Sixers are 8-0 at home this season. With the win, the Sixers are now 12-6 on the season while the Kings are 7-10.
Update: Sixers say Josh Richardson will be re-evaluated before the next game which is Friday at Knicks
