Off-hand action yet again! #Lebron creates distance between himself and Winslow and created a wide open lane for the easy slam! Obviously it’s not going to be this easy, but using your off hand to keep your defender away will consistently create space and open attacking lanes for you. #SwingmanBasketball

Kuz N Derrick Jones Jr. end the half with 2 big slams ✈
The Philadelphia @Sixers breeze past the @DetroitPistons.
The 76ers have quietly put themselves at 14-1 in Philadelphia this season, and they’ve done so despite the struggles in the locker room. Joel Embiid has expressed his struggles with Jimmy Butler, who went down early tonight with a groin strain. After Butler’s exit, the Pistons did come up short in their attempt to get back into the game, as the Embiid-led 76ers led by as many as 21 points in the fourth quarter. Philadelphia wins their season series over Detroit 3-1, and the Pistons have now lost their 5th straight game.
J. Embiid (PHI): 24 PTS, 8 REB, 3 AST, 2 STL, 2 BLK, 6-16 FG
L. Kennard (DET): 28 PTS, 8 REB, 3 AST, 5 TOV, 11-18 FG, 5-8 3PM
A. Drummond (DET): 21 PTS, 17 REB, 2 AST, 1 STL, 3 BLK, 8-12 FG
B. Simmons (PHI): 18 PTS, 10 REB, 7 AST, 2 STL, 1 BLK, 8-11 FG
F. Korkmaz (PHI): 18 PTS, 7 REB, 1 AST, 1 STL, 4-7 3PM
R. Jackson (DET): 15 PTS, 2 REB, 7 AST, 2 STL, 6-14 FG, 3-6 3PM
T.J. McConnell (PHI): 14 PTS, 4 REB, 6 AST, 2 STL
Philadelphia goes to 19-9, 3rd in East
Detroit falls to 13-12, 6th in East
PHI: Wednesday, Dec. 12 vs. BKN DET: Wednesday, Dec. 12 @ CHA
Sixers win 116-102! Ben was great early while Joel’s was great in the second could have went either way but Joel struggled a little in the first half. Ben had 18 points 7 assists and 10 rebounds korkmaz also played well scoring 18 setting his career high. Redick had another bad night again but wasn’t need because of korkmaz stepped up. Jimmy Butler left the game with a groin injury in the first quarter don’t know if it is serious probably not. Sixers hold the tie breaker over the Pistons so if they somehow both have the same record the Sixers will get the higher seed. #sixerswin#sixersbeatthepistons#bensimmonsplayerofthegame#sixersnation#joelembiid
We get another win over the Detroit pistons which means we went 3-1 against them this season.
Ben Simmons had a great performance whilst Furkan went off for a career high in points and rebounds.
We are now 19-9. Playing Brooklyn Nets next 🍞
The Sixers take down the Detroit Pistons (13-11) for the second game in a row to improve to 19-9! The Sixers were without Butler for most of the game as he left with a strained groin. They now move within 2 games behind the 1 seeded Toronto Raptors. Big game from Embiid coming back from his rest on Friday. Ben and Furkan also had good games with 18 each. Seven Sixers scored in double digits tonight. The Sixers face the Nets on Wednesday.

Even Joel Embiid was unhappy with his play last night, telling the press “I’ve been so trash recently. I suck.” (no joke). Will Joel rebound from his recent lackluster performances?

“I suck... I’ve been so trash...” Joel Embiid is a real one.
