Philadelphia adds its fourth straight win at the expense of the Warriors

Philadelphia smiles: The Golden State not so much. Faced off last night in Pennsylvania, the Sixers and Warriors made it clear that they are living in defining moments. The first, with James Harden already recovered, is in a full positive streak and has won four straight. The latter, knowing they would not be able to count on Stephen Curry for several weeks, suffered their third straight defeat.

All of this was present in the Wells Fargo Center. There were two good teams and it was noticeable on the parquet floor. Steve Kerr’s boys started the better and enjoyed a close ten-point fare in the first half. It seemed that they could fight for victory, but it was a mirage. At the time of the break, Philadelphia had already tied the match and in the second half they clearly outscored their opponent until the final 118–106. Yes, unavailability of curry in jam moments is a big problem.

In the absence of a stellar base, to which Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins were added, the burden fell on Klay Thompson, however, he did not perform well. Escort finished with 12 points after signing on 4-of-17 shooting from the field, which is not expected of a player of his importance. This is how Kerr commented on the performance of his pupil. «It was a tough night for Kel. He put all his effort on the parquet, but the shots did not go through. It wasn’t his night, but he’ll be fine.”

Far better than Thompson was Jordan Poole, who signed a stat sheet of 29 points on 10-of-20 shooting from the field; As well as Donte DiVincenzo, who went an impressive 5 of 8 on triples for 17 points.

Embiid and Harden, as

When James Harden arrived on the 76ers it was something his fans had to imagine. Joel Embiid is still in MVP mode (he activated it years ago) and went up to 34 points and 13 rebounds; Harden, for his part, didn’t even miss the appointment and finished with 27 points and 9 assists. The combination of the two at this stage cannot do without translating into a number of victories for a side led by Doc Rivers.

“The most important thing is that everyone has accepted the plan. That’s the key. Everyone knows where the ball is supposed to go and where it’s going to go and nobody can get the ball in their hands. There should always be movement,” says Huh hub,
