Philadelphia snaps long-standing win against Lakers

Just when the Lakers were getting up… there have been three straight losses. that’s how it is. The towering efforts of LeBron James, who scored 35 points while holding down 76ers last night, have served to give hope to Los Angeles Parish, but for now it looks like you can’t break that dream of a wish. Finds who hit them in the loss against Philadelphia (three in a row) by one point: 112-113.

Beyond the fact that the Sixers were the ones who ended up smiling (and celebrating), the truth is that was a spectacular game in which emotion ran relentlessly through the park; So much so that no team’s income exceeded eight figures. With such equanimity, the final quarter was one continuous transaction in which the visitors emerged victorious by the tiniest of details, a basket. Joel Embiid, who had given up 35 points, put his team ahead by four points with 45 seconds remaining, but a triple by Troy Brown Jr. tightened the score again. The center missed the next possession; However, the Lakers were unable to take advantage, as Russell Westbrook was stopped on his drive to the basket. That’s where it all ended, with a fourth consecutive win for the Experimentalians as the visitors.

“It’s disappointing to be in that position at the end of the game and not be able to come out with a win. We managed to stop them, we gave ourselves chances to win and didn’t do as well as we should have… Playing good basketball. We’re not winning just by winning games”, lamented LeBron, who sees the Lakers now 13th in the Western Conference at 19–24; yeah just a game and a half play-in And two and a half playoffs.

The best accompaniment for El Rey came from Russell Westbrook. Despite missing the final shot, the veteran point guard finished with a triple-double of 20 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists, which he got off the bench. After the match, Russ claimed that Embiid was missing in the decisive game.

“He held my wrist. He couldn’t raise his hand to throw. He couldn’t pick up the ball. It’s frustrating, but I know the game wasn’t limited to that,” he comments in a statement that Embiid didn’t quite agree with that; The center pointed out that it was only a physical game between the two teams and that Westbrook was unlucky because he missed the ball.

sixers tired

That’s how Doctor Rivers saw them. After the meeting is over, the head coach Philadelphia insisted that, watching the game from the sidelines, he was looking forward to the final quarter with options to win. “It wasn’t one of our best games, especially defensively. We had no rhythm. We were tired. As a coach, you’re thinking: ‘We’re going into the fourth quarter and Will see if we can win it.

To win, the 76ers once again contributed James Harden, who this time signed a double-double of 24 points and 13 assists. Tyrese Maxi also tried to push for the win, scoring 16 points off the bench.
