The East Illuminates! Sixers win in New York and it’s 8 in a row

It would have been enough, with some 20,000 fans in the stands at Madison Square Garden watching, pressing on, with just their eyes, sometimes pointing at Harden or at Joel Embiid himself; It would have been enough, it really was enough, by the last quarter, the Knicks had won, but Tom Thibodeau’s boys again fell short of victory.

It was the same script, before this Sunday’s game, the same script, where the Knicks play 3 extraordinary quarters, but in the end, in that last quarter, they fall apart and lose, looking like they got run out In the air, without ideas and against Philadelphia they experienced an experience similar to what they had experienced against Chicago a few days earlier, when they lost 118–117 with a winning basket by DeMar DeRozan two seconds from the end. .

DeRozan wasn’t there, but still, the Pennsylvania team arrived in New York looking to avoid a loss and therefore extend their winning streak to seven games and they did, they won eight and so were Embiid, Harden and the same. Kind of, in his own way, with his own style, power forward George Niang, one of the Sixers’ sensations in the current course, spoke from long range with four triples in that fourth quarter.

Everything worked out for the visitors, Embiid found himself as the game progressed and the number of times he was billed this season for no less than 35 points, being carried by James Harden with his usual class. who added a double-double of 29 cards and 13 assists.


It was 21–4, thus ending the set, he withered, as reported by ESPN, buzzing as if it were a boxing right hand; On the one hand, a big team, the Sixers, on the other hand a very small, mediocre one, which has nothing to do with the first three quarters; After that there was nothing, neither Randle, nor Barrett, nor Brunson, nothing, it was like a ghost team on the court.

Philadelphia won, 119–112, winning their eighth consecutive game and with a 20–12 record they anchored fifth place in the East, leaving the battle for those positions red hot; With the result they are only 3 games away from the first place Boston Celtics.
