The Philadelphia 76ers paid a visit to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday looking to extend their 3-game winning streak as they began a 3-game road trip. Both teams were a bit short-handed with the Sixers missing James Harden and Tyrese Maxey and the Cavs missing All-Star Jarrett Allen and key bench piece Kevin Love.
In the end, the Cavaliers used a huge second quarter to run over the Sixers 113-85. Cleveland scored 44 points in the second frame and they shot a ridiculous 16-for-17 in the second 12-minute frame. Philadelphia just had a tough time getting stops even with Joel Embiid in the lineup and protecting the rim.
Embiid had 19 points, six rebounds, and six assists on the night as it was a tough contest overall for the Sixers. NBA Twitter had their best reactions to the Cavaliers pummeling Philadelphia on their home floor.
