new balance


The Philadelphia 76ers entered Gianbridge Fieldhouse on Saturday night looking to continue their winning ways. They found out shortly before the game that they would have to grind out a win over the Indiana Pacers while missing James Harden and PJ Tucker who are obviously important to their success.

The Sixers were able to do so easily as they knocked off the Pacers 141-121 and they led by as many as 24. Joel Embiid also made history on the night as he had 31 points on 10-for-15 shooting, seven rebounds, and seven assists. It was the ninth straight game Embiid has scored 30+ points which is a new franchise record. He broke a tie with Allen Iverson and Wilt Chamberlain in franchise history.
