Philadelphia 76ers snap three-game winning streak, lose to the Cavaliers 113-85
The Philadelphia 76ers’ three-game winning streak was snapped last night by the Cavaliers in blowout fashion, losing 113-85.
The Cavs took advantage of sloppy Sixers’ turnovers and shot a very impressive 60.8% from the floor, knocking down 15 three pointers.
In the second quarter alone, the Cavaliers went 16-for-17 from the floor. It’s hard to beat any team who does that.
The Only Thing Worse Than The 76ers Were My Parlays
Let’s just get this all out of the way now. On Twitter, I posted three different parlays last night before the game all of which were focused around the 76ers and NONE of them hit.
For whatever reason, when you post losing parlays and none hit, people on Twitter like to make fun of you? I guess I’m the only one in the world that chases +16005 parlays where you bet $10 and try to win $1,610.53 but end up losing, so maybe I deserve all the criticism as if getting destroyed by the Cavaliers wasn’t enough already.
Here are the losing bets for you rats to enjoy. Apparently there is no God in Cleveland.
76ers Couldn’t Buy A Bucket
As a team, the Sixers shot a miserable 41.6% from the floor and only 6-for-26 (23.1%) from three point range.
Joel Embiid led the way shooting 6-for-16 from the floor, scoring 19 total points while bringing in six rebounds and added six assists and two steals to his stat sheet for the night.
Outside of Embiid, Milton was the only other Sixers player to score in double figures with 14 points.
Needless to say, it was just a very bad night for the Sixers and a less than ideal way to begin a three game road trip.
Tobias Harris played 23 minutes and went 0-for-7 from the floor before exiting the game with an illness.
The Sixers will play in Memphis tomorrow night against the Grizzlies. They are now 12-10 on the season and 5-5 on the road.
We’ll keep you posted on Tobias Harris status for tomorrow night and in case you missed it, James Harden is targeting a Monday return against the Houston Rockets.
Welcome to December.
