Sixers extend road winning streak to 8 games, beat the Spurs 137-125
The Philadelphia 76ers won their eighth straight game on the road last night, beating the San Antonio Spurs 137-125.
Fresh off an All-Star snub, James Harden scored 16 points with eight assists. Embiid led the way with 33 points and 10 rebounds, but it was really the Sixers bench that provided a spark in the first half to get the Sixers moving for a win.
Tyrese Maxey from the Bench: 25 PTS, 3 REB, 4 AST
Georges Niang scored 13 and Shake Milton scored 14, all from off the bench. As a unit, the Sixers posted a season-high 67 bench points. Overall, 6-players on the Sixers scored at least 10 points which moved Philly to 13-0 on the season when at least six players score in double figures.

Side Note: Phans of Philly does it all.
Last night was their Sixers trip, “Fly the Process” as they took over 200 fans to San Antonio to the game to see former Sixers coach Brett Brown and the Spurs. It looked like one hell of a party, and after the game, they had meet ups with Brown and Daryl Morey, with court access.
If you’re lucky enough to be traveling to Arizona for the Super Bowl, make sure you reach out to Phans of Philly, who will be throwing an epic tailgate for the Chiefs-Eagles. We were out there in early October when the Birds faced the Cardinals and it was absolutely amazing.
These guys are elite and know how to throw one hell of a party.
