Philadelphia has put the cruiser rhythm on. After a start to the season with lights and shadows, the boys of Doc Rivers added their seventh consecutive victory last night in Houston, which places them in fifth place in the Eastern Conference with 23-16.
It was an easy game for Pennsylvania. Supported by a Joel Embiid who went up to 31 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists in 26 minutes, the 76ers had no problem defeating the Rockets. In the second quarter they were up 20 points. From that moment they handled the rent without problems and even shot it up to 27 points.
“Just before this streak started, I said this team was about to get going. You could feel it. Our guys finally found a way to play no matter who is on the court. It’s also good that our best player is dominating the game right now, ”says the Sixers head coach of Embiid.
