He’s headed back to the bench during this time out in disbelief that the defense is playing like this at the moment. – 9:03 PM Tobias Harris’ ankle is just fine. Just put the Sixers up six with 5:35 left in the third quarter. Kevin Durant frustrated with Royce O’Neale after a recent basket. Timeout Jacque Vaughn. – 9:03 PM A faint “Brooklyn” chant has broken out, as the nearly-full-strength Nets take a 1-point lead over the Sixers, who are without Embiid, Harden, and Maxey, in the middle of the third quarter. – 8:58 PM Nets have taken the lead after a flurry of transition buckets.
8 drtg (88%) claxton, no simmons 629 poss 114. 1 ortg (62%) 56. 6 eft% (83%) 111 drtg (64%) – 7:18 PM Good evening from the City of Brotherly Love. Unlilke Joan Jett, I do not expect love to be all around tonight. Ben Simmons is back in Philly facing a Embiid, Harden and Maxley-less Sixers. My gut says he’s either going to play great or let the crowd get to him. We’ll see. – 7:16 PM just when i thought this game tonight couldnt get any more overly-dramatic, TNT zooms in on Ben Simmons warming up and standing next to him is Scott Foster.
Fun half that the crowd is now very much into. Good Simmons half (9 points and 5 assists) but the Sixers are playing harder than the Brooklyn. Nets shot 59 percent from the field but the Sixers have 12 more shots. Battering them on the glass. – 8:32 PM Wow, what a defensive effort from Ben Simmons at the end of the half. Knocked the ball away then sprinted and dove to tip the loose ball up the floor for a KD dunk.
All day he’s appeared confident and ready for the moment he knew was coming. Now is his time to prove it. – 7:29 PM the nets this season (via @Ben Falk) simmons + claxton 221 poss 104. 1 ortg (6%tile) 53. 5 efg% (47%) 120. 1 drtg (7%) simmons, no *big* 405 poss 119. 3 ortg (90%) 58. 5 efg% (94%) 106.
– 7:36 PM Three fantastic passes from Ben Simmons to start the game. The confidence Simmons has shown the last three games is continuing early in this one. – 7:35 PM Simmons is predictably getting booed whenever he touches the ball, but he’s assisted on the Nets’ first three baskets. – 7:34 PM Ben Simmons got booed loudly in the introductions.
Kevin Durant has 7 and Draymond Green has 6. – 9:58 PM Final: Sixers win 115-106 to improve to 9-8. Tobias Harris had 24 and was huge in the second half. De’Anthony Melton had 22, Shake Milton 16, and Paul Reed and Georges Niang led a strong bench effort with 19 and 16, respectively. Sixers a +16 edge in o-boards tells the story. – 9:50 PM Rob Perez @WorldWideWob there is a team one quarter away from shooting a tractor beam into space please stop pretending to care about this Nets loss. – 9:50 PM Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann Sixers beat Brooklyn, 115-106. They are 9-8.
But really, they just played harder than Brooklyn all night. – 9:43 PM A terrible Nets inbounds pass goes straight to De’Anthony Melton, which leads to a Philly layup, followed by Kyrie Irving airballing a pull-up 3. Sixers lead by 14 with 3:08 left, and time is running out on the Nets. – 9:42 PM Shake Milton got that put-back layup to put the Sixers up 14 points on the team’s 19th offensive rebound. Nets have only three tonight. Five Sixers have 16 or more points.

Ben Simmons is getting heavy boos every time he touches the ball and he’s also getting into the paint with ease since Joel Embiid isn’t out there. Timeout Doc Rivers. #Sixers – 7:36 PM Nets are playing some great basketball on both ends to open this one. Getting into the teeth of the defense and feeding Nic Claxton. He’s scored 6 points already. – 7:36 PM It was much, much louder in here in March. It will be fun to see this matchup when Embiid, Harden, and Maxey are all healthy again.
