Sixers

Sixers

Clap your hands, everybody! The Philadelphia 76ers on Monday demolished the Los Angeles Lakers by a whopping 44 points.

 

The final score was 138-94, with the most notable players being Joel Embiid getting his sixth triple-double of his career and totaling 30 points, with Tyrese Maxey also getting a grab and scoring 31 points, bringing the duo to a total of 61 points overall. 

On the contrary, Lebron James scored 18 points, also setting a record for most minutes played in the NBA with a total of 66,319, breaking the record held previously by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. But, the loss also recorded the worst loss of James’ 21-year tenure, not even scoring 100 points as a team or going over 20 individually. His counterpart, Anthony Davis, who also got a jab from Sixers backup center Paul Reed who called him a “flopper” also just scored 17 points, not even scoring 20. 

So, did the word from BBall Paul affect the mojo of the Lakers, or are the Sixers just that good? Reed also commented he was just “keeping it 50 x 2”, with the Sixers also holding the Lakers to just 14 points in the 4th quarter, while they whizzed past them, scoring 40 on the king of ball himself. The Sixers also hold a seven-game win streak against the Lakers, with this game being the largest in team history against the team, but the Lakers holding their 5th worst loss in franchise history, although the Lakers still hold the all-time record against Philadelphia. The vampiric threes that the Sixers shot from the court also let them prevail against LA, with a whopping 22 three-pointers made against them. Other players, such as Patrick Beverley who was a former Laker, and Marcus Morris Sr, who played for the Clippers, another LA team, also shot from the court, with Beverley scoring 12 points and Morris scoring 16, combining 28 points off the bench.
