Sixers Fall Way Short Against the Wolves on National TV

In the first career matchup between Karl-Anthony Towns and Joel Embiid, the point goes to KAT. Embiid finished with 10 points and 10 assists, while Towns had 25 and 10 with 2 blocks. Andrew Wiggins showed off as well, scoring 35 points, grabbing 10 boards, and missing only 6 of his 20 shots. The Sixers continued their 600+ day streak of not winning two games in a row. It was ugly.

But there were some bright spots. Here are some highlights (and I’m sorry but there are some real lowlights in there too):

As an added bonus, we were treated to two announcers who aren’t incredibly familiar with the Sixers. One great (Kevin Harlan) and one not (Reggie Miller). They obsessed over the fact that Embiid fell once and then Harlan offered an insane mispronunciation of Saric:

The Sixers are back at it on Saturday night against the Suns, and Sisyphus is still pushing that boulder up the hill.

    Molly Sullivan took up 1/2 the screen. Oh, but this is a TNT game and she was back in Philadelphia. Then I did get to see the first quarter. So that’s what a professionally broadcast game looks like.

    • Cut Robert Covington now! November 18, 2016 at 9:50 am

      1 – 12(0 – 7 from 3pt line) from the floor with no ability to beat his man off the dribble and piss poor defense, but yet the Sixers keep trotting out that bum Robert Covington.

    Leave it to Jim to call a rebound an assist. Re: “Embiid finished with 10 points and 10 assists,”

    You Process truthers certainly gave the nation a show tonight. The most dreadful backcourt in the NBA. An overmatched head coach going head to head against a guy that was available if this organization got its head out of its ass (but doesn’t Brett give a great press conference!!!!)

    And – oh – by the way a 4th season going down the shitter. See you at XFINITY to do bad chants in June.

      WTF are you talking about? Are you blaming the fans for the poor showing on the court last night? The organization decided they were going to tank.
      Not the fans, skippy. To be honest, I get your point, but to call out fans for “trusting the process”, is a violation.
      I’d like to hear your brilliant plan to make the Sixers a reputable club, genius….

      I feel bad for people like you who can’t see the forest through the trees. No wonder you’re miserable.

    I creamed my pants watching the highlights. Everybody, remember to start calling Carson by his new nickname: Carve.
