So the Sixers looked how we wanted them to look on Tuesday: dominant.

Ben Simmons recorded a triple-double with two and a half minutes left in the third quarter while Joel Embiid racked up 30 points in a 127-108 win over the Chicago Bulls in their home opener.

The Bulls put up a good fight in the first half, but the team went on a 17-0 run in the third quarter to run away with the victory. Embiid and Dario Saric (however you pronounce his name) recorded double-doubles in the win, while rookie Landry Shamet scored 12 points on 4-for-7 shooting, all from three.

But the biggest story of the night was probably Markelle Fultz. He scored 12 points, which was good, but on 5-of-15 shooting. It was mainly garbage time, but the Sixers fans gave him so much confidence in the game. He also hit his first 3:

Maybe that will help later in the season. The form does look better, but maybe more reps will mean a much more improved Fultz.

Up next is a Saturday night tilt against the Magic at home. Tip-off is at 7:30 PM on NBC Sports Philadelphia.

The Roundup:

The Flyers also played last night, but lost to the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-3. Travis Konecny, Sean Couturier, and Oskar Lindblom were the Flyers goal scorers.

The team led 2-1 after one, but the Blue Jackets went on a three-goal outburst, including two from Cam Atkinson, to pretty much seal the deal.

Anthony Duclair may have provided us with an early goal of the year nominee in the first period:

Later on in the game, Christian Folin couldn’t skate.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s Roundup, Douglas lost his grandmother but should be good to go for Sunday.

Isaac Seumalo is starting to settle in as a starter.

“I think it was one of the best things that could have happened,” Seumalo said this week. “Sometimes, [in order to] kinda really get better, you have to lose a lot. … [getting benched] kind of changed my mentality, how I played, and it kind of set me on the path where I am today —  having a lot more fun, playing a lot looser, letting the game come to me. Really just taking it one play at a time. I know it’s cheesy and corny, but …. You’ve got to be in the moment.

“Game day is not a time to think. You’ve just got to go out and play.”
