NBA Twitter reacts to Joel Embiid, Sixers being blitzed by Pelicans

Following an 8-game winning streak, the Philadelphia 76ers have lost two in a row following a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday. The Sixers had 19 turnovers which led to 30 Pelicans points and they allowed CJ McCollum to drill a career-high and New Orleans franchise record 11 triples.

The loss wasted another huge performance from Joel Embiid who had 37 points on 14-for-22 shooting with eight rebounds and five assists. He had 15 points in both the first quarter and the third quarter, but he seemed to run out of gas as he had only two points on 1-for-4 shooting with two turnovers in the fourth quarter.

James Harden had 20 points and 10 assists, but he also had seven turnovers and Tyrese Maxey made his return from an 18-game injury absence to score nine points off the bench. Tobias Harris added 14 points and five rebounds.

NBA Twitter, fans and analysts alike, reacted to McCollum and the Pelicans coming away with the win.
