The Philadelphia 76ers were looking to pick up another win at home and take advantage of an inferior opponent when the Oklahoma City Thunder paid a visit to the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night. The Sixers had picked up two easy wins over the Detroit Pistons and they now were looking to continue their winning ways.
The Thunder brought the Sixers back to earth with a thud as they earned a 133-114 win on the road. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 37 points on 10-for-16 shooting with eight rebounds and six assists as Philadelphia overlooked the Thunder following the two easy wins over Detroit.
On Philadelphia’s side of things, Joel Embiid had 30 points and 10 rebounds, but he had five fouls. James Harden added 24 points, 15 assists, and six rebounds, Tyrese Maxey added 17 and six assists, and Tobias Harris chipped in with 13 points.
