Player grades: Undermanned Sixers battle, but fall short to Trail Blazers

The Philadelphia 76ers paid a visit to the Moda Center on Monday night to take on the Portland Trail Blazers while missing some key pieces. Once again down Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey, the Sixers knew it would be a tough battle against the scrappy Blazers. Portland has been a struggling team record-wise, but the talent is there.

The Sixers hung in there and put up a fight despite missing Embiid and Maxey and having Tobias Harris return from illness, but the Blazers used a big third quarter to eventually walk away with a 130-104 victory. Philadelphia has now lost three games in a row to begin this 5-game trip.

Kelly Oubre Jr. had 25 points and six rebounds for the Sixers, Patrick Beverley added 14 points and five assists, Paul Reed had 11 points and six rebounds, Harris added nine points, and Marcus Morris Sr. also had nine off the bench.

Here are the player grades following the loss:
