Philadelphia 76ers 105, Portland Trail Blazers 95 (Final)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Sean Highkin @highkin
The Blazers are facing a season-defining stretch of the season with five “winnable” games, the final weeks before the trade deadline as the size issue was exposed against Joel Embiid tonight and Nikola Jokic on Tuesday.

Damian Lillard: “If this was a game where we came out and played well, like the Cleveland game, and then at the end we have hiccups and we lose…this one I didn’t feel like we deserved to win…Nobody in the world is looking at [tonight] saying ‘Man, we should have had that one’” – 2:09 AM
Austin Krell @NBAKrell
More Embiid dominance, another Harden triple-double, and the Sixers mostly cruised to a fourth win on their 5-game road trip:

Joel Embiid: “It’s funny when you’ve got these old guys always talking about posting up, ‘you need to spend time in the paint,’ and all that stuff. You can’t win this way anymore. It’s not the fricking 90s or 80s like it used to be. So, they must not have any basketball IQ.” pic.twitter.com/ykoElNlEDl1:35 AM

One win away from a 5-0 road trip out West. Another 30+ game from Embiid. Another triple-double for Harden. They cooled off in the second half, but still tons to be thrilled with watching the Sixers right now:

Jason Dumas @JDumasReports
Shame Embiid likely retires without an MVP. He’s one of the most talented/ unique basketball players to ever live. Injuries, storylines/narratives, and Jokic being equally as special has contributed to him coming up just short constantly. Appreciate that dude though. He different – 12:24 AM

Sixers beat Portland, 105-95. They are 29-16 and 4-0 on their West Coast swing. Last one is Saturday in Sacramento.
Not the prettiest performance, a bit too much fouling and sloppy second-half offensive execution, but a comfortable win nonetheless. Sixers are rolling right now. – 12:23 AM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
FINAL: Sixers 105, Blazers 95. Sixers are now 4-0 on this West road trip, but surely won’t be happy with the way they let a 26-point lead slip in the second half. Embiid with 32 and 9. Harden with a triple-double with 16-10-14. Maxey with 15 off the bench. – 12:23 AM

Nurk clearly wanted the ball to try to draw the sixth foul on Embiid (or have an easier finish if Embiid let up to avoid) – 12:18 AM

Maxey gets a tough whistle on the road. Lot of contact here pic.twitter.com/5dHqjpNH0312:18 AM

Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Another push from the Blazers, who are now within single digits at 95-86 with less than four minutes to play. Feels like the Sixers are just hoping time runs out at this point. – 12:12 AM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
It really is getting hard to put into words how good Joel Embiid is. He continues to defy any type of logic in terms of what a 7-footer should be doing on a basketball court. The guy is just terrific. #Sixers12:09 AM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Dame trying to grift the Blazers back into this one. Got a VERY generous continuation call for 3 FTs, could cut it to 12. – 12:08 AM

2 big buckets from Shake Milton to end that 3rd Q. The Blazers had all the momentum as they got back into this one a bit, but Milton put a stop to that with those 4 quick points. #Sixers11:51 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Sixers 79, Blazers 65 at the end of a bad third quarter for the Sixers. They could use some microwave scoring from Maxey or Milton to start the fourth. Wonder how long until Embiid comes back in. – 11:51 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Shake Milton helps the Sixers avert complete disaster in that third quarter. Some super sloppy team offense gave Portland a chance to make it a game.
Sixers lead Blazers 79-65 after three quarters. – 11:50 PM

Blazers have gotten what was a 26-point deficit down to 75-57 late in the third. Embiid had come off the floor earlier than normal because of the four fouls. – 11:40 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
There was no reason for PJ Tucker to pick up a technical foul there. You’re up big. Just gotta let that one go, man. #Sixers11:37 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Touchdown, Embiid.
(And Harden now with 12 assists to go with his 12 points) – 11:33 PM
Austin Krell @NBAKrell
I think Harden screamed “LAYUP” at Embiid when he delivered the bounce pass to him in the shooting pocket on that last pick-and-roll. Joel hesitated and then knocked down the J. – 11:30 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Embiid is one shy of 600 career blocks. – 11:27 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Like the Sixers, the Blazers also have a chicken-related promotion for free McDonald’s McNuggets if the Blazers reach 100 points. Not sure that’ll happen tonight after their lowest-scoring first half of the season. – 11:23 PM
Austin Krell @NBAKrell
Whatever Harden did to take care of that hamstring and get in shape last summer, that regimen should be the textbook for other guards.
The marginal burst that allows him to blow by has been fabulous, even if not a complete return to his prime self. – 11:13 PM

Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers lead 57-34 at halftime. Don’t think anyone outside of Maxey and Embiid (who slowed down a bit in the second) was super sharp offensively.
Good Sixers defense, but that was some tough stuff from Portland. – 11:10 PM
Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
An awesome first half showing for the @Philadelphia 76ers, leading, 57-34, at the break.
Embiid: 17 PTS / 6 REB
Maxey: 13 PTS
Harden: 7 PTS / 5 REB / 9 AST – 11:09 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Halftime: Sixers 57, Blazers 34. Sixers didn’t even play that terrifically, but Blazers were baaaad offensively. Shot 31 percent from the floor, 1-of-14 from 3 and committed 12 turnovers that the Sixers converted into 13 points. Embiid with 17 and 6. Maxey with 13. – 11:08 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Sixers 57, Blazers 34: halftime. – 11:08 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
If Sixers weren’t cruising I would probably challenge that 3rd foul on Embiid. Looked like Grant just kind of tripped himself – 11:07 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Doc’s been bringing Maxey in for the last two minutes of the first half, and it pays off there with the 3 to put the Sixers up 25. – 11:05 PM

The Blazers are struggling against Philly’s defensive intensity. The 76ers are playing as if this is a playoff game. They are bringing it and Portland is struggling to get shots off and hold on to the ball. Shooting 26.1%. Down 30-14 early 2nd. – 10:41 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Terrific first quarter for Philadelphia. They held the Blazers to 27.3% shooting and 0/6 from deep while getting 10 points from Joel Embiid and 6 off the bench from Tyrese Maxey. Philly leads it 26-14 after 1 quarter. #Sixers10:39 PM

Sixers 26, Blazers 14 at the end of the first. Portland made just 6 of its 22 shots, including 0-of-6 from 3. Lillard and Simons are a combined 2-of-11. Embiid with 10 and 6. Maxey with 6 off the bench. Harden already with 6 assists. – 10:37 PM

Blazers are down 12 after the first quarter and it simultaneously feels like they should be only down by 2 and like they should be down by 20, if that makes sense. – 10:36 PM

Once again, Joel Embiid is off to a terrific start on the offensive end of the floor. He’s up to 10 points on 4/6 shooting and he’s been a big deterrent on the defensive end at the rim. #Sixers10:27 PM
Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
The @Philadelphia 76ers lead, 15-6, at the first break.
Joel Embiid: 10 PTS / 4-5 fg
The Trail Blazers: 6 PTS / 3-13 fg – 10:24 PM
Austin Krell @NBAKrell
Sixers basically running a shell drill of their offense early, Embiid just doing whatever he wants around the nail.
Think it’s underrated that Harden isn’t afraid to thread the needle with bounce passes, esp. in transition. Worst case is a kicked ball, best case highlight dime. – 10:24 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
Good start for Embiid and the Sixers defense. Joel is cooking, Nurkic has a couple fouls already, and Portland has just 6 points. Philly by 9. – 10:23 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Feeling like a broken record, but it’s another strong start for Embiid. He’s got 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting in six minutes. The rest of the Sixers are 1-of-8 from the floor. But the Blazers are even worse, and the Sixers lead 15-6 midway through the period. – 10:23 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Y’all are gonna be surprised by this one, but…
Embiid is off to a fast start yet again. – 10:22 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
8 straight wins for the Celtics. They’ve opened up a 4.5 game lead on the Bucks, 5 game lead on the 76ers, 5.5 game lead on the Nets (Brooklyn is playing right now) and a 6 game lead on the Cavs.
That’s a nice cushion to have built before the end of January. – 10:21 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Blazers had started 1-for-10 from the floor before that finish by Grant. – 10:20 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Nurkic in early foul trouble. They weren’t able to do much with Embiid even with him in. Without him it could get rough. – 10:19 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Blazers are 1-of-9 and Nurk picks up his second foul with 7:35 to play in the first quarter. – 10:19 PM

Some very very rapid MVP chants for Embiid at the stripe here in Portland – 10:18 PM

Have loved seeing Embiid run the floor a bit more on this trip. Early seal of Nurkic, good Harden entry, two free throws. Easy money – 10:18 PM
