HOW SIXERS TREAD WATER AND SANK THE NETS IN WIN OF THE YEAR!

By Art Beitchman

With a skeleton lineup taking on the Brooklyn Nets in Ben Simmons’ return to Philadelphia, the 76ers reserves showed up and beat down the 9-point favored Nets 115-106 for one of the biggest wins of the year.

Brooklyn had their full team intact, but didn’t match the 76ers intensity the whole game.

The Sixers were led by Tobias Harris’ 24 points, DeAnthony Melton’s 22, and B-Ball Paul Reed played his best game as a Sixer, scoring 19 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in a really gritty performance.

The reserves getting significant playing time came through — hopefully with more playing time those reserves can be better when the full starting lineup returns sometime in December.

Until Joel Embiid, James Harden and Tyrese Maxey return, the team needs to tread water.

If last night was any indication, they can keep getting wins playing scrappy basketball.
