SIXERS LASH LOONG-LIONS IN EXO OPENER!

By Annie Ross

The Sixers rolled out their new look last night at the Wells, and Ben Simmons racked up 21 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists in a 144-86 win over the Guangzhou Loong-Lions.

Joel Embiid bagged 17 points, nine of which came from the free throw line.

Josh Richardson went 6 for 9 from the field, and connected on 3 of 5 3-point attempts.

After turning heads over the weekend with his aggressive, pesky defensive play at the Blue x White Scrimmage, Matisse Thybulle stood out again. He continued to prove an irritant on defense, tallying three steals and two blocks. The 2019 no. 20 pick netted 10 points (4-6 fg, 2-4 3fg) as well.

On the whole, the Sixers shot over 53% from the floor, buried 16 threes, and outrebounded the opposition by 11 (including a plus-9 advantage on the offensive glass).
