LOS ANGELES — The 76ers held off the Los Angeles Clippers, 119-113, at the Staples Center on Tuesday night.
Here are my main takeaways and best and worst awards.
Best performance: This goes to Embiid. He finished with game highs of 28 points, 19 rebounds, and 3 blocks to go with 5 turnovers. Fifteen of his points came in the first quarter.
Worst performance: I couldn’t avoid giving this to Furkan Korkmaz. The Sixers' reserve swingman missed five of his six shots en route to finishing with three points.
Best defensive performance: This goes to Embiid.
Worst statistic: I gave this to the Sixers' 21 turnovers, with eight coming in the third quarter.
