The Philadelphia 76ers took care of business on Thursday when they invaded the Moda Center to collect victory over the Portland Trail Blazers with a score of 105:95.. The 66ers are now 4-0 on this trip and they will be looking to win Saturday against the Sacramento Kings.
The 66ers were able to take the win on Thursday thanks to their defensive efforts and another dominating performance from Joel Embiid. The big guy was great again, having 32 points on 12-of-22 shooting with nine rebounds and three blocks. The Blazers had no real answer for Embiid that night, and the 6ers benefited from it.
James Harden added 16 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds, Tyrese Maxey added 15 off the bench, and Tobias Harris added 11 and seven boards. Shake Milton added 10 and Georges Niang lost nine off the bench as Philadelphia got production from up and down the list.
