Joel Embiid saw this only from the bench, before the Cameroonian had carried with 32 points (11/20 FG, 8/9 FT), 8 rebounds and 5 steals, only the 6 part of HaneBüchen Turnover were a small slippage. Hards contributed another 24 meters (6/14) and 13 assists. As a team, Sixers met 42 percent (16/38) from the distance, where Georges Niang (12) was most successful with four transformed threes.

The Mavs got up again, but after the hard minutes it was again Embiid, who hit a jump throw from the free-wedline after another. 2:30 minutes before the end, MAVS coach Jason Kidd then also emptied the bank at -13, possibly, because already in the coming night the next away game in Charlotte is.
