    Sixers up 66-50 at the half. Nits a bright spot playing well, seems to have good games after being sidelined. KK and Kornet also in double figures. Nothing else to play for except to develop the young guys.

    Breen just mentioned Jimmy Butler, hes been like an afterthought this game with Embiid and Simmons starring. Sixers have to think hard about paying him $190M if he plays like this imo.

    Kornet can put the ball on the deck, went left on his drive and got fouled.

    Nits being aggressive, tries to take it to the rim and dunk it after blowing by TJ but doesn't get up high enough and pins the ball in the rim and backboard. Definitely not an above the rim player better that he becomes a 3 pt sniper.

    They're in a tough situation because if they don't pay him after giving up Saric and Covington they're a lock 6th seed for the seeable future. It's funny how people want to criticize Butler for showing too much personality and bravado but if he plays the lesser role then he's being a wasteful talent.

    No wonder some of these athletes act like they do sometimes. Almost can't win!

    What would Kawhi look like on their team? Wouldn't Simmons and Embiid have to make room for him? I doubt Fultz is coming back and supposedly Sixers are interested in trading their picks for vet help. They have only 1 way to go

    Kornet again drove left, thought he was left handed after that but hes right handed after seeing him shoot FTs. Kornet a beast cutting the Sixers lead to 1 outplaying Jo.

    Knox did I speak too soon. Way to go young fella, keep mixing the game up

    Thats a lot of dough for your 3rd best player, if they make it to the conference finals maybe.

    I agree, although Butler is probably their 2nd best player if he was allowed to be. With that being said Sixers won't find a cheaper and better 3rd option and they don't have an alternative unless of course they trade him in about a month.

    Nits has missed at least 4 shots in the paint after nice drives and putting up high pct shots, they'll fall eventually, he's playing well today.

    Nits almost looks as big as Simmons on the floor. Mario makes a nice bounce pass to a cutting KK who dunks it but the boys are down 10 despite some moments of brilliant play. 94--85 after KK makes his FT. 6 mins left.

    Kornet hits a 3 cutting the lead to 8. 23 pts for him and showed toughness and a versatile game today.
