Embiid's double-double powers 76ers past Knicks 117-91

  • Ben Simmons Jimmy Butler

The 7-footer had 17 points, seven rebounds and six assists in the first half alone. While Korver certinaly isn't a bad defender, the Sixers are specifically looking for a versatile wing player, who can defend multiple positions. He finished with his NBA-best 21st double-double and helped the Sixers improve to 11-1 at home.

He didn't stick around to offer his usual quips and one-liners to the media - Embiid split to catch up with his family.

His coach, Brett Brown, was more impressed by Butler's hustle on the previous play, when he dived for a loose ball to secure the final possession.

The Sixers are up to third in the East, although still three games back from the rampant Toronto Raptors, having enjoyed an extended run of form since the arrival of Jimmy Butler from the Minnesota Timberwolves. They played with objective against the road-weary Knicks.

"We're just getting better, we're further along in the season and Jimmy is adapting a lot better".

Rudy Gobert had 23 points and 16 rebounds for the Jazz, while Australian swingman Joe Ingles chimed in with seven points, seven rebounds and five assists.

The Sixers obviously still have a long way to go since it hasn't even been a month as mentioned before, but with Butler seeming to look more comfortable by the game, this team has to love the direction they're heading as a top contender in the Eastern Conference once again. "It certainly increases the dopamine levels in your brain". "We just got blitzed and we really didn't have an answer for anything they did".

JAZZ 101, NETS 91: Donovan Mitchell returned from a two-game absence with 29 points, taking over down the stretch and leading Utah to a win at Brooklyn. Fultz had said he wasn't hurt and the decision came a day after he appeared to lose his backup point guard spot.

With that being said, Philadelphia has every reason in the world to be thrilled about how things worked out when seeing how much Butler has been clicking with his new teammates since coming on board.

Simmons might be playing like an All-Star, but he has yet to attempt a 3-pointer this season and missed all 11 tries last season.
