|Thaddeus Young, PF Shot Chart 35 MIN | 7-18 FG | 5-6 FT | 3 REB | 3 AST | 2 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 19 PTS | -16Thad scored 19 but was … meh. His outside game continued to regress and he struggled on the glass.|
|Henry Sims, C Shot Chart 23 MIN | 4-9 FG | 2-2 FT | 6 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 10 PTS | +4Saw some good things from Sims tonight. He moves pretty well for a large human, has a nice face-up game and he blocked Tobias Harris relatively disrespectfully. That’s all it takes to earn a passing grade on the Sixers this season. Plus, he was one of two net-positive players wearing red and white tonight (+4).|
|Michael Carter-Williams, PG Shot Chart 32 MIN | 3-13 FG | 2-3 FT | 6 REB | 4 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 8 PTS | -15Rookies hit walls. MCW has hit a tidal wave.|
|Hollis Thompson, SG Shot Chart 25 MIN | 2-4 FG | 0-0 FT | 7 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 6 PTS | -6Hollis had a high-efficiency night. He did a lot without requiring the ball, knocked down two threes on four attempts, put together a nice haul on the glass, and played some better-than-typical-Thompson defense. Not to mention, he played some Dorell Wright-esque stretch four tonight and it was beautiful.|
|Arnett Moultrie, PF Shot Chart 16 MIN | 0-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 0 PTS | 0Remember when they traded a first-round pick for this guy?|

The Magic just broke their 16-game road losing streak in Philly, and the Sixers are now 15-43. They’re 3.5 games ahead of (behind?) the Bucks. The spotlight is on you, Milwaukee. Don’t disappoint.
