Sixers get Embarrassed by Memphis on Easter

Philadelphia: As the entire nation celebrates Easter, the push to make the NBA Playoffs keeps going on as the Philadelphia 76ers took on the Memphis Grizzlies from the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia. The Sixers took down Minnesota last night at home after being on the road for 6 games.

One of the stories going into the game was Joel Embiid going to play back to back night after being out for 3 weeks with injury, Answer is NO

The reason

Dwight Howard would get the start at center in place of Joel Embiid


The Sixers would come out on fire to begin the game & Ben Simmons was being aggressive in getting t the basket.

Memphis would have other ideas and just make this game a no contest featuring a 45 point 3rd quarter which sealed the game

The Sixers would fall to Memphis 116-100 and they just looked flat all game.


Postgame:

Sixers coach Doc Rivers would open up on how they looked

Sixers Center Dwight Howard on on how they can respond from this bad loss

Final Numbers:

What is next:
Sixers went 1-1 on this homestand and now head back on the road for 4 games starting on Tuesday, April 6
