Even without Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, the 76ers managed to put up 130 points on the Clippers Sunday afternoon. However, it wasn't enough in a 136–130 loss. Five different players scored in double digits though, including leading scorer Shake Milton, who had a career-high 39 points, and Tobias Harris also had 25 points. Sitting in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, the achilles heel for the Sixers this entire season had been them winning on the road. The team is 28–2 at home, but just 9–22 on the road.
Meanwhile, the Lakers are coming off an impressive 122–114 win over the Pelicans on Sunday without Anthony Davis. Once again LeBron James, the heart and soul of the Lakers, led the way. James had another triple-double, collecting 34 points, along with 12 rebounds and 13 assists. Five other players scored in double digits, including Kyle Kuzma, who tallied 20 points. The team better make sure not to look towards the end of the week when the Bucks, who own the best record in the NBA, come to town on Friday.
