This is a good early test. Sixers have looked good but Portland is terrible and the Raptors with a new coach are mediocre. Granted, they should have beaten the Bucks but for the officiating.

Keep in mind, the Raptors beat the Bucks pretty badly. Bucks couldn't handle their athleticism.

Ball's up.

Embiid still terrible on tips.

Sixers, 2nd and 3rd.

Up and down start, looking at 2nd half foul trouble with some sloppy defense from Harris and Oubre.

Sloppy turnover prone offense is letting the Suns stay in this game. Should have well over 30 and let them close the 1st only down 25-24. 6 turnovers, missed bunnies, offensive fouls bad shot selection.

Been screaming for an athletic wing for a decade.

Oubre is gonna blow up in Philly.

What a signing.

Oubre with 17 in the 1st half.

Not too shabby a replacement for Tucker, huh.

They'd be in real trouble without him in this 1st half. 12-13 TOs, bad shooting, offensive fouls.

Melton has been pretty horrible on the offensive end to start the season. He still has trouble finishing around the rim and his 3pt shot has been off target.
