Embiid, Simmons lead 76ers past Mavericks, 106-100 - Jan 6, 2019

Joel Embiid
Joel Embiid (7'0''-C-94, college: Kansas) and Ben Simmons (6'10''-F-96, college: LSU) carried the load without Jimmy Butler. And when Butler returns, the 76ers stars expect Philadelphia to keep rolling. Embiid had 25 points and 12 rebounds, and Simmons added 20 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in Philadelphia's 106-100 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night. Embiid hit two key free throws late for Philadelphia, which was without Butler for the second straight game due to an upper respiratory infection. The four-time All-Star wasn't around to address a published report that said he recently challenged coach Brett Brown in a disrespectful way about his role in the offense. Brown downplayed the incident before the game, and both Embiid and Simmons expressed the belief afterward that the three stars can coexist. 'Everybody is trying to fit in,' Embiid said. 'We are going to keep working on it. We are inching toward it, and we are going to get there.' Simmons added: 'Jimmy's been great, amazing for me.' J.J. Redick (6'4''-G-84, college: Duke) added 20 points for Philadelphia, which improved to 17-3 at home while winning its fourth in the last five. Wesley Matthews had 18 points to pace short-handed Dallas, which fell to 3-18 on the road. The Mavericks were without Dirk Nowitzki (rest), Devin Harris (back) and J.J. Barea (ankle). Rookie guard Jalen Brunson (6'3''-G-96, college: Villanova) came off the bench to contribute 13 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists. The 76ers, who led by as many as 19 points in the second half, were seemingly in total control until Luka Doncic's 3-pointer with just over a minute remaining cut the lead to 101-97. The lead still was four when Dwight Powell (6'11''-F-91, college: Stanford) made one of two free throws for the Mavericks with 50 seconds left. 'We gave ourselves a chance to win it,' Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. But Embiid, with 'M-V-P! M-V-P!' chants raining down from the sold-out crowd, drained two foul shots with 28 seconds remaining to give Philadelphia breathing room. 'Once again, we had to make the game interesting,' Embiid said. The 76ers had a 30-point advantage dwindle to three points before pulling out a 132-127 victory at Phoenix on Wednesday in their previous game. Philadelphia methodically pulled away, increasing a 31-26 first-quarter advantage to 59-51 at the half. The 76ers made 10 of 20 field goals in the third quarter, settling for an 87-70 lead to start the fourth. Nowitzki didn't play on the second night of a back-to-back after going scoreless in the Mavericks' 114-93 loss at Boston on Friday night. Nowitzki missed all 10 of his shots, including eight from 3-point range, while failing to score for just the ninth time in his 21-year career. He needed two points to become the Western Conference player with the most points on Boston's home court.

Jimmy Butler To Decline His Player Option - 1 day ago
Jimmy Butler (6'7''-G/F-89, college: Marquette) will decline his player option for the 2019/20 season and hit the free agent market, sources tell Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. The Sixers have been expecting Butler to take this route. Philadelphia remains 'adamant' about retaining Butler and the franchise appears willing to do whatever is necessary to re-sign the 29-year-old. Butler has previously expressed that he's confident a max contract awaits him in free agency. The Lakers have real...   [read more]

Goran Dragic opts into $19.2 million final season on Heat contract - 2 days ago
Goran Dragic is back in play for the Miami Heat, with the Sun Sentinel confirming Thursday through an NBA source that the veteran point guard has picked up the $19.2 million 2019-20 option on his contract. Dragic had until June 29 to inform the Heat of his opt-in decision. By rule, he was ineligible to be traded until such a decision was made. He otherwise would have become a free agent on July 1. The Heat continue to wait on a decision from center Hassan Whiteside, who holds a $27   [read more]
