Coach put the ball in my hands and gave me the freedom to read it and attack. It’s great. I itch for moments like that. In close games, we all want to be part of that positive effort and I had a part of it.”Kawhi Leonard led the Clippers with 30 points on 12-for-23 shooting, and reserve Landry Shamet, playing his first game against his former team since being traded one year ago, scored 19, going 5 for 9 from 3-point range.“I thought we lost the game because we didn’t play with any continuity offensively,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.Richardson nailed his third 3-pointer of the quarter to give Philadelphia a 102-94 lead with 4:44 left. Then he scored on a driving left-handed layup and made the free throw to complete the 3-point play, extending the lead to 11. His free throw made it 110-100 with 1:15 remaining after the Clippers cut the deficit to single digits.“We didn’t make shots (in the fourth quarter),” Leonard said. “(Richardson) got to the paint, made some big 3s for them. He made shots.” Even Dr. J was impressed by Kawhi’s dunk 👀 pic.twitter.com/Al7avyLTQc— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) February 12, 2020 Embiid says NO! ❌ pic.twitter.com/lVURJSUZpa— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) February 12, 2020 PreviousPhiladelphia 76ers’ Joel Embiid, right, greets Los Angeles Clippers’ Landry Shamet after an NBA basketball game, Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2020, in Philadelphia.

(AP Photo/Matt Slocum)ExpandPHILADELPHIA — The Clippers expected to have their hands full with Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and former teammate Tobias Harris on Tuesday night.As it turned out, the first three kept the Philadelphia 76ers close with the Clippers until Josh Richardson took over.Richardson scored 17 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter, helping the Sixers beat the Clippers 110-103.Simmons had 26 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for Philadelphia, which has the NBA’s best home record at 25-2. Embiid also scored 26 points, and Tobias Harris added 17 points and 12 boards. Leonard faced the Sixers for the first time since his quadruple-bounce, Game 7 buzzer-beater knocked Philadelphia out of the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs last May. Leonard’s shot gave Toronto a 92-90 victory and the Raptors went on to beat Milwaukee and then Golden State to win the NBA championship.The Sixers opened the second half on Tuesday with a 16-5 run, taking a 70-59 lead. Simmons, Embiid and Glenn Robinson III combined for 14 of the 16.“It’s arguably the best game those two have paired up with since I’ve been here,” Brown said of Simmons and Embiid.Simmons took 22 shots, just two short of tying his career best set as a rookie in 2017. Brown moved him around, giving him opportunities away from the ball.“I just love being a player. I don’t put myself at any one position because I’m so versatile,” Simmons said.The Sixers led by 12 in the second quarter after Embiid’s reverse layup two minutes in, but the Clippers chipped away. The Clippers closed out the half with a layup by Williams and pull-up jumper by Leonard to tie it at 54.Many of the Clippers’ typical contributors had sub-par games.Forward Paul George was just 3 for 15 from the field and finished with 11 points. Lou Williams was 5 for 15 and had 13 points, and Montrezl Harrell had just 10 points on 5-for-10 shooting.The Sixers (34-21) outscored the Clippers 58-38 in the paint.ALL LOVEEmbiid heard some boos mixed in with loud cheers when he was introduced. The All-Star center shushed the crowd and screamed an expletive following a shot on Sunday after the team heard boos. He exacerbated the situation with a social media post on Monday and a friendly exchange with Jimmy Butler, hinting he might join his former teammate who now plays for Miami.But it was all love for Embiid in the fourth quarter after he and newly acquired Clipper Marcus Morris got into a shoving match. Embiid did a shimmy for fans and got a loud ovation.“I could’ve shushed them again but it was all about having fun,” Embiid said.He added: “If you dish it, you gotta take it back. But I love my city. We have a special relationship.”TIP-INSLeonard was back in the Clippers’ lineup after sitting out a lopsided win over Cleveland. … Guard Patrick Beverley missed his third straight game and sixth since Jan. 21 because of a sore right groin. … The Clippers dropped to 1-2 with one game remaining (Thursday, at Boston) on a four-game trip. … 76ers forward Al Horford came off the bench for the first time since his rookie season in 2007. Horford didn’t score a point Sunday for the first time in 835 games. Furkan Korkmaz started instead and Robinson took Korkmaz’s spot to begin the third quarter. Korkmaz had no points in 23 minutes after scoring 65 total in the past two games. … Guard Alec Burks made his Sixers debut. He was acquired along with Robinson from Golden State for draft picks last week.UP NEXTThe Clippers play at Boston on Thursday in their final game before the All-Star break.”I thought we lost the game tonight because we didn’t play with any continuity offensively.”Doc Rivers comments on falling to the Sixers.#ClipperNation • @LAClippers pic.twitter.com/Zq5L1e2KJH— FOX Sports West (@FoxSportsWest) February 12, 2020 Hear from Kawhi Leonard after tonight’s loss in Philly.#ClipperNation • @LAClippers pic.twitter.com/6L1fGz7Oeo— FOX Sports West (@FoxSportsWest) February 12, 2020 Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
