3 things for Sixers fans to watch against the Hornets

NO. No Hornets player is averaging more than 13.4 ppg, and even Kemba Walker is averaging 7.0 points per quarter. He has earned the confidence of the Sixers to aggressively seek out shots there.

Embiid scored 16 points in the 4th including a game-tying three pointer with 34 seconds left on the clock.

Ben Simmons contributed 22 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds. However, Charlotte needs someone else to step up in crunch time, because teams are going to be focusing and expanding so much energy on guarding Walker.

In Salt Lake City, Joe Ingles matched his career high with 27 points and added a season-high seven assists to help Utah beat Boston in Gordon Hayward's return to Utah.

That's why Embiid couldn't just settle with claiming the upper hand last week in his second battle of the season with longtime nemesis Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons by outscoring him in the first half, 32-0. He shot 43.8% from the field, making 7 of his 16 attempts (5/6 from the line, 1/5 from three-point range).

Poor defensive efforts have resulted in a 25-point blowout loss to the Brooklyn Nets this past Sunday, a 17-point loss in Toronto on October 30, and of course the 18-point loss to the Celtics to open the season.

Terry Rozier scored 22 points for the Celtics, while Tatum had 21.

Magic 117, Wizards 108: ORLANDO, Fla.

Bradley Beal led Washington with 27 points. Washington fell to 2-9. Embiid ended up with 20 points, 2 assists, 10 rebounds, 1 steal, 3 blocks and 1 three with 5 turnovers in 36 minutes.

In a game that was essentially decided in the first quarter, the Pistons were so dominant that they scored 74 points and led by 23 at halftime with Blake Griffin, the NBA's fifth-leading scorer, 0 for 2 from the field. While he does have nine double-doubles and two triple-doubles through 11 games, his points, assists, field goal percentage, blocks and assist-to-turnover ratio are all down from his rookie season. Jeremy Lin had 19 points for Atlanta.

Caris LeVert hit a jumper in the lane with less than a second left, and Brooklyn rallied to beat host Denver. Nikola Jokic broke out of a funk to score a season-high 37 and tied a career-high with 21 rebounds, but Denver lost its first home game of the season after winning the first six.

A 15-point loss in Milwaukee has given the Sixers an 0-3 clip on the road against the only three Eastern Conference teams ahead of them in the current standings.

D'Angelo Russell led the Nets with 23 points.

Kings 121, Timberwolves 110: SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Willie Cauley-Stein had 25 points and Nemanja Bjelica scored eight in a row during a big run late in the third quarter to lift Sacramento.
