Join Danny Marang and Brandon Sprague to break down the Trail Blazers Monday night loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, 113-103. The Blazers are now 3-4 on the year and 0-2 on this road trip with the Cleveland Cavaliers remaining before Portland returns home.
Of course, the Blazers had to make it special with the 76ers missing their top 3 players in Joel Embiid (rest), Ben Simmons (away from the team) and Tobias Harris (health & safety) all out and yet Portland couldn’t get a foothold to all night long. In for Embiid, Andre Drummond - the Big Penguin waddled his way to 14 points, 15 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 steals - outplaying and outworking Portland on every level.
Meanwhile, Seth Curry (SETH BLEEPING CURRY) was dared into shooting wide open jump shots, ya know - the thing he does best? Cool. So Portland probably took care of something? Nope! Georges Niang made Philly forget about Ben Simmons for a night as he dashed, darted, dipped, dived and dodged his way to 21 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists.
That’s how the 76ers got it done - but what happened to the Blazers? Should the search party be sent for Damian Lillard? Does Jusuf Nurkic know he’s in a contract year? That and more on the post game show with Danny and Brandon - hop in, hang out, and we’ll all try to figure this out together!
