The Philadelphia 76ers needed to find a way to bounce back following two disappointing losses at home. They fell to the Boston Celtics on a last-second shot by Jayson Tatum and then they fell to the Miami Heat when Jimmy Butler came up large down the stretch.
Philadelphia had a rematch with the Heat down in Miami on Wednesday and they were able to bounce back with a 119-96 win. It was a dominant effort as they led by as many as 25 and they were just too much for the Heat on the night.
Tyrese Maxey led the Sixers with 27 points, seven assists, and four rebounds while James Harden added 23 points, seven rebounds, and five assists. The two of them were a dynamic duo on the offensive end and the Heat had no clue how to stop them.
Tobias Harris added 18 points, Paul Reed had 16 and a career-high 14 rebounds, and Shake Milton had 12.
