Sixers Bell Ringer: Sixers crush Lakers, winning 13 of their last 16 games

LeBron James was out with knee soreness. That left Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook to try to snag a big road win in Philadelphia on Thursday. But they’d have to figure out how to do what no other team has been able to do lately, and that’s stop Joel Embiid. Embiid is on a historic run, and despite Davis’ best efforts, scoring a game-high 31 points, to go with 12 boards and four blocks, it wasn’t nearly enough. The Sixers won handily, 105-87. It’s their 13th victory in their last 16 games. They’re as hot as any team in basketball and no one in the league is outplaying Embiid right now.

Lakers News: Anthony Davis Tried ‘Stay Aggressive’ Against 76ers To ‘Get Back To My Old Self’

Despite missing 17 games with an MCL injury, Anthony Davis has shown no ill effects since returning to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. Against the Brooklyn Nets, Davis was moving on both ends of the floor well and afterward noted he could have played more despite being on a minutes restriction. In the Lakers’ loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, Davis proved he is past his knee injury as he recorded a 31-point, 12-rebounds double-double in 34 minutes of action to go along with two steals and four blocks.

Lakers vs. Hornets Preview: L.A.’s role players need to step up

After a rough loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, the Lakers will have less than 24 hours to recover before they tip-off again against the Charlotte Hornets. This will be a tough one for the purple and gold, not only due to the game being the second half of a road back-to-back, but also because they’re going up against a young and confident team that’s coming off a dominant, 32-point victory.

76ers' Andre Drummond: Grabs 10 boards vs. Lakers

Drummond closed with two points (1-3 FG), 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 13 minutes during Thursday's 105-87 victory over the Lakers. Drummond collected double-digit boards in the loss but, per usual, offered basically nothing else. He has now scored in single digits in nine consecutive games, exceeding 18 minutes just twice in that span. As long as Joel Embiid is healthy, Drummond is nothing more than a streaming option for those in need of boards and some defensive contributions.
