James Harden leads the Philadelphia 76ers. It looks like he remains undefeated in the lineup. When they host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday. In Wednesday’s 123-108 victory over the New York Knicks, the Sixers advanced to 3-0 with Harden in the lineup. Harden scored 26 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and dished out nine assists. Tyrese Maxey scored 25 points, and Joel Embiid led the Sixers with 27points and 12 rebounds. Overall, Philadelphia has won four games in a row. Harden has also appeared to be at ease in his new surroundings.
James Harden remarked, “I’m pretty comfortable in a lot of scenarios.” “Whether it’s basketball or life, I feel like you can put me anywhere in a room, I’ll fit in, so there’s no difference. Just survey the room, see who’s in it, see what you have, and do your best to fit in.”
Tyrese Maxey scored at least 20 points for the third straight game. It makes no difference if Maxey gets one or fifty points. He’s just interested in one thing: winning.
Maxey states, ” Everyone’s mindset is in the correct place; everyone is focusing on the same goal, and we’re all taking the same actions, according to Maxey. We only have one goal: to win. We don’t give a damn about the numbers or how things are going. Moving forward, we want to win and play our best basketball. “
Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
When the Cavaliers visit Philadelphia, they’ll be hoping to avoid losing for the third time in a row. Also, in a 119-98 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday, Cleveland struggled. With 33 points, All-Star Darius Garland was a bright spot. With 18 points and 11 rebounds, Jarrett Allen led the way. But J.B. Bickerstaff was noticeably agitated during the game. Then, for the first time as Cleveland’s head coach, Bickerstaff was ejected. Early in the third quarter, he has two technical fouls. Despite recent setbacks, the Cavaliers have maintained their long-term commitment.
“Every game, every patch of games,” Bickerstaff added, “is a learning experience.” “Every test, every challenge that this group will face will be a new test and a new challenge. We still believe in each other and that we’re a good basketball team. But the hardest thing in this league is to replicate and win championships. And that’s where the good players, the good teams, go from good to great.”
Furthermore, the Cavaliers are arguably the league’s most improved team. That truth will never change after a couple of losses.
“It’s worth it in the end if some of these losses bring us back to the mentality that we’ve had the toughness, the physicality, the scrap,” Bickerstaff said. “This is our strategy, and we’re constantly learning and working out the issues.”
It’s unclear if Rajon Rondo or Caris LeVert will play against the 76ers. Rondo has been out for three games in a run with a toe injury, while LeVert has been out for four games in a row with a foot injury.
