New Orleans Pelicans's Latest Performance :
The Pelicans are coming off an impressive win over the Spurs leading the way for the Pelicans was Davis he scored 29 points with nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two blocks. Davis will be looking to hit the 10k career points against the Sixers as he is six points shy of hitting the mark. Randle dropped his 6th triple-double of his career in only 25 mins of play. He scored 21 points (9-of-13 FG, 3-of-3 FT) with 14 rebounds, ten assists and one steals. Holiday chipped in with 21 points and dishing nine dimes. More importantly, he was aggressive, especially from the second quarter on. Holiday controlled the tempo, kept the ball moving, and as usual, set the tone defensively by coming up with a couple of steals and a block. Moore continued his hot shooting touch as his scoring in double figures reached six. He has really been the difference maker for the Pelicans during their three-game win-streak as they climb their way back into the standings.
Philadelphia 76ers's Latest Performance :
The 76ers are on a three-game winning streak they are starting to play well as a unit after losing their first game against the Magic. Leading the way for Philly was Embiid he scored 33 points and grabbed 17 boards as he dominated his matchup Ayton. Phoenix had no answer for Embiid, who could have threatened the 40-point mark had he not missed all five of his three-point attempts. Butler chipped in with 16 points as he is starting to feel comfortable with his new team. Ben Simmons almost had a triple-double as he was an assist shy. He finished the game with a stat line of 19 points/11 rebounds, nine assists, one steal. For the second consecutive game the second-year point forward fell one assist short of a triple-double, a feat he accomplished twice in his first four appearances of the season. As Simmons and his teammates grow more accustomed to playing alongside recent acquisition Jimmy Butler, Philadelphia stands to be an even tougher team for opposing squads to defend.
