The Other Guys: Sactown Royalty
- Philadelphia: Sergio Rodriguez, Gerald Henderson, Robert Covington, Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor
- Sacramento: Darren Collison, Ben McLemore, Rudy Gay, DeMarcus Cousins, Kosta Koufos
- Philadelphia: Nik Stauskas is probable with a right knee contusion, Richaun Holmes is out with a concussion and Ben Simmons is out with a right foot fracture.
- Sacramento: Shooting guard Arron Afflalo (right elbow sprain) is questionable. Rudy Gay (right hip flexor strain) “will attempt to play tonight.”
Sixers-Kings by the Numbers (Courtesy of stats.nba.com and basketball-reference.com)
- 27.4 - Nerlens Noel’s PER entering tonight’s game
- 2.4 - Joel Embiid’s blocks per game. That’s good for second in the association among centers who’ve played 480 minutes or more.
- 22.8 - Joel Embiid’s PER. He’s second among Eastern Conference centers who’ve played 480 minutes or more. He leads all rookies as well.
- 57.7 - Joel Embiid’s shooting percentage from shots 16-feet to the 3-point arc.
- 2 - The number of top-10, first-round picks the Sixers could have in the 2017 and 2019 drafts. That unprotected 2019 first-round pick from Sacramento is definitely appealing.
