Game notes:

  • The Sixers are wrapping up a back-to-back against the Oklahoma City after falling to the Washington Wizards 99-94 on Thursday night. Philadelphia shot just 38.5% from the field and 18.2% from beyond the arc en route to their third straight loss. Ish Smith led the Sixers with 20 points, but did so on just 9-25 shooting. Nerlens Noel provided the only real positive play for the team, finishing with 14 points, 16 rebounds and 7 steals.
  • Jerami Grant made his return to game action on Thursday after sitting the past two games out with a concussion. He played nearly 30 minutes and added 13 points on 2-6 shooting. Richaun Holmes is still out nursing an aching achilles, while Robert Covington is still in concussion protocol.
  • For the Thunder, Serge Ibaka will reportedly be resting. Mitch McGary will be active in his place.
