5 Important Numbers

  • Since his offensive outburst against Indiana, JJ Redick is shooting just 23.5 percent from three (8-for- 34).
  • After his five-steal performance Wednesday against the Lakers, Ben Simmons is averaging 2.4 steals throughout November.
  • Richaun Holmes totaled 21 minutes against Golden State last Saturday. With more mobility than the struggling Amir Johnson, Holmes could see double-digit minutes.
  • Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot could be a vital contributor off of the bench, but needs to take smarter shot attempts. He’s just 1-for- 10 from deep over his last two games.
  • Joel Embiid has taken 20 shot attempts in three of his last four games. Avoiding foul trouble and being a four-quarter featured offensive option would be a huge boon for the Sixers’ upset potential.
