Notes:

  • Justin Anderson is still glued to some unfortunate South Philadelphia toilet and will not play tonight. Apparently, I can’t read. Justin Anderson has been physically removed from the toilet thanks to the literal strength of his teammates and he is available for selection tonight. And/or his gastroenteritis has passed.
  • Jahlil Okafor will miss the game with right knee soreness.
  • The Orlando Magic have the fourth worst record in the NBA. The Sixers have the fifth worst record in the NBA. 1.5 games separate the two games. Games like this are why Tankathon was invented.
  • In his recap of last night’s game, Max described this Sixers season as exciting but has since ventured off the rails, which if you think about it, basically describes every Philadelphia sports team for 2016-17.
  • What are the odds this game is more remarkable than the six NCAA Tournament games played in this venue four and two days ago, respectively?
