NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 129-128, as Furkan Korkmaz delivered a game-winning three to put the Blazers away:

The Sixers now sit at 5-0 — they are the NBA’s only undefeated team. The win was arguably the Sixers most impressive of the season. Traveling west, without Joel Emiid due to suspension, the Sixers mounted a comeback erasing a 21-point deficit for the victory.

Tobias Harris and Al Horford picked up some of the scoring slack with Joel Embiid out, combining for 48 points. Harris was highly efficient on his way to 23 points, shooting 10 for 15 from the floor, adding a 3PT on two attempts, and going 2 for 2 from the line. Horford dropped 25 points on 12 for 24 from the floor, collected 5 rebounds, and added 7 assists.

The Sixers continue their road trip tomorrow against the Phoenix Suns.

Stay tuned for the bell ringer.
