The Sixers have now lost two of their last three, including a painful, embarrassing loss to the Nets with Ben Simmons on the bench.
An overtime win in Orlando against the lowly Magic and blowing a big lead against the Nuggets Monday has exacerbated the Sixers’ depth issues. The James Harden-Joel Embiid partnership got back on track against Denver, but the reserves left a lot to be desired.
In those games against the Magic and Nuggets, the Sixers’ bench was outscored by a combined 99-33. New backup center DeAndre Jordan hasn’t instilled much confidence and Georges Niang has proven to be the Sixers’ only reliable reserve.
Does that loss to the Nets — and the Sixers’ play since — concern you?
