2019 NBA All-Star Game: Philadelphia 76ers give solid performances

The Philadelphia 76ers had two All-Stars, in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, for the first time since Allen Iverson and Dikembe Mutombo in 2001. Seeing Ben and Joel on different teams was very odd, hopefully, this was just a one-time thing. All-Star games aren’t the best fit for players like Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons due to […] 2019 NBA All-Star Game: Philadelphia 76ers give solid performances - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sixers stars square off in NBA All-Star Game

Team LeBron or Team Giannis? It’s NBA All-Star weekend! Sixers fans have already seen their squad well represented in the festivities down in Charlotte.

We didn’t see him pull up from 3 as many anticipated, but Simmons certainly showed why he’s ready to graduate to the main event.

Tobias Harris and the Sixers already look like a great fit

An elite starting five is nothing new for the Philadelphia 76ers. In 2017-18, their starters had the best net rating (plus-21) of any five-man lineup with at least 300 minutes played. For the bulk of this season, Ben Simmons, JJ Redick, Jimmy Butler, Wilson Chandler, and Joel Embiid adjusted on the fly and still ranked sixth among five-man groups with at least 200 minutes at plus-13. Now, the era of Tobias Harris (and terrible nicknames) has begun. It’s no surprise the Sixers already seem to be going up a gear. Through four games and 73 minutes for the new starting five, their net rating...
