I think this performance by Dario Saric is the best of his career. I’m suffering very strongly from recency bias right now (I don’t even remember anything about when he scored 32 that one time), but I don’t care. Saric looked so damn good tonight. Has Embiid been holding him down? I thought it was Simmons, but maybe it was Embiid after all, because without him Saric had a dominant performance against the Knicks (okay, that makes this performance a little less impressive).
26 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists and not the lame kind either, the good kind. Everything was working for him, have you ever wondered what Simmons would be like with a jumper? Watch this video. Now you know.
I had my doubts about the 76ers going into the season, hopefully I didn’t express those doubts in a recordable format because I ended up being totally wrong about them. They’re good. Their young players are good for the most part, and they’re winning games on the back of them. I’m sorry for ever doubting.
