On the other hand, Sacramento, third in the Western Conference, ended its six-game winning streak. Harrison Barnes (27 points, 6 3-pointers, 4 rebounds) and De’Aaron Pax (31 points, 4 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 steals) fought hard, but they could not overcome the aftermath of the defense collapse in the third quarter.
Philadelphia’s start was not smooth. He gave up 17 runs in 5 minutes from the start of the game and passed the early flow. Philadelphia pursued with Tobias Harris and Melton’s three-point shot, but it was not enough to face Sacramento, who showed an even score distribution.

Maxi showed off his breakthrough, but he was unable to block Sacramento’s firepower, which even the bench members were evenly involved in scoring. With Embiid’s vacancy, Philadelphia struggled despite Domantas Sabonis’ grip on the net, and ended the second quarter with a score of 64-74.
Philadelphia turned the tide in the third quarter. At the beginning of the third quarter, Maxie scored additional free throws and mid-range shots following a break through, and Philadelphia announced the chase by scoring five points in a row. Philadelphia, who made the third quarter score 38-22, finished the third quarter with a score of 102-96.
Philadelphia, which continued to lead a narrow lead in the fourth quarter, seized a last-minute victory in the fourth quarter. Philadelphia, which was chased by one point after showing poor shooting after the middle of the fourth quarter, put out the urgent fire with George Niang’s three-point shot. Then, 44.9 seconds before the end of the game, which led by 2 points, Maxi scored a breakthrough and again ran the gap to 4 points. Philadelphia later stopped Sacramento’s pursuit and continued to win five in a row after a close game.
