The Philadelphia 76ers aren’t the laughing stock they have been, but they’re still bad and playing without Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. On Sunday night at the Staples Center they beat the Lakers for their 24th win of the season. That might not sound impressive but for the 76ers it is the best season in many years. The 76ers have actually been the best bet in the NBA the season winning 41 games ATS - that’s the most in the league this season.
However, Sunday night was less about the 76ers steps towards competence and more about the sad state of the Los Angeles Lakers. D'Angelo Russell earned himself a spot on the Shaqtin’ a Fool wall of fame/shame with whatever the hell this was.
