Hayes: The Sixers' talent is obvious, as are the obstacles
In the preseason opener Tuesday night against the Celtics, giant center Joel Embiid worked through three post moves and scored his first basket as a professional, blocked a dunk at the top of the square, then hit a 24-footer.
Silky forward Dario Saric hit two three-pointers and scored 10 points.
Paul may make it hard for Sixers to cut him
AMHERST, MASS. – It’s still early, but if Brandon Paul can string together a couple more games like Tuesday night’s performance, the 76ers will have to think long and hard before releasing him.
The free-agent signee came off the bench to score a game-high 15 points in the Sixers’ 92-89 preseason victory over Boston at the University of Massachusetts’ Mullins Center.
