Lot of energy here inside Wells Fargo Center tonight as we get set for James Harden’s debut. People here have had a couple of weeks to get ready for this one, and should be an even more raucous crowd than usual as a result. – 7:38 PM

Philly crowd is jacked up for James Harden’s debut. – 7:34 PM

The Ringer @ringernba
“With Maxey, Harden, and Embiid, the Sixers have two stars and one rising star which could lead them to contention for years to come.” —@Kevin O’Connor

On this date in 1962, Wilt Chamberlain scored an NBA-record 100 points in a 169-147 Philadelphia Warriors win over the Knicks in Hershey, PA. He went 36-of-63 from the field and 28-of-32 from the line, which remain NBA records for most field goals and free throws made in a game. pic.twitter.com/UEWKV3hJqd6:45 PM

Feast, feast, feast.
Thanks to the attention James Harden draws, Tyrese Maxey has been feasting on weaker defenders and getting open shots off cuts, relocations, and his pure speed in transition. #TheVoidNBA

Matisse Thybulle on James Harden’s upcoming home debut: “I had people reaching out to me because tickets are impossible to get or you can’t afford them, they’re nonexistent. So I have a feeling it’s gonna be pretty crazy. People want to see greatness… – 2:27 PM

Jason Dumas @JDumasReports
Would be crazy if James Harden passed Reggie Miller for third on the all-time three pointer list tonight in Philly debut. Just needs six to pass him. – 2:24 PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
Feels ominous that the Knicks are in Philly tonight for the 60th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game — and it’s Harden’s home debut with the Sixers. The record can’t be broken…can it? No. I don’t think. – 2:23 PM

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Miles McBride still believes defense will be his bread and butter:
“Staying in front of elite guards is something I want to do and something I think I’m going to be able to do.”
