The Philadelphia 76ers looked dead in the water at home on Friday night. They trailed the Los Angeles Clippers by 20 points in a big step up in competition from recent matchups. They haven’t seen a team like the Clippers and they looked dazed and confused.

Instead of folding and taking a loss, they dug deep and they rallied to win it 119-114. The Sixers completed a very impressive 7-0 homestand and they now are sitting at 19-12 after a very dreadful start to the season. It now sets up a very big showdown on Christmas with the rival New York Knicks.

James Harden had a helluva night by going for 20 points, a career-high 21 assists, and 11 rebounds for Philadelphia. The 21 assists tie a franchise record for most in a game with Mo Cheeks and Wilt Chamberlain.

Of course, Joel Embiid had a big game with 44 points with seven rebounds and NBA Twitter was set ablaze with their reactions after the win.
