Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Just a ridiculous coast-to-coast move by Joel Embiid, ending with a massive dunk. Embiid already has nine points in this game in eight first quarter minutes. – 7:27 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Embiid came down hard on Mitchell there – 7:26 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Sheesh! A 7-foot man should not be able to do what Joel Embiid just did #Sixers7:26 PM

Lots of shots going thru the hoop early — Sixers 8-11, Jazz 6-9. Embiid 7p for Philly, as Rudy’s mostly been content to let him shoot long jumpers, and he’s mostly hit. Don leads the Jazz with 6p. Sixers up 19-17 with 6:26 left 1Q. – 7:21 PM

That’s a fun few minutes of basketball. Jazz are so tough to guard. – 7:21 PM

An offensive showing so far, with the Sixers holding a 19-17 lead over the just with 6:26 still left in the first quarter. Embiid (7) and Curry (5) combined to score the first 12 points for the Sixers, with Harris and Maxey picking it up after that. – 7:20 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Mitchell looks to have hurt his hand on an Embiid screen… Jazz having troubles getting around his screens early. – 7:20 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
6:26 remaining in the first quarter. The Jazz trail the Sixers 19-17….Philly shooting 73 percent so far from the field…..embiid with seven points early – 7:20 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Joel Embiid has 7 of Philly’s 10 points to start. It really looks like he wants Rudy Gobert. He wants to make life miserable for him. #Sixers7:17 PM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
“We like to see this early.”

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Quin Snyder said that regardless of how productive the Jazz offense is right now, the focus for optimizing the attack remains the same: good spacing, making quick decisions, and limiting turnovers to lessen the need for transition defense. – 5:47 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Quin Snyder, on the Wolves’ criticism of Rudy Gobert: “Everybody’s entitled to their views and opinions. From my standpoint, every team’s game plan is based on how to attack Rudy. Or how not to attack Rudy. … Sometimes we’re having to find ways to get him involved defensively.” – 5:42 PM

Asked about the Jazz, Doc said he’s starting to see them play like they did last season. Praised Donovan Mitchell for putting so much stress on defenses, noted Rudy Gobert is getting increasingly aggressive offensively, said he continues to see improvement from Jordan Clarkson. – 5:24 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Doc Rivers says that he’s happy with where the 76ers are at. He said the best news he received today was when he walked in and was told no one was on the injury report — said now they hope/goal is for that to stay the same so his team can build some continuity. – 5:23 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
The Utah Jazz are legit and they’re not even knocking down their threes like they were last season (they might be better).
All but one of their 17 wins this season have been by six or more.
Since the beginning of Nov (9-2) six of their nine wins have been by at least 16 points – 4:15 PM

Since the 2016-17 season the Utah Jazz have won 63% of their games which ties Milwaukee for the best winning percentage in the NBA.
If winning matters? Maybe who you guard matters more – 1:57 PM

Some Rudy Gobert notes in case some people forgot
Rudy Gobert contests 19 shots a game (most in the NBA) Over last 10 games contesting 20 a game.
Gobert is on the floor for 59 opponent shots a night. He contests 34% of all opponents shots.
The impact of his contest next .. – 1:30 PM
Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Outside of Grant Riller (shoulder), the Sixers have a clean injury report, which is a pretty rare occurrence. Only entries other than Riller are the guys in the G League (Aaron Henry, Paul Reed, Jaden Springer) and Ben Simmons (you know). – 1:10 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
Mike Conley not on the Utah Jazz injury report on a back end of back to back – 1:08 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
No Mike Conley on the Utah Jazz injury report. He’s good to go for tonight
Hassan Whiteside is QUESTIONABLE for tonight in Philly against the sixers – 1:06 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Mike Conley, notably, is not on the injury report. He played just 24 minutes last night. Appears he’ll play in both ends of the back to back. – 1:05 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Mike Conley is not on the Jazz’s injury report for today so seems likely he’ll be playing against the Sixers – 1:04 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Hassan Whiteside still has some pain in his behind. He remains questionable with a bruised glute. – 1:04 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Hassan Whiteside is listed as questionable vs. Philadelphia tonight. Mike Conley, interestingly enough, is not on the injury report for the back-to-back. – 1:03 PM
