Doc sticking with the sub pattern of subbing Maxey out for Milton about halfway through the first quarter. Danny Green in there too for Thybulle. – 8:23 PM

TRIP JUST PUT DRUMMOND ON A POSTER! Trip with 5 early points for the Grizz – 8:12 PM
Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Korkmaz is either going to drop 37 or he’s going to go 1-14 from the field and I’m honestly not sure which one to expect. – 8:12 PM
Lang Whitaker @langwhitaker
Steven Adams’ streak of winning 13 consecutive opening tips is over after he won the tip but referee Eric Adams called for a do-over and Adams lost the follow-up attempt – 8:11 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
OH NO! Steven Adams has lost a tip. – 8:10 PM

Joel Embiid joins Seth Curry as a late scratch for the 76ers. Embiid has some rib soreness that will keep him out of tonight’s matchup. – 8:07 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
The Sixers say Joel Embiid won’t play tonight in Memphis with right rib soreness. Embiid got hit in the side early in Thursday’s loss to Utah, and dealt with pain there again in Saturday’s win over Golden State. – 8:07 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Maybe tonight will be the night Furkan Korkmaz breaks out of his slump. He’s shooting just 19.2% from deep on 4.2 attempts over his last 16 games. Maybe a start will help him get into a rhythm. #Sixers7:53 PM
Ja Morant @JaMorant
im tuned in gang 🐻 let’s get it – 7:51 PM
Memphis Grizzlies PR @GrizzliesPR
#GrizzliesOTD in 2014: Mike Conley scored 36 points, including the game-tying 3-pointer at the end of regulation, to help @Memphis Grizzlies defeat the Philadelphia 76ers 120-115 in overtime.
Memphis erased an 18-point deficit over the final 7 minutes of the 4Q to force OT. PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
The #Grizzlies have been Joel Embiid’s kryptonite. The #Sixers standout has averaged 13.3 points and shot 35.8% in six career games vs. #Memphis. That’s his lowest scoring average and shooting percentage against any #NBA team.
Does he go off tonight? – 7:44 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Starters for the Sixers:
Tyrese Maxey
Furkan Korkmaz
Matisse Thybulle
Tobias Harris

Seth Curry is a late scratch due to right shoulder soreness. – 7:42 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Seth Curry is officially out to hang due to right shoulder soreness. Furkan Korkmaz will start in his place alongside Matisse Thybulle, Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, and Tyrese Maxey. Danny Green continues to come off the bench. #Sixers7:33 PM

dressing well is a form of manners.

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Here is what 76ers coach Doc Rivers had to say about the Zach Randolph jersey retirement on Saturday night.
Completely unprompted. PM

Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Steven Adams is going through his pregame warm ups now. He’s currently questionable with an ankle sprain. If he’s out, Xavier Tillman figures to start in his place depending on JJJ’s status. PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Steven Adams (left ankle sprain), Jaren Jackson (left knee soreness) and Desmond Bane (left foot soreness) are all game-time decisions for the #Grizzlies vs. the #Sixers. #Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins said all looked at this morning’s shootaround. – 6:28 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Taylor Jenkins backs up @Ja Morant and @Dillon Brooks by saying that Desmond Bane should absolutely be in the conversation for Most Improved Player. – 6:23 PM
Philadelphia 76ers @sixers
we have some good home ones coming up. 👀

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
JJJ, Bane and Steven Adams will go through pregame before a decision is made whether they will play. – 6:20 PM
Joe Mullinax @sbnGrizzlies
Jenkins says JJJ, Steven and Bane had good sessions this morning and they’ll have an update after their pregame warm up. – 6:20 PM
Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers
Joel Embiid continues to improve as a 3-point shooter, bucking trends and bolstering the #Sixers perimeter attack… via @phillyinquirer – 6:06 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
They aren’t necessarily direct comparisons to one another, but Rudy Gay is shooting 41 percent on 5.0 threes per game this season with the Jazz while Georges Niang is shooting 39 percent on 5.1 attempts in Philly.
Replacing Niang’s shooting was a big question this summer. – 6:00 PM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
“We haven’t seen star players really be able to dictate their terms in trades…. Ben Simmons…I think he would love to be a Knick. He doesn’t have the ability to guide himself because of his contract.”
@Brian Windhorst talked NYK on The Putback last week: PM
Bob Garcia @bgarciaivsports
#Lakers simply can’t risk making a foolish trade for Ben Simmons.

The Suns, Warriors, Jazz, Nets and Bucks earned top billing, but which team belongs in ESPN’s Top 5 power rankings that wasn’t there this week?
The 76ers?
The Lakers?
I’m thinking the Grizzlies… PM

N.D. Kalu was blown away when he found out he was being inducted into S.A. Sports Hall of Fame:
“Everywhere I went, even when I went to Rice University, Philadelphia, I always carried San Antonio with me. I just have so much love for this city…It helped save me.” – 4:35 PM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Sources: The Sacramento Kings are not pursuing Indiana Pacers big men Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner, but Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons could still be a target as they look to trade Buddy Hield and Marvin Bagley III. Latest Kings trade talk⬇…3:50 PM
Justin Grasso @JGrasso_
Joel Embiid was an Eastern Conference Player of the Week nominee. Domantas Sabonis won it #Sixers3:39 PM

According to @Shams Charania, the Lakers are interested in both Ben Simmons & Jerami Grant.
