James Harden led the 76ers to victory with 17 assists

James Harden scored 23 points and dished out 17 assists as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Washington Wizards 118-111 on Monday night despite Embiid's absence. During the night, seven matches were played in the NBA league, of which the triumphs of Philadelphia and Milwaukee are worth highlighting.

Philadelphia won 118:111 on the road at Washington, and the 76ers were led to victory by the great James Harden. “We keep saying we’re a work in progress," Harden said of his team per ESPN “We’re continuously trying to figure out great we can be.

And I’m glad we were going through a tough time. Everything isn’t great (when) you’re winning games. It just feels that way”. “I just keep pushing, keep trying to make my teammates better, keep trying to make the play and good things happen,” Harden said.

Joel Embiid absent

Given that Joel Embiid missed the match due to illness, the popular Beard took responsibility and led the team to victory, scoring 23 points and as many as 17 assists. “We obviously missed some shots, we didn't have great execution,” said Wizards coach Wes Unseld Jr.

“Just the urgency to start the second half, I don't think was there”. “Third quarters are huge. — they always have been,” said 76ers coach Doc Rivers. “When you can come out and stretch a game in the third quarter, it changes the dynamic of the game.

I would love us to be that type of team”. Milwaukee beat Detroit harder than expected at home with a score of 110:108 and remained the only undefeated team in the league. The Bucks were led to victory by the great Giannis Antetokounmpo with 31 points, while on the other side, Bojan Bogdanović scored 23 points.

Other results: Charlotte - Sacramento 108:115, Brooklyn - Indiana 116:109, Toronto - Atlanta 139:109, Utah - Memphis 121:105, LA Clippers - Houston 95:93.
