Tobias Harris hit the game-winner that allowed the 76ers to hand the Lakers their first loss on the road this entire season.
The Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers met up Wednesday in a battle of NBA elites. The Lakers entered with a 10-0 road record and things got physical midway through the game when LeBron James sent Joel Embiid crashing to the floor on what was deemed a flagrant foul.
The game was back-and-forth until the end, when Tobias Harris took it upon himself to send the 76ers home victorious.
Harris wins it for the 76ers
This was a clutch shot and a key reason why the 76ers acquired Harris in the first place. He scored 24, Embiid had 28, and Ben Simmons finished with 17 as the Lakers finally fell on the road.
The 76ers are now 13-6 this season and 10-1 at home. The Wells Fargo Center is a tough place to play now even without the usual wild atmosphere.
This game could be an NBA Finals preview and if so, this installment was a nice tease for what may come in the future.
