In Jimmy’s return home, the Philadelphia 76ers got a much needed blowout win to extend the win streak to four.

In Josh Richardson‘s first game back from a short two-game hiatus, the Philadelphia 76ers extended their record to 11-5 and are on a nice four-game win streak. Behind Richardson’s 32 points, let’s dive in to who contributed the most to a much needed win.

Joel Embiid had himself a great game, totaling 23 points in just 25 minutes. A force in the paint, JoJo proved that tonight with 11 rebounds and two blocks

Big Al Horford had a nice outing as well, with 16 points and six rebounds. This is a VERY typical night for the silent assassin in the starting five.

Ben Simmons did not have the best game totaling just four points in 26 minutes. Sigh, another night without a 3.

Philadelphia 76ers. JOSH RICHARDSON. A+. <p style=. SG

A. <strong>| 25 Mins | 23 pts | 2 ast | 2 stl | 2 blk |11 reb | 2 TO | 8-15 FG | 2-3 3pt | 5-5 FT | 2 PF | +28 |</strong><p>A very nice game from the big fella, totaling 23 points in just 25 minutes. A nice outing from beyond the arc was much needed for the team’s focal point as well. With 11 rebounds and two blocks, Joel was certainly a force to be reckoned with in the paint.</p>. C. Philadelphia 76ers. JOEL EMBIID

B+. <strong>| 24 mins | 16 pts | 3 ast | 6 reb | 0 blk | 0 stl | 7-9 FG | 2-2 3pt | 0-0 FT | 1 TO | 1 PF | +33 | </strong><p>A solid game from Big Al obviously played a role in the great win for the Sixers. Shooting nearly perfect all night, Al also grabbed six boards and only had one turnover all night. Throughout the season, Al has proved to be a silent killer for the Sixers and greatly contributes to the team’s success.</p>. PF. Philadelphia 76ers. AL HORFORD

<strong>| 26 mins | 19 pts | 2 ast | 8 reb | 2 stl | 0 blk | 7-11 FG | 1-3 3PT | 4-5 FT | 1 TO | 2 PF | +38 |</strong><p>In a not bad outing for the $180 million man, Tobias shot decently well on the floor and swiped the ball two times as well. Compared to his last few games, this was a step down for Harris. However, this was certainly not a bad game at all and with a beautiful +38 plus/minus, Tobi helped fuel the team to victory.</p>. SF. Philadelphia 76ers. TOBIAS HARRIS. B-

D+. <strong>| 26 mins | 4 pts | 7 ast | 8 reb | 0 blk | 4 stl | 2-6 FG | 0-0 3pt | 0-0 FT | 0 TO | 4 PF | +34 |</strong><p>In a game you come to expect from Simmons, he did not score much himself but contributed to his teammate’s point totals instead. Not shooting very well from the field, not attempting a three, and not getting to the line damages Ben’s nightly grade. He had four fouls on him, but had a nice four steals and a very pretty +34 plus/minus. A certain off night for the star PG, it’s only expected that he bounces back sooner, rather than later.</p>. PG. Philadelphia 76ers. BEN SIMMONS

In what could’ve been a revenge game, it’s nice to see Jimmy Butler failed to show up, with just 11 points.
