Thursday night’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers was a barnburner. The two young teams went back-and-forth all game, with the Sixers netting a 34-point fourth quarter just to keep things close.
The final two minutes came down to the wire, and Philadelphia was able to tie the game at 104 thanks to some clutch Joel Embiid free throws.
After a missed Lonzo Ball 3-pointer with 29 seconds to go, it was the Sixers’ chance to take the lead. They isolated Embiid, who wound up missing on an attempt from the left block.
That’s when the Lakers came down and scored the final bucket of the game thanks to a Ball drive down the baseline and a Brandon Ingram 3-pointer.
The Lakers beat the Sixers, 107-104.
