NBA Twitter reacts to Nikola Jokic, Nuggets beating short-handed Sixers

The Philadelphia 76ers were looking to end this grueling stretch of having to play seven of eight games on the road on the right note on Monday when they took on the Denver Nuggets. Unfortunately, they had to go to battle by missing James Harden and Joel Embiid.

That ended up costing them as they fell behind as many as 22 against the No. 1 seed in the West. While a spirited effort by the bench unit allowed Philadelphia to end up cutting the deficit to three late, they did end up falling 116-111 to the Nuggets for their third consecutive loss. It did appear that Nuggets forward Jeff Green stepped out of bounds with Denver up 114-111 before the officials called a foul on Jalen McDaniels, but when the Sixers challenged the foul call, the officials ruled that it stood.

Without Embiid, the Sixers couldn’t contain two-time MVP Nikola Jokic enough as the Denver star finished with 25 points, 17 rebounds, and 12 assists. He was masterful for the Nuggets in this one.

For Philadelphia, Tyrese Maxey had 29 points with 25 coming in the first half, Tobias Harris had 16, and Paul Reed had 16 and nine rebounds. McDaniels had 14 points and was a part of the group that cut the deficit to three late.
