Philadelphia 76ers vs Pelicans: Odds| Picks| Highlights

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Zion Williamson took advantage of Joel Embiid’s absence and punished the Philadelphia 76ers in the paint.

Williamson scored 33 points, making all but one of his 12 shots, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Sixers 124-114 on Wednesday night.

“He was great. He attacked the basket,” Pelicans coach Willie Green said. “Getting to the paint was something we were big on.”

The 7-foot Embiid was ruled out shortly before tip-off due to illness, leaving Philadelphia to manage without its leading scorer, who is averaging 32 points this season and giving the Sixers a strong defensive presence in the paint. Also gives.

The Philadelphia 76ers did themselves no favors on Wednesday as they started their matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans in about the worse way one could imagine.

Joel Embiid was ruled out about a half-hour before tipoff and the Sixers were unable to recover from a 124-114 loss to the Pelicans. Tyrese Maxey led Philadelphia with 33 points, but Philadelphia got off to a bad start.

The Pelicans shot a ridiculous 77.8% from the floor in the first quarter and led by 18 points in the opening frame. That’s not exactly a recipe for success in the NBA, even if Embiid is a late starter.
