PHILADELPHIA -- The Cavaliers were led by a high scoring backcourt in tonight's game versus Philadelphia. Rookie guard Collin Sexton seemed to be in a groove all night, scoring 23 points. Rodney Hood led all scorers with 25 points, and Cedi Osman added 20 points. Jordan Clarkson provided a much needed spark from the bench, scoring 14 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter alone.
The Cavs entered tonight in the midst of a 3-game losing streak, but showed some improvement in the previous game versus the Lakers. Philadelphia entered the night undefeated at home, and the Cavaliers did the unthinkable, cruising past Philly on the road. This marks the 76er's first home loss since March 13th.
Despite seeing constant double teams, Joel Embiid scored 24 points and secured 12 rebounds. Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler each scored 22 a piece, Reddick added 23 points.
Cleveland will travel back home to play game two of the late November back-to-back tomorrow night versus the Houston Rockets. Tip-off set for 7:30 pm at Quicken Loans Arena.
