The Philadelphia 76ers got bumped by the Memphis Grizzlies by six points, 100-116, during their most recent match. The team rested Joel Embiid and paid a huge price. Tobias Harris did his best to lead the team with 21 points and eight rebounds while Shake Milton came off the bench with 14 points. Ben Simmons had an off night doing just seven points, seven rebounds and four assists.
