The Philadelphia 76ers are having an odd season with chemistry issues spewing out in the media for the past months. After being on a four-game winning streak from February 7-20, the Sixers have lost three of their last five games. They were in a tight battle two nights ago when they matched up against the Los Angeles Clippers as they lost by six points. It was a fair game since they played without Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Shake Milton was the big surprise as he broke out with 39 points while sinking seven three-pointers. Tobias Harris followed him up with 25 points.
