The Philadelphia Sixers dropped their eighth in a row in a 127-106 beatdown Wednesday night at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks, but rookie forward Richaun Holmes skied over Al Horford for one of the best dunks so far this season.
The Hawks snapped a three-game losing streak, with Paul Millsap (21 points) and Jeff Teague (18 points) leading the way.
Philly is now 0-16 on the road, and 1-26 overall.
Per the AP:
“This year we’ve been up and down so much as a team,” Horford said. “This is a great opportunity for us to start being more consistent and really build those good habits that we had last year.”
Isaiah Canaan finished with a season-high 24 points and Jahlil Okafor had 19 for Philadelphia.
Horford scored 17 and Dennis Schroder 16 for the Hawks. […] “Offensively we played harder, we cut harder, we screened harder,” Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “We moved the ball with pace.”
