Sixers and Trail Blazers working through same growing pains following NBA trade deadline

Playing without All-Star center Joel Embiid, 76ers failed to cope with the on-fire Trail Blazers, whose five starters all reached double figures in scoring in the one-sided game. Since the 76ers acquired Harris in a deal before the National Basketball Association trade deadline, he has averaged 18.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists, while shooting 52 percent from the field.

Lillard had 17 points, Aminu 15, McCollum 13 and Harkless 13.

Even without Embiid, you would think the Sixers could compete at home against a good Blazers team that ended up shooting 5-23 from three.

The 76ers, who lost 129-95 at Portland on December 30, got 29 points from Ben Simmons, 20 from Tobias Harris and 15 from Jimmy Butler.

The new Portland rotation left Zach Collins and Meyers Leonard on the bench (Collins getting in briefly in garbage time).

The Sixers struggled in their second game without Embiid, the All-Star center who is expected to miss at least a week because of a sore left knee.

The Blazers went on to win 130-115, and Nurkic fired back after the game. He also had eight rebounds, giving him 17 boards in 40 minutes wearing a Blazers uniform. Nurkic had 10 of the 16. Trailing by six late in the second quarter, the Trail Blazers continued to be aggressive on the offensive glass and it paid off. Jake Layman's dunk off an alley-oop pass from Lillard extended the lead to 99-80, and the Blazers were up 100-82 going into the fourth.
