Winner of the clash against Denver two days ago, Joel Embiid’s Philadelphia was surprised on Monday night at home by Orlando (109-119). Pascal Siakam and Toronto were also dominated by the Suns of Bismark Biyombo (114-106).
Thirty points and 11 rebounds went in vain. Despite a great performance by Joel Embiid, the Sixers were surprised at home by Orlando (109-119). In the hard in the Eastern Conference, the Magic signs an important victory that could revive its season.
On the Philadelphia side, this unexpected defeat only two days after winning the shock against Denver leaves some regrets. “We played without any rhythm. We lost too many balls, we simulated to try to get fouls,” complained the coach of the Sixers, Doc Rivers.

Pascal Siakam and Toronto dominated by Phoenix
Not in a great night, Pascal Siakam could not prevent the defeat of the Raptors against the Suns (114-106) on Monday night, January 30. If he was the best player of his team on the floor, the Cameroonian was not at his level of recent weeks. Nineteen points and only 3 rebounds, that’s his record of the evening. Meager for a player who has become accustomed to crossing the 50-point mark lately.
On the Phoenix side, Bismack Biyombo knew the joy of victory but not the joy of having scored. The Congolese played 7 minutes on the floor for 0 points, 0 rebounds and a meager assist.
In the standings, the Suns continue their rise in the West and are now seventh.
