Not even 40 points from Joel Embiid was enough on Sunday as Philadelphia’s winless start to the NBA season continued, suffering a shock 114-105 loss to San Antonio.
The defeat saw the Sixers drop to 0-3 but given the first two losses came against championship contenders in Boston and Milwaukee, there was a delay on hitting the panic button.
The Spurs, on the other hand, are expected to join the tank train for likely top NBA draft pick Victor Wembanyama and had given up 266 points in their first two games this season.
It was an all-round team effort for San Antonio though, with six players hitting double digits in points, led by Keldon Johnson (21 points) and Devin Vassell (22).
