Between the two teams, the players to watch tend to be Joel Embiid of the 76ers facing the Piston's Andre Drummond as they have a history of trash talk. Griffin took advantage of Ben Simmons' absence. Jackson made both free throws.
Embiid becomes the first Sixers' player with three straight games with 30 or more points since Allen Iverson in 2006. An absence of defense in Milwaukee which included a second-quarter where Brett Brown's unit allowed almost 50 points, a treacherous cascade of bricks heaved from beyond the arc and a lack of rookie Markelle Fultz's presence amid crunch time in Detroit with Simmons sidelined by a back injury. With just over 40 seconds left in the game, Embiid scored a bucket over Drummond to put the Sixers up, 120-118. Embiid then missed an open three, but Bullock followed by missing a runner in the lane.
Markelle Fultz tied his career high with 13 points, knocking down a long two-pointer for the game's first points and later making his second career 3-pointer. JJ Redick added 19 points for the 76ers, who fell to 2-3. He played 24 minutes Monday and finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds in 27 minutes Wednesday. He is shooting just 40.5 percent from the floor and averaging under 10 points per game despite getting 25 minutes a night.
Even after his team lost, Embiid said of Drummond, "I think I own a lot of real estate in his head". Glenn Robinson III, acquired as a free agent from IN, did not play after logging 33 minutes combined IN the first two games.

Brown said Simmons is questionable for Wednesday at Milwaukee after leaving Saturday's game against Orlando in the first quarter.
Simmons said he felt good during warm-ups Wednesday and his back didn't bother him.
With solid wins over conference rivals such as the Philadelphia 76ers and Indiana Pacers already to their name, the Bucks are certainly sending something of an early message, and their schedule in the week ahead will only offer further opportunity to build on that. The Duke legend is averaging 21.8 points per game and making it further hard to justify playing the erratic and inconsistent Markelle Fultz.
