In his first appearance, James Horton did not disappoint with Philadelphia 76, adding 27 points and 12 assists to lead hosts Minnesota Timberwolves to a 133-102 victory in the NBA on Friday.
Horton, the 2018 NBA player, made his first game with the Sixers on a big deal before closing the transfer window on February 10, after coming from the Brooklyn Nets.
He made up for the period he missed due to a muscle injury, and he was particularly isolated from outside the arc, where he hit 5 throws in 7 attempts.
When Philadelphia expanded its hosts lead to 24 points in the last quarter, Cameroon’s Joel Embide expressed his satisfaction with his new team.
Before the match, the giant Embiet praised the upcoming striker, saying, “He’s a wonderful man, always smiling. It’s nice to be here. Being on the team and on the field has changed a lot of things since he came.
He also expressed his delight after playing with “The Beard”: “He made balls for all of us, shot, made balls, you may have noticed through my facial expressions. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before.
For his part, Horton, who has scored three times as much in the league as the best player in the league, said he would be happy to play behind candidate Empide.
Empit was the top scorer for the Sixers with 34 points and 10 rebounds, and Dyers Maxi added 28 points, bringing Philadelphia to third place in the Eastern Province with 36 wins and 23 defeats.
With Horton’s arrival, Philadelphia hopes to rise further and compete with the Miami Heat (39-21) and the Chicago Bulls (39-21) for the Eastern lead.
