Utah Jazz Versus Philadelphia 76ers Post Game Grades
The Philadelphia 76ers sixth game of the season resulted in a loss to the Utah Jazz by a huge margin: 109-84. Here are the grades of the starters plus sixth man
The Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Utah Jazz Monday evening November 7, 2016 by the heartbreaking score of 109-84.
The team never really put up a threat of winning this contest. The Utah Jazz are a solid defensive team, and the struggles of the Philadelphia 76ers to score simply played right into the Jazz’s strength.
It was almost a reverse of fortunes from last game, where the team walked onto the court to face the Cleveland Cavaliers with little hope, but played just shy of a victory. In this contest, there was plenty of hope for perhaps their first victory. But the Utah Jazz snuffed those hopes early, and the Philadelphia 76ers never really had a chance. The Jazz outplayed and outscored the Philadelphia 76ers in each quarter.

Okafor had been making sigificant progress in defense so far this season, but in tonight’s lineup, he seems to have regressed. While he is still building up his playing minutes (from 30 minutes per game last season to just over 18 minutes this season), he showed once more tonight why his scoring is a needed ingredient on this team.

In the end, it was a blowout. That is disheartening for a team which appeared to be making significant progress with each game. The 76ers will try again tomorrow night as they face the Indiana Pacers.
