Seth Curry provides a much-needed spark for the Sixers in a win against the Orlando Magic

Seth Curry

The Philadelphia 76ers bounced back from their tough loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves with an important win against the Orlando Magic to bring them back in the winning column.

Seth Curry comes up big offensively

Before heading to another tough 4-game road trip, the Sixers beat the Magic at home 101-96, getting that much-needed win that pushed them into the 8th spot in the eastern conference. After battling with injuries and Covid-19, the Sixers finally had most of their team back on the roster for the game, which is a good sign for their fans. Even though the Sixers were leading the majority of the game, the Magic were fighting back and even at one point leading the game, but soon Seth Curry happened who led the way for the Sixers with 24 points.

After the game, Seth Curry talked about his confidence coming into this game and the trust he received from his teammates when he started making one shot after the other.

"It's always high, when I get a good look, I expect to make it, so both of those times I got good looks at the basket, we needed some, we needed to stop the run, and we needed a big bucket, and so the ball found me in good spots and was able to knock it down."

Taking time to adjust as a team

The Sixers are now finally back at full power, but it will take them some time to adjust to having Embiid back, who didn't play well offensively, but his presence on defense proved to be crucial. Curry talked about the adjustment of having their star player back on the floor again and getting the offense flowing in the right way.

"Maybe, we should know how to play with each other, but no, I mean maybe there's a little adjustment getting used to playing with him again, and we just gotta figure it out and try to win games in the process. Watch the film and figure some stuff out at practice and try to apply that to the game. You know, offensively we gotta figure out how to get back into ball movement, get back to getting into the lane, finding good shots, and not being too stagnant. So just watch the film, figure it out and try to go on the road and get some good wins."

The Sixers will now have a tough road game ahead of them, facing a few playoff-contending teams that are looking to improve their standings coming into the New Year. The good thing for the Sixers, just like Doc Rivers said, is that this road trip will serve as a test of who they are as a team. On top of that, it will help them get adjusted to each other and see how players respond to each other, especially on offense. If things start clicking for the Sixers, there is no question they can beat every team on the road before finally coming back to play in front of their hometown crowd.
