Sixers (+3) at Clippers (233), 10:30 p.m. (NBCSP)
There is no equation - scientific, algebraic nor basketballic - that has Jimmy Butler taking just 12 shots (that’s three per quarter) in a Sixers game when Joel Embiid doesn’t play . . . A few more Butler heaves weren’t going to make up the 34-point difference thrashing to the Trail Blazers, but when you are down one guy - The Guy - you put the ball in the right guy’s hand early and often. Truth be told, Butler should be taking more than 12 shots even in the games Embiid does play.
