Jimmy Butler couldn't stop 76ers collapse in Philadelphia debut

But what will need to change is Philadelphia's late-game offense.

Elton Brand knew there were plenty of risks when trading for Jimmy Butler, and the Philadelphia 76ers general manager isn't 100 percent confident the acquisition will pan out.

Redick, Philadelphia really doesn't have any players who can stretch the floor for them. "Not the outcome we wanted to have". We have to get away from the times when we get away from ball movement and we get away from running back. "I think I'm an incredible human being, teammate, and I will show that to the guys here".

"Once (Butler) made the request, we got a lot of calls from all over the league, which is normal", Thibodeau said.

Isaac, whose brief National Basketball Association career has been filled with stops and starts because of a series of ankle injuries, will be back in action tonight following a six-game lay off when the Magic (6-8) face the new-look 76ers (9-6) at Amway Center. But after Embiid hit a 3-pointer to make it 92-76 with 10:52 to go, Orlando went on a 21-0 run in a span of 4:09 to retake the lead.

Butler said he has talked to 76ers young stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid and dismissed the fact there might be issues with the two, as there was with Towns and Wiggins. He struggled to assert himself in the game and no doubt we won't see too many more games where he takes such a low amount of shots.

On the other hand, Butler puts the Sixers (on paper) in the same tier as Boston, Toronto and Milwaukee.

Prior to Wednesday's game, Brown insisted Fultz would remain a part of the team's plans moving forward, and Brown was good to his word against the Magic. Isaac cleared his final hurdle with an individual workout on Thursday and he'll play tonight - albeit with a minutes' restriction.

Redick led the 76ers with 22 points.

Evacuations are highest across Los Angeles County, with 170,000 across the county evacuated from their homes by officials. Chaplains accompanied some coroner search teams that visited dozens of addresses belonging to people reported missing.

As expected, though, this will be a work in progress. Butler's offensive rating this season of 122 would easily be the best on the Sixers this year, with the current highest being Embiid's 114. The betting line is in Philadelphia's favor in this one.

Butler says that, despite the amount of attention that's been given to what his next move would be, his focus never wavered. That's how I'm going to do it.

Butler will make his Wells Fargo Center debut with the Sixers on Friday against the Utah Jazz.

"We hope he sees a fit here".
