Philadelphia could do little to stop the Rockets' offense, as Houston scored 69 points in the second half and shot 56% from the field on the night. In addition to the hot shooting performance, Harden paraded to the free-throw line throughout the game, his 17-18 performance from the charity stripe equaling the free throws made by the Sixers as a team.
Toney Douglas supplemented Harden's night off the bench by shooting 5-8 from the three-point line en route to a 17-point night. Omer Asik added 17 points while grabbing a game-high 15 rebounds.
The Sixers were led by Nick Young and Dorell Wright, who combined for 41 points in 75 minutes off the bench.
