With only seven players available for the Philadelphia 76ers, Tony Bradley figured to get into a game for only the second time this season. He took advantage of the chance in the Sixers’ 115–103 home loss to the Denver Nuggets.

In 24 minutes, Bradley, a member of UNC’s 2017 NCAA championship team, collected 11 points and a career-high 15 rebounds. It was his third NBA double-double and first since getting 15 points and 11 rebounds Aug. 7 for the Utah Jazz against the Sacramento Kings. For the season, Bradley has 23 rebounds in 39 minutes.

Out for Saturday’s game for the Sixers were Seth Curry (positive COVID-19 test), Joel Embiid (injury) and Ben Simmons (injury.) Mike Scott was the eighth player in uniform but wasn’t available to play.

Danny Green also scored 11 points for Philadelphia but had a horrible shooting day to get there, making only 4 of 17 shots and 2 of 7 3-point attempts.

Cameron Johnson had another solid game with a 12.7 game score for the Phoenix Suns in their 125–117 win at Indiana. In 29 minutes, he had 16 points, four rebounds and a season-high four assists. That also tied his career-high in assists, after he dished out four assists twice last season. It was his fourth game with four 3-pointers.

Orlando lost its second consecutive road game in Texas with Cole Anthony starting at point guard, falling at Dallas 112–98. In 32 minutes, Anthony had eight points, three assists and two turnovers.

Harrison Barnes tied for his lowest scoring output of the season with 10 points (also Dec. 26 vs. Phoenix) and had seven assists in the Sacramento ‘s 125–99 home loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. In six minutes, Nassir Little had three points and two rebounds for Portland.
