Josh Richardson stepped up with 34 points (13-of-20 FG), six assists and six triples on Sunday against the Blazers.
It was not enough for the Sixers to take home the victory, but it was still a welcome development after Richardson went 2-of-12 for five points on Friday. It's been a disappointing season as Richardson's defensive intangibles never traveled with him from Miami to Philadelphia, leaving him as just a late-round performer in 12-team formats. Perhaps he can make up for some lost time while Ben Simmons is out, but it's awfully late in the game for Richardson to salvage this season. Tobias Harris failed to step up in Joel Embiid's absence in comparison, going 7-of-19 from the field for 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers. Harris carries a solid mid-round floor, but it's an open question if he can step up and carry a heavier offensive load.
