Richaun Holmes made 6-of-12 from the floor and 2-of-3 from the line for 14 points with three boards, three assists and a block on Saturday in 18 minutes off the bench.
Joel Embiid missed this game, and as expected Holmes saw an increase in minutes. Amir Johnson got the start and played 22 minutes, but Holmes had the better night. Embiid was only out for rest and should be in the lineup on Sunday so Holmes will probably go back to limited minutes, if not a DNP. He’s a luxury stash in most leagues, but nights like this offer us a glimpse of what he could do if he ever gets near the 30-minute mark.
