Seth Curry leads the Sixers past the Bulls, and Tobias Harris gets an update.

Seth Curry has had the clutch gene since he was a child. Literally. He’s now proving to the world that he’s more than Stephen’s younger brother. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard scored 22 points to lead the Sixers to a 103-98 victory over the Bulls.

With 10.7 seconds left, he iced it with his wild Alex in Wonderland pull-up jumper. To further slam the door shut, Joel Embiid responded with a textbook block on DeMar DeRozan. Curry has 45 points in his last two games, and his season average is 16.4 points per game. After making two more three-pointers against Chicago, he now sits third in the NBA in three-point percentage (54.1%).

Philadelphia climbed to 6-2 on the season and won four straight games in their first homestand. They didn’t make it easy for themselves after blowing an 18-point lead, including a 12-point third-quarter deficit.

Curry deserves credit for coming to the rescue, as well as Georges Niang’s outstanding performance (18 points, 6-of-12). He may be the most underpaid basketball player. Embiid had a quiet 18 points and nine rebounds while playing with a hampered knee.

More impressively, the Sixers defeated the Eastern Conference’s best team while missing two starters. Danny Green sat out due to a day-to-day hamstring issue, while Tobias Harris sat out due to a COVID-19 positive test.

Furkan Korkmaz (11 points, five rebounds) and Matisse Thybulle (eight points, two blocks) were named to the starting lineup. Coach Doc Rivers was forced to use a reduced nine-man rotation and experimented with many small lineups. Everyone pitched in. Everyone took a stand.
