Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner, score, and high scorer in the 76ers-Trail Blazers game. Portland won 118-114 and Joel Embiid had a game-high 35 for Philly.
No one had the Blazers (including Sports Section; whoops, at least we nailed the over). But kudos to Michael Alper (@mikealper) for predicting Embiid would lead all scorers.
