Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Philadelphia 76ers game thread

Joel Embiid! Kyrie Irving!

NBA: Preseason-Washington Wizards at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavaliers continue their preseason run on Saturday night with the Philadelphia 76ers. Kyrie Irving, who sat for the first preseason game, a win over the Orlando Magic, will play tonight. I believe LeBron James will play as well. Tristan Thompson will miss his second preseason game with a sore foot, though apparently he’s been participating in practice and he should be fine.

The new-look 76ers won’t have Ben Simmons, maybe for the whole year, but do have Joel Embiid healthy and ready to go. He should play limited minutes tonight. Nerlens Noel is still in Philly as well, so there are a few guys who could have been Cavaliers who will suit up. Another Fear the Sword favorite, Dario Saric, has come across the Atlantic as well.
