Following two dominant wins over the New York Knicks, the Philadelphia 76ers returned to their home...

court on Friday night to face the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time this season. 

A few weeks back, when the Sixers hosted the Cavs, a 40-point effort from Joel Embiid allowed Philadelphia to come away with an impressive win.

As expected, the Cavaliers were out for revenge on Friday, 

and they were a handful for the Sixers right out of the gate.  

In the first quarter, Cleveland shot nearly 75-percent from the field and 80-percent from three. 

With the Sixers playing passive on defense, they couldn’t keep up with the Cavs as 

Cavs as   they were outscored 43-30 in the first quarter of action. 

As the veterans combined for 17 points 

they helped the Sixers outscore the Cavaliers 33-28 before heading into halftime.
