NBA Twitter reacts to Sixers falling to Rockets in James Harden’s return

The Philadelphia 76ers got some good news as they entered the Toyota Center on Monday to finish up the road trip against the Houston Rockets. They received word that James Harden would return to the lineup for the first time since Nov. 2 after he missed 14 games with a right foot tendon strain.

The Beard had 21 points, but he did not shoot the ball well. He shot only 4-for-19 from the floor with all four of his made field goals being from deep. He did shoot 9-for-10 from the free-throw line and he did have seven assists as the offensive flow for the Sixers looked good, but he also had seven turnovers in a 132-123 double overtime loss to the previously 6-17 Rockets.

Along with Harden’s efforts, Joel Embiid had 39 points and seven rebounds before fouling out and Tobias Harris added 27 points while drilling seven triples. All in all, it was a game the Sixers probably shouldn’t have lost and NBA Twitter had some reactions to the loss.
