In their last encounter, the Philadelphia 76ers played the best team of the season, the Phoenix Suns, which was classified as a battle between two numero uno teams in the respective conferences. While having the newly formed duo of James Harden and Joel Embiid, the Suns have emerged as a force to be reckoned with since Chris Paul teamed up with Devin Booker.
Both teams secured their postseason spots, so finding the right form was crucial for both sides in this competition. While the 76s held tight through the fourth quarter, Chris Paul and DBook inspired the Suns in clutch moments to secure their 8th consecutive win. On the downside, a loss sent Harden’s 76ers down to fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

James Harden refuses to shake hands with Chris Paul
Given that the NBA always has former teammates locking horns together, their new tee’s jersey is dawning. It was a similar story for James Harden and Chris Paul, but this time the former MVP chose not to salute the Veterans Guard after the clock ran out. Captured on camera, fans couldn’t help but think why?
Whatever the case for the Bart and the Point God, both of them at least reached the 2021-22 NBA offseason with different teams. To get everyone on the same page, Paul and Harden were teammates at Houston Rockets, where they were close to emerging as conference winners until the Golden State Warriors decided to underscore their authority.
Nonetheless, while discussing the recent duel between the 76ers and the Suns, Chris Paul recorded a great double-double with 19 points and 14 assists. On the other hand, Harden was also missing an assist with 14 points to pull off a double-double. The bigger story of this encounter, however, was Joel Embiid versus Devin Booker. The former posted a game-high 37 points, but it was Booker’s 35 that came more handy for his team in the 114-104 win.
