Meanwhile, Jimmy Butler does exactly what the Sixers brought him to Philly to do in Charlotte: burying a game-winning 3 to overshadow Kemba Walker's 60-point game and give Philly an overtime win.

Butler: 'So much more fun' playing with 76ers

Jimmy Butler was effusive in praising his 76ers teammates after Friday night's win over the Jazz, saying, "Basketball is just that easy. With this group of guys, it is really easy."

Markelle Fultz on his new approach at the free throw line: "Yeah it's something I added right now. Just trial and error. It's been working nice for me so I'm going to stick with it for now." Fultz said he feels comfortable with the free-throw style, in which he shuffles the ball back and forth between his hands before shooting.

Joel Embiid said he hurt his hand early in Friday's win over the Jazz. He said his hand has been hurting on and off since last season when he injured it against the Suns. Embiid said his hand was swollen after the Sixers' win but he expects to play Saturday night.

Ben Simmons converging a layup late in the fourth to give Philadelphia a lead and getting fouled by Donovan Mitchell had to be meaningful. Mitchell and Simmons had a public battle over the Rookie of the Year award last season.

Quite a sequence to finish the third quarter for Philly: with his unorthodox free-throw approach, Markelle Fultz made one of two from the line. He got the rebound of his miss and fed Jimmy Butler who converted a layup and got fouled. He made the free throw to give the Sixers a one-point lead heading into the fourth.
