Richaun Holmes came off the bench to hit 7-of-12 shots for 15 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block before fouling out of Thursday's loss to the Raptors. He played very well despite not getting the start, as the Sixers went with Amir Johnson against his former team, as Joel Embiid (back) watched in street clothes for the third straight game. Holmes, and not Johnson, is who you want to roll with any time Embiid is out, whether he's starting or coming off the bench. Holmes is averaging 11 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in his last three games with Embiid sidelined, making him a nice handcuff to the oft injured big man, as well as a DFS option when Embiid is out. Embiid is iffy for Saturday in a rematch with the Raptors, but should be back for Christmas Day's matchup with the Knicks.
