Sixers snap home winning streak on a night Kendall Jenner watched courtside
The Philadelphia 76ers’ 10-game winning streak at home came to a halt, Friday. The Sixers were stopped by the last-placed Cleveland Cavaliers, who just won their third game of the season. A familiar face was present at the Wells Fargo Center during the game. It was none other than celebrity and model Kendall Jenner.

Is it simply a coincidence that the Sixers dropped this one with her presence courtside? Or are they jinxed because of that fact? For what it’s worth, the game also featured a matchup of Kendall Jenner’s former boyfriends in Ben Simmons and Jordan Clarkson. How’s that for billing a game?
One thing for sure is that Philadelphia is no longer undefeated in their own turf. They’ve defended their home pretty well this season with a 10-1 record — a stark contrast to their road record of 3-7.
The Sixers are now a heavy contender in the Eastern Conference. Their struggle days can now be a thing of the past with the presence of All-Star Joel Embiid and reigning Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons.
In this loss, the Sixers surrendered 37 points in the final 12 minutes of the game. Three Cavs players also scored 20 or more points in their 121-112 win. Rodney Hood, Collin Sexton, and Cedi Osman recorded 25, 23, and 20 points, respectively for the Cavs.
It was impressive, especially for a team like the Cavaliers to beat a tough opponent such as the Sixers in Philadelphia.
Embiid led the way for the Sixers with 24 points and 12 rebounds. JJ Redick, Ben Simmons, and Jimmy Butler added 23, 22, and 22, respectively.
