Winners of three straight and seven of eight overall, the Philadelphia 76ers will try to improve to 10-0 at Wells Fargo Center this season when they host the Utah Jazz on Monday night. Philadelphia (14-6) turned up its defensive intensity of its most recent win, as Ben Simmons had three steals in the final 13.9 seconds of Saturday’s 119-116 home victory against the Indiana Pacers.

“I love being able to get steals and turn guys over,” Simmons said. “I take pride in it and it gives us energy.” The 76ers will hope to get Josh Richardson back from injury. The shooting guard has missed the past two games with a right hamstring strain.
