Sixers’ Utter Dominance Of Celtics Comes To Screeching Halt

Boston Celtics 101 Final
Recap | Box Score
90 Philadelphia 76ers
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, PF 34 MIN | 5-11 FG | 0-2 FT | 6 REB | 1 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 11 PTS | -3Like it or not, the 27-year-old Mbah a Moute is the veteran of this team. In the first half he was reliable veteran glue, hitting open shots, grabbing some boards, and actually playing the strong defense he’s (somewhat) known for. In the second half, K.J. McDaniels departed in favor of Luc after hitting a pair

Spurs Beat Sixers; Sky Is Blue

Philadelphia 76ers 75 Final
Recap | Box Score
100 San Antonio Spurs
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, PF 25 MIN | 4-10 FG | 3-4 FT | 4 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 2 BLK | 2 TO | 13 PTS | -4While defensively he’s definitely a useful rotation player, his offense is, well, not the best. Often times he ends up spotting up from mid-range or getting looks from long range in transition and for the most part it doesn’t end well. K.J. should be cracking the starting lineup regularly soon(ish), in which case we’ll

Sixers Back To Being Just Bad, JaKarr Sampson Is Anchovies

Philadelphia 76ers 87 Final
Recap | Box Score
88 Houston Rockets
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, PF 32 MIN | 2-7 FG | 2-2 FT | 9 REB | 0 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 6 PTS | -15The decision to consistently give Mbah a Moute 25-30 minutes a night is highly questionable. He’s frequently touted as a “defensive specialist,” but he has failed to live up to that expectation and brings essentially nothing offensively. K.J. McDaniels may soon start taking some of the veteran’s minutes.

Mavs Beat Sixers By 53 In Record-Setting Blowout

Philadelphia 76ers 70 Final
Recap | Box Score
123 Dallas Mavericks
Tony Wroten, SG 25 MIN | 3-7 FG | 3-6 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 5 TO | 11 PTS | -19Wroten put up 11 in a season-low 25 minutes, with Michael Carter-Williams back in the lineup. He took only two shots near the basket with Tyson Chandler in the paint, relying more on his outside shot. He and MCW were the Sixers’ only double-digit scorers.

Sixers Blown Out In Toronto

Philadelphia 76ers 88 Final
Recap | Box Score
120 Toronto Raptors
Tony Wroten, SG 32 MIN | 6-16 FG | 5-7 FT | 3 REB | 5 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 18 PTS | -26Wroten didn’t have as many electric moments as he had against Chicago and Orlando but he still led the team in scoring and limited the turnovers for the second game in a row. It’s hard to be too high on his performance when he’s the de facto leader of the team and the team loses by 32 points,

The Sixers Are Fun, Still Lose To Bulls

 

Chicago Bulls 118 Final
Recap | Box Score
115 Philadelphia 76ers
Henry Sims, C 26 MIN | 7-10 FG | 1-1 FT | 8 REB | 5 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 16 PTS | +17After an underwhelming start to the season, Sims finally looked like the player we all grew to love last year. He struggled a bit defensively against Chicago’s bigs, but it was encouraging to see Sims shoot with confidence against the reigning Defensive Player of the Year.

Tony Wroten, SG 34 MIN | 11-27 FG | 6-8 FT
