Sixers Don’t Lose By 40

Philadelphia 76ers 100 Final
Recap | Box Score
105 Utah Jazz
Thaddeus Young, PF Shot Chart 37 MIN | 7-13 FG | 4-6 FT | 5 REB | 2 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 19 PTS | +5Another efficient scoring game for Thad (19 points, 7-13 FG), but he was out-hustled by Marvin Williams on the glass (14 rebounds).

Evan Turner, SF Shot Chart 34 MIN | 9-18 FG | 3-4 FT | 5 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 21 PTS | -118 points on 21 shots isn’t awe-inspiring stuff, but he shot 50 percent from the field, took the ball to the basket, and worked on defense.

Michael Carter-Williams, PG Shot Chart 37 MIN | 6-13 FG | 7-9 FT | 5 REB | 8 AST | 2 STL | 3 BLK | 3 TO | 19 PTS | +19An active, aggressive MCW kept the 76ers in the game in the first half. He attacked Utah’s bigs in the paint and got to the stripe nine times.

James Anderson, SG Shot Chart 39 MIN | 5-10 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 2 AST | 4 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 15 PTS | +5Another solid outing from beyond the arc but defensively, it was a mixed bag. Gordon Hayward was held to a 3-17 shooting but Anderson didn’t find the same success guarding Alec Burks (no one did tonight), who dropped 26 points.

Tony Wroten, SG Shot Chart 18 MIN | 0-0 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 0 PTS | -2618 minutes. 0 points. 0 shot attempts. 1 turnover. -26 on the night. Anything else you need to know?

By the numbers: 28-32 (87.5%). Utah’s free-throw numbers.

Tweet of the game:


Parting shots: MCW may have won the rookie-point-guard- duel with Trey Burke, but Alec Burks was the real winner. The third-year guard scored 26 points on 10 shots, hitting 13-14 from the line, and making play after play down the stretch. At least this one wasn’t over by halftime?

Buckle up, it’s going to be a long final 28 games.
