76ers fans and players alike can breathe a sigh of relief now that the team has gotten their first win under their belts. After a heart-breaking overtime loss to the Washington Wizards Tuesday night, the Sixers looked re-energized in Wednesday night’s contest, blowing out the Indiana Pacers 101-75 at the WFC.
The 76ers formula for success was simple: get out in transition, control the boards and attack the basket. The 7-6 out-rebounded the Pacers 54-46, had more fast break points 24-10 and points in the paint 46-34. For a 76ers team that is usually mismatched in the frontcourt it was great to see them dominate the paint and boards in a win.
Moving forward we have to continue to attack the basket the way we did, limiting ourselves to only 12 three point attempts while managing to get to the foul line 25 times (made 21). The tone was set early on in the contest when the 76ers jumped to an early lead.
