Despite a fast start by the 76ers on Wednesday, Oklahoma City, behind second year guard Jeremy Lamb’s 32 points, proved to be too much for the Curry & Co. and prevailed 74-62.
Game 3 was like watching two Olympic sprinters start out at an even pace, only to watch the opposing sprinter blow by you and there isn’t much you can do about it.
Most people when given the option choose to hear the good before the bad, so first let’s go over the positives from today’s game. It was easily the best defensive performance of the week for the Sixers, allowing only 74 points and forcing 23 turnovers. Philadunkia’s home team also out rebounded Oklahoma 30 to 27 thanks in part to the extended minutes of rookie Arsalan Kazemi. Kazemi finished the game with 29 minutes, 6 points, 3 assists and 9 rebounds but not all of what he does reflects on the stat sheet.
