|Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, PF 40 MIN | 6-21 FG | 6-9 FT | 14 REB | 5 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 18 PTS | +4 +/-
A double-double for Embiid’s sitter was blemished by 28% shooting from the field and 0-3 from deep. If Luc would pump the brakes on his shot selection, he would be much more effective offensive player for this team.
|Nerlens Noel, C 40 MIN | 3-10 FG | 2-4 FT | 13 REB | 1 AST | 4 STL | 5 BLK | 5 TO | 8 PTS | +12 +/-
A solid night for #4, but after his 7-7 outing vs. Toronto I expected a little more on the offensive end. 5 blocks and 4 steals (strip of Westbrook at end of regulation was huge) were great, but he also posted 5 TOs last night.
|Isaiah Canaan, PG 42 MIN | 10-16 FG | 3-3 FT | 7 REB | 6 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 31 PTS | +5 +/-
We finally got to see the “bullseye shooter” version of Canaan that all the scouts have been talking about. He opened the game Canaan 5-of-5 on 3-pointers and drained 8 total on the day which produced a career high 31 points. Additionally Canaan had only 3 TOs.
|Jason Richardson, SG 36 MIN | 8-19 FG | 9-9 FT | 6 REB | 3 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 29 PTS | +17 +/-
Back in October if you had told me that JRich would play 36 minutes in a games this season for the Sixers, I would have bet any amount of money against that idea in a minute and laughed. If you next told me he would score 29 points in a game for the Sixers this season I would have checked you into a mental health facility.
|JaKarr Sampson, SG 15 MIN | 2-3 FG | 3-3 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 7 PTS | -4 +/-
There is nothing wrong with the way Sampson played last night. I just figured in an up and down, high scoring game that an athlete like Sampson would produce a better stat line. Of course that can be difficult when you only get 15 minutes of burn.
