Hollis Thompson 18 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2015)

Hollis “Alcohollis” Thompson was in a prolonged slumpy-wumpy for the whole first half of the season. After a promising rookie campaign where he alone managed to emerge from the stinking tar pits of the 76ers organization, his shooting regressed and his role was diminished in favor of other players. DownToBuck decrees: Thompson’s long nightmare of…

Robert Covington 22 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2015)

Robert Covington: the only good offensive player on the 76ers? You might be able to argue Michael Carter-Williams. Other than him, there is no one else who can actually put the orange into the actual bucket. Philadelphia’s roster constructions looks worse for not having Embiid and Saric this year, but it is still horrible. Covington…

Hollis Thompson Career High 23 Points Full Highlights (2/3/2015)

Hollis “Hlay” Thompson was one of the success stories for the Philadelphia 76ers last leason. Success being defined as “not absolutely horrible all the time”. He shot the three well, and I, at least, saw shades of Wes Matthews. It’s not like I saw MJ or Kobe in him or anything, but it’s something. Sadly,…

Jerami Grant 18 Points Full Highlights (2/2/2015)

Jerami Grant sat on the bench as he watched his teammates take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. He liked the playing time he was receiving lately, but sometimes it was just better to relax a bit on the sideline and appreciate the game for what it was. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute subbed out. Walking over…

Nerlens Noel 14 Points/”6 Blocks” Full Highlights (1/30/2015)

The boxscore for this game says that Nerlens Noel had six blocks. The tape tells a different story, with two of those blocks being quite clearly accomplished by Mbah a Moute and MCW respectively. I understand, scorekeepers. When a shot gets rejected and Nerlens is in the vicinity, it’s only natural to automatically give the…

JaKarr Sampson 13 Points Full Highlights (1/28/2015)

The locker room was a jubilant place after a blowout win over the Pistons. There was much laughter as the assorted Sixers discussed their plans for the evening. However, to the side, JaKarr Sampson sat silently, looking down at his lap. “Hey rook, what’s bugging you?” asked Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, noticing that the…

K.J. McDaniels 14 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (1/23/2015)

KJ McDaniels made his way to the back of the team plane, where Luc Mbah a Moute sat in a row by himself, reading an ebook. He took a seat next to his teammate, and then looked at him expectantly. Luc had noticed KJ’s approach, and determined that it was not his own responsibility to…

Michael Carter-Williams 27 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (1/21/2015)

10 out of 26 may seem like a bad shooting night, but in the context of Michael Carter-Williams’ shooting efficiency this year, it’s positively average! Man, these goalposts are just moving all over the place. What we should be impressed with is that MCW managed to get 7 assists while only committing 3 turnovers. How’s…

Jerami Grant 12 Points/3 Threes Full Highlights (1/19/2015)

“Luc, we got a problem, man.” Luc Richard Mbah a Moute looked up from tying his shoes. “What are you talking about?” Jerami looked sternly at his veteran teammate. “You remember that sex advice you gave me a few days ago?” Luc, who gave a lot of advice to everybody on the team, didn’t specifically…

Nerlens Noel 17 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (1/16/2015)

Nerlens Noel is a physical manifestation of the prototypical “super raw rookie prospect”. He’s long, he’s springy, and everything he does is made possible by his physical gifts rather than any abundance of basketball skill. He has not been a notable scorer in the NBA thus far, drawing the ire of some of the basketball…
