76ers basketball: 2 players run past the ball while the 3rd puts on his shoes
There’s not a single reason to why the 76ers are so bad but here’s a play that only a really bad team could make.
Blake Griffin misses a jumper and the ball bounces in front of 3 76ers, although one of them is Tony Wroten who is still having shoe problems (remember the exploding Jordans?), and somehow two of them run right past it and Chris Paul, who was a good few feet behind them, was able to get the ball and throw an alley-oop to a wide-open DeAndre Jordan.
That assist was one of the 12 by Paul who also had 24 points and 8 rebounds in just 30 minutes in the 36 point beatdown on the very bad 76ers.
But in the 76ers defense (no pun intended) they were hanging in the game for most of the first 3 quarters but were outscored 39-17 in the 4th.
“This happens kind of regularly,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said. “We play for 36 minutes and can’t sustain it.”
