The first points of the game between the Nets and 76ers came off a dunk by Brook Lopez over Nerlens Noel. The final points of the game came off a dunk by Nerlens Noel to give the 76ers a two point win and their 6th of the season.
“A lot of credit to Michael for creating,” Noel said. “He got by his defender and I saw him driving my way. I found an open spot and he was able to find me and I finished.”
“I knew I wanted to penetrate the defense and either see if I could get a shot at the basket or a pull-up,” Carter-Williams said. “But once I saw the defense coming to help on me — and Nerlens made a great play by finding the open area — I knew he’d have a good chance of scoring.”
Noel finished the game with 12 points, 5 rebounds and 2 blocks. Lopez had 18, 6 , 2 and a jump shot that tied the game before Noel’s dunk.
