How bad are things getting in Philly? So bad that they lost by 51 to the Spurs….without Duncan, Manu and Kawhi Leonard!
Things got so bad that Boban Marjanovic got to play 17 minutes and tripled his career-high in points with 18. The 7’3 center connected on 8 of 10 shots which included an and-1 hook on Nerlens Noel, a dunk on Tony Wroten and a Hakeem-like double fake on Okafor before hitting a “jumper.” The worst part about it for the 76ers is the Philly fans were cheering for Boban.
As for rookie of year candidate Jahlil Okafor, he was just 3 of 14 from the field and finished with 10 points in 29 minutes.
