Coming into Thursday’s game in Salt Lake City, the 76ers had lost five of their last six games, bringing coach Brett Brown’s record to a dismal 54-222 over four seasons in Philadelphia. “The amount of games they’ve lost over that time period is always going to be frustrating,” said Ingles, whom Brown coached for four years on the Australian national team. “… [But] I think he’s probably the best guy for that job, to rebuild a team.”

When he was asked the question this week, Joe Ingles didn’t hesitate with his answer. Does the Utah Jazz forward have any desire to be in the 3-point contest at all-star weekend? “They can put someone else in,” he said. “I’ll happily watch from the sidelines.” Decisive, selective. That’s exactly why Ingles finds himself atop the list of the NBA’s most accurate 3-point shooters. A third of the way through the season, Ingles is knocking down a league-leading 47.7 percent of his long bombs. That’s better than any of the contestants in last year’s 3-point shootout: Marco Belinelli (45.3), Kyle Korver (41.1), J.J. Redick (44.9), Stephen Curry (39.9 percent), Klay Thompson (38 percent), Wesley Matthews (37.3 percent) and James Harden (34.8 percent).
