“He (Stauskas) knows this. This coaching staff loves that kid and he has got a green light to go play and play fearlessly, and we will help him. He just happens to be missing shots right now, and it can’t creep into his defense, which is the area that upsets me the most. So right now he’s swimming, and you have to swim hard. Nobody is going to scold him and bench him right now. He’s going to play, and we’re going to help him move forward. But it is a case of participating in your own rescue, and it’s in him. We need it to be in him. It’s all about being a two-way player.”
Nik Stauskas knocked down his first three-pointer on Friday night and Sixers public address announcer Matt Cord bellowed that the shot was hit by “Sauce Castillo.” Stauskas’ closed-captioned nickname had officially followed him to Philadelphia. “I embrace it as much as the fans embrace it,” Stauskas said. “If the fans are all for it, then I’m all for it. If it dies down, then it dies down. But if the fans like it, then cool.”
