His nine steals set a record for most NBA steals in a debut and tied the record for most steals by a Sixer in a single game. The 22 points were the most scored in a Sixer debut since Allen Iverson, who scored 30 vs. Milwaukee in 1996. Iverson, in attendance after announcing his retirement, saw what the standing, stomping Sixers fans witnessed at the end of Wednesday's game: Carter-Williams grabbed a critical rebound and sank two free throws in the waning seconds to preserve the Philadelphia win. "It couldn't have gone any better," Carter-Williams finally conceded with a wide smile and a chuckle. "I was all excited up in here. I'll be excited tonight, celebrate with my family and then back to work tomorrow." "He did great. And that's an understatement," said Sixers guard Evan Turner. "He had a great game. He led us. He played a great all-around game. His poise out there for a young guy was tremendous." The Post-Standard

His teammates told him to "be patient, just stay within my game." It was just a basketball game, he said. He had put in the hours, done the work. Turner referenced Carter-Williams' poise, his patience, his competitive spirit. All that was left was to play. And when it was over, he admitted it seemed like a dream. "It's my first NBA game. We were able to come up with a win and we all played great," Carter-Williams said later, surrounded by reporters in the Sixers locker room. "So I'll never forget this day. It's a dream come true."

I'm struggling with where to place McLemore. He has had inconsistent workouts in Cleveland, Orlando and Phoenix. Everyone loves the talent, but teams are clearly wary, and the workouts have given them pause. I know the Suns would prefer Oladipo, and sources say there's strong support in the front office for Cody Zeller and Syracuse's Michael Carter-Williams, as well. We're keeping McLemore here at No. 5, but I wouldn't be shocked if he ends up going a few spots lower in Mock 7.0 on Thursday. ESPN.com
