Chris Forsberg

Jared Sullinger still struggling with his shot (missed 8 of 10 shots) and Nerlens Noel didn’t help that cause: bit.ly/1GJULXC

Derek Bodner

Really want to see Nerlens Noel and K.J. McDaniels join the quintuple-5 list some day.

Gary Washburn

Jared Sullinger went up and tried to dunk on Nerlens Noel. Guess the outcome. #celtics #76ers

Derek Bodner

That Bucket gives Nerlens Noel a career high 19 points. #sixers

Gary Washburn

#celtics lead #76ers 88-64 after 3Q. Olynyk with 26, his most since April 14. Bass 12, Green 14; Noel 17, Covington 11.

Cs on verge of blowout,up 88-64 after 3Q. "#Celtics: Olynyk 26 pts. Bass 12 pts. #Sixers: Noel 17 pts, 6 reb. Covington 11 pts. #Celticstalk

Derek Bodner

17 points for Nerlens Noel ties a career high. We still have 18 minutes to go in this one. #sixers

Tom Moore

#Sixers Noel having a very good game. Has team-high 17 points (8-for-10 shooting), 6 rebounds, 3 assists in 22 minutes.

John R. Finger

that’s a career-high 17 for Nerlens Noel.

Bob Cooney

Good, hard follow by Noel there. He should get two of them a game.

Gary Washburn

#celtics leading #76ers 57-38 at the half. Olynyk 18, Bradley 11, Rondo 4 steals; Noel 10 for PHL.

Derek Bodner

After saying all those nice things about Nerlens, he just airballed a 3’ layup. He shot it 5’.

Derek Bodner

Noel’s passing is seriously a pleasant surprise. As is Robert Covington’s ability to finish around hoop. The two things converged there.

A. Sherrod Blakely

Cs up 30-25 after 1Q: #Celtics: Olynyk 14 pts. Bradley 11 pts each. #Sixers: Noel, Covington: 6 pts each. #Celticstalk

Derek Bodner

Nerlens Noel has looked lost offensively the last few games, but made a baseline j, a nice runner, and 2 nice passes so far only 6 mins in.

John R. Finger

Almost a takedown for Nerlens on Olynyk. Looked like Nerlens wanted to get him in the Figure 4.

Derek Bodner

Passing is the most surprising (positive) part of Nerlens game ; Hands are the most surprising part (negative) of Nerlens game.

Derek Bodner

Odds of Robert Covington missing 2 three’s in one possession seem low. Nice o-board and kick-out from Nerlens Noel to find Covington for 3.

Adi Joseph

The Sixers started the year with two healthy building blocks: MCW and Noel. Covington, KJMD and Wroten have joined that. That's a positive.

John R. Finger

the Sixers need help getting anyone to guard on the perimeter, so Nerlens is doing it.

Tom Moore

#Sixers MCW gets triple-double on rebound of Noel blocked shot at halfcourt. Has 16, 11 assists, 10 rebs. Up 8 w/1:46 to go.

Kaan Kural

NBA'de draft öncesi oyuncuların ayakkabılı ve ayakkabısız boyları ölçülüyor. Nerlens Noel için ayrı düzenleme şart. sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/51…

John R. Finger

they just gave MCW a rebound on a blocked shot by Nerlens. Friendly roll by the scorers

Christopher A. Vito

Nerlens Noel with the dunk. It's his first made field goal in the last two games.

Christopher A. Vito

Nerlens Noel tried to jump the passing lane for a steal, missed, and then commits a soft foul on Marc Gasol. Oof.

Tom Moore

#Sixers Noel is shooting 0-for-3 tonight, making him 0-for-11 in last two games.

Christopher A. Vito

Nerlens Noel fouls Mike Conley with 3.6 seconds left in the half, and with 0.2 left on the shot clock. Not a good foul to commit.

Derek Bodner

Really, really, really bad foul by Nerlens there with the shot clock running out. Nerls looking a bit lost on both ends tonight.

Keith Pompey

You can tell that @Nerlens Noel's foot is bothering him.

Christopher A. Vito

Nerlens Noel vs. Marc Gasol at center. Far more disconcerting for the Sixers? The matchup at power forward: Mbah a Moute vs. Zach Randolph

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown: Starting Covington again (sans group as last night). Can't start Noel and Sims in case one gets in foul trouble.

John Schuhmann

I doubt either has chucked as shamelessly as Green. RT @Mike Mazzeo: @John Schuhmann Deron and Noel also in the 0-for-8 club tonight
