Tom Moore

#Sixers Noel on facing #Hawks team Sat that has won 18 straight: 'That's a great team. We definitely have to get s hand up on Kyke Korver.'

Tom Moore

#Sixers Noel on 6 blocks, 4 steals: 'I'm just trying to stay active.'

Derek Bodner

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown: 'At times, with all due respect, I thought we had the rookie of the year in Nerlens.'

Derek Bodner

Nerlens Noel with 14 points, 6 rebounds, 6 blocks, 3 assists, and 4 steals. He’s going to be a 5x5 game some day. #sixers

Bob Cooney

Good fight there by Mbah a Moute to keep ball alive and get layup for Noel. #Sixers now up 7 with 5:45 to go

Bob Cooney

Noel 5-5 from floor for 10, Mbah a Moute leads with 12 for #Sixers. Pekovic has 16 to lead Twolves.

Tom Moore

Jerry Zgoda

Pek has outscored Nerlens 14-10 so far and there's 3:17 left in 2nd qtr

Bob Cooney

Noel's passing ability is something the #Sixers will have to incorporate into the offense more at some point. He sees floor really well.

Jerry Zgoda

Before game, Brett Brown says Pek outweights Nerlens by "325 pounds" That would Pek about 540 pounds. "Sounds about right," Pek said

Tom Moore

Saunders: Pek(ovic) 'has strength, Noel has length. It'll be who can exert their will on the other.' #Sixers

Derek Bodner

"Nerlens is going to give up, what, 325 lbs to Pekovic?" Brown says they'll start of with base defense, but will have stuff in back pocket.

Tom Moore

#Sixers Noel on Noel being up and down (struggled last 3): 'I think the pace and frequency of games is catching him off-guard.'

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown: 'Nerlens is going to give up, what?, 325 pounds to Pekovic?'

Derek Bodner

(which is not entirely true. Noel is, to be fair, a better perimeter defender than Embiid.)

Derek Bodner

Man, if you could give Nerlens Noel + upper and lower body strength, coordination, touch, and incredible footwork you'd have...Embiid #Soon

Derek Bodner

Watch Hinkie grab Jerian Grant (Jerami's brother), Georges Niang + Jake Layman (MCW+Noel AAU teammates), and #sixers will be one big family

Vincent Goodwill

No lie. Mbah a Moute scores 8, Noel doing a little bit of everything. Give them 20-pt lead. Where does Brett Brown put them? The bench

Bob Cooney

Nice left-handed pass off the dribble by Noel there. #Sixers

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown starting MCW, Sampson, Covington, Mbah a Moute and Noel starting.
