Not sure there's been a moment tonight when Nerlens wasn't shoving Henson in the back.
MCW on The Plan: as far as I knew, I was involved in the long term plan, especially with me, Joel and Nerlens.
MCW: I thought I was a cornerstone for that team. Me, Nerlens and Joel.
I was not surprised when told they would entertain trading MCW. Would not be surprised if same happend with Noel. Would be stunned w/Embiid.
Noel 8-for-10 from foul line.
Also Nerlens Noel's best FT game (8-of-10). But he needs to keep adding weight. Takes contact well, but falls down too much after the hit.
At Heat-Sixers & impressed w/ Nerlens Noel's inside footwork, touch & improving jump shot. Now 5 straight games w/ 10+ points (season high).
Nerlens might have bit on that Deng pump fake just a weeeeee bit.
Somebody seriously needs to figure out the shooting % when Noel uses his left hand down low vs right hand. Much better left-handed.
Noel with a nice block on Whiteside
Whiteside vs. Nerlens Noel for the tip. Whiteside has it.
lmao CBS, Yahoo and I all put up our "JaVale wants to mentor Nerlens and Embiid" at the exact same time.
Noel's passing is underrated part of his game. With him playing with more shooters, could see some good passes like that last one to JaKarr.
There is no chance that Nerlens can not a human being down like that. No chance without flopping.
Nerlens Noel finished with 12 points, 9 rebounds, 9 blocks and 4 steals tonight.
That block was Nerlens Noel's 9th. He needs 1 rebound and 1 block for a triple-double.
Nerlens Noel triple-double watch: 12 points, 9 boards, 8 blocks.
Noel blocks another shot! He can go for a triple double for real now
You wouldn't think that Nerlens Noel could push Hibbert away that easily from a rebound, but it happened. Noel with 10 p/8r/6b
Halftime: Sixers trail Indiana, 58-40. Nerlens Noel racking up stats for the Sixers, who have 12 TOs and 14 FGM.
At the point, Roy Hibbert should try playing more on the perimeter if that's going to draw Noel away from the rim.
Nerlens Noel: 6 points, 6 blocks, 5 rebounds. (He has 7 career double-doubles, no triple-doubles.)
Mahinmi fouls Nerlens Noel on the drive. But he already got him across the chin with a shoulder on that earlier steal att in this possession
Nerlens Noel just dominating the paint defensively tonight. Already has 5 blocks in 9 minutes (and 6 points and 5 boards).
Nerlens, Embiid & McGee? Sam Hinkie knew what he’s doing …
Then Noel takes it up strong for a dunk at the other end. Still needs time, but man is his game taking on some polish this season.
These certainly look like two teams who haven't played in a week. Noel showing off his defensive prowess early.
Sixers' starters vs. IND: Robert Covington, Luc Mbah a Moute, Nerlens Noel, Tim Frazier, Jason Richardson. (I'm framing this lineup card.)
