The Good: K.J. McDaniels finishing with left hand. The bad: K.J. McDaniels taking contested jumpers early in shot clock.
Point of reference: Nerlens Noel has played about same minutes and been starting: 96.4 off rtg when Noel's been on bench, 88.3 when on court
Covington is also the only regular with a Net Rating over the past 9 games that doesn't suck (-0.8). K.J. 2nd at -4.0, MCW 3rd at -5.1.
(Covington is obviously 1st on the team in 3ptm during the last 9 games at 3.2 per game, and 1st in 3pt% at 44.6%)
Over last 9 games, Robert Covington is 2nd on team in minutes (31.7), 1st on the team in scoring (17.7), and 3rd on the team in rebs (6.0).
Glad to see the "Tony Wroten flicking the ball at the basket with his feed wide apart" airball 3's are back.
At 33, Rob Zepp is oldest player to make his NHL debut with the Flyers. Neil Little, who 30 on March 28, 2002 at Carolina.

McDaniel's mom telling players as they walk off floor "Pass the ball. Pass the ball."
Wroten drive the lane, fired a pass off the forehead of Vucevic which led to Orlando fastbreak
Woman near Sixers bench chanting "we want KJ". Bench got a chuckle out of it
If there's one NBA stat I wish we could 100% get rid of, it's using total rebounds to talk about rebounding differential.
Now that's what Noel should do every time
Another double pump by Noel down low. Gotta get rid of that. Nice recovery to get ball back and basket, tho
After Noel/MCW spat, Jason Richardson talked to Noel. Brown just made his way down to Richardson and appeared to get filled in.
Sixers are on pace for 30 turnovers but lead by three.

Welp. Guess I can head out and pick up some stocking stuffers.
JaKarr Sampson starting tonight. Brown says he likes McDaniels and Wroten coming off the bench for a spark.
Indy on the take. Has to be.
I hope I will achieve success in nba like him...
