Georges Niang Goes Off Against His Old Team

The Cleveland Cavaliers would host the Philadelphia 76ers for a Friday night showdown. Former 76er Georges Niang would have something in store for his old team, like scoring 25 points and drilling five 3s from beyond the arch. Anytime Georges Niang was open on the floor, he took advantage of his scoring opportunities. He was causing Philly’s defense significantly more problems with his ability to score from the perimeter and cut to the basket with a couple of nice floaters. Georges Niang made an immediate impact on the bench. I’m curious to see if J.B. Bickerstaff (The Cleveland Cavaliers head coach) will put Georges Niang in the starting lineup this Sunday against the Denver Nuggets.

Taking Leadership

The Philadelphia 76ers point guard Kyle Lowry had an excellent second half, ending with 23 points. Still, the most important thing I saw from his game is how he took command of the offense. He was like a quarterback making significant decisions with the basketball, whether to kick the ball out to his teammates or create his shot by the way he buried four from three-point land. He also took command of the defense—communicating with his teammates and directing them who to guard. I was impressed with Kyle Lowry and his leadership role tonight.

Flyers Let Early Lead Slip Away, Lose to Capitals

Tobias Harris Had A Great Game

Tobias Harris had a great game tonight for the Philadelphia 76ers. He played exceptionally well in the first half, Jacking 3’s in catch-and-shoot situations or just pulling up to the perimeter and unloading 3-pointers. He had great vision to find open teammates and facilitate them the ball. Unfortunately, the 76ers did not win this game. They battled down to the end; however, if they can play like this, they should be able to take a Win from the Raptors on Easter. It will be interesting to see how Nick Nurse will coach against his old team.
