Philly shot 37% from the floor, 21.7% from beyond the arc, and a horrible 55% from the free throw line, somehow even worse than their numbers in season-opener. They finished with 18 total turnovers, still better than Milwaukee's 21. The Bucks didn't shoot much better either, 41% from the floor and 57% from the line. Not an efficient game from either side.
Noel played much better in his second NBA game after a slightly debut against the Pacers. The rookie finished with 14 points (7-11 FG) and 10 rebounds for his first career double-double. Noel looked more confident on the offensive end and defensively he's had 3 blocks in both of his games so far. The other rookie for Philly, SG KJ McDaniels, added an efficient 12 points in 14 minutes off the bench before exiting the game with a hip injury. He's listed as day-to-day.
Tony Wroten ended with 14 points, 6 assists, and 3 steals but failed to take advantage of trips to the foul line, only hitting 6 of 11 attempts. He also turned the ball over 8 times after only committing 1 in the season opener. Thompson contributed 15 points for Philly.
OJ Mayo led the way for the Bucks, scoring 25 points (5-7 3pt FG) with 5 assists. Jabari Parker also notched a double-double with 11 points and 10 boards. Larry Sanders turned away 5 shots and secured 15 rebounds as Milwaukee won the rebound battle 55-42.
Unsurprisingly, the Sixers also announced they picked up the third year team options on Noel and Carter-Williams as well as the fourth year option on Wroten.
The 76ers return to the Wells Fargo to play the Heat in their home opener on Saturday night.
