Wroten led the Sixers with 23 points and shot very well from downtown, hitting 5 of his 8 attempts. Wroten is not known for his long range shooting but is definitely something Philly can get used to as their only reliable outside shooter seems to be Hawes. Wroten also dished out 5 assists but on the other hand committed 5 turnovers. Evan Turner scored 21 and secured 10 rebounds, bouncing back from his disappointing performance in Minnesota. Thad Young added 18 points and 5 rebounds while Hawes scored 15 points and blocked 4 shots but only recorded 3 rebounds. Hawes is averaging a nice 1.6 blocks per game this season. James Anderson continued to play well in his scoring role off the bench as he contributed 13 points.
DeMar DeRozen lead all scorers with 27 and had 6 assists. Terrence Ross added 24 points off 4 threes. Big man Amir Johnson scored 17 points and collected 10 boards while Jonas Valanciunas contributed 12 points and grabbed 13 rebounds.
Philadelphia turned the ball over 17 times, much better than their 26 against the Timberwolves but it could still be better. Toronto finished with 15 turnovers and won a tight rebounding battle 47-42. Both teams had 40 points scored in the paint.
Since starting 3-1, Philadelphia has lost 17 of their last 21 games. They are who we thought they were before this season begin.
The Sixers look forward to returning to Philadelphia tomorrow night. Unfortunately, they play the Trail Blazers(19-4) the top team in the West.
