Sixers got a great night of guard play vs. Blazers. Now, they need it more often. | David Murphy


Article Summary:

On Sunday night, you saw what can happen when a team has a player who can break down a defense without any more help than a basic ball screen.

Of course, neither performance came close to equaling the one that Portland got from Lillard, who became the second player to go for 50-plus against the Sixers since they entered the Disney bubble. Maybe that’s part of the problem – not that they lack a Damian Lillard, but that they lack a player who can do what Richardson and Burks did against the Blazers more frequently. Heading into the season, the hope was that Richardson would be that player, but he isn’t an elite ballhandler, and he does not regularly score with the efficiency that we saw out of him on Sunday.
