Doc Rivers, Sixers discuss progression of 2nd unit to help get wins

USA Today


Article Summary:

“I think what we don’t realize is every time we have a starter out, that takes another guy off the second unit, and you don’t have your second unit on the floor either. We have faced that problem quite a bit, so that’s our next step. Though that second unit, they’re making strides. They’re not where I want them to be yet, but you can clearly see it coming. This trip will tell us a lot.”

While they have been very good in some games, some could say the unit as a whole could give more on the floor, at least if one asks a very important member of that second unit.

“As a second unit, we have a lot of potential right now,” said Korkmaz. There are plenty of times when the starting unit faces the bench unit, obviously, in practice. “We really work extremely hard every day to really help the first unit out. We want those guys to see the best defense they will see from any team against the second unit so that way, that when they get in the game, they’ll be able to just play because they’ve seen the best defense they know.”

The Sixers have the chance to win a title right now to do that, they will need the entire team.
