Philadelphia 76ers: Matisse Thybulle is about to cement a unicorn season

Article Summary:

As crazy as it may sound, considering the sheer number of intriguing storyline heading into their final few games of the regular season, Matisse Thybulle is on the cusp of etching his name in NBA history just in time to join the Philadelphia 76ers’ playoff rotation if he can just rack up a few more deflections down the stretch.

With four games left to play in the regular season, Thybulle ranks third in the NBA in steals behind our old pals T.J. McConnell and Jimmy Butler and tied for 17th in blocks alongside Minnesota Timberwolves big man Naz Reid. While it’s hard to see Thybulle recording nine steals in the final four games of the season, let alone 16, Green has never recorded more than 100 steals in a single season, whereas “Matheif” has already surpassed that total in only 65 games of action, and could see his total balloon up into the low 110 if he can keep up his 1.6 steals per game average up down the stretch.

So, if only one guard in the last decade has recorded more than 71 blocks in the last decade and he didn’t even come close to Thybulle’s total steals, what does that tell us? Maybe that Thybulle is about to close out his sophomore season with an absolute unicorn of a stat line and deserves every bit of hype he’s been receiving from the Sixers’ fanbase.
