They did so by getting Seth Curry involved early.
Coach Doc Rivers gave credit to the team recognizing Curry had it going early.
“They knew he had it going. They kept going to him. He kept making shots,” said Rivers. “We didn’t go in with the game plan of getting Seth 28 or whatever he had in the first quarter, but I was saying that the team recognized that he had it going. That’s the sign of a good team. Like they see that he had it going and basically they were running Seth Curry lefts, Seth Curry right on post up to Joel, they’re cutting to get Seth shots, really great recognition by our group.”
The Sixers will head to The Big Apple to take on the New York Knicks on Tuesday to conclude the two-game trip.
