Wednesday night’s game between the Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers is absolutely full of action.
We’ve got blocks, flops and goal tends!
First, 76ers’ forward Thaddeus Young gives center Spencer Hawes a pretty good feed in the post. However, Hawes has his shot completely gobbled up by the league’s best shot-blocker (and center, for that matter), Dwight Howard.
Next up, 76ers’ forward Thaddeus Young seems to, um, overreact to Rockets’ forward Chandler Parsons as Parsons dishes the ball outside to swingman Francisco Garcia, who proceeds to miss a pretty good look from three.
Lastly, Howard tries to pick up another huge block when 76ers’ rookie power forward Brandon Davis gets into the paint against Rockets’ forward Omri Casspi on a switch, but performs an obvious goal tend.
The 5-3 Rockets and the surprising 4-4 76ers are in a pretty tight game in the first half. The 76ers have overcome an early deficit to take a 47-43 lead with 6:41 to play in the half.
76ers’ guard James Anderson leads all scorers with 15 points while both Howard and point guard Jeremy Lin have 10 for the Rockets.
