Tony Wroten banked in the go-ahead bucket on a driving layup.
The Cavs were also without Dion Waiters, who was shipped to OKC just prior to the game.
Per the Philly Inquirer:
“We are not apologetic with this win at all,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said. “I think it is unfair when you start weighing up [resumes] … If we are about to compare resumes and years of experience and those types of things, accolades, have a look at my group: Young guys that don’t know what they don’t know and just came out and played. I’m proud of our team.”
Wroten finished with a team-high 20 points and eight assists. The backup point guard scored nine of the Sixers’ final 13 points.
He said the play on his go-ahead basket was drawn up for starting point guard Michael Carter-Williams. […] “Mike came to me at the last minute and switched it up a little bit,” Wroten said. “That’s the kind of pressure I want. I missed the free throw before that. So it was in the back of my mind. I can’t be the reason that we lose.”
