VIDEO: Sixers Thrilling Comeback Victory vs Rockets

The comeback kids did it again! Man, does this ever get old?

The Rockets didn’t have James Harden, but the Sixers didn’t have Michael Carter-Williams. Fair game as far as I’m concerned. Lets not forget the Rockets still had Jeremy Lin and Dwight Howard. The Sixers? Starting back court of Tony Wroten (first NBA start) and James Anderson.

The Sixers were down 90-80 going into the fourth, looking to finally drop under .500 for the season. However, like we’ve seen all season, this team refused to give up. The Sixers would go on to win the 4th quarter 26-16 to send the game into over time. The Sixers would win over time 17-11 to seal a 123-117 victory. Another game where this Sixers team scores 100+ points, I think I can count on my fingers the times that happened last season. Bravo to Brett Brown, who I seriously believe needs consideration for Coach of the Year.

In order to win this game, James Anderson and Tony Wroten had to have the best games of their career. Boy did they. James Anderson scored a career high 36 points on 12-16 shooting (6-8 from deep). Tony Wroten messed around and had a triple double. Wroten had 18 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Most impressive was Wroten being able to show skills as a PG, knowing his team would need them with MCW out and a team lacking depth at point guard. More impressive? Check out this tweet:

Nothing like a little NBA history in Wroten’s first start. Brett Brown is obviously getting something out of his guys that Doug Collins could never get out of a roster that arguably had more talent. I’m not use to this whole thrilling winning thing, but I’m sure it never gets old.
