Sixers Free-Throw Shooting Struggles Continue

Everything is going downhill for the Philadelphia 76ers, and one of the main causes for those sixteen losses is crucial, missed free-throws.

As a team, the Sixers are shooting just about 70 % from the line. But as far as individual players, Tony Wroten has struggled the most, shooting just 56 %. Lavoy Allen is next, shooting 62 % from the free-throw line, and Brandon Davies, James Anderson, Thaddeus Young, and Michael Carter-Williams are close behind with 67 %. Evan Turner is the only bright spot when it comes to free-throws, as he is shooting an efficient 83 %.

When it matters most, in the final minutes of the game, missed free-throws are costing the Sixers losses. This is something that needs to be improved as soon as possible, because these misses are letting games just slip away, out of their reach.
