The first game of the Philadelphia 76ers summer league run is in the books. To the chagrin of Sixers fans, the club fell to the Memphis Grizzlies 103-99. However, there’s a lot to take away from this outing.
Best and worst of Sixers’ Summer League matchup against the Grizzlies.
It was a tale of two halves. In the first half, The Grizzlies established a 62-54 lead. However, the 76ers won the second half 45-41. Clearly, it wasn’t enough to win, but it was encouraging to see Philly fight back.
Unlike in years past, the Sixers don’t have any rookies drafted, and it felt weird to not have a true draft pick from the 2022 draft on this roster. However, players like Jaden Springer and Julain Champagnie are essentially the team’s rookies even though Springer was drafted last year and Champagnie was an undrafted rookie.
