Mike Scott: “We Are Trying To Gel – We Are Still Learning”
The Sixers made their second big trade of the season over three weeks ago when they acquired Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, and Mike Scott from the Los Angeles Clippers a day before the NBA Trade Deadline. The 76ers are 5-2 since remaking the roster with their offense averaging 118.1 Points Per Game and shooting 37.2 Percent from Three Point Range, both above their season averages. Plus the Sixers are averaging 14 Turnovers Per Game since the NBA Trade Deadline which is below their per game average on the season of 15.5 TOVPG.
Sixers Forward and seven year NBA Veteran Mike Scott joined Mike Gill on Wednesday and discussed the process of the roster learning to play together since the Trade Deadline:
"We still have a little ways to go, we have won some games and then we lost two games to some good teams, we still have to gel. (When) we get 'Big Fella' (Joel Embiid) back, we get (Boban Marjanovic) back and I think we will be fine and (start) getting ready for the playoffs....It’s a little challenging (but) I’m not one for making up excuses or taking the easy way out - Sometimes you do need to beat the s*** out of a team when you’re a better team but we’re trying to gel. We use practices for that time and we are still learning, but at the same time we are professionals.”
