T.J. McConnell played 17 minutes in Thursday's loss finishing as a plus-16 to go with eight points, five assists and two steals on 4-of-4 shooting.
While McConnell's lack of shooting can hurt the Sixers from time to time, he deserves lots of credit for this performance. He gave the team a much-needed jolt, particularly early in the fourth quarter with some aggressive takes and smart decisions. It helped that Ben Simmons stunk up the joint tonight but McConnell has earned a larger role in this series after his play in Game 2.
