Quote To Note:

76ers head coach Doc Rivers on rookie Charles Bassey, who posted five points, four rebounds and one block in 10 minutes off the bench:

“I thought he was fantastic. He knows the coverages and stuff already. That’s really impressive for a young guy. He actually got on a guy late in the game because the guy didn’t do the right coverage… Just watching him, he knows how to play. He’s raw, but I like how he plays.”
