B-BALL PAUL DRAINS 10 ON 5-FOR-9, 7 REBS, 5 ASSISTS AND 2 STEALS

By Jerry Traub

Paul Reed shot for 10 points (5-of-9 FGs), seven rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 22 minutes in the Sixers 112-101 loss to Boston.

After shooting 1-of-8 from the field in the preseason opener against the Celtics on Sunday, Reed was most effective in the paint, shooting 5-of-7.

On Sunday, Reed made one of his seven attempts, struggling with the Celtics tandem of Al Horford and Kristaps Porzingis.

Reed is playing these minutes while Joel Embiid ramps up in preparation for the regular season, so his role will be far different once the results count. However, given how positively Nick Nurse has spoken of Reed during the preseason, he’ll be worth taking a late-round flier on in most leagues.
