Here’s what Sixers coach Doc Rivers told their web site about Day 1:

“I liked our spacing. Loved the ball movement. I thought the defense was ahead of the offense, which is probably typical to the first day.”

“Just add more. Tweak more. Don’t try to re-create the wheel. The wheel was pretty good last year. I do think we have to be more efficient offensively than we were last year. We have to cut down on turnovers, or game-changing turnovers. And we’ve still got to pass better. Just better movement. It’s easier this year because we’re picking up where we left off, where last year, everything was new. At least this year, we got on the floor and said one of our actions and they all just…did it.”

“The energy was amazing. Especially from the returning guys. Usually the energy is better from the rookies and the new guys. But I thought, clearly, Joel [Embiid], Danny [Green] and Seth [Curry], they came with a very serious energy.”
