Sixer rookie center Jahlil Okafor was in a slump after his two-game suspension for off-court behavior.
But the good news is that Jah is back.
The Sixers’ second-quarter run against Detroit Friday night was sparked by one of those series of Jahlil post-ups where he scores three times in a row on three different moves, and the opposing center seems absolutely hopeless to stop him.
He also hit a couple of banked jumpers and showed some very encouraging pick-and-roll chemistry with the recently returned Kendall Marshall. He ended up with 22 points on 10-18 shooting.
He only grabbed six rebounds though, 10 fewer than his Detroit counterpart, Andre Drummond did.
