After voicing his frustration with not playing Arnett Moultrie finally saw some action last night. He, along with Lorenzo Brown, was sent down to play for the Delaware 87ers of the D-League. He didn't start, heck he didn't even have his name sewn onto his jersey, but in about 20 minutes of game time he looked like he was ready to play. He moved well and without hesitation. He had a couple of quality plays including a spin to the hoop around former Sixer Daniel Orton that he may not have been capable of if his ankle was still bothering him. His hustle at times was questionable but he gave a decent effort all game. He did look winded in the 3rd quarter but that isn't surprising for someone who hasn't played this season and only played limited minutes during his rookie season. He finished the game emphatically with a one handed alleyoop dunk.
Aside from Arnett, Lorenzo Brown looked good and led the team in scoring. His defense still doesn't look great but his shooting touch and court vision are improving.
Athanasios Antetokounmpo is raw but obviously has similar athletic gifts as his brother, although he's much smaller. He's going to make some fan base very happy next year. He plays hard on every play.
Daniel Orton got T'ed up. In a D league game. He was still showing the lack of effort that I think led to his being cut by the Sixers. The talent is there but the drive just seems to be lacking.
