76ers Vs. Celtics: Philadelphia Rushing Shots Early

The Celtics are out to an early 9-0 lead, as every 76ers starter has missed one shot. The problem? In an attempt to keep the tempo high, the 76ers are rushing shots. Spencer Hawes’s fadeaway in the lane on the third possession was a classic example. He wasn’t completely open, but because he felt that was the best shot he’d get, he rushed it.

When you rush shots against the Celtics’ defense, they get out and get points in the secondary transition. Philadelphia has to be more patient going forward.
