GRADES: Furkan Korkmaz explodes late in comeback win over Bucks

The Philadelphia 76ers continue their Cinderella run in Summer League after a 91-89 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Survive and advance. That’s what the 30th-seeded Philadelphia 76ers did on Saturday night, extending their Summer League run with an exciting 91-89 win over the 14th-seeded Milwaukee Bucks. Despite being in control for most of the second […] GRADES: Furkan Korkmaz explodes late in comeback win over Bucks - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

2018 NBA Summer League - Milwaukee Bucks vs. Philadelphia 76ers Recap

Christian Wood starred, but we were spared overtime in this Bucks loss Despite a late lead 88-80, Milwaukee managed to Bucks it in the best way possible as Furkan Korkmaz went nuclear on them and led the Philadelphia 76ers to victory 91-89, ending Milwaukee’s Summer League run. Once more, Christian Wood looked like the best Buck on the court, notching 27 points and 12 rebounds. After one, Milwaukee was leading 18-11 despite a poor end to the quarter. A staid first half led to a 39-38 game at halftime, with Milwaukee taking the slight edge. Surging late, the Sixers managed to take over the...

Sixers’ Isaiah Miles starring in major role on Summer League team

The Saint Joseph’s product catalyzed a major upset over Phoenix with 20 points and six rebounds. Isaiah Miles is capitalizing on his second Summer League opportunity with the Philadelphia 76ers. Philadelphia entered Summer League tournament play as the 30th seed and Miles paced the Sixers with 20 points and six rebounds in a 88-86 win over third-seeded Phoenix Thursday. Teaming with 40-point man Furkan Korkmaz, the two wings collectively scored 38 points to engender a spirited come-from-behind win. Miles, 24, propelled Philadelphia offensively with his fervid catch-and-shoot ability. The...

Furkan Korkmaz is key to Sixers’ Summer League success

If the Philadelphia 76ers want to make a deep Summer League run, Furkan Korkmaz has to show up. It’s mid-July, meaning the basketball season — well, Summer League — is heating up. The first couple days of tournament play are done, with the 30th-seeded Philadelphia 76ers already taking out Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns.

Top 7 prospects on the Sixers’ Summer League roster

Who should Philadelphia 76ers fans be watching as the Vegas Summer League shifts to tournament play? The Philadelphia 76ers‘ 2018 Summer League team has been nothing short of underwhelming, entering tournament play with an 0-3 record. Zhaire Smith, Cameron Oliver and Furkan Korkmaz have all had flashes, but consistency in every facet has been lacking.

Zhaire Smith showing off his impressive feel for the game in Summer League

Even an 0-3 cloud has its silver linings. The highlight of the Philadelphia 76ers’ Las Vegas Summer League so far may have been Furkan Korkmaz’s sudden explosion for 40 points with eight threes against the Boston Celtics. Now that he has fallen back to reality with 1-of-18 shooting through the last two games, though, there’s no doubt that rookie Zhaire Smith has been the more impressive prospect. Of course, due to the small sample size and level of competition, there's only so much stock you can put into Summer League games. But they aren’t meaningless. Rather than someone simply...

2018 Summer League: Sixers vs. Wizards Preview and Game Thread

Summer Sixers look for first win in Las Vegas The Philadelphia 76ers head in to their final game before the Summer League Tournament begins, with an 0-2 record, looking for a win. They will face the Washington Wizards (0-2), on Monday evening. In the summer session thus far, the Sixers have displayed an explosive 40-point performance from Furkan Korkmaz, a handful of highlight reel worthy plays from Zhaire Smith and glimpses of promise from Cameron Oliver. Like three siblings, similar yet all unique, the third game on Monday will likely present facets of these young players that have yet...

Summer League 2018: Lakers dismantle the 76ers behind Josh Hart’s big night

While the Sixers bricked 3 after 3, Josh Hart continued to have his way with Philadelphia’s defense If the Philadelphia 76ers’ loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday was the Furkan Korkmaz Game, their loss to the Los Angeles Lakers should be known as the Zhaire Smith Game — at least if you’re looking at it through a Sixers-centric lens. The high-flying wing dropped 16 points (6-of-13 shooting, 1 of 4 beyond the arc), three assists, three steals, two rebounds, one block and a handful of highlight-reel dunks. It wasn’t enough, however, as the Sixers moved to 0-2 in Summer League,...

76ers Summer Mini-Camp Notes

Free Agency has been in full swing since before 12:01am EST. Lost in the chaos of PG re-signing in OKC and the loss of the 76ers bench MVPs Marco Belinelli and Ersan Illyasova, the team’s summer league roster began their mini-camp sessions today (running from July 1-July4). Although the team’s recently drafted rookies (Zhaire Smith and Landry Shamet) will be in the spotlight, two-way guys like Demetrious Jackson, and 2nd-year vets such as Furkan Korkmaz, will be added to summer league rosters in an effort to hone their current skill sets and stand out among a class of NBA players...
