Philadelphia 76ers: Seth Curry should have a bigger role

It’s rare, but there are players in the NBA that can go beyond expectations but also still leaving you wanting more. The Philadelphia 76ers have a few players like that in Ben Simmons, Matisse Thybulle, and Seth Curry. I’ve already written on how Simmons will probably never reach his full potential and how Thybulle is […] Philadelphia 76ers: Seth Curry should have a bigger role - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

GRADES: Joel Embiid drops 50 as Sixers defeat Bulls

A stellar performance from Joel Embiid leads to a 112-105 home victory for the Sixers. The Sixers hosted Chicago without all-star point guard Ben Simmons and sixth man Shake Milton, with Matisse Thybulle starting. Philadelphia were off to a good start, going up 15-8 before the first timeout with Joel Embiid having his way with […] GRADES: Joel Embiid drops 50 as Sixers defeat Bulls - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sixers look to go 2-0 in home stint with win vs. Bulls

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The Philadelphia 76ers’ latest win wasn’t pretty. After dominating against the Houston Rockets in the first half and going up by as much as 29 points, the Rockets cut the lead to just 4 in the fourth quarter as the Sixers held on to win, 118-113. Nevertheless, with the successful use of their 2-3 zone, 24 points from Tobias Harris, 25 points from Seth Curry, a terrific defensive performance from Matisse Thybulle, and a big second half from Joel Embiid (in an off game, he still finished with 31 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists) to lead the...

Matisse Thybulle continues to impress Sixers with his defense

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ “I think he has the potential to be the best defender in the league.” Matisse Thybulle has been on a defensive tear over the last month. He was at it yet again in the Philadelphia 76ers’ latest game, a 118-113 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. The Sixers went back to a heavy usage of their 2-3 zone defense to bother the Rockets, and Thybulle thrived. He helped contain plenty of the Rockets’ drives, contested three-pointers as always, and disrupted a host of plays off the ball as he flew into passing lanes using his speed,...

Sixers’ Player of the Week: Matisse Thybulle’s elite defense

Sadly, the Philadelphia 76ers went 2-2 this past week, however, there were some positives to take away from those four games. Joel Embiid’s play would be an obvious option for the player of the week prize, but it’s actually a defensive-oriented player who has earned this week’s award. Player of the Week: Matisse Thybulle The Sixers’ […] Sixers’ Player of the Week: Matisse Thybulle’s elite defense - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sixers: Matisse Thybulle’s a jump shot away from being a starter

There’s one thing that Matisse Thybulle has been proving in the last several weeks and especially in the comeback win against the Sacramento Kings. It’s that he’s a top-10 perimeter defender in the NBA, despite his lack of consistent offensive output for the Philadelphia 76ers. Against the Kings, De’Aaron Fox was having his way against […] Sixers: Matisse Thybulle’s a jump shot away from being a starter - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Matisse Thybulle’s defense is back in top form

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Thybulle’s elite defensive talent was on full display against the Pacers. Matisse Thybulle got off to a tough start this season. The Philadelphia 76ers’ second-year wing missed a lot of training camp with an ankle injury, and later missed three games in early January due to health and safety protocols following Seth Curry’s positive COVID-19 test. Understandably, Thybulle wasn’t at his best to begin the season. He displayed the same weaknesses on offense while making a few too many defensive mistakes, from overly aggressive...

Philadelphia 76ers: Welcome back, Matisse Thybulle

The Philadelphia 76ers are finally benefitting from Matisse Thybulle’s presence. Matisse Thybulle began the 2020-21 season on a low note. It seemed as though he was in Doc Rivers’ doghouse — barely part of the rotation, and little more than a situational defender. Rivers’ promises of “more opportunities” felt hollow and out of reach.
