Sixers’ Tony Wroten with the monster rejection against Derrick Rose (VIDEO)


It’s not often that Derrick Rose is on the wrong side of these types of highlights, but given the way the Sixers erased the Bulls’ 18-point third quarter lead to come away with their third straight victory to start the season, the guys on the tam who made it happen deserve a little shine.

Rose looked like one of the fastest players in the league in going end to end for the shot attempt, but that’s where his heroics ended on this particular play. Tony Wroten was waiting for him, and timed his jump perfectly to come up with the monster rejection on one of the game’s most explosive players.

Welcome to America, Fenerbahce Ulker.

The Turkish powerhouse was in America playing some exhibition games this preseason, and they got a first-hand reminder that Kevin Durant is back. KD had 13 points in the Thunder’s easy 111-81 win.

Not to be outdone, Russell Westbrook got in on the act.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
