Sixers’ Hollis Thompson hits three to send it to overtime, where Philly beats Detroit (VIDEO)


Philadelphia may not be the worst team in the NBA.

The Sixers have won two of their last three and Saturday night beat what had been everyone’s second worst team, the Detroit Pistons in what was an ugly game, but the score still counts. The Sixers had that OT chance because Hollis Thompson who hit the corner three that tied the game and sent it to overtime (well, Brandon Jennings had the chance to save it for the Pistons but after dribbling the clock down he put up an airball). In OT the Sixers beat the Pistons 108-101.

The Sixers superior athleticism won the day, led by Michael Carter-Williams with 20 points, 15 assists and 8 rebounds on the night.
