SIXERS FALL IN SEASON OPENER, OKAFOR HAS NICE DEBUT
The highlight of the night (and there were some) was the debut of Jahlil Okafor. The kid is 19. I'm 19. What am I doing with my life besides writing? Anyway, Jah scored 26 points, the third most for a rookie in his first game, and also recorded an assist, seven rebounds, and two blocked shots. Nerlens Noel also had a solid night, recording a double-double of 14 points and 12 rebounds, along with 2 assists and 2 blocks. Isaiah Canaan dropped 18 as well. The Sixers host the Jazz tomorrow night in their home opener at 7 PM. (RECAP)
