The Sixers now have seven wins on the season. On January 16th, they beat the Portland Trailblazers by 25. They hadn’t beat a team by 25 points in nearly four years. Look who was there:
Last night, the Sixers beat the Suns by 10 and completed their season sweep of the in-shambles team. Look who was there:
The Sixers are 2-0 with Nicki Minaj in attendance. They average a point differential of +17.5. Look at the stat lines for these guys when Nicki is there:
- Ish Smith: 18 ppg (11.5 on the season)
- Robert Covington: 17.5 ppg (11.5 on the season), 40.9% 3PT (34.6%)
- Nerlens Noel: 8.5 rebounds per game (8.1), 3.5 steals per game (1.8), 3.5 blocks per game (1.9)
In those two games, Isaiah Canaan and Covington have combined for 30 three-point attempts, because when Nicki is in the front row, you gotta shoot your shot.
Someone give her season tickets (next year, the Lakers are making it way too close this season). Can you imagine the level at which Embiid will play with Nicki watching? She might single-handedly keep him healthy.
Oh, also: Meek Mill was there too. But is that your blog post or your girl’s post?
