Nick, a nurse, is thrilled with Lori and the new cycle

After Joel Embiid's injury, Philadelphia clearly needs a boost. It is impossible to replace the best player in the NBA in terms of statistics and impact on the game, but at least someone needs to constantly remember that we must continue to fight on the hardwood. Well, that was Kyle Lowry.

The veteran guard joined the team as a free agent in mid-February after finalizing his contract with the Charlotte Hornets. Being an old acquaintance of 76ers coach Nick Nurse, with whom he won the ring in 2019, it was expected that he would be important to the team, but perhaps not as much as seen.

With a winning culture ingrained in him, Lowry took over as the starting point guard and had very good games. Against the Hornets he had a double-double of 15 points and 10 assists and against Dallas, despite not being a good shooter, he contributed 7 assists for no losses. Yes, he's a leader on the hardwood, but he also made it possible for two-pieces like Cameron Payne and Kelly Oubre Jr. to operate efficiently from the second unit. This is how the nurse explains it.

“As I told the players themselves, the plan has been going in that direction for a while to try to create a different group on the field. I think the combination of Cam Payne and Kelly on the bench would be a good duo for that second unit. I'm trying to get to that point,” he says. Coach.
