Brett Brown: “I Think Glenn had his Best 76er Performance”
It took awhile but Glenn Robinson III finally hit his first 3-pointer wearing a Sixers uniform during Tuesday nights loss to the Lakers, calmly stepping into a a wide-open three from the wing with 8:48 showing on the clock in the second quarter of the game.
"I'm sure he felt enough is enough," admitted Sixers head coach Brett Brown said after the game in LA. "He knows what he did in Golden State, and haven't done what I really hoped to in Philadelphia and I have more to give, I have more to show."
Robinson was acquired before the trade dealing along with Alec Burks, to add spacing and some more 3-point shooting. But it hasn't exactly gone as planned, Robinson didn't connect on one triple in any of his first eight game with the Sixers, before finally connecting last night.
Just last week, Robinson complained that his role with Philly was "not really explained" after they acquired him in a trade with Golden State.
Robinson ended up with a three 3-pointers in all, totaling a career-high 25 points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal off the bench in 32 minutes of work.
"He's at a stage of his career where he is going to have to have those types of performances," Brown explained. "I'm proud of what he did, when you search for silver linings this could be one where we move him forward."
"I think Glenn came in and had his best 76er performance," Brown continued.
Hopefully after Tuesday's performance, Robinson has found his stoke, and can carve out a role for the Sixers and help them get back on track by the time the playoffs come around.
