There are times when Tony Wroten drives toward the basket with the recklessness of a beat-up car speeding through a residential neighborhood.
But on Saturday night, the 76ers backup point guard was as smooth as a high-priced luxury car.
"I thought he played with a controlled speed," Sixers coach Brett Brown said after a 104-92 setback to the Utah Jazz at the Wells Fargo Center. "I thought he could go from to 30 [m.p.h.] to 80 back to 50. He controlled his speed. And when he does that, he plays with a far greater poise, pace and control."
Wroten was a huge positive for a Sixers squad (15-47) that lost its 16th straight game. He made 12 of 15 shots to finish with a career-high 30 points.
