Michael Carter-Williams’ monster first quarter (VIDEO)

Oct 31, 2013, 2:42 AM EDT

This is a league where water bug point guards who flit around, find a way into the paint and then score among the trees in the paint are the guys driving the game.

Michael Carter-Williams is 6’6″ — the kind of tall point guard Phil Jackson would love. Actually, any coach would love Carter-Williams the way he played in his NBA debut Wednesday night against the Heat.

He started off the game with a steal, a drive the length of the court, then an emphatic slam. He went on to finish with 22 points on 6-of-10 shooting — he hit 4-of-6 from three and that was not supposed to be his strength. MCW had 12 assists to just one turnover.

It’s just one game, but for a Sixers team trying to find and develop young players this was encouraging.

    ill be realistic. if the heat played the sixers again tomorrow theyd win by 20+. but you cant deny the fact that this win gives this young sixers team a lot of confidence heading into the season. i dont think i physically remember the last time the sixers came within 10 pts of the heat in a final score, let alone actually beat them

    Meanwhile Jrue Holiday is down in New Orleans welcoming the crowd on behalf of the Sixers organization.

    The Sixers will still end up near the bottom. They will lose Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes to free agency. But the future is bright.
