Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams are close friends dating back to their days as AAU teammates in Boston.
But with the 76ers playing the Magic yesterday, the Philadelphia teammates got a little heated during a first-quarter timeout.

A funny thing happened after the incident: The 76ers won!
It has been and will continue to be a frustrating season for Philadelphia’s players. Management is tanking, having built a roster that can’t regularly compete at this level, and the players are forced to handle loss after loss because of it.
This surely won’t be the last time the frustration boils over, but if the 76ers keep those moments from growing in significance, they’ll be fine. If they keep turning them into wins, they’ll be really well off.
