It was his second-highest scoring output of the season and most 3-pointers he's made in a game all season. He added one rebound, one assists and one steal to his totals.
After starting 21 of 25 games, Thompson contracted a severe upper respiratory infection. He was sent home from the team's West Coast road trip in late December and was out of action for the next 24 days.
Thompson lost 20 pounds while he was battling the infection, and it took him awhile to feel himself again on the floor after returning to the team on Jan. 13.
Thompson lost his starting spot while out sick, but his outside shooting has made him a valuable weapon off the bench. He's hit 10 of his last 16 3-pointers, and his scoring average over the last 10 games is higher than it was when he was starting.
"Clearly he’s got his feet settled, and he’s playing with confidence," Sixers coach Brett Brown told NBA.com's Doug Ammon.
Thompson scored a career-high 23 points on 8 of 12 shooting, including 4 of 6 from 3-point range. Hollis started the game on fire, converting his first eight shots.
"Clearly, he's got his feet settled and is playing with confidence," 76ers coach Brett Brown said, per the Bucks County Courier Times.
He also added three rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal.
It will be the fifth straight game Wroten has missed while dealing with a knee issue. He is currently in Los Angeles having his knee examined and coach Brett Brown said anything is possible in terms of the diagnosis, reports the Bucks County Courier Times. Guard
The 76ers are 2-point underdogs to the Knicks.
