Sixers: Matisse Thybulle’s patience paid off against the Cavs

Matisse Thybulle needed a big night. Going into training camp this offseason, there has been a lot of talk about Thybulle’s offensive value.

As the standout defender has struggled to improve his shooting over his first three NBA seasons, Thybulle has seen his minutes dissipate as he’s become more of a defensive specialist rather than a two-way contributor.

Throughout the offseason, Thybulle worked to improve his offense. The young wing has reportedly been participating in workouts with Bulls star DeMar DeRozan and Blazers star Damian Lillard. When he joined his 76ers teammates for training camp in Charleston, veterans like Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid recognized Thybulle’s improved value on offense.
