Richaun Holmes said that he always plays with a chip on his shoulder.
"I've been overlooked for so long that it's always been that," Holmes said. "There's always been somebody that's bigger, somebody that's supposedly better. It's always been that way." Holmes opened the season as the fourth-string center, but he has a legitimate chance to start the rest of the way -- Jahlil Okafor left Sunday's game with right knee soreness. Coach Brett Brown loves Holmes and called him a "modern-day player," so the 76ers keep dropping hints that he could open the 2017-18 season as the primary backup behind Joel Embiid. With averages of 12.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.1 steals and 0.6 triples in March, Holmes is a must-start player vs. the Magic on Monday.
