GAME 2 started just how Ben Simmons and his Philadelphia 76ers would’ve wanted.

But, entering the half, things aren’t looking good.

The Miami Heat led the 76ers 56-42 entering the main break, with the play of Dwyane Wade, combined with a physical defensive effort, lifting Eric Spoelstra’s team in the first half.

And after coming off second-best in his heated match-up with Paul George in Game 1 of the Thunder-Jazz first round playoff series, the Aussie is keen to get back on the court.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“It’s great, I love it. Hope we do it again,” Ingles told reporters after Utah training.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

George starred for the Thunder in their 116-108 win — dropping 36 points (8-11 3FG) — and had a bit to say to Ingles both during the game, and after.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“It’s very unlikely he [Ingles] will beat me off the dribble so I’ll take my chances with foot speed,” the Thunder star told media.

Ingles was disappointing by his standards, putting up 13 points, two rebounds, and an assist in his 31 minutes; with a smothering George making life difficult for him.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I’ll take all the shots that I get within the flow of our offence – if that’s 25 or 2,” a typically relaxed Ingles said.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“Obviously I’ll be aggressive when my time comes and when I get the ball in positions to be, but I’m not going to go out of our offence to get more shots.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I think Ricky, Donovan got shots that they’ve made all year – they didn’t make some of them, they made some of them – but I’ll be aggressive, I’ll stay aggressive.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I’m not gonna go out there and run out to the half-court and take the ball off Donovan and tell him to go stand in the corner.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I think all season really, there have been times where I’ve played – you would know stats – but millions of pick and rolls in a game and times where I’ve played barely any.”

“},{“contentType”:”VIDEO”,”marbleApiEnv”:”prod”,”playerType”:”player”,”videoId”:675172},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

As for his newly-formed feud with George, the Aussie forward isn’t quite sure where it started.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“I have no history with him, I don’t know him – I’ve never spoken to him in my life,” Ingles said.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“He’s a good all-round player. He’s obviously good in an iso situation – he can shoot threes, mid-range and kind of get on the rim as well.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“He’s 6’8”, athletic – he can be on the charge, circling, contesting a shot in a split second.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

“So I think for me, [it’s] just [about] making the right reads – knowing when he’s in there, and to catch and shoot it, or knowing when I can go by him.”

CAMERON Gliddon has signed a multi-year deal with the Brisbane Bullets, multiple sources told foxsports.com.au and Fox Sports News.

“,”foxsportsLink”:”https://www.foxsports.com.au/basketball/nbl/cameron-gliddon-signs-threeyear-deal-with-brisbane-bullets-sources/news-story/8fdbf6d687b4e6ba2bc993fe751a0d71″,”dynamicMetadata”:{“route”:”basketball/nbl”,”link”:”https://www.foxsports.com.au/basketball/nbl/cameron-gliddon-signs-threeyear-deal-with-brisbane-bullets-sources/news-story/8fdbf6d687b4e6ba2bc993fe751a0d71″,”canonical”:”https://www.foxsports.com.au/basketball/nbl/cameron-gliddon-signs-threeyear-deal-with-brisbane-bullets-sources/news-story/8fdbf6d687b4e6ba2bc993fe751a0d71″,”sectionCaption”:”NBL”},”subtitle”:”Cameron Gliddon signs three-year deal with Brisbane Bullets — sources”,”title”:”Bullets sign Gliddon to multi-year deal”,”seoHeadline”:”Cameron Gliddon signs three-year deal with Brisbane Bullets — sources”,”keywords”:[“three-year deal”,”multi-year deal”,”head coach”,”multiple sources”,”veteran perimeter presence”,”covers basketball”,”agency process”,”Australian players”,”Perth”,”Western Australia”,”Australia”,”Australia and New Zealand”,”Oceania”,”Fox Sports News”,”NBL Free Agency”,”Mike Kelly”,”Aaron Fearne”,”Cameron Gliddon”,”Greg Hire”,”Damian Martin”],”thumbnailImageLink”:”https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/c9133743fb4a96e83cfec3be806a64df?width=320&height=240″,”originalSource”:”FOX SPORTS”,”byline”:”Olgun Uluc and Joshua Garlepp”,”bylineNames”:[“Olgun Uluc and Joshua Garlepp”],”paragraphs”:[{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

The contract is a three-year deal, sources said, with Gliddon set to play for Boomers head coach, Andrej Lemanis, whom he became accustomed with during the course of Australia’s FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Having spent the first six years of his professional career with the Cairns Taipans, the 6’6 guard signalled he wanted a change in scenery. Gliddon averaged 12.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.8 assists last season, and will add a veteran perimeter presence to a Bullets franchise that’s struggled since its reboot in 2016.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Gliddon received strong interest from his hometown club, the Perth Wildcats, according to one source, but committed to the Bullets early in his free agency process. With Greg Hire’s future with the Wildcats not yet known, Gliddon would potentially have been the only Western Australian junior signed to Trevor Gleeson’s team for the 2018-2019 season, but instead will join the Bullets, who finished at the bottom of the NBL ladder at the end of the 2017-18 season.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

The Bullets have also signed five-time NBL champion, Mika Vukona.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Gliddon finished 13th in the 2018 NBL MVP voting, and earned the second most amount of votes among Australian players. He helped the Taipans to an 11-17 record this past season.

“},{“contentType”:”IMAGE”,”link”:”https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/03e5ad4417ca775c7dbc2fbaae49f8d5″,”title”:”Damian Martin and Cameron Gliddon of Australia.”,”originalSource”:”Getty Images”,”width”:650,”height”:366},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

The departure of Gliddon marked a busy off-season for the Taipans, with the team already choosing not to re-sign head coach, Aaron Fearne, before receiving the news that Gliddon, their captain, also won’t be returning. The Taipans just named United assistant, Mike Kelly, as their new head coach.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

Gliddon joined the NBL in 2012 after a successful college career at the NAIA level, with Concordia.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

He won the 2013 Rookie of the Year award, eventually announcing himself as one of the premier local guards in the league.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

The Perth native is coming off one of the most productive seasons of his NBL career, and recently helped the Australian national team to a gold medal at the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup.

“},{“contentType”:”HTML”,”html”:”

NBL Free Agency is officially underway, with teams now allowed to sign new players.
