Tim Frazier Expected To Start For Philadelphia 76ers On Friday

Just one day after being signed to the Philadelphia 76ers active roster, Tim Frazier could accomplish another dream on Friday night: starting in an NBA game.

The former Penn State star is expected to start for the Philadelphia 76ers when they take on the Boston Celtics on Friday night, taking the place of injured point guard Michael Carter-Williams. Carter-Williams is a game-time decision after injuring his foot, per Keith Pompey of the Inquirer, and there’s a strong chance that he won’t play.

“It’s like that Eminem song, you only get one shot, so you can’t be nervous,” Frazier told the team’s website. “I’m just going to go out there and not be nervous and do everything possible for the team to win tonight.”

The team appreciated the reference, tweeting out one of the best GIFs of all time in response.

Ironically, Frazier’s first NBA game comes against the team who he played for in the NBA D-League, the Boston Celtics. In 27 games with the Celtics’ affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, he averaged 16 points, seven rebounds, and nine assists per game. Frazier also played for the Sixers summer league team.

When Frazier gets into the game, he’ll be the first Penn Stater to play in the NBA since Calvin Booth in 2009. He’s the 11th Penn Stater all-time to play in the Association.

Tonight’s game is at 7:30 p.m. and can be seen on CSN-Philly and heard on 97.5 FM in the Philadelphia area.
