[tps_title]McConnell with the game-winning shot![/tps_title]

T.J. McConnell helped his case in the Sixers’ point guard battle yesterday against former Arizona teammate Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and the Brooklyn Nets. McConnell, an undrafted rookie, hit a go-ahead shot with 6.5 seconds remaining to lift the Sixers to a 97-95 preseason win in Albany, N.Y. McConnell, who nailed a 17-foot jumper for the game’s decisive basket, posted seven points, six assists and four steals in 20 minutes.

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown had this to say about McConnell’s first preseason game Thursday in which he looked solid against Cleveland: “How good was T.J. last night? Fun. He understands good to great.”
