The Beard constantly encourages the former Iowa State Cyclone to shoot leather off the ball whenever he plays. When the Sixers hosted the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, Niang took that advice to heart and scored a bench-high 15 points on 5-9 shooting from deep after 26 minutes of action. Niang’s efforts earned praise from Harden, who called Niang the 76ers’ “sharp shooter.”
“If he doesn’t shoot the ball, he shouldn’t be in the game,” Harden said per Sports Illustrated. “I said, ‘Shoot the ball.’ Tonight, he did a really good job. He was our shooter.”
Niang is in the middle of his second season with the 76ers after signing as a free agent in 2021. Last year, Niang shot 5.1 threes per game and hit them at a rate of 40.3 percent off the bench. He reprized that role this season, and he has been shooting 40.7 percent from beyond the arc on a career-high 5.7 attempts per game. He also scored a career-best 9.4 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game.
