When Dorell Wright is on, so are the 76ers

US PRESSWIRE

CSN Philly's Gordie Jones writes that the 76ers need Dorell Wright to be consistent because when he is, the team is at its best.

When the Sixers were at their worst, Dorell Wright was at his best. The veteran swingman was "the one ray of sunshine" during the team's five-game losing streak, coach Doug Collins said Friday night, before the slump ended with a victory over Atlanta.

Now the question is, can Wright continue to chase the clouds away? Because the Sixers need him, now more than ever. They need him to be a consistent factor off their bench, which lacks the punch it packed in Collins' first two years on the job. They need him to step up during the potentially season-defining eight-game road trip that begins Sunday in Brooklyn.
