How Dorell Wright has rediscovered his game

USA TODAY Sports

Dorell Wright has been an essential component of the 76ers' recent success. He has scored 20 or more points in three of Philadelphia's last five games.

After struggling through much of December, Philadelphia 76ers forward Dorell Wright has recently found his way. The veteran led his team with 28 points on Wednesday against the Grizzlies. Bob Cooney at Philly.com explains how Wright was able to turn things around:

Through the past five games, Wright has righted himself. It's not only that he's scored at a 17.6-point clip during that time, or that he's shot 47.4 percent (27-for-57) from the floor, including 18-for-37 (48.6 percent) from three-point range. It's that his all-around game has returned. That was clearly evident in Wednesday's win at Memphis, when Wright led the team with 28 points, battled the bigger Grizzlies for six rebounds and blocked two shots. With Richardson again sidelined, this time with a back strain, the Sixers improved to 4-1 with Wright in the starting lineup, with all of those wins coming on the road.
