• Okafor suspended for two games by ‘disappointed’ 76ers


    PHILADELPHIA: Jahlil Okafor was suspended for two games on Wednesday Thursday in Manila) by the Philadelphia 76ers after the latest video surfaced of the 19-year-old rookie center fighting outside a Boston nightclub. The ban comes a day after the 76ers ended a 28-game losing streak over two seasons with a home victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, their first victory of the 2015-16 campaign after opening with 18 consecutive losses. Okafor has been involved with two altercations leaving nightclubs, the most recent after a loss in Boston that saw TMZ release two videos detailing Okafor punching out hecklers. He also was stopped on a bridge by police last month driving 108mph (173 kph) in a zone where 40mph is considered reckless.
