McConnell has yet to attempt a foul shot

BOSTON  – T.J. McConnell does a great job of finding teammates.

So much so the 76ers point guard rarely looks for his own shot driving the lane. That's a major reason why he hasn't attempted a single foul shot this season. If you're counting, he's gone 15 games and 429 minutes without going to the foul line.
"To not get to the free foul line is not a concern," McConnell said Wednesday morning. "It's weird that it hasn't happened. I'm not going to in there to throw up some crap shot just to go to the line.

"I'm just trying to get people the ball and if it happens, it happens."

A pass-first player, McConnell has only attempts five field goal attempts per game.  He averages 6.9 points and 6.5 assists.
