PORTLAND – Matisse Thybulle is purposely oblivious. The 76ers rookie doesn’t keep up with the NBA statistical rankings. So Thybulle was unaware that he was the league’s leader in steals heading into Saturday night’s 129-128 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. “I try not to look at the numbers, because for me all the defensive [ones] just come from hustle and just getting lost in the game,” he said after the shootaround Saturday.Consciously trying to get steals has never worked for him.“So it’s exciting to see the numbers,” he said. “But do I really worry about them?
