I know those of who are Nick Young and / or Kwame Brown fans will be upset to hear this news as both players had their best games of the season against the Lakers last night, but there are more important issues to take a look at right now. We’re involved in a 3 game losing streak and defense or lack of it has had a huge role in this slide.
Obviously the Sixers have been without there best offensive weapon and best defensive player for the last two games and Holiday’s absence can not be discounted as a factor in this losing streak. However, the Bulls, Pacers and Lakers were also ALL missing key players when they took the floor and they were able to overcome those challenges. So, I don’t think Holiday’s injury can be completely to blame for the Sixers recent woes. This is the NBA, injuries happen.
