|Thaddeus Young, SF 34 MIN | 9-15 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 18 PTS | -18
Thad only grabbed 1 rebound all night, had a dunk blocked by Faried in the 1st Q and threw up an air ball in the 2nd, but still a decent night by #21. Despite the air ball, he scored 10 points in the 2nd Q and kept DEN from running away with this one.
|Evan Turner, SF 31 MIN | 6-12 FG | 0-2 FT | 4 REB | 0 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 6 TO | 12 PTS | +7
I thought Turner did some nice things in this game, but i won’t talk about any of them because of the horrific late 4th Q he had last night (see notes after the jump). Ohh yeah, the alley-oop he threw to Moultrie in the 1st Q was awful as well.
|Spencer Hawes, C 38 MIN | 8-11 FG | 0-0 FT | 12 REB | 5 AST | 0 STL | 4 BLK | 3 TO | 17 PTS | +22
Spence provided no resistance in the defensive paint, but he did post another double-double. The 4 blocks were nice as well. At one point in the 1st Q he scored 5 straight at helped the Sixers build a 9 point lead. m
|Jrue Holiday, PG 38 MIN | 6-12 FG | 3-3 FT | 6 REB | 15 AST | 4 STL | 1 BLK | 5 TO | 18 PTS | +3
With Ty Lawson out of the game, Holiday racked up a great double-double. He provided balanced scoring all night. However, his 5 TOs aren’t ideal, but I can live with it given his high usage last night. Jrue got a T in his second straight game and the shot clock violation in the 4th Q drove me nuts.
|Damien Wilkins, SG 39 MIN | 10-15 FG | 2-4 FT | 1 REB | 2 AST | 4 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 24 PTS | +11
I’ll just tip my cap here to a job well done and move on…
|Arnett Moultrie, PF 22 MIN | 3-6 FG | 2-2 FT | 8 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 8 PTS | -19
A rough start in this one for #5 in this one. In the 1st Q he had a shot snatched out of the air by JaVale McGee. Then in the 2nd Q Faried treated Moultrie like a child when he ripped a rebound away from the Sixers rookie. But Moultrie hung tough and contributed nicely in the 2nd half.
|Dorell Wright, SF 15 MIN | 0-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 0 PTS | -17
I feel like I have written the following a lot this season…Wright has one job — hit open J’s and last night he did not do that job.
|Charles Jenkins, PG 6 MIN | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | -4
|Royal Ivey, PG 17 MIN | 1-4 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 3 PTS | -12
That’s two straight games where the highly reliable Ivey has not shot the ball well.
|Lavoy Allen, C DNP COACH’S DECISION MIN | FG | FT | REB | AST | STL | BLK | TO | PTS |
|Kwame Brown, C DNP COACH’S DECISION MIN | FG | FT | REB | AST | STL | BLK | TO | PTS |
Kwame-palooza continued with a stop in Denver last night.
I didn’t love his post game comments as he basically threw the team under the bus (not that they didn’t deserve it). I am also wondering where the inside-out offense from the 3-1 home streak has gone now that the Sixers are out on the road.
