|Lavoy Allen, PF 24 MIN | 3-6 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 1 AST | 6 PTS | 0
I actually thought Lavoy did a respectable job on both ends of the floor last night, but he was one of the few who came to play.
|Thaddeus Young, SF 27 MIN | 6-10 FG | 1-1 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 13 PTS | -8
In the 3rd Q Thad made a valiant effort to pull this game out in the for the Sixers. He put up 7 straight and 9 overall in the Q, but even his high energy on defense and his scoring burst was not enough to get the Sixers over the hump. I also thought he did a decent job of defending Love by fronting the big man. Still, he has to grab more then 2 boards a game.
|Evan Turner, SF 36 MIN | 8-20 FG | 1-3 FT | 5 REB | 2 AST | 19 PTS | -12
Don’t let the stats fool you, this was a very inefficient 19 points (on 20 FGAs) by ET. Too many times he jacked up shots early in the clock without moving the ball via the pass even once.
|Jrue Holiday, PG 31 MIN | 5-13 FG | 3-4 FT | 5 REB | 9 AST | 13 PTS | -13
Arguably the worst defensive game I have ever seen Jrue play. He looked clueless at times vs. the Wolves guards.
|Jason Richardson, SG 30 MIN | 6-10 FG | 2-4 FT | 7 REB | 4 AST | 14 PTS | -12
J-Rich came out early and established a nice rhythm for himself — 8 quick points. He scored in a variety of ways — posting up Ridnour; grabbing an OREB as well as hitting a jumper. Unfortunately none of the other Sixers cared to follow his lead.
|Arnett Moultrie, PF 11 MIN | 1-3 FG | 2-5 FT | 4 REB | 1 AST | 4 PTS | +3
I know it was garbage time, but I like what I saw from this kid. He had 3 OREBs which is more than I can say for any other 76er.
|Dorell Wright, SF 12 MIN | 2-6 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 1 AST | 6 PTS | -10
Eventually this guy is going to get his jumper popping, right?!?
|Kwame Brown, C 12 MIN | 0-0 FG | 1-2 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 1 PTS | -13What would like me to say here? He takes up space and that’s really it.|
|Maalik Wayns, PG 14 MIN | 1-6 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 2 AST | 2 PTS | -1
If Wayns would just slow down a little on (or pass up entirely) the long jumpers, I think he would be much more effective for the Sixers. We have enough jump shooters on this team, his job is to push the ball up the floor on the break or take it to the rim in the half-court. Let’s stick to that, thanks.
|Royal Ivey, PG 2 MIN | 0-0 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 0 PTS | 0
He was simply awesome in his 2 mins. of play (Sarcasm here).
|Damien Wilkins, SG 19 MIN | 1-3 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 2 AST | 4 PTS | -3
I liked his physical defensive effort in this game (as I always do) and I’m not sure why DC didn’t throw him into the game a little earlier in an attempt to slow down the Wolves. Why not try it???
