|Thaddeus Young, SF 43 MIN | 11-17 FG | 1-2 FT | 15 REB | 2 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 23 PTS | +16
An outstanding night from Thad was capped with a huge 4th Q. With the Sixers trailing by 1, Thad scored 6 straight to right the ship. He also grabbed 6 boards in the Q which helped him tie a career high with 15.
|Evan Turner, SF 31 MIN | 3-9 FG | 2-4 FT | 6 REB | 6 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 8 PTS | +12
ET is in a wicked funk right now and I am not sure what the answers are for Turner. Watching him get abused by Tyreke Evans was awkward.
|Spencer Hawes, C 26 MIN | 4-13 FG | 2-2 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 10 PTS | -10
I like that Spence came out with an aggressive midnset in the 3rd Q and took the ball to the tin for 4 straight points. However, I didn’t like that my 7-foot tall starting center grabbed only 1 rebound in 26 mins. and continues to launch 3PAs.
|Jrue Holiday, PG 44 MIN | 9-17 FG | 2-2 FT | 6 REB | 7 AST | 1 STL | 2 BLK | 8 TO | 21 PTS | +13
Obviously 8 TOs is not acceptable from you starting PG. So that needs to be corrected and it will be. But overall a solid game from “The Jruth”. However, his overall night was solid. Jrue’s spin move that led to a baseline jumper in the third was smooth.
|Nick Young, SG 34 MIN | 6-12 FG | 7-7 FT | 4 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 20 PTS | -7
All aboard the Swaggy P bandwagon. I am more impressed with his ability to score off the bounce then anything else. Still 1-5 from deep is not good for a starting NBA SG. Nick is playing care free right now as with J-Rich out and Wright in the Do(u)g-house he knows DC has no other choice at SG.
|Lavoy Allen, PF 27 MIN | 2-4 FG | 0-2 FT | 8 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 0 TO | 4 PTS | +15
The tongue lashing he received from Philadunkia earlier this week must have inspired Lavoy as he has played much better in the last two games. Again all I am asking from Lavoy is 6-8 points and 10 rips a night.
|Dorell Wright, SF 17 MIN | 1-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 3 PTS | -7
So our reserve SF grabs 5 boards in 17 mins, but our starting center…I’d like to see DC get this guy 20+ minutes per game.
|Royal Ivey, PG 19 MIN | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | +13
|Kwame Brown, C DNP COACH’S DECISION MIN | FG | FT | REB | AST | STL | BLK | TO | PTS |
At least Kwame will be well rested to battle Vucevic on Monday night.
I’m not sure how much DC is at fault for the Sixers blowing a 19-point lead, but he has to share in the blame. I would also like to have seen more pick-n-roll action for Jrue last night to help him shake off Tyreke Evans who gave Holiday some issues last night.
