Notes From The Sixers’ 106-98 Win Over Toronto76ers, BREAKING NEWS, News Wednesday, November 21st, 2012
- This was Nick Young’s night. Young was brilliant off of the bench, leading the Sixers with 23 points. He even helped create some scoring opportunities for other players with his four assists. Young isn’t typically a player who does a lot of passing. He helped spark the team’s rally in the second half.
- Jason Richardson played a heck of a game himself. The veteran hit four three-pointers on his way to scoring 21 points. J-Rich’s toughness was on display once again. In the third quarter, the sharpshooter had his head unintentionally stepped on and slammed into the hardwood by Toronto’s Kyle Lowry. The fear was that Richardson may have suffered a concussion, but after a brief trip to the locker room he returned to hit some key shots late in the fourth quarter to seal the victory.
- Jrue Holiday continued his spectacular play with a double-double with 19 points and 12 assists. He continues to limit his turnovers, and only committed three in this game.
- Solid game for Thaddeus Young. The former top draft pick finished with 18 points and seven boards. He also picked up a couple of steals.
- While Richardson was injured, Dorell Wright had an opportunity to play a few more minutes and he was able to knock down a three in his limited action.
- Rebounding was a bit of an issue once again. Toronto outrebounded the Sixers 48-41, and 12 of those were off of the offensive glass. This will likely continue to be a problem for this team until Andrew Bynum joins them.
- The Sixers trailed going into the fourth quarter, but closed the game out with a 20-6 run.
