Notes From The Sixers’ 104-101 Win Over Phoenix76ers, BREAKING NEWS, News Sunday, November 25th, 2012
- What a game by Jrue Holiday. The point guard set a career-high with 33 points, and also handed out 13 assists. He’s the unquestioned star of this team right now.
- Evan Turner got off to a fast start, knocking down a pair of three-pointers to begin the game. However, the third-year guard struggled with his shot from that point on, hitting just two his final nine shots. Turner did finish with a near double-double, putting up 16 points and nine rebounds.
- Give Jason Richardson a lot of credit for toughing it out tonight. The veteran reinjured his ankle last night against the Thunder, but was still able to suit up and knock down a couple of threes to help his team win tonight.
- Doug Collins is trying to give rookies Malik Wayns and Arnett Moultrie opportunities to force their way into the rotation. Wayns is being given a shot to be the backup point guard, and saw seven minutes of action while scoring seven points off of the bench. The Sixers need a big man to step up and give the team a rebounding presence and they hope that Moultrie can eventually be that guy. Tonight the first-round pick played seven minutes without registering a single statistic.
- After a week of hot shooting off of the bench, Nick Young cooled off noticeably tonight. He played just over 12 minutes, and connected on just one of his four field goals.
- The Suns aren’t a very good team. They’ve got some talented players, but they don’t have a reliable go-to guy at the moment, and they’ve spent the last week shuffling their starting lineup in search of an effective combination.
