- The Sixers were blown away in the first quarter, getting outscored 36-20.
- Three-point defense was terrible last night, the team allowed C.J. Miles to drill 10-three pointers.
- Michael Carter-Williams did most of the scoring for the Sixers, dropping 33 points to go with six boards and five assists.
- Thaddeus Young cooled off, missing all seven of his shot attempts. Young had been on a scoring tear lately, regularly scoring 20 or more.
- Evan Turner scored just 4 points, and played only 17 minutes.
- Spencer Hawes continues to play poorly, scoring only nine points and picking up just three rebounds.
It’s good to see the Sixers back on a losing streak.
After they had ripped off four in a row, they were beginning to concern me that they might be making a push to get back into the playoff picture.
Also of note, the Cavaliers pulled the plug on the Andrew Bynum experiment, sending him and three future picks to the Bulls for Luol Deng. The Bulls have since waived Bynum, signifying to me that they want no part of the talented but troubled center.
Is this the end of the line for Bynum?
Cleveland may have been his last chance to get himself right. After he’s proven to be more trouble than he’s worth for both the Cavs and Sixers, what team is going to want to bother with him at this point?
