Notes From The Sixers’ 104-92 Loss To Utah76ers, BREAKING NEWS, News Saturday, March 8th, 2014
- The Sixers certainly made this one a competitive game. They played the Jazz pretty evenly through three quarters, and the game was well within reach with the team being down only three points with just over a minute to go.
- The Sixers actually led by two going into halftime, but were outscored 25-18 in the third.
- Tony Wroten exploded for 30 points on 12-15 shooting. He became the focal point of the Sixer attack, and nearly carried the team to a win on his own.
- Michael Carter-Williams had a wretched shooting night, connecting on just 2-13 shots. He didn’t get to the free throw line at all. MCW was still able to contribute nine assists, seven rebounds, and five steals.
- Thaddeus Young scored 18 points, but did not collect a single rebound.
- Henry Sims continues to start at center, and scored just five points to go with four rebounds.
- James Anderson was third on the team in scoring with 16, and also pulled down six rebounds.
- Arnett Moultrie played just over seven minutes once again, scoring just two points and collecting a single rebound.
This could very well have been this team’s best shot to win a game between now and the end of the season.
The Sixers did what they could to snap their losing streak, and nearly pulled it off, but they just couldn’t sustain a strong enough effort as they ran out of steam in the final minutes.
Its incredible just how inept the Sixer big men are on the glass. You have your starting point guard and shooting guard leading the way in rebounds with seven and six respectively, while the starting power forward doesn’t get a single rebound and the starting center grabs only four. If any stat is indicative of just how abysmal this roster currently is, its those numbers from tonight.
