Notes From The Sixers’ 99-93 Win Over Utah

The Philadelphia 76ers snapped their two-game losing streak on Friday night, taking down the Utah Jazz 99-93 in Philadelphia. The Sixers now hold a 5-4 record.

  • This was a nice bounce-back victory for the Sixers after a hideous performance against the previously winless Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. Tonight the Sixers shot the ball well, connecting on 46% of their field goals, and hit 10-18 three-point shots.
  • Jrue Holiday led the Sixers with 26 points, and added seven assists and six rebounds. He’s becoming the go-to guy on this team with Andrew Bynum sidelined.
  • Speaking of Bynum, the former Laker revealed in an interview today that he has suffered yet another setback in his knee rehab. The swelling in his knee just won’t go down. The Sixers won’t be seeing their centerpiece take the court anytime soon.
  • Even though Bynum hasn’t given the Sixers anything yet, the other piece of this summer’s big trade has. I love what Jason Richardson has brought to this team so far. J-Rich has given Doug Collins a stabilizing veteran presence that can do a little bit of everything. The veteran finished tonight’s game with 20 points, eight rebounds, two assists, and two steals. He also hit five three-pointers.
  • LaVoy Allen has played a couple of quality games in a row now. The second-year player scored 10 points and gathered eight boards off of the bench tonight.
  • Dorell Wright played just over five minutes tonight. The healthy return of Richardson will mean less run for Wright.
  • I thought Kwame Brown did a decent job tonight. The veteran isn’t a game-changer, but he’s a solid defensive presence. He did a good job limiting the damage that Al Jefferson was able to do.

A good and much needed win for the 76ers over a quality Team
It’s going to be an up & down Season thru the first 40 Games or so until they get a good rhythm and rotation going only to have to re-adjust again whenever Bynum returns which is provably a good 2 months away, so they need to move forward and figure their playing time/rotation along the front line in the meanwhile with Allen,Brown, Hawes and rookie Moultrie
