We’re Coming For You, 2011 Cavs

Sacramento Kings 115 Final

Recap | Box Score

98 Philadelphia 76ers
Thaddeus Young, PF Shot Chart 39 MIN | 5-18 FG | 6-8 FT | 6 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 16 PTS | 0Thad continued his impressive regression from long range tonight, and got bullied on the glass. But I feel really bad for him that he’s on this team, so here’s a B, sport.

Henry Sims, C Shot Chart 31 MIN | 5-12 FG | 10-11 FT | 10 REB | 3 AST | 3 STL | 2 BLK | 3 TO | 20 PTS | 0Sims was far more composed than I would’ve expected of an inexperienced big defending the behemoth that is DeMarcus Cousins. But he got himself to the line 11 times, still grabbed 10 boards and somehow held Cousins to just 12 rebounds.

Michael Carter-Williams, PG Shot Chart 38 MIN | 5-14 FG | 2-3 FT | 7 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 7 TO | 13 PTS | 0Considering the teammates surrounding him and the climate of this season, what I look for most in Dubs’ games comes down to decision-making and perseverance. He always keeps his head up, but tonight, some of the choices he made with the ball were head-scratching. He sometimes tried squeezing the ball into tight, Boogie Cousins-infested passing lanes and too often he settled for jumpers.

Hollis Thompson, SG Shot Chart 28 MIN | 2-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 5 PTS | 0Quite the Hollis-y line tonight. Just five field goal attempts (including a few from long range), yet he managed to eek out a -1 in 28 minutes of a 17-point loss.

Arnett Moultrie, PF Shot Chart 7 MIN | 2-4 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 4 PTS | 0Moultrie’s seven minutes tonight – mostly consisting of long twos and poor screening – were the nightly reminder that he’s still on the team.

Tony Wroten, SG Shot Chart 24 MIN | 5-11 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 2 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 10 PTS | 0He gets an A for this: http://www.csnphilly.com/basketball-philadelphia-sixers/watch-tony-wrotens-killer-crossover

By the Numbers

1,089,240 – The amount of dollars Arnett Moultrie is guaranteed to make this year.

Quote of the Game

“The one thing about players today is that they’re very sensitive, and very fragile. They didn’t grow up with tough coaches.” – Doug Collins
