"I said, ‘Let's not wait 'til Thursday and start getting ready for Miami. I think we have to start getting ready today and tomorrow,' " said Sixers coach Doug Collins after Tuesday's practice. "We want to go in to Fan Appreciation Night and play the way we did all season long."
Collins blames the 41-40 Sixers losing four of their last five on a number of factors. Among them are injuries and clinching a playoff position 1 1/2 weeks earlier.
