Sixers 89, Nets 95: "This is Who They Are" Post-Game Reaction Thread

Gerald Green, in his Jordan XI Concords, waits for mid-air kisses.

Doug Collins said it earlier this week; we'll know who the Sixers truly are after the brutal 3-game stretch against the Nets, Raptors, and Nets again. Like the Sixers have been doing for the past decade, they took the first two pretty easily and when everyone expected them to do the same for the final game, they lose at home to the team with the second worst defense in the league (for the second time this year). Yep, Doug Collins' quote was spot on. This is exactly who they are.

Evan Turner and Jrue Holiday had pretty nice games, which is certainly what I'm most concerned about with this current roster as the season stands. How many games the Sixers win for the rest of the year? I'm pretty sure I care more about the newest plot twist on Gossip Girl. The only thing I'm worried about is the development of these two guys. The offseason is where it really matters at this point.

All-star frontcourt Kris Humphries and Jordan Williams combined for 31 points and 18 rebounds, Collins decided to pull Turner (9-15 at the time) for Louis Williams (3-8 at said point) in the final two minutes (and yes, Lou did get abused on the defensive end immediately), Jodie Meeks played 23 minutes shooting 0-5 from the floor, and the Sixers continue to do exactly what they always do.

Oh, and just to rub it in the faces of those who still had hopes for the division, the Raptors ended up beating the Celtics.

We'll always have #PHIvsNJN though, right?

UPDATE: As pointed out in the comments, see Mike's Twitter account to read an accurate description of this chicken-fungus of a game.
