Let's win a game, yeah? Sixers have one more in Boston before yanking the Celtics down to the Wells Fargo Center in a couple days. Stealing one would sure help ease the minds of those still frustrated about the Game One loss. If you didn't check out Derek's preview from earlier, do it.

Spencer Hawes on Garnett is an absolute matchup nightmare. I went back and re-watched Garnett's 12 made field goals, I'm pretty sure not a single one of his jump shots were contested. Spencer Hawes has to give a ton of room off of Rondo/Garnett pick and rolls, and he simply doesn't have the foot speed to recover and even remotely contested Garnett's jump shots. When Brand or Young were in the game, Garnett quickly used his length in the post.

I rewatched those same field goals. Ugly rotations, slow challenges, and just an overall inability to hang on the same level as KG. Let's see if Collins switches it up. For fear of beating a dead horse, more Lavoy Allen would be a good thing if he's playing like he has been lately.

Game Two!
