Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE
The Sixers tried. They really, really tried. But the Heat are great, and the Sixers are not. This is not news.
You can't say the Sixers didn't try. But you can say they certainly are not good enough to keep anywhere near the level that Miami plays at. In order to compete with Miami, the Sixers need Bynum. Tonight, they did not have Bynum, and that showed in the results.
Dorell Wright, Nick Young, and Jrue Holiday, who led the Sixers with 21 points, all stood out. Evan Turner was not completely embarrassed guarding LeBron James. Spencer Hawes had a moment where he rejected a LeBron shot with authority.
Arnett Moultrie spent the entire relevant portion of the game on the bench because why play a rookie who has shown a little promise when you can play the useless Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen instead. And this was a day where Kwame did not play either!
LeBron's the best. The Sixers are not. 114-90. Sounds right.
