I was taking notes in the first half to write a full recap, but abandoned that in the third quarter. I didn't want to put more effort into the write-up than the Sixers put into the game. So here you have it. A lazy, half-hearted, woefully inadequate write-up. I mailed this one in. It was the best representation of the game I could think of.
A couple of quick questions to ponder, then you can use this thread to complain:
- Most effective big men of the game were clearly Carlos Boozer and Kurt Thomas (you read that right). Does third place go to Omer Asik? Or did Brand edge him out (despite shooting 2-9)?
- Which created more suspense: whether Scalabrine would score or whether the Sixers would lose by 50?
- Bigger surprise: Scalabrine getting in or Songaila ?
