If the comeback had resulted in a win we could've chalked this game up as a couple of bad quarters and then a resolve that would serve them well come playoff time. But it didn't. So all what we're left with is just a pitiful effort, again, for about 30 minutes. Then a furious comeback which left just enough time to blow a lead late in the game. The worst of both world's.
Player of The Game:
- Iguodala is your player of the game. Without his insane offensive explosion at the end of the fourth, the Sixers lose this game by double digits. I didn't like the three he took with 40 seconds left, but whatever.
- I don't really know what else to say about this game. It's completely unacceptable to play as poorly against a team like the Jazz as the Sixers did. They should be ashamed of themselves for falling behind by 20 points. I guess they should take pride in the come back, but at the end of the day, they lost a game they absolutely had to have. This team needs a wakeup call. I thought the Milwaukee drubbing would do it, but I guess not.
- If you ever needed to be reminded exactly how much the Sixers miss Dalembert, just imagine he was on the floor tonight. Would they have needed two or three players to guard Al Jefferson?
- Jrue backed up a pitiful game in Milwaukee with another tonight. I don't know if he's hit a wall or just in one of the sophomore valleys, but they need him to snap out of it quickly.
- The missed Iguodala threes weren't what lost this game in overtime, it was the missed bunny by Thad and the missed baseline 12-footer by Brand. Those shots were created by solid offense and they needed to be makes.
- This road trip is quickly becoming an unmitigated disaster for the Sixers.
Iguodala. 23/6/6 and 0 turnovers.
