Philly shooting almost 51% for the game.

I don't buy fatigue as the reason for this debacle. They weren't fatigued in the first quarter. They were listless, missing all the 50/50 opportunities, and a step slow. But I lay that to lack of effort rather than fatigue.

I actually wish fatigue were the culprit because listlessness and lack of effort are worse transgressions long-term.

I thought I saw evidence of fatigue in their jump shooting in the 1st, personally.

Still, the Sixers out executed us.

Heinsohn just made what I thought was an interesting point. He and Mike were talking about the difference in scores then and now. He mentioned that one reason is that big men now inbound the ball after a basket. Although he didn't expand on that remark, I assume that he meant it slows down the game while the big lopes down the floor. And he's right. The two guards used to bring the ball up, which also prevented traps like Pierce found himself in last night.

I heard Tommy say that the other night. I don't understand why the change. What's the advantage of making the big guys arrive last when they have the furthest to go, baseline to baseline vs foul line to foul line?

How can a professional basketball player be fatigued when the game starts? Exhausting warmups? I can see that players might be pacing themselves to gird against later fatigue. And maybe tired legs might have affected some jumpers (although I credit the Philly defense with contesting everything). But I personally think that either the fatigue thing is vastly overrated or all NBA players ought to retire at age 30 (when they could probably afford to do so anyway).

What does Moore have to do to get into a game these days? Especially this one!

My Tommy Award tonight goes to Bob Heckler, who's always the first one on the Game-on Thread, despite the fact that he's working his way through every foreign language in hassling game feeds.

Thanks, Bob.

Nice posting with everyone.

Thankfully Arizona State vs. Stanford just started. I'll go catch that and cleanse my brain from what little I just saw.

Try again Friday.

Good night.

Pietrus must be exhausted from playing his 22 minutes a night. Maybe that explains his big fat zero point total tonight. Eleven straight horrid games for him now.

It doesn't explain the other 10 games, but apparently he left with an injury of some type tonight. But it's true that he's turning from the second best surprise (after Bass) to the single biggest disappointment of the season.

For me the single biggest disappointment of the season was the injury to Jeff Green. Granted, it came in the pre-season but it has massively affected us ALL season.
