Philadelphia 76ers vs. Charlotte Bobcats: Sixers Snap Losing Streak

Professor BushCorrespondent IIIMarch 20, 2012

The Philadelphia 76ers found the prescription for ending their losing streak: playing the Charlotte Bobcats. While the game was close through the first two quarters, the Sixers blew the game open in the third period and ended up winning 105-80.

The Sixers' offense was balanced, as usual. The team shot 53 percent from the floor and 89 percent from the free-throw line. You can't ask for better than that.

Spencer Hawes had a double-double plus three blocked shots. Thaddeus Young and Jrue Holiday each scored 20 points. Lou Williams had 19 and Elton Brand finished with 16. While Andre Iguodala did not score a lot, he contributed several nice assists that led to easy buckets for his teammates. At times, Young showed great determination in getting to the basket.

Maybe one point of concern for the team is Nikola Vucevic. He went scoreless for the third time in the last five games. In some of those games he was clearly intimidated by opposing bigs. But that should not have been the case tonight. He just seems to get lost in the shuffle, which is what I suppose we should expect from a rookie sometimes.

This game should be a good confidence booster for the Sixers, especially Williams, who had been off the mark in the three consecutive losses. The team needs him to be on target for the key games with Knicks and Celtics at home this week.
