Poor Thaddeus Young, one of the lone veterans who did not get traded elsewhere, scored 16 points, but was ineffective from the field, shooting 5-18 on the night. It seems that the losing is taking a mental toll on the team, but the optimism from a good off-season can clear that right up.
At this point in the season, the 76ers are officially making a lottery appearance (and likely 2, thanks to New Orleans), so the players need to focus on not developing any bad habits that carry into next season, such as MCW's turnovers and Thad's bad shot selection. The 76ers will essentially be getting three lottery picks next season, as they will be getting Noel back as well. Adding the three of those picks to MCW and Thad will instantly make this a fringe playoff team in its initial season, especially in the Eastern Conference, so we have a lot to look forward to this of-season.
Next Game: Friday, March 14th vs. Indiana Pacers 7pm
