Well it would be far from a stretch to say that the Philadelphia 76ers have been particularly impressive in the last few games. Also after a disappointing loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night, 93-88, the Sixers need to find a spark in their offense to bring more hope back to the "City of Brotherly Love."
There needs to be an understanding that Jrue Holiday and (as much as it pains me to say this) Evan Turner can't continue to carry the entire load for the struggling Sixers. Without the presence of the badly battered bowling bandit Andrew Bynum, the Sixers lack a serious low-post presence offensively and defensively. Additionally, Thad Young can't contribute 16 or more points a night, he just can't do it yet, so there has to be someone else.
Looking at the Sixers post problems, Spencer Hawes, Kwame Brown, Arnett Moultrie (who may be taking a trip to the NBA D-League soon) are all not solutions to this on-going problem. This is something can only be fixed, sadly, either with Bynum or increased and consistent guard play.
Better get out a good cheesteak, it's going to be a long stretch for the 10-7 overall 76ers, positive is that the Sixers are still 3rd in the division, for now at least.
