Collins Puts Late Game Scoring Drought On Him

Collins Puts Late Game Scoring Drought On Him

Another game lost in the final minutes with story lines we're all too familiar with around this Sixers team. Solid effort and real nice defense couldn't overcome the awful rebounding and inability to hit shots in the fourth quarter when they mattered most.

It's easy to point at the final plays of the game, and that would ignore the first 46 minutes of solid play, but we're going to do it anyway. First, the inbound play to Lou Williams who was double teamed and failed to get a shot off; Coach Collins basically put the blame on his shoulders once again, noting he tried everything he could to get his team a bucket and he simply failed them there. The frustration was evident.

And then there was the offensive rebound by Russell Westbrook on Kevin Durant's missed free throw that basically was the final nail in the coffin. While Westbrook is about as beastly a player as the NBA has to offer, Andre Iguodala simply can't allow that to happen. An exclamation point on the fact that the Sixers allowed OKC wayyyyy too many offensive boards and second and third-chance points.

Why sports are awesome: Joel Embiid's Twitter and Rhys Hoskins

Sports Ilustrated gets it. The characters in Philadelphia sports are some of the best in the world right now.

On SI's list of "77 Reasons Why We Love Sports," the alien otherwise known as Rhys Hoskins and Joel Embiid's Twitter both make appearances. While the NFL Red Zone Channel inexplicably comes in at No. 1, Embiid's Twitter comes in at a worthy No. 2. His recent tweet about the Los Angeles Chargers' beleaguered rookie kicker is a great example of why Embiid is a must-follow.

Hoskins, the Phillies' record-breaking slugger, comes in at No. 65. His latest mind-bending accomplishment is becoming the fastest player ever to 45 RBIs. With Hoskins' ridiculous natural power and impressive plate discipline, this stretch doesn't look like a fluke. He could be one of the top reasons Philadelphians love sports for the next 15 years.
