I'm hung over from celebrating Kansas' victory into the early hours of Sunday morning so this will be brief. And it should be brief as the home-and-home with the 76ers played out the opposite of how I would have predicted had I been foolish enough to predict the outcome of either game.
It sure is easier to win when you put your best players on the floor in the fourth quarter. Mike Bibby played another lousy game but that doesn't mean he's not the best option at point guard in the fourth quarter. So he was on the court and able to make a couple of shots in the last three minutes. Mike Woodson would be well served to treat Al Horford, Josh Smith, and Josh Childress the same way he treats Bibby and Joe Johnson. The Hawks only have five good players. Put them on the floor and the chances of winning improve.
