They are in the middle of a five games in seven days stretch, and their legs cost them in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks at home. “Tobias had great shots, Furk had great shots. I thought the effect of last night’s game absolutely played a role. It was another back-to-back game of 1989 basketball, which is physical, tough.”
To Korkmaz’s credit, he made a tough corner 3 to force overtime, but one could tell even his legs were gone. “High emotion game yesterday and today. I thought today’s game, we had the looks we wanted, they just didn’t fall. I know myself, I would’ve took all those shots back that I got. I still thought we put ourselves in position to win a game. It didn’t go our way, we’ll rest up and get ready for the next one.”
Luckily for the Sixers, they have two days before their next game on Saturday against the Sacramento Kings at home.
“I just think that the execution down the stretch and making big shots today was a little short on a lot of shots,” said veteran Dwight Howard.
