Down By A Dozen: Philly Leads Cavs 66-54 At The Half

The Cavaliers find themselves in an all-too-familiar position at halftime tonight in Philadelphia, as the 76ers have had little problem piling up the points and lead the Good Guys by twelve at the intermission, 66-54.

Thaddeus Young leads three ’Sixers in double figures with 17 points, while for Cleveland, J.J. Hickson has eleven points, Anthony Parker leads with three boards, and Mo Williams has five assists.

For the half, the Cavs shot 58% from the field, so it is not the offense that is hurting in tonight's contest. Cleveland is actually shooting better than Philadelphia’s 56.5%, but four extra field goals for the 76ers and four more free throws accounts for the margin at the break.

The Cavaliers' bench, a strength of the team all year, is at it again tonight, scoring 28 points, exactly the same amount as the starters have put up. On the other hand, Philadelphia's starters have outscored their reserves, 38-28.
