76ers Vs. Bulls: Sports Illustrated's Zach Lowe On Lou Williams' Beloved Two-For-One

It's a well-known and oft-used technique, but Lou Williams and the Philadelphia 76ers have taken the two-for-one to new levels.

In a neat piece for Sports Illustrated that examines Williams' tendency to shoot quickly at the end of quarter to maximize his team's number of possessions, Zach Lowe suggests a new name for the common play: the Lou-for-one.

"There's an art to it," said Sixers coach Doug Collins, who's famous for expounding on the virtues of the two-for-one during his time as a TV analyst. Williams has a good feel for time and situation, but sometimes he will look over at Collins to see if the coach thinks aggressively chasing the two-for-one is the right play.

Collins said at practice Thursday he'd prefer Williams take the first shot early enough so that the Sixers have between 10 and 12 seconds for the final possession of the quarter. Assuming the opponent uses as much of the 24-second clock as possible on the in-between possession, that timetable would require Williams to launch the first shot of the two-for-one with about 35 seconds left on the game clock.

READ LOWE'S WHOLE PIECE for some great quotes about the Lou-for-one from Williams, Derrick Rose, Doug Collins, Jodie Meeks, Evan Turner and Rod Thorn.

76ers Vs. Bulls Final Score: Andre Iguodala Leads Sixers In 98-82 Win

The Philadelphia 76ers answered some questions and furthered their case to be considered among the league's elite on Wednesday night. Led by Andre Iguodala, they took down Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls by a final score of 98-82.

It was their fourth straight win since a Jan. 25 overtime loss to the New Jersey Nets. These Bulls were no Nets. They owned an NBA-best 18-5 record before tonight's loss.

Iguodala stole the evening, leading the way with 19 points. He threw in nine rebounds and four assists in the effort. That bested Derrick Rose's 18 points.

Thaddeus Young also had 19 points for the Sixers. Lavoy Allen and Lou Williams had 14 points each, all off the bench. Still, it was Iguodala who walked off the court to a standing ovation from the audience.

Chicago never got closer than 12 points.

On Friday, it's a rematch with the Miami Heat, who beat the 76ers 113-92 on Jan. 21. Iguodala was limited to four points in that game.
