Thaddeus Young Leads Sixers Over Cavaliers 117-97

Thaddeus Young came off the bench tonight to dominate the Cleveland Cavaliers 117-97 and to give the Sixers their fourth win in five games. It was the Sixers' highest point total of the season. Thad had a game-high 26 points, pulled down 11 boards, and went a ridiculous 11-12 from the field. It was one of those nights where pretty much everyone fills up the stat sheet. Jodie Meeks started his second straight game and provided 16 points, Jrue Holiday had 16 himself to go along with seven dimes, Iguodala had one of those Iguodala-esque nights where he has 13 points, 6 boards, and 7 assists.Lou Williams provided 19 from the bench, 13 of which came in the fourth quarter.

Even Spencer Hawes got in the action pulling down a game-high 12 boards.

It was the fifth straight loss for a Cavs team that has just been reeling since getting worked in back-to-back games by the Celtics and the Heat.

The Sixers move to 7-14 on the year, with Boston coming to town on Thursday.
