The Philadelphia 76ers have taken a 44-42 lead into halftime of Game 4 of an Eastern Conference playoff showdown with the visiting Chicago Bulls. And they wouldn't have been able to do it without the play of Spencer Hawes, who has already tallied 17 points and collected six rebounds.
Hawes tallied nine of his 17 in the second quarter, and nailed this buzzer-beating 3-point that gave the Sixers a two-point lead over the victory-hungry Bulls.
Also in the first half, Hawes showed off some his nifty passing skills.
Enter Sunday's contest, Hawes was averaging just nine points and five rebounds per game. Seems like he's playing the right game at the right time.
Meanwhile, this happened too in the first half.
