The Philadelphia 76ers got a big win in Game 4 of their NBA Playoff series with the Chicago Bulls on Sunday and now hold a 3-1 advantage in the series. Sixers center Spencer Hawes dominated with 22 points and eight rebounds on 9-11 shooting in the 89-82 victory. It was the second straight game with 20+ points for Hawes.
Sixers head coach Doug Collins felt that Hawes rushed things too much right when he came back from injury but has settled in. Hawes averaged 9.6 points and 7.3 rebounds per game in his 37 regular season games.
Hawes feels that he is back to the shape he was in before the injury occurred. He credited his teammates for getting him easy looks at the basket in the last two games. He's shooting 16-26 in the last two playoff games.
