Last Night’s Sixers Loss In Doug Collins’ Words, Christmas Shopping a Distraction

"I looked at our coaches and I said 'our guys, they're just not there tonight.' For whatever reason, we just weren't there. I don't know if it was a couple nights in between games in the same city. And just guys… that time of the year where you're out Christmas shopping and getting stuff taken care of," Collins said. "It was like five strangers. I came into the time out and I said 'guys, what are we running?' I didn't even know what plays we were running."

Yep, Dougie hit the nail on the head with that one. The Sixers lost by 45 points last night.
