Thaddeus Young’s Career High Leads Sixers Over Toronto

Mar 12, 2009, 2:44 AM EDT

Thad Young was sitting on a career high 29 points with two free throws in front of him. Surely the young stud would break thirty for the first time in his career, right? Well, not exactly. Despite being a career 75% free throw shooter, Young missed both shots and ended the night with 29. Thad blamed Louis Williams, "I knew I had 29 points. I'm blaming Lou. He jinxed me and had a nice talk with me before I took those free throws."

Another Philly player who decided to show up was Sammy Dalembert who snapped out of a funk of sorts. Sammy put up 19, 13, and 4 and apparently listened to former Sixer great Moses Malone who was at practice earlier in the week and told Sammy "He needs to get mean."

Sammy's roller coaster career continues and he says he isn't happy. The guy is clearly a body full of talent and skill but you have to wonder if he's the kind of player/person that can be a vital part of a championship-caliber team. Not that the Sixers are anywhere near that, but still.
