Rebounding optional as Sixers fall to Bobcats
Updated: March 28, 2009

Thaddeus Young led all Sixers with a mammoth 7 total rebounds as the Sixers fell to the Bobcats in a woeful Eastern conference matchup between two teams that barely have any business contending for the playoffs.

The Sixers appeared to once again shove rebounding down the list of game priorities just behind standing around watching the other team score at will. They were outrebounded 41 to 23 in the contest and have been outrebounded by 10 or more in four of their last 21 games.

“We haven’t paid much attention to grabbing boards lately,” said Thaddeus Young, who has topped double-digits in rebounds only three times this season. “We figure in the Eastern conference, we can get by until at least the semifinals without pulling down a single rebound anyway, so I’m sure we’ll be fine.”
