Sixers’ Approach Not Changing
The first thing Sixers coach Doug Collins talked about after the team’s practice at the United Center today was how sorry he and the team felt for Bulls star Derrick Rose, whose season was lost when he tore an ACL towards the end of Chicago’s Game 1, 103-91, victory.
After that, the focus turned toward how the Sixers will change their approach. They won’t, insisted Collins. The Bulls will now start C.J. Watson at the point. On March 17 in Chicago, without Rose, the Bulls beat the Sixers by 89-80 as Watson led them with 20 points.
“We played them, right here on this floor, and C.J. Watson beat us,” said Collins.
