The Stat Line Of The Night – 04/24/09 – Thaddeus Young
Total Pro Sports – The Orlando Magic traveled to Philadelphia to regain home court advantage and were stopped by the Sixers, losing the game in the final seconds 98-96.
The player of the game was Thaddeus Young…………….who?????? That’s right Sixers small forward Thaddeus Young didn’t have an outstanding night from the field as he only had 6 points. But 2 of those 6 points were the most important in the game as he scored the game winning basket, ultimately making him “The Stat Line Of The Night” for Friday April 24th, 2009. The Sixers now hold a 2-1 series lead over the Magic.
Instead of an assist or even worse, a turnover, Young made the biggest shot of his life.
Young’s driving layup with two seconds left lifted Philadelphia to a 96-94 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night, giving the 76ers a surprising 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series.
“It was the biggest shot ever for me,” Young said. “It was a lucky shot. I’m glad I hit it. I’m glad the ball was in my hands.”
