Spencer Hawes ladies and gentlemen.

With the Sixers down three and 3.9 seconds left against the Bucks, Hawes set a pick then slid down the sideline and wasn’t option No. 1 on the play — plus Gary Neal had him well defended — but Hawes got the pass and went up with it, knocking down the shot to tie the game.

The Sixers won in overtime 115-107. Hawes finished with 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting.

    If I’m a Western Conference Team, I’m on the phone with Sam Hinkie right now. Spencer Hawes has been great all year and he’s been a match-up nightmare for opposing centers. When the Sixers played the Rockets Hawes was a handful for Dwight Howard. Dwight put up good numbers like Dwight always does, but so did Spencer Hawes and the Sixers got the win. Hawes stretched the floor causing dwight to leave the paint. That gave players like James Anderson and Evan Turner lanes to drive in. If Dwight stayed at home Hawes put up the three.

    Every team has someone who can play the stretch 4, but few can say they have a stretch 5. Hawes can help those teams in the west who may have to face guys like Dwight Howard in the playoffs. He’ll force guys like Aldridge, Howard, Jordan, Gasol (both) to leave the paint and open up driving lanes for their wings. Spence is an asset for playoff teams.
